(3) Harry, Ron and Hermione in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I know I posted about them last week with the Coming of Age theme, but they are just so great.

My poodle, Peanut, wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t add friendships with dogs too.

I can spout out a bunch of books with dogs in them, because I love dogs. So to go with the theme, here’s books where I can’t think of one character without thinking of their dog too.

Books I Read

(1) Snoopy and Charlie Brown ♥ in Snoopy, Man’s Best Friend by Charles M. Schulz (and other Peanuts stuff by Schultz). Truly a Man’s Best Friend!!!!!!!!!!!

(2) Fang and Hagrid ♥ in Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. Best characters of the Harry Potter series IMO.

(3) Chet and Bernie in A Cat was Involved by Spencer Quinn. A cute duo. And I love that the point of view is through the dog’s.

(4) Darth Daisy and August in Wonder by R. J. Palacio. SPOILER – tear jerker.

(5) Bliss and Elizabeth in Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson. Jane Austen retelling and dogs, my favorite things in one story.

From My To Be Read Pile

(1) Bigsby and Henry in Henry and Ribsy by Beverly Cleary. Love Beverly’s Ramona and Beezus books. Don’t know why I didn’t read these as well when I read the other books by Beverly.

 

(2) Dogs and Betty White. ♥ Her bio book If You Ask Me by Betty White is on my tbr. Betty, a true dog lover.

(3) Enzo and Dennis in The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Has been recommended to me a lot.

(4) Hachiko and Professor Ueno in Hachiko Waits by Lesléa Newman. Might recognize Hachiko’s story from the movie, Hachi.

(5) Henry and Izzy in A Girl’s Best Friend by Liz Young. Just because of the title (and the author too).

(6) Manchee and Todd in The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. Has been recommended to me a lot.

Wow. Did I leave any out? lol
