Issue 05: Summer 1998

Here for your enjoyment: The Bark 5, a Summer literary issue.
Your enthusiasm has given us the incentive to forge onward. We are only a little over a year old, still damp behind the ears, but we are hoping to attract dog lovers nationwide who want a publication that speaks to them. A feature article on us in the San Francisco Examiner Business page in June has worked wonders—garnering attention from around the country. Ah, the power of the press. . . .We welcome all our new subscribers and readers and want to thank everyone for your interest.

On to “5” and its expanded 28 pages, filled with a wonderful array of articles, stories and interviews guaranteed to grab your attention. It is our mission to explore the many perspectives involved in what it means to be a dog person in today’s society. We look forward to hearing your opinions.

In This Special Literary Issue:
Works authored by Mark Derr, Caroline Knapp, Donald McCaig, and Daniel Pinkwater
Essays, interviews, reviews and more.
