A new adventure in reading and writing about dogs…
Thanks, Sheila. Glad you like the blog! — “Lovely blog! As a dog writer and a folklorist, I share many of your interests. I’ll be back!” < Sheila Boneham
Isabel Marant Sale writes about finding LiteraryDogs.com, and says “outstanding design and style.” — Thanks Isabel !
▪ THIS SITE IS ABOUT DOGS IN PRINT, all sorts of dogs, (from Tibetan mastiffs, beagles, spaniels, and hounds, to …you name it, your favorites) and all sorts of writings about dogs (books, articles, essays, other blogs, etc.). But, beware: it’s not a blog about saccharine, cutesy ‘doggies’… It’s a serious blog about serious writings about dogs; hence, its title ‘LiteraryDogs’.
“Your website is fantastic. Thank you for creating a serious website devoted to dogs and literature! —Ceiridwen Terrill, Ph.D., Environmental Journalist & Science Writer”
