National Dog Day was last weekend, on August 26th, so we must celebrate with a good old-fashioned barklist! Oops. I mean, booklist.
Like many Rovers and Spots out in the world, I did some digging and retrieved our Books About Dogs booklist — but doggone it, it’s been eight years since we made that list, so I’ve added some more suggestions!

Nancy loves dogs, but is super allergic, so she’ll just have to make do with hugging her fictional puppies instead. 🎵 sad trombone 🎵
