This is my dog Isidingo. I love her more than any dog I’ve ever owned.
We adopted her at the saddest point of my life, when my husband Luke was
dying, and she has been at my heels ever since, following me from room to
room, and sleeping next to my bed at night. She’s my comforter and
protector.
But she’s getting old. She was horribly abused for the first two years of
her life and then spent a year hiding under the Wendy house in the dog
shelter before we adopted her, so she’s ageing faster than most ten year old
dogs.
I can’t bear to think of losing her, so i wrote her into Elevation as an
ancestor dog who is immortal. She will stay at Ebba’s heels throughout the
trilogy.
She’s lying on a rag rug I made from scraps of lycra, handknotted into
hessian.
