The ONE song that inspired Chapter One
My ENTIRE Playlist While Writing Rudy's Rescue
The Dogs that Inspired Me
This was the very first picture I came across that made me think of how Rudy's Rescue would begin. I can not find the owner of this photo.
This is E.Z. Kiel and he lives on a ranch in New Mexico.

2017, at the beginning of my “Rudy” writing adventure, my sponsor and I were driving through New Mexico and this dog caught my eye.
At first glance, I thought he needed to be rescued but soon found through a quick visit with his owner that this dog does not need rescuing. In fact, he helps with a variety of rescued animals on his little ranch.
When I offered to pay for grooming, but his owner said, “Oh, my, no! He’d freak out. This is a cow-dog, not a city dog. He sleeps with the pigs and cows.” And he assured me he’ll only tolerate garden hose baths.
The owner gave me permission to use E.Z. Kiel for my website and the pictures I took have been an endless source of inspiration while writing.
Unfortunately, Zeke’s owner passed away not long after. May he rest in peace. He was one of the sweetest men I’ve ever met and E.Z. Kiel misses him, I’m sure.
