gramma (hurley-waldrip) | 4 comments jack london/call of the wild, a c doyle/hound of the baskervilles. google "dogs in fiction" and check out the barnes & noble site. there was a kid series "big red" and others that i liked. and wasn't "lassie" a book? there was the mad dog in "to kill a mockingbird" that atticus shot. (still one of the best of the best books.) hello friends!

gramma (hurley-waldrip) | 4 comments oh yeah...there's a dog character in dana stabenow's series starring heroine kate shugat and her alaskan malamute sidekick mutt, who's also a tough girl. this author is currently my favorite read.

Lori | 4 comments I added a few new ones to the bookshelf!


message 9: by Nicole (new)

Nicole (cheneynuts) I just added one to the bookshelf here; Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merril Markoe. I really enjoyed it. Fiction about a woman who one day hears all dogs talking to her. Funny and cute. I definitely recommend.

Edith (opheliaflowers) | 5 comments I added 2 books. You might want to check them out if you can read French.

Bresdin | 2 comments I Loved Walking in Circles before lying down. It was very cute, however the ending was dull. I am reading "The Art of Racing in the Rain" and it is told in the POV of a yellow lab mix as he tells his life story. It is really well written and incredibly funny. The dog is very smart and i would REALLY recommend this book to dog lovers.

Sanfordgrant | 7 comments An classic book, the first rescue dog. Beautiful Joe is an amazing book!

Karen (MiniMinx) | 6 comments The Dog Who Danced is a lovely read. The Art Of Racing in the Rain is highly recomended!


message 14: by Jadyn (new)

Jadyn (FLDSMDFR) I wonderful and emotional book is A Dogs Purpose. It will make you laugh, cry, get angry, and so many other emotions I can't even explain! It will make you feel differently of your dog after you read it. There is a second one that is called A Dogs Journey and it's just as good. I highly recommend it.

Michael (micky74007) for all animal lovers, anything by Joh Katz is worth reading. His Bedlam farm must be an interesting place to visit

Mildred A. Drost, DVM (MildredADrostDVM) | 3 comments I have written about the wonderful dogs that were rescues in my book 'Until One Has Loved an Animal', by Mildred A Drost DVM. Stories of my experiences with my malamutes and with rescued dogs and cats. You could try that book.

Connie Newcomb | 3 comments Hi there!
I'd like to suggest my new book, DOG SHOW CONFIDENTIAL (Sneaking in the back door of Westminster) It is a true story about my adventures in the world of dog shows. It is very funny and happy, I hate sad dog books! I would be willing to give away a copy or two so you could let me know what you think of it. Please check out my website, http://dogshowconfidential.com

message 21: by Abbey (new)

Abbey One of the best nonfiction books I've read - Dog Man: An Uncommon Life on a Faraway Mountain by Martha Sherrill. It's the story of a Japanese man who moved far out into the mountains and was instrumental in bringing back the Akita breed from near extinction after World War II. The parts about the dogs are fascinating, but so is the insight into Japanese life, and Japanese wives. I gave it a 5 star review. Hope you enjoy.

Carol | 2 comments Thanks for listing. I'll look for it. Definitely ready for an interesting "dog read" that isn't a "how to" or a tear jerker!

I bought this one in an early 1900 printing. It still has the onion sheets between the illustrated pages. I haven't read it yet though--I wonder if I'm afraid I'll mess it up.

Carol | 2 comments Aha, another blatant attempt at self-promotion. :-)
The book sounds like fun, I will give it a try.


message 32: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Kramer (laurenkramer) | 1 comments You have to read "Flawed Dogs: The Shocking Raid on Westminster." This story has a great cast of characters. And being the proud owner of several "flawed" dogs, I found the book very relatable in its message.

Check out my book. It's about my 13 year relationship with my shelter dog. I take you from puppyhood to end of life with many funny and sad stories in-between.

Cheers,

Odd Otis (LethalWhite) | 2 comments "Odd Otis" is story told with humor and down-home charm. It is about a blind and deaf dog and his highly unusual, but true, story.


message 35: by Cynthia (new)

Cynthia Port | 4 comments If we're self-promoting, I can recommend an adorable and laugh out loud tail: When eating dog kibble gives a young girl the ability to talk to dogs, she risks all to help her Great Dane fulfill his lifelong wish of becoming a lap dog. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...


message 36: by Odd (new)

Odd Otis (LethalWhite) | 2 comments "Odd Otis" is available on Amazon.com Books in both kindle and paperback versions. It is a true and heartwarming story told with down home charm and humor.
