Here comes another cute, kid-friendly dog movie from W. Bruce Cameron, the author of A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey…
With all the “Best of” lists coming out as we wrap up 2016 — I figured why not add a pile of this year’s dog books to the mix? If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or other pet presents, there’s plenty of reading material to entertain the dog person in your life!
Dogs and Their People (BarkPost)
The Secret Language of Dogs (Victoria Stilwell)
The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and Her Dog (Patricia McConnell) – Available Feb 2017
Wesley Banks, author of the newly-released Faith in Every Footstep, has compiled a list of his Top 100 Dog Books using a complex, dog-eared algorithm of ratings, reviews, and sales (call it Moneyball for Mutts) — and It’s Just A Dog is proud to chew up the #30 slot!
Also, Mr. Banks is gifting a bundle of classic dog books this weekend — so check out his giveaway here on his website!

Of course you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I absolutely love the hardcover jacket for The Dogs of Littlefield by Suzanne Berne.
Unfortunately, the story seems to be a rather dark comedy about dogs being poisoned in suburbia — think American Beauty meets My Dog Skip — and we all know what happened to those lead characters…
However, looking on the bright side, if this novel’s writing is as clever as the cover, then I’m sure all readers will be feeling the Berne! (Amazon)
There’s only one thing better than curling up with a good book — and that’s curling up with your pet AND a book!

One of the undisputed champions of dog books is W. Bruce Cameron, author of the best-selling A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey –– and it looks like the big dog is back with The Dog Master. Although this historical novel strays from the trail of Cameron’s past canine tales as it details the extraordinary bond between a man and a wolf (the first dog), I’m sure his new story will stand the test of time…even if dogs supposedly can’t tell time!
