Two Bachelors

Never did I ever think I would own an English Bull Terrier, I’m not sure I had really seen one before I laid eyes on one at my then-employer’s-soon-to-be-boyfriend’s Rosh Hashanah holiday party. Even less did I think that I could love an animal so much that it would become such an important part of my life.

I would like to introduce you to two special characters in my life, the original and the fictitious: Rolex my English Bull Terrier and Howard the product of many hours spent observing Rolex. Howard is the main character of the children’s book series I am currently creating. Howard is also an English Bull Terrier with one black ear and an unnecessarily long nose, exactly like the original. Howard begins the series as an easy-going, kind-hearted and definitely gullible young pup, who ages into a comical, seasoned gentleman dog. Sometime in the middle of his life, Howard meets Helen, an uncommonly striking Miniature English Bull Terrier who leads with quiet unassuming strength which often saves Howard in their many adventures together.
