With spring stirring in the air we decided to feature this season’s literary stirrings in a “Bark Must Reads” feature. We have a chapter from Rex and the City, the long-awaited book from our columnist, Lee Harrington. Ken Foster’s touching and insightful memoir, The Dogs That Found Me, tells the story a Pit pup who did indeed find him. Alison Pace’s novel, Pug Hill, finds the heroine cavorting with Pugs in Central Park. The photo/essay book Just Gus is an inspirational story-within-a-story that begins with the adoption of a stray dog.
Bark’s July issue is a celebration of the “Summer of Love—Year of the Dog” style. There are treats galore awaiting you. From dogs who get a kick out of soccer, or love nothing better than to take really long dives from docks, to tips on getting your dog fit and ready for summer activities. Our extended Dogpatch brings you lists and lists of seasonal picks and tips—look for the many ways you can make this summer memorable (and safe) for you and your pups. Find out what behaviorist Patricia McConnell has to say about the importance of your dog’s name.
Out of the doghouse and into our house! Bark’s September issue celebrates Dog @ Home. Catching the DIY craze, we show you how to stitch up jeans to make a bed to pant over—plus other nifty projects to inspire the do-it-yourselfer. We share tips on turning your home “Green” and eco-friendly—you and your dogs deserve it! We take on the obstacle-course challenges faced by small dogs living in our big world.
