Fritz (dog)

Fritz is the name of the bull terrier who appears in all of Chris Van Allsburg's books. The author needed a model for the dog in his first book (The Garden of Abdul Gasazi) and convinced his brother-in-law to purchase a bull terrier. The real-life Fritz was named Winston. After Winston died, Chris Van Allsburg decided to include it in all of his books.
