Growing up, the only books my brother read were about dogs. If you just want to read about Herriot's canine patients, Dog Stories is the book to grab. 7. Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. He loved Jack London, who kills far too many dogs for me to enjoy reading his work. Back in 2000, beloved children's book author Kate DiCamillo burst onto the scene with Because of Winn-Dixie.

In fact, dog books have developed traditions and tropes all their own. Some may follow the arc made familiar by novels like Old Yeller-or they may subvert our expectations and take things in a different direction entirely. From classic children’s novels to irreverent modern memoirs, any dog-loving reader can find something that suits their tastes. The Dog Who Came to Stay. Some people pay breeders top dollar for the perfect dog, but for others, rescued dogs are the perfect pets.

When I compiled the post 10 Stories of Lifesaving Dogs, I found more heroic dogs than I needed that day, plus quite a few other dogs that accomplished wonderful things. Here are the stories of eight more. John W. Pilley read about a dog who learned to recognize 200 German nouns, and decided to see if Chaser could learn words as well. Working with the dog for around five hours a day, Chaser learned to recognize the names of a couple of new objects every day, to a current total of 1,022 nouns!

This book is a must for dog lovers -- a collection of stories about dogs by well known authors. The stories range from poignant to laugh out loud funny (James Thurber, "The Dog Who Bit People"), illustrated with beautiful photos (of dogs). Great gift -- Highly recommended!

At the beginning of November I had to put down our nearly thirteen-year-old German Shepherd. We got a new dog last week -- a four-month-old Doberman Pinscher. Even though it's only been a week, I am confident in pronouncing Rufus a good'un. To commemorate the occasion I went to the dog-book section of our home library and dug out this book. We probably acquired it a quarter century ago -- in what circumstances I don't recall -- and I had never read it.

DOG TALES is a major disappointment. It is inferior to most dog books and quite inferior to Rufus. It contains the following nine stories:

* Your Boy and His Dog, by Robert Benchley
* Macdunald, by John Held, Jr.
* Memoirs of a Yellow Dog, by O. Henry
* Lassie Come Home, by Eric Knight
* Dogs, by Ring Lardner
* Being a Public Character, by Don Marquis
* Toward the Dog Days, by Dorothy Parker
* Louis, by Saki
* The Dog That Bit People, by James Thurber

They all are quite dated (the "newest" was published in 1949), probably because the compiler and publisher were looking for material no longer subject to copyright. Benchley, Lardner, Marquis, Parker, and Thurber are famous as humorists, but their stories are barely amusing (the Benchley and Lardner ones are silly). Only one of the stories -- "Lassie Come Home", by Eric Knight -- is better than mediocre, and it is a little too sentimental. The sub-title -- "Classic Stories about Smart Dogs" -- is a double misrepresentation: not only are the stories far from classics, but the dogs in several of them are not particularly smart (in one, the dog isn't even alive).

Thus the book cannot be recommended for the stories. About the only reason to open its covers is for the twenty-one photographs that accompany the stories. Each features one or more dogs of a different breed, looking handsome, affectionate, or cute, and everyone of them is lovable. Alas, not one of the photographs is of a German Shepherd or Doberman Pinscher.

This is a perfect book for anyone who loves dogs. The photographs are excellent as are the stories. For a person like me who only reads music and software design, this is proof that the book is great.

Instead of the new copy of Dog Tales, a great collection of short stories by famous authors, I received a dirty, old, used library copy of a dog training book. Amazon, excellent as always immediately refunded my purchase price.
