Year of the Dog

According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, 2008 was the year of the rat, but in our house, it was the year of the dog. Specifically, a golden retriever we named Zoe Isabella.

I started on romance in early 2009, and Zoe has been with me from the very beginning, forcing me to leave my writing cave for fresh air and sunshine.

So, since she turned nine this week: Happy birthday, Zoe!
