It’s thawing. Bailey can now get anywhere without having to swim through the snow except for the drifts. So yesterday, when she was outside and we called her in, she turned the other way and kept going. Somewhere else. I had to put on boots and coat and cross the fields after her. I should have been angry but I know she needed to run after a winter of not being able to go anywhere except on cleared paths.
Yes, Snowball of Wolf Legend is based on Bailey, even though I didn’t realize it while I was writing the book. Sweet, wants to be good, is obedient most of the time but has a deep-seated need to be herself once in a while.
Writers use everyone they know in their stories. And, if they are like me, every animal they’ve ever met.
