Ahh, August: we’re officially in the middle of the “dog days of summer,” which has little to do with actual dogs, and more to do with the Dog Star – Sirius, under whose influence August begins.
“Book Lovers Day” is celebrated on August 9, just before the “dog days” end on August 11. And this year, we also have a favorite dog-themed book-turned-movie being released on Book Lovers Day: The Art of Racing in the Rain, by Garth Stein (Harper Collins, 2008).
In honor of both the “dog days of summer” and “Book Lovers Day,” we’re celebrating books about dogs, including:

This small sample of books about dogs, in honor of Dog Days and Book Lovers Day, illustrates just how important a role dogs (and books!) play in our lives.
Indeed, many Windsong homeowners are thrilled to find that their luxury ranch homes are the perfect place to share with their dogs (and cats, birds, fish, and other house pets). Private courtyards enable your dog to spend some “alone time,” when necessary, and wide sidewalks throughout each Windsong community offer the perfect place to take your pooch for a stroll.
Neighbors often find conversations – and friendships – begin with, “may I pet your dog?” Breaking the ice is never easier than when there’s a four-legged tail-wagger involved on a walk in a Windsong community.
