Reading Is For the Dogs: Tammy’s January Picks

Do Old Dogs Dream? by Harold J. Creel (Thornton Press) is a tender and humorous must-have book for any dog lover. This collection of poems, photos and pictures all about the canine geriatric set celebrates all dogs lucky enough to reach old age. The baby boomer generation is aging, right alongside our favorite old dogs. Our aging lives are enriched by their grace and candor. The author is donating ALL profits from the sale of this book to the rescue and care of old dogs. See interviews and more on the author’s Facebook page.

Merle’s Door: Lessons From a Free-Thinking Dog by Ted Kerasote (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). This national bestseller explores the bond between humans and their dogs and is truly a wonderful read.

Both of these books are wonderfully written and will make you laugh and cry. Plus they will make you truly appreciate every day with your own dog and all the lessons we unwittingly learn from our very best canine friends.

Happy reading...
