Rich in history and drama, Dog Tales entertains, enlightens, and inspires dog owners and dog lovers. These are enduring stories that have passed the test of time and have attracted generations of readers. Emerging from the prose in these pages are gallant dogs, facing incredible dangers and tasks. Loyal and affectionate dogs, unforgettable in the memories of the owners who shared their lives. These stories have been carefully selected for the imaginative reader who loves dogs—the people who agree with Will Rogers that, “If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
