Christmas Dogs: A Literary Companion

Overview

A heartwarming anthology and tribute to the canine companions in our lives.

Dogs may be man’s best friend, and they definitely are considered part of the family. As any dog owner will attest, a home just doesn’t feel the same without a dog. Whether protecting that home, or being a willing playmate, or just raising our sagging spirits, dogs are trusted confidants and true companions.

Overview

A heartwarming anthology and tribute to the canine companions in our lives.

Dogs may be man’s best friend, and they definitely are considered part of the family. As any dog owner will attest, a home just doesn’t feel the same without a dog. Whether protecting that home, or being a willing playmate, or just raising our sagging spirits, dogs are trusted confidants and true companions. The unique bond between dogs and their owners at Christmastime is captured in this charming, heartwarming anthology of original and previously published pieces. Included are works from such authors as Willie Morris, Jon Katz, James Herriot, Shel Silverstein, and Susan Orlean, as well as new pieces from PBS’s Uncle Matty, Pat O’Haire, the editor in chief of Modern Dog magazine, and pet advocates from the Humane Society, the ASPCA, and others.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Just in time for the holidays, here are two collections of poems, stories, and essays by the famous (e.g., Cleveland Amory, Rita Mae Brown, and Shel Silverstein) and the not-so-famous that demonstrate the allure of cats and dogs. Some of the material has been previously published, but several pieces were created specifically for these anthologies. Readers are treated to a short story by editor Murphy, creator of feline sleuth Joe Grey, about a librarian and her vagrant brother reuniting a family of cat lovers, and the Three Dog Bakery's yummy recipe for "Holidog" muffins, which are sure to delight any canine's taste buds. The recurring theme of the bond between human and pet will make you wonder who really owns whom. Both of these collections are uplifting and recommended for both library collections and as personal gifts for your favorite cat or dog lover.-Edell M.

    Depressing Book

    As a dog lover and owner I was very excited to begin reading this book - 'canine advocates sharing their most unforgettable Yuletide memories with their most faithful companion - their dog.' Probably about 50% of the stories in this book end with their dogs dying - very sad. Don't expect to get into the Christmas spirit when reading this book. The cover of this book is very deceiving.
