Series: A Liz Adams Mystery
AUTHOR STACY WILDER SHARES FUN FACTS ABOUT HER LABRADORS
(And names which one was the model for Duke, in Charleston Conundrum)
Our first Labrador, Bear, was a surprise first-year anniversary gift from my sisters. Bear had the special talent of being able to open the refrigerator. We had to keep a child lock on it.
Our second Labrador, Buddy, had a sense of humor, my sister-in-law and niece were watching him while we were out of town and he stole her car keys and made her chase him around the house to retrieve them.
Our third Labrador, Rudy, was the athlete. He could scale a six-foot fence. Rudy was Buddy’s guilty conscience. Whenever Buddy did something wrong. Rudy would hang his head. One Christmas, I was to host the family Christmas Day dinner and Buddy and Rudy helped themselves to the beef tenderloin that was defrosting in the sink while we were with family Christmas Eve. How they managed to get to it is still a mystery.
Our current Lab, Eve, is the most communicative of all our Labs. She howls the words, “I love you,” for her breakfast in the mornings. The Labrador, Duke, in Charleston Conundrum was modeled after Eve.
