As anyone who follows me on Twitter knows, I am the minion to proud owner of an ex-racing greyhound, AKA The Hound, who takes his retirement very seriously. So when the Thirteeners’ very own April Tucholke dared me to draw a comic strip about him, I couldn’t resist. Without further ado, I present to you… a guide to building your very own Hound!
If you’re interested in having a Hound of your own, why not check out the greyhound project. (If you’re in the UK, check out the Retired Greyhounds Trust. Or, if you happen to live in Oregon, by chance, go to Homes for Hounds.)
Emma Pass grew up at an environmental studies centre near London, went to art school in Cornwall and now lives in the North-East Midlands with her artist husband, where she has a day job at her local library. She is represented by Carolyn Whitaker at London Independent Books and her YA dystopian thriller ACID is out from Random House Children's Books in early 2013. You can find her blog here, and catch her procrastinating on Twitter here. She also blogs over at The Lucky 13s.
Next up: Us. We're doing a special Friday the 13th thing on April 13th. There will be cool prizes.
