Cookie’s Book Club

Cookie here!  In my family, we all love a good book…

My people love to read them and I love to chew them!    Even though I can’t read, I’d like to tell you about some great books featuring dogs that my family is currently enjoying reading.  

Be sure to check out this Sunday, 9/16/12 The New York Times’ Sunday Book Review, Children’s Section for some great reviews of just-published middle grade novels for teens & tweens (“Rescue Dogs” selections reviewed by John Grogan) and picture books for children (“Bookshelf: Woof selections reviewed by Pamela Paul) all featuring dogs central to their stories.  Here’s the link to these reviews to copy into your browser:

“Rescue Dogs”

“Bookshelf: Woof”

My Mama Diana is currently reading the Canine Classic “Man Meets Dog” first published in 1954 by Konrad Z. Lorenz – described on the cover as “A loving study of the canine personality, with a digression on the feline, by a world authority of animal behavior.”  This book was a gift to my family upon my arrival by Mama’s longtime and dear friend Catharine, for which we thank her.  At the time of publication Dr. Lorenz was, per the book jacket, the “world authority” on the study of animal behavior.  In the book Dr. Lorenz tells the story of how dogs came to live with men; about living and training his own dogs; and not to be neglected, cats and cat behavior.  It is full of very charming illustrations by both Miss Annie Eisenmenger and the Author.  Lorenz also wrote “King Solomon’s Ring” – another book about dogs and cats. 

Mama is finding “Man Meets Dog” thoroughly charming – and hopes other dog (and cat) lovers like you will rediscover the book too.

Warm & Fuzzies, Cookie
