American Gods - Neil Gaiman

I have a theory. I think Shadow is Coyote. Here's why: 


  1. He's been dreaming of Native American imagery and one of his dreams implies past lives.
  2. Laura called him Puppy, a kind of canine (Coyotes are canines, right?).
  3. He likes to do coin tricks, which seems fitting for a trickster god. 
  4. He in general seems to be very natural at trickery/deceit.


I'm not sure if I'm right or not. It was just a theory that came to me on the drive.  So we'll see. 


Side note: The dogs are well. Little one is currently staring at the door waiting for Mom to come home and the big one is sleeping.
