Simple! That cute little dog is a she, and her name is "Peanut". She belongs to the heroine of Defending Glory, book one of the Piedmont Island Trilogy series. Peanut also had a puppy, and her name is...yup, silly and sappy as it sounds, Mac, the hero of Defending Glory, named the pup "Butter".
It seems only fitting to share this snippet from Defending Glory with you on this oh, so, special day. Enjoy!
“Peanut! Butter!” Glory shouted.
Mac strolled down the porch steps to the sandy cove beach, watching his wife playing with the dogs. She called their names once more, and tossed the tennis ball as far as she could throw it.
Peanut’s saffron colored offspring, whom Mac had had the honor of christening “Butter” moments after she and two other puppies were born, romped alongside the older dog. The two
’s zoomed past him, their tiny tails
wagging and each hoping to reach the cherished toy first. Chihuahua
As always, their antics made Glory giggle with delight.
She waved, and welcomed him with open arms. “Good morning, sleepyhead.”
