It is the first annual meeting of the WOOF Society. Dogs of all different backgrounds and breeds have gathered together to listen to the stories of twelve dogs from around the world and throughout history. Abu is the ruler of ancient Egypt, but Miu, the Royal Cat, continues to challenge him, except at night. Tidbit, the runt of his litter, becomes a star singer at the Grand Ole Opry. Jip leads his blinded master back home from the Civil War. Mimi, a dog living in Paris, shares her tips on bathroom protocol and dinnertime etiquette. And eight more!
Dog Diaries is a winning companion to Cat Diaries, also by Betsy Byars and her daughters Betsy Duffy and Laurie Myers. Humorous and at times touching, this collection of ultra-short stories is perfect for dog-loving reluctant readers.
