Brindle is Beautiful
The other night I showed Brando the finished book with his mug on the cover. I wasn't really expecting much of a response, but he stared at it, sniffed at it and wagged his tail. Then I put it down and headed to the front door for our walk. Brando turned around, ran back to the table where the book was resting, and pressed his nose to it again.
I'm glad he's happy. It has been suggested that his photograph is so terrifying we'll have trouble booking any media to support the book. The reaction, I'm told, was "visceral."
Brindle dogs are--I have been told--among the most difficult to adopt out of shelters. People don't want them. The number one most difficult to get a home for is any black dog. I have been told this all across the country. So if we changed Brando into the black coated dog, that wouldn't help.
If he was snow white, however, I'm sure no one would have a problem.
