“Sylvia” cast member Mary Joseph talks about dogs

Another Sylvia cast member – Mary Joseph, who plays androgynous marriage counselor Leslie – just sent her responses to the quiz (see previous post titled “Two of the Sylvia cast talk about their pets”), as well as a photo of her adorable puppy Misha.  Read on!

Q:           First of all – a very important distinction:  are you a cat person or dog person?

A:    I am definitely a dog person.

Q:    What was the name and type of your first pet?

A:    I have never been without a dog. We always had cute little cocker spaniels when I was growing up.

Q:    If you see dogs in the park or on the street, are you compelled to pet them?

A:    Only if they are cute!

Q:    Do you currently have a pet?

A:    When I became an adult and moved out on my own, I switched to golden

retrievers. My current retriever is a beautiful white haired English Golden.

Here is a picture of her when she was a pup. Her name is Misha. She has the

most gorgeous eyelashes ever.

Q:    Do you think animals can teach humans something?  What?

A:    Patience and unconditional acceptance.
