Five Dog Books

by Bryan Thomas Schmidt

Dogs and humans: they’ve been a beloved combination for centuries, popular in reality as well as fiction. Man’s best friend, they’re called. They quickly become beloved members of the family.

For dog lovers then, it’s natural to spend a lot of time talking and thinking about dogs. In fact, we frequently enjoy seeing them with others, in movies, in cartoons, and even in stories.

Famous dog books include Old Yeller, Where The Red Fern Grows, Marley and Me, White Fang, Cujo and Lassie Come Home. Ever heard of them? Of course, everybody knows Charlie Brown’s best friend Snoopy, right?

Fidose of Reality, a canine-centric online magazine, has a list of Five Dog Books You Should Be Reading. Ranging from fiction to nonfiction, from books written in human point of view to books told from the canine point of view, humor to serious, these five books might be just what the dog lover in you is looking for to fill reading time over the rest of the Summer and well into Fall.

Here’s Fidose of Reality’s List: http://fidoseofreality.com/five-dog-books-you-should-be-reading/

What books would be on your list of favorite dog books and why? After you’ve read the list, we’d love to have you make one of your own for us in comments.
