Dogs are beloved family pets around the country. Roughly 46 percent of U.S. households have at least one dog and roughly 40 percent of those dog owners have more than one dog, according to the Humane Society.
If you love your family pet, you may enjoy reading about other dogs. Here are a few dog books to add your reading list.
The Humorous Tale of a Mischievous Dog
If you have ever owned a dog, you can relate to the tale in “Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog.”
The true tale discusses the mischievous antics of a dog that the owner brought home as a puppy, the years of trouble and the love that the dog brought out in the whole family.
The story describes the lessons that the dog taught a family. The story described in the biographical tale is appealing for any dog lover. The humorous situations and the unexpected antics of a beloved family pet provide lessons that every family or individual can use and learn.
Heartwarming Tale that Brings Communities Together
For a heartwarming story that will appeal to every dog lover, “Huck: The Remarkable True Story of How One Lost Puppy Taught a Family – and a Whole Town – About Hope and Happy Endings” is a good choice.
The story describes a child’s longing for a pet dog and the circumstances that allow him to get his wish with a toy poodle. Although the story seems simple, it shows the complexity and hope of a community that comes together to find a missing pet.
Although “Huck” is a story about resilience and love, it is also the type of tale that touches the heart and causes the reader to get caught up in the worries, concerns and hopes of every individual described in the tale.
An Inspiring Tale of Perseverance and Loyalty
Dog lovers are often inspired by their pets, but none was as inspired as the owners of a dog named Sophie.
In “Sophie: The Incredible True Story of the Castaway Dog,” the dog inspires more than just the family who lost her during a trip. It inspires pet owners and dog lovers around the world.
In the story of Sophie, the canine was cast overboard and swam through the Great Barrier Reef to a wildlife reserve. She spent months on the island and waited for her owners to come rescue her. The story of Sophie is a biographical book that the author put together via official reports and interviews, states Oprah.com.
