Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week's topic is Characters I’d Name a Pet After. I thought I'd split this into two categories. The first one is pets I've had that are named after characters and then the second is characters I'd love to name a pet after.
