The Wisdom of Bug
By Alyson Root
Can three hearts find their forever home this Christmas?
Evelyn Crawford is having a tough time of late. Not only has her dad taken off on an impromptu holiday with his new floozy, but he’s also dropped Evelyn in the deep end at work. Becoming the CEO of a multi-million-pound pet supply empire was not on Evelyn’s horizon, but here she is. Battling a disgruntled board, fending off unreasonable budget requests, and catching her semi-serious girlfriend with another woman all before the dreaded festive season. What’s so good about Christmas, anyway?
Alyssa Fox is sick to death of her dog rescue centre, being used as a Christmas gift store. Don’t these people know a dog is for life, not just for Christmas? Hell, there are TV adverts about it. No matter how many times she delivers the same speech to potential dog owners, those poor pups always end up right back where they started as soon as the shine wears off.
Well, not this year! No, this year Alyssa has taken action. Four Paws Dog Rescue will close for two months, starting November 1st. Now Alyssa just has to come up with a way to keep her dogs from going crazy with boredom. Adoption might be off the table for the pack, but they still need socializing. Enter Crawford Pet Supplies. The answer to Alyssa’s problem. A partnership with the company’s HQ building in London is just the ticket. What could go wrong?
Is it possible that the hard-to-pin-down Alyssa Fox has met her match? Will the festive season prove to be more magical than Evelyn ever thought possible? Who knows? Well, maybe a wise little dog called Bug.
