Coffee with a canine: Eileen McVety & Shamrock

The current featured duo at Coffee with a Canine: Eileen McVety & Shamrock.

Eileen McVety's first book, Welcome to the Company (or what it's really like working here) was published by Inkwater Press in March 2009. A professional writer with more than 20 years of communications writing experience, McVety is the founder of Spot-on Writing, inc. She has developed award-winning branding campaigns and communications materials for clients in both the pharmaceutical and business-to-business sectors.

McVety holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago and is a published essayist and short-story writer whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Tiny Lights, Career Woman, Philosophical Mother, and The Minetta Review.

Shamrock is her 2-1/2-year-old male golden retriever.

His proudest moment, according to McVety:
I’d say that his proudest moment was the first time he barked. He was about 6 months old at the time and was initially startled by the rich guttural sound that his throat produced. That feeling was quickly replaced by a proud glow of accomplishment, like, “Hey, I just became a dog today.”
