Hounded by Woes, Miamians Beg for More of Ryan the Advice Dog
How does a dog get his own column? Nepotism. Ryan lives in Key Biscayne with John Keasler, 66, a Miami News columnist. "I was damn sick and tired of writing five times a week," says Keasler, who turned his Friday slot over to his hound. Keasler and his wife, Margery, a free-lance book editor, insist they give Ryan no help, except with his spelling. "He's a lousy speller," says Keasler. "Like many fine writers, detail work is not his forte."
Attracting a following is. Response to Ryan has been so favorable that some readers want his column to run every day. "But running him once a week is all I can handle," says Miami News editor Howard Kleinberg. "I'm getting calls from possums and pigs who want columns. We can't go on this way." Ryan has also inspired envy among his own animal family. "He's talked to dogs who think they'd be great writers," Keasler says deadpan, "if only they could get it on paper."
