Writers & Pets

One thing I have discovered as I meet writers is that almost all of us have pets. In fact, a lot of writers are huge animal lovers. I'm not exactly sure why that is, but it's definitely more than a trend.


I have my own personal baby, and that's my Sheltie, Bogey. Bogey is the perfect dog - he stays in the house all day while I'm at work and doesn't bother a thing. He likes to play - God we play ball and play ball and play ball....well, you get the idea. But that's a good thing because I've been walking him every day and that way we both get some much needed exercise.

So today I thought I'd share some Bogey pics with you, so you can see my "child."



This is Bogey doing one of his favorite things - playing in the sprinkler.




This is Bogey in one of his preferred sleeping positions. You gotta love a dog who's that comfortable perched on the back of the couch.
This is Bogey as a baby - is it any wonder I had to have him??????

He's so cute!!! I especially love his puppy picture. :)

Thanks, tori! When I was looking for a new breed of dog to buy, I read a statement that said "if you mind is not made up do NOT go look at Sheltie puppies because you WILL leave with one."

I'm thinking probably true. :)

He was an adorable puppy. When I see grown-up Bogey, I think of Lassie. He is still a handsome fellow.

Thanks, dru! I'll tell him you said so. :)

What a sweetie! Thanks for sharing some photos!

I've been MIA for awhile, Jana. Got my own crap going on - but I'm sorry to hear about your recent troubles. Been there - it's hard as hell. Let me know if you ever need to just "blow off some steam" - I'll be here for you.

Have I told you how much I LOVED "Unlucky"? It was WONDERFUL! I enjoyed every word!

Aw. What a cutie! I remember when you got him :) He's soooo adorable. It's interesting about writers loving animals - there definitely is something to that. I love animals myself!!! And we have 'three kids' - all of the feline version! haha Plus an aqua frog and a betta fish.
