The Most Influential Dog Ever

by Trevor McPherson

Our family dog was a low slung, cranky dachshund named Psychosis, one of the many factors precluding a normal childhood. Imagine if you will, the grade three writing assignment: "Tell Us About Your Family Pet." I love my Psychosis. Psychosis follows me everywhere. She is there when I wake up in the morning, and when I go to bed at night. When your parents are psychiatric nurses you grow up different than most kids, and the parent-teacher meetings confirm it.

Trevor McPherson really does have two psychiatric nurses for parents, and really did have a dog named Psychosis. Further ramblings are available here, and drastically abbreviated fiction is available via his 3S Stories Twitter account.

I can identify with this! Only with us, the dog was normal and my parents, sisters and I were psychotic.
