M. Laiuppa "MLIS, NBCT, Patriotic American"
The list author says: "My latest favorites as much as this list will hold."

The Art of Racing in the Rain: A Novel

Amazing Gracie: A Dog's Tale
Amazing Gracie: A Dog's Tale
"If you've ever bought any Three Dog Bakery products for your dog, you might want to know something about the inspiration to create this business. Meet Gracie and her adopted siblings, the three dogs and how Gracie's delicate stomach created a multi-million dollar business."
Sheep
Sheep
"Valerie Hobbs just has a special way of getting inside a dog's head. Here is the story of a sheep dog from puppyhood to finally becoming Jack."
Listen!
Listen!
"A great book to pair with Sheep or Ann M. Martin's A Dog's Life. This is about a girl looking for a dog, rather than a dog looking for a home. Both are going through a process of healing and need each other, without even realizing it."
A Dog's Life: Autobiography of a Stray
A Dog's Life: Autobiography of a Stray
"A great book to pair with Listen! by Tolan or Sheep by Valerie Hobbs. Yet another story of a stray dog looking for a forever home, but you'll love every page."
Everything for a Dog
Everything for a Dog
"Companion to Ann. Martin's A Dog's Life, we learn what happened to Squirrel's brother, Bone. More upbeat."
Ella in Europe: An American Dog's International Adventures
Ella in Europe: An American Dog's International Adventures
"Meet the amazing Ella. Her Dad took her to Europe, then wrote a book about it. Ella took it all in stride but her Dad knew just how special Ella was and how unique her travels were. Delightful reading."
Stanley's Party
Stanley's Party
"This is simply one of the many titles Linda Bailey has written about Stanley. Buy them all. Enjoy them all. All are equally humorous and delightful. My latest is Stanley's Sister."
Martha Speaks Book and CD
Martha Speaks Book and CD
"The entire series of Martha books are great for kids. Martha speaks but only when she's eaten alphabet soup. The letters go to her brain and allow her to speak. This book and those that follow are one hilarious adventure after another."
Walter the Farting Dog
Walter the Farting Dog
"Like Stanley and Martha, Walter the Farting Dog is a series worth owning. All are hilarious. Walter the Farting Dog has the distinction of being a challenged book in the state of Wisconsin for containing the word fart 22 times. A fun book to own for the ALAs yearly Banned Books Week. If you can, get the Walter plush too. It farts when you squeeze it."
Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing, and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon
Tell Me Where It Hurts: A Day of Humor, Healing, and Hope in My Life as an Animal Surgeon
"A day in the life of a vet. If you liked the All creatures great and small series, you'll appreciate reading of the experiences of Nick Trout and his veterinary practice. He has another book out too."
Gaspard and Lisa Friends Forever (Gaspard and Lisa Books)
Gaspard and Lisa Friends Forever (Gaspard and Lisa Books)
"Gaspard and Lisa go to school and talk just like all of the other children and no one seems to notice they are dogs. Not all of the books have been translated into English so you can order through amazon canada. There is a reason they are called the Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa. There is a catastrophe in every book."
Hachiko: The True Story of a Loyal Dog
Hachiko: The True Story of a Loyal Dog
"Hachiko's statue still sits in the train station in Japan, a popular meeting place. This is the story of a dog as loyal as Greyfriar's Bobby."
Hachiko Waits
Hachiko Waits
"Some liberties have been taken to flesh out the true story of a loyal dog waiting for a master who will never return. This is the Japanese Greyfriar's Bobby."
Good Dog, Carl
Good Dog, Carl
"The book that started it all. Check out You're a Good Dog Carl if you'd like to have a lot of the stories without having to buy individual books. I like the individual books for the endpapers etc. Carl is fabulous. You'll absolutely believe this dog can babysit. If you look carefully, you'll find a wirehair terrier in the background of many of the Carl books. He is Paddy from Paddy's Payday."
Christmas Is Good: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Holiday
Christmas Is Good: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Holiday
"All of Trixie Koontz' books are great. I particularly like the Christmas one. Dean has done an excellent job of transcribing for Trixie. You'll fall in love with her too."
Santa Paws (#1)
Santa Paws (#1)
"Get the boxed set or individual books. Great chapter books for tweens working their way into middle school books. I recommend the chapter books, not the picture book."
Chip Wants a Dog
Chip Wants a Dog
"Buy all of the William Wegman books. Just buy them. And the DVDs too. Just do it."
The Dangerous Book for Dogs: a Parody
The Dangerous Book for Dogs: a Parody
"If you love parody and you know The Dangerous books for boys, you'll love this."
A Day, a Dog
A Day, a Dog
"This is a picture book without words but hardly a book for babies. You'll reread (or relook) it and reread it and get more out of the pictures every time. A poignant story that will bring a tear and a smile."
Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School (LaRue Books)
Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School (LaRue Books)
"There are three Ike LaRue books. Get them all. All are hilarous. All are equally good. You won't be able to read just one."
The Diary of Jinky: Dog of a Hollywood Wife
The Diary of Jinky: Dog of a Hollywood Wife
"This is simply hilarious. He has a blog too."
Hollywood Dogs
Hollywood Dogs
"If you're at all curious about the real lives of animal actors, this is the book for you. I'd also recommend. I, Toto."
I, Toto: The Autobiography of Terry, the Dog who was Toto
I, Toto: The Autobiography of Terry, the Dog who was Toto
"The autobiography of Terry, the dog that played Toto in the Wizard of Oz, told in her own words. Yes, Terry was so versatile, she also played a male dog."
I'll Always Love You
I'll Always Love You
"There are many books out about the loss of a pet, some better than others. I think this is one of the best. I would also highly recommend A Little Dog Like You by Rosemary Sutcliff, sadly out of print."
Ivan the Terrier
Ivan the Terrier
"Beautiful watercolor illustrations. The text is simply a hoot."
The Mightiest Heart
The Mightiest Heart
"We don't know a lot about Gellert, or some of the exact circumstances but he was a real dog that did a really heroic thing. This book is illustrated beautifully. You can go to Wales and see the statue erected in his honor."
Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten (Miss Bindergarten Books)
Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten (Miss Bindergarten Books)
"Get them all. And be sure to get the doll. Then check out the illustrator's page. Her dog *is* Miss Bindergarten, right down to her beautymark (which is also on the doll.) The books are alphabet books and appropriate for pre-K through primary but I would be wary of letting a child that young play with the Miss Bindergarten doll."
Postcard Dogs
Postcard Dogs
"This is a book of vintage postcards featuring vintage photographs of dogs. Some are poses with people and some studio photographs. Very little text but none is needed. You can see the relationship between dog and owner. There are single men and women posing with their beloved pets. Some family portraits in which the dog is included. Some are candid, some formal."
Shep: Our Most Loyal Dog (True Story)
Shep: Our Most Loyal Dog (True Story)
"Like Greyfriar's Bobby and Hachiko, the U.S. has it's most loyal dog."
Owney, the Mail-Pouch Pooch
Owney, the Mail-Pouch Pooch
"There are several books out on Owney, mascot for the U.S. Postal service. This one was nominated for a California Young Reader Medal."
Calico Dorsey
Calico Dorsey
"Owney may have been a postal service mascot, but Dorsey of Calico, California was an actual mail carrier. When his master broke his leg and was unable to deliver the mail Dorsey delivered the mail to the miners around Calico for two years."
