Call of the Wild
White Fang is driven near mad, until a young man comes along who offers him kindness and friendship. But friendship is something White Fang doesn't understand...yet. Jack London's adventure masterpiece is not only a vivid account of the Klondike gold rush and North American Indian life, it is an intriguing study of the effects of our environments in forming who we are.
My Dog Tulip
The distinguished British man of letters J.R. Ackerley hardly thought of himself as a dog lover when, well into middle age, he found himself in possession of a German Shepherd, To his surprise she became the love of his life. My Dog Tulip looks back on their sixteen years together and tells in sometimes startling detail of Ackerley's fumbling but determined efforts to care for the animal he considered his ideal friend. This frank and often very funny account of the ways of dog and man is also a bittersweet reckoning with the limits of all relationships, a lament for the ultimate futility of even the deepest love.

Lessons examines what dogs teach us, from love to enlightenment. The final section, Passages, reflects on the themes of true friendship, transformation, and loss.
Pack of Two - the Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs

In addition to mining her own experience with Lucille, Knapp speaks to a wide variety of dog people--from animal behaviorists and psychologists to other owners whose dogs have deeply affected their lives.

There is a tendency to call certain tales "shaggy dog stories" - well, in time-honored traditions the following have been harvested through the ages from some of the shaggiest dogs. In fact, it is probably fair to say that these are 100 percent genuine shaggy dog stories, each absolutely faithful to its source: rumors from neighbors; notes jotted on the backs of sketches; gossip from the dog pound; forgotten biographies; half-remembered facts, and unpublished works. The stories will show you how it is possible that dogs have influenced the art world we know and love today.
