I DO CONFESS; I SET MY DVR TO KEEP UP with the denizens of Genoa City each week on The Young and The Restless and binge watch over the weekend. I have been a fan for over 30 years. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to feature a few of my favorite actresses to dish all things dogs.

CHARACTER ON Y&R: SHARON MCAVOY
(PREVIOUSLY COLLINS, NEWMAN, AND ABBOTT)

FIDO FRIENDLY » What is the earliest memory you have of your first dog and can you tell us a little about him?

SHARON CASE » We had a dog named Ruffles in our family as early as I can remember. I think I was about four. She was a sweet little girl; a small grey poodle. She was a great playmate; like having a live doll. I dressed her in baby clothes and put her in the baby buggy.

FF » Is your dog a good judge of character?

SC » I think both of my dogs have good intuition. They seem to know a good person and dog lover when they see them. I’ve noticed my dogs will be very affectionate with these people whereas otherwise they might be shy or disinterested.

FF » What is a typical day like on set and who watches your dog while you are at work?

SC » My daily routine at work is pretty simple. I usually start with the hair and makeup department, and then we take a meeting with our director onstage and do a quick rehearsal. After that I’ll usually have time to have breakfast or study my lines for a while before shooting, unless my scenes are the first on the taping schedule.
