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

    Hahahaha! Kath, I love this blog post. Dashiell Hammett looks so much like that chicken! And good job choosing the photos of the authors that most looked like the pet choices, too.

    ..but if Agatha Christie weren’t deceased, I think you might be in trouble. ;)

    ok, I couldn’t help it. Take it off if you must.

    ….can’t…stop….giggling….

  3. Ha ha! I think your Herta Muller & Aye Aye Lemur pairing is a bit more daring than my Agatha Christie one. At least the pug is cute!! :)

  4. Ok, I’m snort laughing through this entire piece. Seriously funny. Well done!

  5. Hehe, realy? Why my comment was removed? I really like Aye Aye Lemur!
