The Greatest Dog Stories Ever Told is an enthralling compilation of some of the most moving and illuminating stories ever penned on the subject of our canine companions. The stories in this book can stand on their own, but once you read one you'll want to read them all! Here, you'll find selections from renowned writers of the genre such as Jack London, James Thurber, and Willie Morris, as well as a few surprise contributions from writers more famous in other fields, such as Ray Bradbury and Thomas Mann. Also included in this collection are stories from Will Rogers, P. G. Wodehouse, Peter Mayle, and Stephen J. Bodio.   


Any dog lover is sure to find The Greatest Dog Stories Ever Told impossible to put down. In the thirty-six stories in this fascinating collection you will meet all kinds of dogs-sled dogs, herding dogs, hunting and birding dogs, family pets and movie stars. There's a story of a dog who was a growing boy's best friend, and even a man who was a dog in another life. These dogs will make you laugh, make you cry, but most of all, they will make you realize just why humans adore their dogs so much.  [>>]
