Top 100 Books for #Dogs and their People!
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!
The Master of #Dogs #Books is back!
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!
