The Real Buster(s) From S.O.S.

Or, Photos of the Sweetest Labradors in the Whole World

Can you picture Buster in these two beautiful dogs? Change one’s fur to blond and give him a bit of a jumping problem, and it’s Holden’s little buddy in my new release, Spell of Summoning.

Below is the view I imagine Rebecca had moments before this scene: (Sorry, Becca!)

          Buster’s ears perked up. Holden dug in his heels, but Buster was eighty-five pounds of overgrown puppy. He launched himself at Rebecca full force as if he had springs for feet. The leash jerked out of Holden’s hand, and before he could stop him, his dog scratched both her knees, untucked her white blouse, and slammed her against her car.

As a bonus, here is the (fictional) Bull Dog Inn in (the very real) Jacksonville, NC–external staircase and all. This is not Rebecca’s favorite place. 😉

What I imagine the Powell House looks like. Just picture a bigger tree in the yard and missing roof tiles.

Holden’s stripped down 1979 Jeep. Can’t you see Buster sitting in the front seat?

    I loved the dog scenes. Eveytime Buster was in a scene, I would laugh outloud. Thank you, Anna, for adding such a human element to your story. For those of us who love animals, we instantly related and fell in love with Holden for having such a delightful dog. Holden had us the minute Buster jumped on Becca and gave her big sloppy kisses.
