Author offers novel reward for beagle’s return
Bring author Dennis Lehane’s dog back to him and he’ll name a character in one of his next novels after you.
That’s the promise that Lehane made on his Facebook page after his beloved beagle disappeared from his Boston home this week.
WCVB.com reported that Tessa, went missing Monday, and was last seen around 4:30 p.m. that afternoon near a gas station in the neighborhood of Allston.
Lehane is the author of several best selling novels, including “Mystic River” and “Gone Baby Gone.”
He posted on Facebook that Tessa was microchipped, but that she wasn’t wearing any tags when she was left out in the yard and apparently jumped a fence and ran away.
“It’s possible she’s staying in some good Samaritan’s home right now or has tucked herself away on a porch,” Lehane wrote. “But if anyone sees her or knows of her whereabouts, please reach out to this page.”
The reward: “Naming of character in the next book for anyone who gets her back to us! (No, really!)”
“She’s smart, fast, and immeasurably sweet. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body,” he posted.
Lehane was getting numerous suggestions from his Facebook fans, from hiring a doggie detective to assembling a beagle posse to search for Tessa.
