Great Dog Books!

Not all dog owners have horses, but I know of not one horse owner that doesn't have a dog; therefore, I'd like to include these dog books on this site.

A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron is my new favorite book! I laughed, cried and was amazed at the author's insight to a dog's attitude about life.

The protagonist is a dog who lives multiple lives, and remembers them all as he is reincarnated. The previous lives aid him in the next life as he tries to understand his purpose. He is funny (cats have no purpose), a rescuer (more than once), loyal (except when he separates from his feral mom), fun loving (diving in the pond with his boy) and has a satisfying ending as he fulfills his purpose.

This is a must read for all dog lovers!


A Lucky Dog by Dirk Wales is a delightful true story about Owney, the official U.S. Rail Mail mascot. From from 1888 - 1896, this lovable mutt visited not only American cities as he traveled by train across the country, but also Canada and overseas! The Albany, NY Post Office was his home.

Although a well-illustrated (by Diane Kenna) picture book, the story will appeal to all dog lovers.

I found this book at the railroad museum in Glenwood Springs, Colorado while on my 2011 Book Tour. See photos from that visit at
