A long time regular came in and we got to talking about dogs. I don't know if you know this about me, but until recently I was the crazy lady with 4 dogs. We had to say goodbye to our beloved bookstore dog, Montana, in Janurary. She was a very happy, sweet and goofy dog.. who we still miss a ton. 6 months later, we're about to say goodbye to our dog Toby. As many of you know, Tony was Padfoot at Harry Potter release parties. Kids used to ask to take their pictures with Toby, because he looked just like Padfoot. Toby would eat up the attention. Now, don't feel sorry for Toby. He's almost 14 and has had a very good life. He's a sweet boy. He's a good boy.
My son Eli loved the book Old Yeller. He didn't care about the ending. All he saw was a good dog and the boy who loved him. Me? I can't read books about animals. They always make me cry. Even happy ones like The Incredible Journey. For every happy animal book, I swear there are 4 sad ones. The Yearling, The Day No Pigs Would Die, Where the Red Fern Grows, A Dog's Purpose. What are your favorite animal books? Did the book make you cry? Why Is it your favorite? I swear, The Yearling scarred me as child. Has an animal book ever scarred you? What animal book do you remember most from your childhood?
