Meet CeeCee Honeycutt, the newest member of the Sinn family! She found her way into my life one fateful morning when I scooped her up from the side of the road. I’ll never forget how scared and lost she looked as she wandered in front of cars near a busy street. Not knowing what to expect, I swung my car door open and called out to her. Without hesitation, she jumped into the Taurus and stared up at me with an unmistakable look of relief. Since she had no collar or registered microchip, I had to do some serious sleuthing to reunite this mystery mutt with her owner. Little did I know, she had already found her way home.
So what does this have to do with books, you ask? Well if you’re a Beth Hoffman fan, her name should ring a bell. According to my neighbors, her name is CeeCee, which is rather fitting considering that’s the name of one of my most favorite literary characters. In fact, they both started their homeward-bound journeys from very rocky pasts.
Of course there’s no way of knowing what this dog has been through, but I do know that she desperately needed a safe place to land. I may not have a fancy Cadillac or a stately Southern mansion like Aunt Tootie, but I’d like to think that CeeCee is just as thrilled to be living in her new home as her literary counterpart.
If you’re an animal lover and enjoy good books about strong Southern women, check out Beth Hoffman’s blog. This wonderful author is dedicating her book tour to raising money for animal shelters! If you haven’t ready any of her books, you’re in for a real treat. Read my reviews here and here.

Bless you and your big heart for rescuing CeeCee! Love her pink outfit. I wish there were more people in the world like you! I know that CeeCee Honeycutt and all the gals of Savannah are incredibly honored, as am I. Thank you, Jessica. Please give your CeeCee a squeeze from me! xo
Thanks, Beth! Oh how CeeCee and I would love to spend a day with Aunt Tootie, Olettta and all their friends in Savannah! It sure is wonderful that your book tour benefits shelter animals. I’m holding out hope that I’ll see you signing books at Austin Pets Alive one of these days. 🙂
I’m holding out hope, too!
Rescue puppies are the best. We have 3 fur babies that came in to our lives because they needed a home. I talk all about them on my blog, http://livinglavidalippy.blogspot.com/. I just love them like children. CeeCee was so lucky to be found by you. She is adorable. It just makes my day to hear about rescued pets!
Thank you so much! She has definitely been a big sunny spot in my life. I don’t know how I got by without a dog for so long. I’ll go take a look at your furbabies on your blog!
She is absolutely beautiful, Jessica, and it sounds like you were just meant to find each other! How does Gizzy feel about his new family member?
What a very sweet story! How does she get along with your kitty?
We have 2 cats and 1 dog and they are finally getting used to each other! My female cat (Cindy-Lou-Whoo) can do whatever she likes and the pup, (Broo – male) and the other cat, (Boots -also male), let her just go along her business. Walking on them. Stealing their treats. Eating out of their dishes. It’s hilarious! She’s gorgeous but she definitely uses her good looks for her own benefit lol
I’m very glad you 2 found each other though!!!
Hi Ashley! Miraculously, she is very sweet to Gizzy. And Gizzy is completely indifferent to having a little sister on board. So far it’s been a perfect fit! Sounds like you’ve got a full house of fur munchkins! Glad they’re all finding a way to coexist. I think that on some level, dogs just know that the cats rule the roost!
