My Author & Pet Pairings


The idea for this post actually came to me while working on our Jules Verne feature awhile ago. I couldn’t help but think that his beard reminded me of a terrier’s chin.

My quirky mind went from there, matching authors with what I thought would be (or would have been) a suitable pet for them – based on appearance alone, of course.

So here you go, some of my author/pet pairings:

jules_verne-portrait2scottish_terrier2 Jules Verne & Scottish Terrier
agatha_christie_portrait2pug-dog-agatha1 Agatha Christie & Pug Dog
walt-whitmanold-english-sheepdog Walt Whitman & Old English Sheepdog
Daphne du Maurierpersian_cat Daphne du Maurier & Persian Cat
dashiell-hammettpartridge-cochin-hen Dashiell Hammett & Partridge Cochin Hen
malcom-gladwellbichon-frise Malcolm Gladwell & Bichon Frise
rowlingsaldfukiheassd-rowlingjpg J.K. Rowling & Afghan Hound
