btt button
Since my dog is turning 10 today … what animal-related books have you read? Which do you love? Do you have a favorite literary dog? (Snoopy, anyone?) 


Most recent animal related book I read was probably One Good Dog by Susan Wilson you can read my review here.  I would have to say my favorites where the ones I read as a child and read over and over which would be Charlotte's Web by E.B. White and Old Yeller by Fred Gipson.  Oh and 101 Dalmatians by Dodie Smith!    My favorite literary dog??? hmmm....snoopy is a good one not sure I can top him.  Odie is cute too.  Those are the only ones coming to mind. :-/

Children's books are full of animals! I didn't even think that far.

I didn't think of children's books, but they were great, though.

Thanks for popping by my blog! I think my favorite animal related book(s) have always been and will always be The Black Stallion series. Those books helped me through public school!

I guess I am just too old to read Charlotte's Web now, but nice list! I didn't think of all the books with animals I read as a kid!

Hannah said...

Odie is awesome!

I completely forgot about Charlotte's Web when I was writing my post. I loved that book when I was a kid. I read it a few times.

I loved Charlotte's Web too, but never read it when I was a child. Oh, and Winnie the Pooh! Or do stuffed animals count?

Yvonne said...

I forgot about 101 Dalmatians. We used to have a dalmatian when I was growing up. I loved her so much. They are so beautiful.

Cindy Swanson said...

Oh, Odie is just awesome!

Seems the best dog or animal books are the ones from our childhoods.

I do hope you'll stop by and say hi!

Charlotte's Web was definitely a good one, I still see the movie on tv every now and then and I get teary.

Kerri said...

One Good Dog sounds like a book I would really enjoy. I will have to add it to my list.
