Rex the Hamster (Stephanie Plum)-Though we only ever read about Rex running around in circles on the wheel in his cage, he’s always a source of comfort to Stephanie Plum when her life goes haywire, which is all the time.
Hedwig the Owl (Harry Potter)-Mostly used to deliver mail, Hedwig was a gift to Harry from Rubeus Hagrid and became Harry’s loyal companion in the wizarding world.
Backup the Pit Bull (Veronica Mars)-We never saw him very often, but beefy Backup was snarky teen sleuth Veronica Mars’ muscle and always had her back. BTW, if you’re a Veronica Mars fan, you’ll want to check this link out!
Fluffy the Chihuahua (Sierra Lavotini)-Fluffy was the child with fur of wisecracking exotic dancer/amateur sleuth Sierra Lavotini and could usually be found riding shotgun during her investigations.
Toby the Jack Russell Terrier (Peter Grant)-London police constable Peter Grant inherited Toby from a murder victim and Peter takes the magic sensing pooch with him when he becomes the apprentice of the last registered wizard in England.
Mahalia the Siamese Cat (Kendra Clayton)-Full disclosure: this is my mystery series and Mahalia actually belongs to Kendra’s landlady. In fact, Kendra and the cat hate each other. But Mahalia was once instrumental in helping Kendra solve a crime so I felt she deserved a mention.
