Dogs and Pets

btt button

I checked in at the Booking Through Thursday blog, which is the host for a weekly book meme or blogging prompt. Here is this week’s prompt:

My dog just had his birthday (12 years old, thanks), so … how do you feel about books about dogs or pets? Fluffy stories of fluffy family members? Solid books on training them or taking care of them? Touching reminiscences of trouble and the way a person’s dog (or pet) has helped get them through?

I love books on dogs but I get sad and become a wet rag sometimes. It’s like seeing all the dogs and cats waiting to be adopted at the park or at the pet stores. Marley and Me by John Grogan, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron—these are all my favorite dog books. There is Show Dog, the chronicle of how an Australian Shepherd became the Westminster show winner. The famous library cat Dewey from Iowa also made a deep impression in me. I’ve got the John Steinbeck’s classic Travel With Charley and Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz waiting this summer.
