Two Wonderful Books with Dogs: One Memoir, One Fiction #BookReview

I loved both of these books, although they were very different. When Harry Met Minnie is a memoir by Marthat Teichner dealing with love of Bull Terriers and how that brought two women together in a heartbreaking yet wonderful friendship. A Dog’s Courage is a story from W. Bruce Cameron and is the second book in A Dog’s Way Home series. It is very timely, dealing with forest fires and the animals that get displaced by them. Fiction, but realistic. Both of these books were provided by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.
