"It is fatal to let any dog know that he is funny, for he immediately loses his head and starts hamming it up."-P.G. Wodehouse
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881 - 1975) was an enormously popular and prolific writer who produced about 100 books over 70 years. In Jeeves, the ever resourceful 'gentleman's personal gentleman', and the good-hearted young blunderer Bertie Wooster, he created two of the best known and best loved characters in twentieth century literature. Wodehouse was part-author and writer of some fifteen plays and 250 lyrics for some 30 musical comedies. The Times hailed him as a 'comic genius recognized in his lifetime as a classic and an old master of farce'. He was created a Knight of the British Empire in the 1975 New Year's Honours List.
According to 'P.G. Wodehouse: A Portrait of a Master,' his dachshund's name was 'Jed.' He seemed to be quite the animal lover and was often photographed with his pets. Read more about P.G. Wodehouse at wikipedia.
