Julie added a status update: Today marks the shift into the Year of the Dog, and I'm wondering. . . what is/are your favorite books that feature a dog, either in the story, or on the cover?
My two personal favorites are Old Yeller and E.B. White on Dogs, but I'd like some help filling my shelf that is, naturally, entitled Year of the Dog! Suggestions, please!
Happy New Year!
