Pet Parade Concludes with GalleyCats & Dogs

By Jason Boog Comment

Welcome to the final installment of our annual pet parade, a holiday display of literary pets around the globe. GalleyCat readers have sent in pictures all week–the largest response we’ve ever received to the pet parade. Look for more pet pictures all week.

Hal Leonard Performing Arts publicity and marketing manager Diane Levinson sent that photo of Boomer the GalleyCat: “When Diane works at home (which she does a couple of days a week), Boomer loves to sit on the bench cushion right next to the computer where he can keep an eye on what she’s up to and occasionally ask for a belly rub. In this pic, taken a few weeks ago, he’s hanging out next to some current books Diane is working on—The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, December 8: 1980, and Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas–plus the all-important synonym finder.”

Author Vanessa Kelly sent this dog book review: “Yukon the Norwegian Elkhound is the family dog, and he’s a great reader – especially of historical romance, as you can tell by his most recent Christmas present. He also likes to do book reviews on my website. Here’s his latest review.”

Reader Julia Karr submitted this photo: “It’s Edward J Cattingham, sitting on the box containing ARCs of my debut novel. Guarding them, of course!”

Rose Fox sent that picture of one of her literary pets: “Sam the cat is especially helpful, or at least she thinks she is.”

Moshe Feder submitted that photoe: “Nemo (top) and Blaise (bottom), two of my three cats, sleepily guard a chunk of ms. in the process of being edited (note red marks). I don’t recall which book this was, but it was for Tor, where I’m a consulting editor.”

Author Sandra Gail Lambert sent this photo: “Here’s Pippin – a writer’s low backrest and hot pack all in one.”
