GalleyCat readers around the globe have joined our annual Pet Parade, sending photos of their literary pets.

Author Joanne Levy shared a picture of her real life Galley Cat: “Recently, I got a copy of Caroline Starr Rose’s MAY B., which my cat Chester did not want to give up.  I forced the issue and was finally able to read the book, but not before it received a lot of kitty love (well deserved – the book is awesome!).”

More photos follow below–we will collect all the entries at this link.

“Oh, hai, my name is Angela Dah-ling. My human, author Allia Zobel Nolan, wants me to wish you all a healthy and happy New Year. For this, I’m promised warm cream and tuna. So considered yourself wished.”

Sylvia Frezzolini (Book Designer) and John B. Severance (Author) wote: “Sophie (our muse) is worried that she hasn’t been a good dog this year.”

Peter M. Blaiwas submitted that picture of his office cat.

Reader Steve Duno wrote: “My dog Lou is a real life Rin Tin Tin.  Lou caught robbers and rapists, saved my life several times, helped teach sign language to kids, worked as a therapy dog, and helped to save the lives of hundreds of aggressive dogs.  Along literate lines, he had a vocabulary of 150+ words, and knew sign language.”

Gloria Taylor Weinberg submitted this photo of her literary dog, Dudley.

Sandy Klaud wrote: This is Choxie, the hambone of dachshunds.  He is one of the friendliest four footed guys I know AND, a rescue. ”

HarperCollinsChildren’s Books VP of integrated marketing Diane Naughton sent that picture of her Christmas puppy, Lucy.
