These are some texts that may have informed this blog somewhere along the way. I may not agree with everything listed below, but they’ve all contributed to shaping my opinions and understanding of the dogs in my life.

The list will be organized later. For now, it’s alphabetically arranged by author, topically haphazard, and undoubtedly full of holes. Some omissions are deliberate. Many are simply because I haven’t gotten around to reading that one yet. The list is a constant work in progress.
