Books about Dogs

September 03, 2011

In some parts, there's still a bit of summer left. What better than to grab an iced coffee, head to the beach, and read a good book about man's best friend? Let's face it, most of these books about our favorite four-legged friends end the same. We quickly fall in love with the protagonist, whether it be Marley, Merle, or Enzo. We share in their many adventures, and then we suffer with their owners as we read about their deaths. Nevertheless, we gravitate to these books and in each one, find a different lesson: how to be mischievous, how to be independent and dependent at the same time, and how to love unconditionally.

So, if you're looking for another lesson taught by our beloved, furry friends, I'd highly recommend Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote, Marley and Me by John Grogan, and the Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Don't forget to bring Kleenex with you when you get to the end, and if you've recently lost a dog, you might want to wait to read these once you have a new puppy.

A Love Letter To A Dog On Valentine's Day

February 14, 2017

Dear Dog,

It has come to my attention, in this month of love, that before the boyfriends, girlfriends, children, jobs and moves, there was one thing that has loved me through it all: you!

You patiently waited all day for the squeak of the door to open on the first day of my new job. You heavily nosed my significant other as to say "welcome" on our first date. You've laid with me as I cried, licked...
