I confess today's' blog was inspired by Robin Kaye's blog two days ago, which introduced me to the utterly adorable breed of dog - the "puggle". Sooooo cute. Apparently, the puggle is a cross between a pug, a beagle, and the soft fuzzy center of ultimate cuteness.
In the historical I am currently writing, my heroine needs a companion. Ok, sure eventually she'd get the guy, but until then maybe I should give her a dog. Breeds of dogs have definitely changed over the years so I needed to do some research into what animals were actually present in the 14th century. Medieval folks enjoyed hunting dogs (release the hounds!) and had other working breeds, and even companion animals. Unfortunately, the puggle was not yet created.
So here is my question for all you dog-loving smart folks. What kind of a dog is Tibi? She is clearly a mix, but of what? Get creative and give me some ideas! Since she is no doubt a mix of mixes any answer is probably right!
