Dog Songs, by Mary Oliver, is a touching collection of poems meant for the soul who thinks their coffee goes best with dog fur and their pillows best shared with wet noses. As an overly obsessed dog person, I loved this book. It is the ultimate, eloquently written, collection of dog commentary, or as I like to call it, 'Dogemmtary.' Dog lovers across the globe can relate to such a set of poems. Beautiful and true, painful and worth it. There is no beauty or misery quite like watching your dog get old. Recommended by Jenna.
"The popularity of Dog Songs] feels as inevitable and welcome as a wagging tail upon homecoming." --The Boston Globe
