Booking Through Pets

btt button

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?

Any favorite books to recommend?

I have never owned any kind of pet. I love the dog in the Comic series, Asterix. He is very small dog for his master Obelix. He is as quirky as Obelix and comes to his rescue whenever it is needed. Not that Obelix needs rescuing from anything....

Tintin's dog in that series too needs a mention. Another great fictional character. The times he has gor drunk with Captain Haddock's beer! You gotta read the Tintin Albums to know his antics!

You must read The Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. It is about a horse and gotta be read by a animal lover!!

I've always had cats. Pretty much every photo taken of me at home has either a cat's tail, paw or face in it somewhere. Here's my post Backchatting Books BTT

I like animals in mystery novels, where animals are used to help solve crimes. Spencer Quinn, Susan Conant, Virginia Lanier are three writers I can think of with dogs, Great series.
