Linus: Jack Russell Terrier, Parsons. Abandoned. Found in a creek, waterlogged and half-drowned. Has severe, owner-directed aggression, seizures, fear, and scar tissue inside and out. Needs a blue blanket to tremble beneath, a thumb to suck.
Me: Writer. Griever. Litrovert. Headbanger. Cat-lover who adopted a dog and for six months, Linus gave me a reason to get out of bed.
