Persephone and Buster's Summer Reading List



Hey, Mom's gone to a wedding, and we've been left all alone with our books!

We can read what we want!




So we thought we'd share a list of our favorite books--the ones Mom wouldn't want you to know we're reading!




Some of this is really post-modern, arcane literature. If you can't follow the thread, try to be patient.




Persephone, of course, prefers to read stuff that's, well, hard to describe.




Buster's tastes are a little more practical.




Sephie has begun studying the implications of Godel's Theorem on terrier (and human) consciousness. She's fascinated by non-recursive looping in dynamic neural systems. She also likes to chew ice cubes while reading.




Buster's something of a history buff. Churchill claimed he was followed by the "black dog of depression" throughout World War II. Buster thinks it was a Kerry Blue Terrier.






And now--Persphone and Buster's REAL favorites!


1. THE SAILOR DOG -by Margaret Wise Brown

2. MISTER DOG -by Margaret Wise Brown

3. THE OTHER END OF THE LEASH -by Patricia McConnell

4. ON TALKING TERMS WITH DOGS: CALMING SIGNALS -by Turid Rugaas

5. THE CAUTIOUS CANINE -by Patricia McConnell

Hey, guess what Putter gave us?

That last photo is a classic! Like some of your book in fact. I just knew two terriers would have great taste in literature, and as for chomping ice cubes while you read, what can I say!

I enjoy a good read myself. I stretch out over the paper in the morning, absorbing every bit of news I can.

That's good stuff. I love books, too. Uh, I would have loved to join you alone there in your house just reading for a week-end. Sounds great.
