Having read many newspaper accounts about the heroics of dogs who had saved their masters lives during a fire gave me the idea for this story. I lifted the name of the dog trainer, Mr. Baskerville, from the Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Hound of Baskerville. Mr. Rene, from Nick & Knobby In The Daring Escape, reminded me of a nervous TV director I had worked with as a musician in New York City. So I decided to include him again as one of the characters, giving added humor to the story.
