Top Ten Tuesday: Woof!

 Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is Bookish Wishes, but I am twisting the topic a bit!

Yesterday was the first birthday of our dog Max, so my theme today is all about dogs! But first, here's the birthday dog himself

So today I bring you nine books with the word dog in the title, a couple of which are and one book with a dog on the cover, including a couple of kids books.

The Snake, The Crocodile and the Dog by Elizabeth Peters

The Lost Dog by Michelle de Kretser

To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson

Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Hatton

A Dog's Purpose by W Bruce Cameron

Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion

Hairy McClary from Donaldson's Dairy by Lynley Dodd

The Labrador Pact by Matt Haig

Snowy Mountains Daughter by Alyssa Callen 

Happy birthday Max!!


  1. Aww, what a cute dog you have!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


  2. Happy Birthday Max! Great list of books. Here's my TTT:https://bonniereadsandwrites.com/2023/06/13/top-ten-tuesday-bookish-wishes/

  3. Happy birthday, Max!

    I loved Harry the Dirty Dog when I was young. And Elizabeth Peters is one of my favorites. You've got a good list here!

  4. Oh! Harry!! My brother and I, then my niece & nephew, then my son & daughter and now my step-grandd, and hopefully in a couple of years my grandson, too, will love Harry!! What good memories you've sparked today! And Happy Birthday to the boy himself! Doggie Biscuits all around!

  5. Some real favorites here! I love Harry the Dirty Dog and I really like the Jackson Brodie series. Weirdly, I am not that big a fan of Atkinson's other books.

    I am sure you can find a historical novel published in 1962 by October if you would like to participate in the next "Club" readathon: https://www.stuckinabook.com/the-next-club-and-a-minor-podcast-announcement/

  6. Aww Happy Birthday Max! The only one of these I've read is Curious Incident and it wasn't a favourite, but that wasn't the dog's fault :)
