Dogs are amazingly loyal and their ability to silently listen without judgment makes them a writer’s best friend.
Emily Dickenson’s words sum it up nicely, “Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.”
We’re grateful for these charming canines, who provide love, companionship and inspiration to some of our favorite authors of all time.

Stephen King, who has been terrifying readers for decades, doesn’t seem all too scary now that we’ve gotten a glimpse of, “Molly, aka the Thing of Evil.”
Molly, aka the Thing of Evil, has taken a paws-on selfie for all her Twitter fans, and forced me to post it. Or else. pic.twitter.com/e9IF1S70uJ

We can’t help, but fall in with love Avi, the “windblown dog,” belonging to Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent trilogy.
This sophisticated-looking pooch is companion to Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. It looks like he takes his treats seriously. Do you think he’s begging for bacon?

Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild and Brave Enough, posts pictures of her dog, Janie. She is incredibly cute, exuberant and happy. Wish we could cuddle her!
