BookRiot has put together a great list of books about our favorite canines.
Here's a fiction sample from the list, to be fair,
I loved this book, and yes, it is science fiction-y.
In the post-apocalyptic dystopia of The Dog Stars, 99.7% of the world’s population has been wiped out by a flu pandemic. Hig’s friends and family are dead and he lives in the hangar of an abandoned airport with his dog, Jasper, and a “gun-toting misanthrope” named Bangley. When an unexpected transmission lights up his radio, Hig sets out with Jasper to follow a trail he hopes will lead to a better world.
