I ended up with so many silly photos that just didn’t look right on PetCareBev.com that in 2010 I purchased a new domain and set up a photo blog. My Flat Pet was born. I worked hard at it for a couple of years, but it never really took off. Let’s be real here: these are goofy photos that will appeal to a very small niche audience and it doesn’t take very long to look at them / chuckle / and move on so the bounce rate on the site was brutal.
As I evolve into Bev The Boomer, it made sense to me to bring all of My Flat Pet to the Boomer blog.
Meet Flat Tyler.
He is the “doggleganger ” of Fluffy Tyler. In his words:
“Fluffy Tyler doesn’t like me and it annoys him when I turn up–so I turn up whenever I can. I take great joy out of being annoying.”
“I like to travel, go out to eat, make friends, and have fun. I live with a wack job who is manic about taking photos of me. It’s a burden, but I do the best I can to appear cool and unfluffered when the photo sessions start.”
“If you like any of my photos, if they give you a giggle, or start you smiling, please consider making a donation to my favorite Bichon rescue group, Small Paws. I would not exist without Small Paws Rescue. The more money I can generate for Small Paws, the more orphaned Bichons will find furever homes.”

4/2/2014: Referenced below in the comments is a video (done by our pal, Dr. V of Pawcurious) where Flat Tyler allows himself to be bowled down by a bowling ball in order to get $$ for shelter pets. He is the bravest of flat pets! Video here.
