Animals Are People Too: Digging into Dog Lit

Like with books and movies about children, I cannot watch a movie or read a book where a dog gets hurt or dies. For those of you who feel the same way, here are some safe dog-based lit books I found that should not make you cry (at least not because a dog dies) and you will be very happy that you read.

It's finally Friday. And I'm in much need of a distraction.

Look at her, she's adorable and she loves books! She's perfect! Alright, so we've established dogs are adorable and great. Let's take this up a notch.
