“A dog lover of the highest order,” is how Gayle King introduced Carol Bryant when she and her Cocker Spaniel appeared on Oprah Radio’s Gayle King show to dish dogs. A frequent media contributor, Carol has appeared on television, radio, and in print.
As guest speaker at conferences and seminars about dog products and travel, she also has a passion for growing social media and helped one client land the “best dog blog” honor. A repeat nominee from the Dog Writers Association of America and writer for Dogster, she also works with BlogPaws pet blogger social media community and conferences.
Full Name: Carol Noel Bryant (born on Christmas Day, fa la la)
Age: Life begins after 40.
Location: A little town in northeastern Pennsylvania that I usually have to spell and explain when providing my address.
Where You Can Stalk Me on the Internet: My dog-centric blog, Fidose of Reality; my writer website; Facebook; and Twitter (where my favorite comedian ever, Jimmy Fallon, follows me), @CarolNBryant and @FidoseofReality.
What I Do for a Living: Writer, blogger, social media and PR, pet product and pet travel expert.
What I Do for Fun: Write short stories and a novel, visit pet supply stores with my dog, connect with other dog lovers at expos and events, listen to Clay Aiken music, and diversify my shoe collection and my dog’s squeaky ball assortment.
The Furry Members of My Household Are: Dexter, my second American Cocker Spaniel, affectionately named for the books and series of the same name. My heart was inspired to write for and about dogs by my first Cocker Spaniel, Brandy Noel.
My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Dog news and products, dog health and travel information, celebrities with dogs, and suspense!
My Pet Peeves Are: People who work with, for, or around dogs and couldn't care less about them. How is that possible? Have you seen the wag of a dog’s tail?
My Guilty Pleasures Are: Reality television shows, playing my music too loud while chair dancing, and books where I can feel and turn the pages manually.
How I Deal with Dog Hair: Scotch tape turned inside out (on me, not the dog).
What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: My heart beats dog, so I am living my dream.
