After celebrating premier pup Winston’s birthday yesterday, we were reminded of how thankful we are to have the ‘paws-itively’ pleasant company of the ModDogs around the office. Well, it turns out, we’re not the only ones who rely on the love and support of a faithful, furry friend to help get us through the workday.
Check out these doggone adorable pics from the 1970s to 1990s of renowned authors and their favorite tail-wagging companions, as captured by photographer Jill Krementz. From Kurt Vonnegut’s Lhasa apso to P.G. Wodehouse’s dachshund, these sweet pets prove that behind many a great writer there’s is a precious pooch.
