Are dogs an author’s best friend? It’s possible. A few of my author friend graciously agreed to share their pets with us.

Kim Davis was the first to reply to my request for pet pictures. This is Missy, Kim’s 17-month-old mini Goldendoodle. She thinks that whenever Kim sits down to write, Missy needs to demand her attention. In order to get her words in, Kim gets up 1-1/2 hours earlier than usual. Kim also gets writing done while Missy is sleeping or playing with friends at doggy daycare.

Missy’s person, Kim Davis is the author of the Cupcake Catering Mystery Series.

Money can buy a good dog, but love makes his tail wag.
