Book barks

In the book I finished a few days ago (The Little Stranger), and in the book I’m reading now (The Wilderness), there are episodes about dogs. Both very good, and I realized how much I like these insertions about man’s best friend in my novels. They’re comforting.

Many times they’re a bit melancholy, since they deal with the dog’s death, or the dog’s aging. There’s something very humanizing abut a fictional character that has  or deals with a dog.
