dogs in literature

Throughout the centuries dogs have played their part in literature leaving their paw prints in novels, short stories, poems, plays, fables...Sometimes they are the heroes, sometimes they play a supporting role and sometimes merely an extra looking in from the wings. No matter what, we love to read about them and no doubt, they love us to read how they fare on the stage of world literature. The following list is by no means complete. We hope to add to it in the future.
