Lore du Jour ~ Dog days

A serial writer’s notebook ~ from the pen behind Lore of the Underlings, an episodic epic…

We were recently in the wilds of Quebec and spotted these beautiful dog-like wolves. I think they pair well with this spot of Lore, from Episode 6, “Meeting Minyon”:

“Hold there elderman! Not so fast — only the Treasured of Treasured may pass.” The doorman waved a parchment skin clutched tightly in his unarmed hand. “The Treasuror’s left a special list and your name isn’t on it.”

Minyon bowed to the ardent Guard as if he’d expected every word. “Good soldier, I thank you for your service. Of course I would expect no less.” His voice rolled out in a velvet fog, thick as the drunk from a keg of grog.

Axon and Eela prowled in the background, awaiting a sign, their father’s command. Two trained attack dogs, canines Myne, minding their master from behind…

Happy dog days, everyone!
