Eko’s Book Club: The Big New Yorker Book Of Dogs



After a romp at the dog park or a run on the beach, you can usually find Eko sprawled out on the couch.  I often join him with whatever book I’m reading, and recently I picked up the perfect book for anyone who loves dogs: The Big New Yorker Book Of Dogs.

Mixed in with the essays are some classic dog comics

Not surprisingly, a lot of great writing has been done about man’s best friend.  The Big Book Of Dogs includes work from contemporary writers like Malcolm Gladwell as well as 20th century big shots like Roald Dahl, John Updike and Arthur Miller.

But it is lights out as soon as I start reading!  I think I inadvertently discovered a new way to get Eko to bed

The Big Book Of Dogs is packed with essays, stories, poems and photos that every dog-lover will, well, love! I highly recommend you check it out.

It’s going to take me a while to get through the Big Book, but I am always looking for reading suggestions.  Anyone have a favorite book about dogs or pets that I should pick up?
