Pete the Pup
is a character in the "archy and mehitabel"
writings of Don Marquis
. Pete is a Boston Bull Terrier with a raw, passionate joy for life and devotion to his ‘master’. Like Marquis' other animal characters, Pete types his poetry at night on the author’s typewriter (seldom capitalizing or using punctuation). Unlike much of the other character's contributions, Pete writes of his uncomplicated life without strong political and social references.
