Dog Diaries, Secret Writing of the Woof Society – Another great book by Betsy Byars and other Authors. This book is another must read for any family with a dog and young children. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.

A treat for storytelling-lovers as well as dog lovers (I don't count myself among the latter), Dog Diaries covers a meeting of the WOOF (Words Of Our Friends) Society, dogs devoted to growing an awareness of dogs' storytelling talents. The meeting is the frame for a series of monologues/stories from dogs both historical and contemporary. We hear from Abu, a dog of Ancient Egypt; Tidbit, a dog at the Grand Ol' Opry in the late 50s who's given his name by a nice lady named Dolly; Jip, who accompanies his human to the Civil War and leads him home when he's blinded in battle; Mimi, a contemporary dog living in Paris who shares the finer points of dog toilet etiquette (when it's cold, feel free to go inside, as long as you can hide it--under the bed in a guest room is ideal), and more. Often hilarious, sometimes moving, not every story hit the mark for me but most well exceeded it. I recommend it!
