The Bond between Dogs and Humans
Right now we are celebrating Fond du Lac Reads with the book Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson. Mr. Hingson is a blind man who was in the World Trade Center on 9/11 and survived with the help of his guide dog Roselle. Dogs do not have to be service dogs or therapy dogs to have a big effect on our lives. If you are a dog lover, you know what I mean. Books that highlight the dog/human bond are on display at the Library in conjunction with Fond du Lac Reads. Some of my favorites are: Echo through the Snow by Andrea Thalasinos, For the Love of a Dog by Patricia B. McConnell, One Good Dog by Susan Wilson, Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, and Walking in Circles before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe. A combination of two things that I love—books and dogs!
