Your Furry, Feathery, Hoofed and Finny Friends

Many of you tell us about your dogs, cats, horses…. We have heard stories about rabbits, cockatiels, owls, turtles, or guppies.

One of our guestbook visitors sent us beautiful pictures of her horse Dixie, and gave us the idea of opening a gallery for your four-legged, beaked, and scaley pals.

And now, please enjoy browsing our Fury-Pluto-Garfield-Tweety-Nemo-Gallery :)

<p>Dear Cornelia, here is the picture of one of my best friends I've ever had, Pippi. I took it on September 29th, 2014. She was cute, naughty and kind. She died last fall, and I really would like to see her here on your website beside the other beloved ones. Thanks Maryam Azizi</p>
<p>This is my dog, Holly. She is a miniature dachshund. Most of the time I read any of Cornelia Funke's books I am with Holly. She snuggles up next to me, and I read for as long as four hours nonstop at the most. I love the Inkheart trilogy and Reckless. I am starting Fearless right now, and so far I am loving it! Thanks! Emmaline Stiekes</p>
<p>Dear Cornelia, these are my guinea pigs, Cocoa and Hayley. Best, Tegan</p>

<p>This is our 'orchestra dog' Eolo. He was named after the Roman god of the Winds. He was rescued from an Italian killing station and then adopted by our manager. And he lives up to his name (whenever he is not sleeping on our tour bus ;)). Best, Mondwoelfin</p>
<p>This is my bunny George. I read Dragon Rider to him and I'm quite sure he liked it :) Best, Chiara</p>
<p>These are my two kittens. Theresa :)</p>
<p>Hello Cornelia you may remember me from the Bath literature festival. I asked you a question I am about 10. I am starting my own book/review crew with my mates. I found your website (beautiful) and in my awe I wanted to send you this photograph of my cat Socks.</p>

<p>Camille's furry friends Sorrel and Inkspell</p>
<p>This is Squirrel, the funniest rabbit. I love her. Best, Camille :)</p>
<p>I LOVE your books. All of them. My favorite characters (out of all the books) are probably Scipio, Dustfinger, Sorrel, and Fox. And Capricorn, because he's just plain cool (even if he is evil). Of course, everyone else is pretty darn awesome, too! I would like you to put this picture of Reginald, my turtle, on your website, please. Regi is rather small, and not very friendly, but he's cool to watch swim. We also have another cat, Sam, three guinea pigs, a goat, and a bunch of chickens( who are on strike and have stopped laying eggs). Thank you for sharing your talent with people, and I can't wait to read your next book! Sincerely, Lydia Smith</p>
<p>Meet Chiko (a common name), 3 years old, a Shih Tzu. Cute ain't it :PBest, Winston from Indonesia</p>
<p>This is Nora's bunny friend Hoppel :)</p>
<p><em>A long time ago two homeless dogs walked slowly on a dusty road. But just then one of the dogs found treasure. And became greedy. The other dog did not like being greedy. It made him feel sad. So he ran away. The next day the greedy dog had learnt a lesson. He learnt that friendship is very important. The end</em> By Isabel Santos</p>
<p>This is my dog Taffy. She is now 6 years old. We got her from the animal shelter and she is my best friend.</p>

<p>Hello! My name is Chiara and I'm 11. I find Cornelia's books really good, especially Inkheart and Inkspell. Now I'm going to start Inkdeath and I think it's going to be really good! Here is my turtle!</p>

<p>Hey, thank you so much for letting me send you pictures of Dixie. One of them is of just her in general and the other one is of her in our trailer getting ready to go to a show! As you can tell she ready to go with her hay! I love that picture so I decided to send it to you. It would be awesome if you could put them on the website! Thanks so much, Horsefreak :)</p>
<p>This is Ghost, the big, white, sweet-tempered (unless you are a duck) furry friend of Cornelia's brother Elmar and his family.</p>
<p>Dear Cornelia, these are my cats Neza and Navan. Neza got her name from an article about my other favourite animals (mountain gorillas), and Navan is a town on the east coast of Ireland. It's not always as harmonious as on the picture. There's also quarrel sometimes. It's a pleasurable feeling to have them around :) Best, Christiane Fischer</p>
<p>This is my soulmate! Blossom is no longer with us, but not a day goes by that I don't think of her. She was a great companion and a true friend. Her urn stands in my room. Best, Natalie</p>

<p>Hi Cornelia, here is a picture of my Australian Cattle Dog Stella Bea outside resting. I was hoping you could put this picture of her on your website. And can it say '<i>My greatest thing in my life is my Australian cattle dog Stella Bea</i>' From your fan, Cassidy Smart</p>
<p>Hi. I'm Erika from Germany and I'm 11 years old. These two are my duckies Otti and Lotti. They spend the whole day waddling around. Unfortunately they are quite jumpy. Best, Erika</p>
<p>This is my gentle furry friend Cheeky. The picture was taken about a year ago. It is the cutest photo I could find of her. Best, Lisa</p>
<p>Hi! This is my sweet cat Lovie. She is a Maine Coon and a real cat of prey, as you can see. (-: Best, Jeannine</p>
<p>Here is Wellington, my most favourite of all furry friends. As soon as he hears my car coming down the road, he is by the gate, a great smile on his face, his tail wagging and a list of all the things he wants us to do together in the next five minutes. He then does a mad dash round the garden before landing at my feet in an ecstasy of joy. What better friend could one ask for…. (Wellington is the doggy of Cornelia's friend Elinor Bagenal, who works at <a href='http://www.doublecluck.com'>Chicken House</a>)</p>
<p>I am Angie, Cornelia's assistant in LA. And this is my cutie Princess Leia. She is half Poodle half Jack Russell. They call this mix a Jackapoo! She is a very sweet and loving puppy. She is only 1 year old. She is very mischevious though. We can't leave food on the table and walk away. She will steal it! When she goes outside to play and wants to come back in, she let's us know by jumping up and down at the door with a window over and over again until we notice a little dog head popping up over and over again in the window.</p>
<p>Dear Cornelia, this is my dog in glasses! Emilia Rose Allsop</p>
<p>This is my dachshund Pauli sitting among my 'Funke library'. Warmest wishes from Vienna. Ella</p>
<p>This is my bunny, Angel!! Love from Giovanna</p>
