Dogs: Recent Books

This week the Ann Arbor News reported that the city’s first dog park will open this fall at Swift Run Park in southeast Ann Arbor. This may surprise those dogs and owners running free in Burns Park. Soon dogs can run free in at least one city park without being scofflaws.

Some recent good books on dogs:

First Friend: a History of Dogs and Humans by Katharine M. Rogers

Bestseller Marley and Me is also a good read.
