Writers, Pets, Pics, and Submission Opportunities

We are loving, honoring, and educating about pets in this months issue of Thrive. Check us out: http://thriveswla.com/home-family/life-with-pets 

To the left and below are pics of my sidekick. My dachshund is named Dulcinea - Dulci for short. Bonus points if you get the literary reference.

Writing these article and rereading them recently made me curious about what type of pets writers prefer. I did a little research and found many of them have loved cats, dogs, and other usual household pets. However, just as many of them have preferred unusual, or endangered, ones including ravens and peacocks.

To find out what pets make the best partners for writers, or to peruse photographs of famous duos:
