Meet my 165 pound writing muse

For the next week or so I won't have time to post so as I head into the final stretch of revisions on my novel, let me leave you with two snapshots of Sullivan (aka Sully), my writing muse.
You know how some dogs howl when you sing? Well, Sully doesn't do that. He does, however, cover his head with his paws and whine when I read out loud, something I've been doing a lot lately as I test dialogue pieces to make sure they sound alright. Clearly he has no taste, huh?

Sully is Touloose's nemesis. I tell him he's really a cat and will come to Hawaii soon.
Touloose is shaking in his boots.

He's 100% adorable.
I have always wanted a big
dog like this but my daughter
is as allergic as I am to dog
and cat hair. What a great
muse you have!!

Now THAT's my kinda dog.
What a face!

Trish Ryan said...

Aww...Sully looks like a sweetheart! My dog is 30 pounds, which I guess would make her a light snack for Sully :)

He's what my 20 lb Pug thinks he is!

Look at those eyes!
And he has such an enormous head. He's a newfoundland isnt' he?

Melissa Marsh said...

He is just adorable! My poor dog is suffering from a kennel cough right now and it's just breaking my heart.

Adam said...

I had a newfoundland
when I was a kid but it
was a landseer (black & white)
They are great dogs.
Gentle giants

Hol, he looks a lot like Montana.
I've never met Sully yet.
What a kewtie!!!

Rhonda said...

My goodness, he has the saddest face I've ever seen. Hmmmm....I wonder if they make earplugs for dogs (so he won't have to be sad that you're reading aloud). Good luck with the completion project.

Wow. Big big dog. You need a backhoe to scoop his poop??? He looks like a friendly, drooly doll. I like him.

Related to Clifford you say? He lives in Canada too, you know.

Travis Erwin said...

I love those eyes. Big dogs are great.

Newfie's are such wonderful dogs! What great pictures.

Samantha said...

Thank God he looks docile.
I'd crap myself if I came face to face with this big guy in an alley!

Wendy Roberts said...

He's gorgeous! What a wonderful muse :)

Brenda said...

What a lovely dog. I've fallen in love with Sully, just looking at his picture!
