Good DogAuthor: Maya Gottfried
Illustrator: Robert Rahway Zakanitch
Published: 2005 Dragonfly Books (on JOMB)
ISBN: 0553113836

Full page, personality-packed portraits, deceptively adorable sketched studies and frank, enthusiastic poems reveal the charm and distinct characters of sixteen beguiling breeds in this irresistible celebration of spunky, demanding, affectionate, rambunctious, cantankerous, lovable dogs.

Poetry Fridays are brought to us by Kelly Herold of Big A, Little A.

I’ll have to let my kids listen to the podcast, and then we’ll see if we can find the book through interlibrary loan. This book just might do the trick as we wait to find a new pup this spring, after the death of our much beloved German shepherd last summer. Thanks!
