Not The Dog

As a self-acclaimed book nerd
I will read almost anything
Fantasy, sci-fi, romance, comedy, horror
I enjoy all these genres in varying amounts

And I have amassed a great deal of respect for authors in general
Writing a book is hard and not for everyone
And so I accept that whomever I am reading the works of
Has poetic licence to do as they wish

And on the whole this is quite alright
I’m usually not too mad by the end

But for goodness sake
The one thing you must never, ever do
Not if you want me to read your books
Not if you want me to not hate you

Absolutely never is it alright
To kill off the dog

The protagonist, the girlfriend, the misunderstood villain
Sure

But never

EVER

NOT EVER NEVER

Not the dog.
