Happy Tuesday to you, friends! (And a friendly tail wag from Zuzu) It’s National ‘Love Your Pet’ Day here in the US so I’m detouring a bit from the ‘official’ Top Ten Tuesday theme to talk about our fave books with pets. And, by pets, of course Zuzu and I mean DOGS.
Go love on your pet today if you have one (Zuzu says it’s ok to love on your cats too… today.) and meet some of our fave canines on the page!

We love the smiling hound dog in Pepper Basham’s Mitchell’s Crossroads series! He grows on you 🙂
Meet Sweetness, along with Tippy & Jellybean!
Sweetness – a quirky, slobbering, rescue-hearted, spatula wielding hot mess of a dog – stole the show and our hearts!
Hawk, the rookie K-9 in Seek and Find, is another Dana Mentink dog that captured our hearts!
Clyde is such a faithful companion; we couldn’t help but fall in love with him!
Poor Ginger. She’s a bit of a hot awkward mess but she’s also quite endearing!
Zuzu is totally #teamBarysh but keep a box (or 10) of tissues handy!
Frenchie is completely adorable. Zuzu wants to be her BFF.
Of course we can’t leave out Samson, the search-and-rescue dog hero of Colleen Coble’s Rock Harbor series!
(Zuzu has a bit of a crush)
Speaking of crushes….
Zuzu has a few celebrity crushes – real life dogs whose moms write books with dogs.
Zuzu emails Kate James’ dogs, Harley & Logan, on a regular basis.
And we both love reading Kate’s books!
Zuzu thinks Noah is exotic, living in Bermuda.
I think Noah’s mom writes awesome books!
There’s always something to be said for a man (or dog) in uniform.
While Zuzu drools over Vvolt N629 (ret), Ronie Kendig’s retired military working dog, I drool over Ronie Kendig’s swoony military heroes!
Those are some of Zuzu’s favorite dogs in fiction – and mine too! What are some of your fave fictional canines?
