The similarity is remarkable. Or perhaps the French writer looks like a puppy. The sweater is entirely because he was shaking like a little leaf outside in the cold. He is only 5lbs. Last night as he got used to my office, nosing around in my boxes, he paid particular attention to my archive boxes of Under the Shadow notes. I took this as some sort of external validation. He too is needy, constantly searching, wanting, wanting attention, up all night. Totally a writer-dog.
Also: Fun! Masha Tupitsyn is blogging. (And the title of her Tumblr, keeping with the day's theme: Love Dog).
