Name the Dog Contest


Win a paperback copy of Seduced by the Screenwriter

The dog days of summer aren’t completely over! I’m awarding a proof copy of the “hot off the press” Seduced by the Screenwriter paperback to the person who suggests the name I choose for the dog in the upcoming Hollywood Hero, book 3 in the Hollywood in Muskoka series.

In Hollywood Hero, Halden Armstrong and Wendy Davila stay at a remote Muskoka fishing lodge. Yes, you guessed it…this is the “cooped up together in a remote cabin” romantic trope. The A-list actor and his personal assistant have such busy lives in LA. How else can I get those two to spend time together overnight?

The dog-in-residence at the fishing lodge is an old Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  My family had two beloved female Chesapeakes when I was growing up. They were both very smart, loved the water, and were protective of us kids. Although many Chesapeakes are owned by duck hunters and are trained to retrieve ducks, our dogs only ever retrieved balls and sticks.

Chesapeakes have thick, curly short hair. In Hollywood Hero, the female is this cinnamon color, and is eleven years old.

To enter this contest, put your dog name suggestion in a comment on this blog post by September 30. This contest is only open to  subscribers of my blog, so you have a good chance to win! I will announce the winners on October 1.

Name this old female Chesapeake!
