Snerched from Joe Mallozzi's blog. Joe Flanigan's dog tries to escape his clutches. Ah, silly dog!! ;)

The following is snerched from Joe Mallozzi’s blog entry of August 8th, and is relevant to those fanfic writers amongst us who keep going “we want Sheppard backstory”!
But first, some little pics of bigger ones you can find at http://josephmallozzi.blogspot.com/2007/0
There are more shots of Kavan with the puppy at JM's blog.
Perhaps Paul McGillion is thrilled with the press release that came out today about Beckett's return? ;)
Still looking for a title for the Sheppard on Earth story we finished breaking yesterday. To those of you who are using the bio on the Sci Fi website as a guide, stand advised - the reference to his father being a Cold War Colonel is not canon. I’m not even sure where it came from. So, expect some insight into Shep’s past relationships late in season four.

Answer: Delving into Sheppard’s backstory was one of the things on our To-Do list at the beginning of the season, and Joe’s idea gives us the perfect scenario in which to do it.
Grey writes: “On the SciFi website, for Sheppard's character it describes him as "the son of a respected Cold War colonel". In the upcoming Sheppard-on-Earth storyline, might we learn anything about said father (ie: dead, alive, disowned) or is that something initially thought of that doesn't fit the character anymore?”
Answer: That didn’t come from us.
While this means we have even less backstory now on Sheppard, it also lifts all constraints for fanfic writers to give him any family/parentage they want (as if we haven't already).
