Coton Connection, Issue #028 - Fun Summer Reading
July 10, 2012
|Welcome Coton Lovers:
Summer Reading List: All about dogs
Hi dog lovers. Do you like to read as much as I do? I don't have as much time as I'd like to just relax and read a good book, but when I do, it's just such a treat. I've had to do a lot of traveling lately (for my "real" job) and what else is there to do when waiting in airports and in small cramped airplane seats than read a good book?
Because I'm so crazy for dogs (and all animals), friends are always recommending books that feature dogs. Recently someone sent me this fun book about the Coton de Tulear called Pup Fiction by Sherry Gottlieb. Who would have ever thought that the Coton would be the main character of a novel? What a perfect book to read on the beach or on an airplane. It was fun to recognize the Coton's wonderfully quirky personality in the book's Coton narrator, Sam Spayed. Great lighthearted fun mystery.
This book got me thinking about all the other great novels I've read about dogs. Some of my favorite books, in fact, were about dogs so I thought I'd share them for any of you who love to read. Warning: Some of these books will tear your heart out so have tissues handy. (Why do I always seem to get to the sad part when I'm on a plane and have to try very hard not to cry in front of the stranger sitting next to me?)
My all time favorites:
All of these books have a common thread: the animals in our lives have so much to teach us about our own humanity and they do so in a non-judgmental unconditionally loving way.
I've read so many books over the years and I'm sure I missed some great reads about dogs. Did I miss one of your favorites?
What are your favorite books featuring dogs? I hope you're taking time this summer to read a good book or do anything that brings you fun and joy! What could be better than snuggling with a good book, a glass of wine, and a cute cuddly Coton?
