Melody's dog, Bo.

Historical Character Pets are animals that are part of the Historical Characters' Historical Collections. Originally, pets and animals were associated only with the Birthday Collections and birthday books; on the first two cover styles, the pet or animal was featured on the cover in some place. Now, this category includes any pets that are part of a Historical's collection.

Originally, each character had a single pet or animal that was mentioned at some point in their birthday stories with the notable exception of Samantha Parkington, who was instead given a stuffed bear (though Jip was part of her birthday story). Later, other characters were given additional pets that were part of their stories in a more prominent manner than the birthday story animal. Several of the pets did not belong solely to the character they are associated with.
