“This is embarrassing.”

A hellhound is a supernatural dog. The most famous hellhound was Cerberus who in Greek mythology guarded the gates of the Underworld (see pic of Roman statue of Cerberus). Cerberus is depicted with three heads. The legends of the hellhound are found in many countries of the world. They were first mentioned in Britain in the twelfth century. In western Europe, hellhounds are often associated with The Wild Hunt in which deceased heroes on horses accompanied by hellhounds pursue criminals and lost souls across the land. They are often described as having black fur, glowing red or yellow eyes and super strength. They may also be associated with death, graveyards, and fire.
Our own personal hellhound is pictured also. Four years ago Bruiser, a Boxer mix, was a rescue with three previous owners. He had to be treated for severe heartworms and last year had two knee surgeries. He’s part of the family now, an outstanding guard dog and companion for our daughter. He, however, believes he is a 70 pound lapdog. The animal rescue people told us he would do anything for a treat. Guess they were right. Didn’t say he liked it, but the treat was worth it.
Tomorrow, Graeme Brown’s Tale of the Paranormal
Life has been getting in the way again, but I think my train is back on track. Two moves and fifteen gallons of paint later, everyone who needed moving and/or something painted is now moved and/or residing in newly-painted splendor. My stack of business work that accumulated when I was doing my family’s bidding is gone. A double garage that was once full of “stuff” from two moves – neither of them mine – can now accommodate my car. Other than puppy-sitting Bruiser – my daughter’s pound puppy – for the next week while she plays on an island paradise in the Caribbean, I’m almost caught up at home. (Check out an old pic of our boy!) So progress has been made.
My first contemporary military story was released this month – Search & Rescue from Secret Cravings Publishing – and Finding Eve – the second of the Lyons’ Den shapeshifter stories from Champagne Books – has passed its final proof.
Next Monday, I’ll finally post The Next Big Thing Blog Hop at my group blog Southern Sizzle Romance after being tagged by Celia Breslin two weeks ago. I’m telling far more about myself and my latest story, Search & Rescue, than I planned. I’ll tag Champagne author Graeme Brown in The Hop. Also on the 29th, I’m posting at Love Romances Café which brings me to today’s effort – finishing the post for Dawn by tomorrow. So it’s back to work for me. Maybe I should post my progress as I struggle through the next week preparing for my August writing marathon.
