When I first moved out on my own, I kept feeling like their was gas leaking from my stove. Maybe there was–or not ;o) I think I was just letting my imagination get away with me. Either way, the thoughts created an excellent addition to my ever growing story, Heather’s Turn… This is the stove that inspired the ‘fire’ caused by Mr. Pritchard.

There’s various types of pit bulls. I found some interesting information on Blue Pits here. They also have a definition about the American Bully breed as well.
In the story….
A Blue Nosed Pit Bull
Character Description: Teacup is a blue nosed pit bull. She becomes Heather’s pet. She is named after the spinning teacups at the carnival where Heather lives…
In real life…
Teacup is the author’s mutt mixed with German Shepherd and Teacup Yorkshire. She loves to run and wouldn’t hurt a fly. Teacup was originally named T-bone by her first owner (teacup because instead of being a teacup Yorkie she’s a teacup shepherd!) and she is petrified of cats! Teacup is now ten years old but as energetic as ever.
When Teacup was little she chewed anything and everything. This is why she wears a metal collar. It’s the only one she can’t eat through! (She’s been known to eat right through a flea collar too.)
She can sit, roll over, play dead, ‘high five’, shake, take half a cookie, walk on a leash without the leash–right at your side! One of the best dogs the author has ever owned!
