Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend...

You know the rest, right?

Luckily we don't have to choose. There are plenty of books about dogs. Sometimes the bosses read to me bits and pieces of the ones they like best.

The boss man recently read Amazing Gracie and gives it 3 bones of 4. I think it would have been a 4 bone review except for the sad ending, a common problem with true life dog tales. I was lucky enough to visit one of their stores just yesterday. Lyle and Spring and I give it 12 bones! From the moment I walked in and smelled the treats baking right there in the store, I was hooked. I wanted to try everything!

Here's another book for those who like some pictures with their words: Flawed Dogs by Berkeley Breathed (of Bloom County fame). In my favorite part of the book, shelter founder Heidy Strudelberg, former chief judge of the Westminster Dog show, encounters a 3 legged street dog and awards him Best in Show. Her comment? "Not for the cut of their coat, but for the content of their character shall we love them!"

On behalf of all mutts everywhere, Hooray Heidy!
