I was checking out  Pinterest and one of the topics was Dogshamming.  My parents have two dogs and some of the things reminded me of them. Here is the website if you want to see more shameful things that dogs can do.

Then I started to think about our library collection. We have numerous books and DVDs on dog training. So if you are getting a new puppy or thinking of getting a puppy, you may want to come to library and browse our collection on dog breeds and training. The library has a few of the Dog Whisper, Cesar Millan's books & DVDs. They are very popular.  One of the titles that I liked is called Catch your Dog Doing Something Right by Krista Cantrell. Or, if you are looking for inspiration dog stories we have Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.

The Library also has fictional books where the dog is the main character.  Two books that I thought of right away was Dog on it: a Chet and Bernie Mystery by Spencer Quinn. Here is the summary from Amazon. 
Chet, the wise and lovable canine narrator of Dog on It, and Bernie, a down-on-his-luck private investigator, are quick to take a new case involving a frantic mother searching for her teenage daughter. This well-behaved and gifted student may or may not have been kidnapped, but she has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters. With Chet’s highly trained nose leading the way, their hunt for clues takes them into the desert to biker bars and other exotic locales—until the bad guys try to turn the tables and the resourceful duo lands in the paws of peril.
 The other book is The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.  Here is the summary of this book.
  Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television and by listening closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming racecar driver. On the night before his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through, hoping, in his next life, to return as a human.
Both of these books are out at the moment so please put a hold on them. I know that the Art of Racing in the Rain was a book club title and most of the members loved it!

If you want a tearjerker, you can read or watch the movie Marley and Me.

Well I can't wait for the Dog Days of Summer!  Till then please check out all our books and DVDs on Dogs.
