Dog Lit 101 - "The Dog Who Wouldn't Be"
Farley Mowat, one of Canada's most celebrated authentic authors who wrote prolifically about life and times on the Canadian prairies gave his audience a closeup look at the relationship between a boy and his dog with the "The Dog Who Wouldn't Be". Published in 1957, this narrative cycled the Canadian public school literature circles for many years after that and in it gave a glimpse of the natural and pure love between child and animal. If you can dig this book out of your library or pick it up at your local bookstore, it is worth a read and remind yourself of how innocent childhood memories were once made.
