SNOG A Puppy’s Guide to Love

photo-160We made it!!!

May’s comment: What a lovely book about “puppy love.”  Rachel Hale’s heart melting portraiture of puppies – “from golden retrievers to German shepherds, bulldogs to Boston terriers” and even one of a Cockerpoo!  We love puppies but as Rachel says in her introduction – the love puppies give is consistent and unconditional. Yes, we can learn a few lessons form them.

Tails Are Not for Pulling by Elizabeth Verdick

May’s comment: a book for dog-crazed people. Many of the incidents told will sound familiar. Learnt a few things. 

The Art of Racing in the Rain

Mummy read a book written by a dog, Enzo and his Master.  It’s called The Art of Racing in the Rain.

I saw her starting to cry even from the beginning. By the end of the book, her tears were flowing.  When she put it down, she held me and gave me a hug.  Then she looked at me with a quizzical look and asked me – who I was?

Guess the book must have been good. It spoke on our behalf and made humans think we may have a soul.

May’s comment: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Gareth Stein – a lovely book. Touching, captivating and a tear jerker. I started looking at dogs differently after reading this. A must for all dog-lovers and it may even convert those who are not yet dog lovers.
