As I celebrate the release of my second book, The Adventures of Princess and Goose Book 2: Sir Logan and the Witches, I wanted to share the story of how we adopted Tiny, the inspiration for the silly Goose in the series.
Back in 2009, my wife and I happened across an adoption run by All 4 the Animals Rescue event where I instantly fell in love with a little emaciated pit bull named Rooney. We didn’t intend to adopt a new dog that day, as we had recently lost our long-time family member Ramzie. But we did adopt Rooney (now called Tiny) that day, and we brought him home in November 2009 after he recovered from his worm infection. Thirteen years later, Tiny is still a silly and loving member of our family.
It was important for me to share the love all these characters have for each other. Each book in the series concludes with photos and descriptions of Chloe (nickname Princess) and Tiny (nickname Goose) and their loving relationship with our now eight-year-old daughter, Isabella, and five-year-old son, Logan.
I’ve included two photos that All 4 the Animals Rescue posted when we adopted Tiny, along with a photo of all the kids together today.
