Weekly Geek - Animals

This week you are asked to share books (fiction or nonfiction) and/or movies which center around an animal or animals.
Which are your favorites?
My favorite book about an animal when I was young was The Pokey Little Puppy. It's been a long time since I read and I can't think about what it is about. As I got a little older my favorite books changed to Charolette's Web and Old Yeller . These were book that I read over and over again.

Which touched your heart the most? Ones that touched my heart where probably the later two mentioned above. But more recently I would say A Mama for Owen. It is based on a true story and it is so sweet.

Which have found their way onto your wish lists or TBR stacks? I have Dewey on my TBR Mt.

Is there a childhood favorite? I would have to say out of all of them my favorite has to be Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. That is the first author that ever got me interesting in reading all of there books.

Have you ever named a pet after an animal from a book or movie? Actually yes but i can't seem to find the book. I was walking out of a library when I was young and I remember seeing a book called something like Chino the Cat. It had a orange and white tabby kitten on the cover. I never read the book because I could never find it again but I remember thinking if I have a orange and white cat I will name him Chino. Low and behold I got my wish and I named the pesky critter Chino. We had kinda a love, hate relationship. I despertly wanted to love the cat and he wanted nothing to do with me. I only had him for a month or so and then my dad gave him to my aunt who had him for many years. He is long gone now and in his later years mellowed out and seemed to like everyone except most men and especially my dad.

You get the idea! Have fun with this; use your imagination. Share your thoughts!

I never read Cahrlotte's Web, but I think it was read to us as a class when I was in primary school.
Happy Weekly Geeks :)

Aren't cats' personalities something different. They'd never just be nice like a dog, if they don't feel like it. Funny your Chno didn't want anything to do with you. I can relate to that, I'm not a cat person at all.

Charlotte's Web is one of my favorite books as well even if it never fails to make the little people (and me) cry our eyes out by book's end. Some pig.
