@BCEnglishDept Color Me #DogsofInstagram — no, Littlefield!

Dogs of Littlefield Suzanne BerneOf 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)

The Master of #Dogs #Books is back!

a dog's purpose w bruce camerona dog's journey book w bruce cameronOne 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!
