Pets and Their Children

Beezus These days I am cat sitting for the lovely Ruby and Chloe.  Snugglebuns Ruby has a wet nose, which makes me want to call her "Nosy", which was (of course) the name of Beezus and Ramona's cat.  Beverly Cleary wrote the greatest books -- such great stories and such great writing*.

We don't have any such storytelling here at the Archer Pelican, but I can offer you this short list of pets from fiction, and invite you to remember the names of their children (or in some cases, their adults) and the books or shows that tell their story.  I'm sure you know more of these pairs than I...

Loony and Miranda [I think that Marianne may have a leg up on these]
Ribsy
Old Yeller
Pilgrim
Gleek
Argos
Grimalkin
Thomas Gray [Timmy, do you know this one?]
Morris
Bruiser
Jack
Sham
Scabbers

*extra-fitting, if you read about Beverly Cleary's childhood.

Enid Blyton! Let's have a wizard picnic with potted meat sandwiches and hard-boiled eggs and lashings of lemonade!
