Since my dog is turning 10 today … what animal-related books have you read? Which do you love? Do you have a favorite literary dog? (Snoopy, anyone?)
I’m not big on animals in general (unless I’m allowed to argue that Man is an animal; which I will, given the chance - but then I'm not big on Man either), so reading about them isn't something I consciously do.
I’m currently reading Bright’s Passage by Josh Ritter and in it there’s a talking horse that’s an angel, but it's hardly animal-related.
Earlier this year I read Animal Farm by George Orwell and Pigtopia by Kitty Fitzgerald, and I suppose those are the only ones I can say were animal-related.
I seriously can’t think of a single animal-related book that I love – I can barely think of one at all. I don’t really like dogs, and was going to say Cujo by Stephen King, but I never read the book, just saw the movie.
Aside: Thanks ever so little for the title of this week's BTT because now I'm sure to spend the rest of the day singing Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine... "happiness hit her like a train on a track"
