Famous Writers and their Dogs

Flavorwire recently posted a collection of photos of famous writers with their pets, including the likes of Kurt Vonnegut, John Steinbeck, Edith Wharton, and Virginia Woolf and their beastly best friends—in some cases cats and there is even a peacock! The pictures—not to mention some of the quotes given by the writers in regards to their dogs—are so charming we had to share a few…

woolf1Virginia Woolf and her dog Pinka. “This you’ll call sentimental — perhaps — but then a dog somehow represents — no I can’t think of the word — the private side of life — the play side.”

steinbeck1 John Steinbeck and Charley. “I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.”

wharton Edith Wharton with double pups. “My little dog — a heartbeat at my feet.”

sendak1 Maurice Sendak with Herman (after Melville). “I hate people.”
