My puppy is named for the character (not vice versa)

My puppy is named for the character (not vice versa)

Now that the book is out, some people who know me might have realized that my puppy and one of the main characters of The Demon Abraxas share the same name: Sabel. I just wanted to clarify that the character of Dr. Sabel Young came first. Then a clever person who was invested in me having a genetically-engineered super dog (i.e. a Border Collie & German Shepherd mix), suggested I name that super cute puppy, “Sabel.”

The character from the book, who doesn't even have a puppy, but I'm pretty sure approves of my having one.

My amazingly smart puppy is named for the even more amazingly smart Dr. Sabel Young of The Demon Abraxas.

However, there is one feature that both share: iron discipline. Although Sabel the character was trained by an order of witches and Sabel the pup was trained by professional dog trainers, they’re both really good at doing what’s needed even when it runs counter to what they want.

I didn't have a picture of human-Sabel doing anything particularly disciplined, but here you can see Sabel-pup determinedly not eating human food.
