What better time to read about man’s best friend than during the dog days of summer?! Settle in and enjoy some engaging nonfiction (and maybe your significant canine other can cuddle up too)! Go “on the road” with Dogtripping: 25 Rescues, 11 Volunteers, and 3 RV’s on Our Canine Cross-Country Adventure. Want something larger than life? Try Dave Nasser’s Giant George: Life With the World’s Biggest Dog.
To learn more about how these animals change our lives, check out A Dog Named Boo: How One Dog and One Woman Rescued Each Other – and The Lives They Transformed Along the Way by Lisa J. Edwards. Dogs are often the heroes of the story, as in Julie Barton’s Dog Medicine: How My Dog Saved Me from Myself and Stefany Shaheen’s Elle and Coach: Diabetes, the Fight for My Daughter’s Life, and the Dog who Changed Everything.
Life with a dog is humorously depicted in You Had Me At Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secret of Happiness by Julie Klam and Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog by John Grogan.
