When I decided to write a werewolf novel, I had the clever thought that my werewolf should have a dog. My novel is called Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale. Since Thal is such a handsome dude and a bit of a bad ass, I thought it would be fun to give him a small dog. He does not need some big bruising beast to advertise his power. He has the confidence to go about with a little dog.
His dog's name is Pistol. He's a rat terrier sort of fellow of whatever breed was scratching about during the Renaissance, the era in which the novel is set. Pistol is helpful to his beloved werewolf master on many occasions despite his diminutive stature.
The little dog eases the loneliness of the werewolf. Even though Thal has friends, his dog is who truly understands him.
After a tough day of being persecuted as a Devil worshipper and getting shot at it, the werewolf really appreciates a companion who will cheerfully wag his tail and be ready to go out to dinner.
Pistol also represents Thal's inner kindness. Although Thal is a powerful werewolf, his heart is attuned to those who have less power and he is often sympathetic to their plights.
