Dog Books

There is nothing better (in my mind anyway) that reading a great book that has a dog as a character. There are several I have read over the years, but here are a few that really stand out.

1. Watchers by Dean Koontz. GREAT book, features a golden retriever. One of my all time favorites.
2. Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote. I love this book!
3. Marley and Me by John Grogan
4. Bones would Rain from the Sky by Suzanne Clothier
5. Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul
6. Old Yeller - Thanks Cabana!
7. Where the Red Fern Grows- my favorite childhood book!
8. My Dog Skip

These are all the ones that come to mind at the moment. Check them out, they are great books!

Those types of books are my favs too - thanks for the suggestions. I haven't read #2 and I just finished the last book I got.

I love the Chicken Soup Dog Lovers book. I have not heard of the others! Thanks for sharing!! Deborah

I liked Merle's Door, too. And you can't leave Old Yeller off the list!! I used to read it over and over as a kid--and cry every time.

I will add Olde Yeller to the list! And I forgot where the Red Fern Grows....what a tear jerker!

I was going to suggest "Where the Red Fern Grows", but I see you've added it to the list now. That is one of my all-time favorite books, even though I weep every time I read it.

Somebody else blogged about Dean Koontz's dog-related books today too. I haven't read any of his yet, but they're on my wish list now. :-)
