Ghostbusters! Oops.... (And shouldn't that be "whom"? Hopefully the grammar police will believe me when I tell them I didn't make the graphic!)
I don't know what happened when you read the question, but I immediately had two alternatives pop into my head. Since they're both well over six feet tall and both have large canine companions, not only did I have to smile about the sheer serendipity, I had to figure out which character I was going to choose.
Both my characters are from series, which makes perfect sense. I've had a long time to see how both characters act in all sorts of extreme situations. Before I go any further, I'll put y'all out of your misery and tell you the two characters I'm talking about....
Todd Borg's Owen McKenna & Spot
Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire & Dog
Now you can see why I'm spoiled for choice. Both men are highly intelligent. Both men have excellent contacts in law enforcement. Both men are well-acquainted with the great outdoors (in case I've been hauled out to the middle of nowhere). When Owen and Walt make a promise, they keep it, and neither one of them know when to quit.
So. Which man do I choose to rescue me?
It all boils down to one thing: peripherals. Yes. Peripherals. With the kind of luck I have, I'd be kidnapped in the middle of the worst winter this country has ever seen and taken to some remote place in the mountains to shiver myself into oblivion. There's no doubt in my mind that both men will find me and rescue me, but there are other things to consider.
Spot may have a size advantage over Dog, but Dog has much longer thicker fur, hence he's going to be a bigger help in thawing me out. I'd also get to see just how funny Vic is, if Henry's eyes twinkle the way I think they do, and I might even get a ride in Rez Dog or Lola. So you see? It's all in the peripherals this time.
Sorry, Owen. Sorry, Spot. Man, I feel like a heel!
And now you know I have a question for all of you: Which character would you choose to come rescue you after you've been kidnapped? Inquiring minds want to know!
