Did you know August 26 is National Dog Day? It's the only day that celebrates all dogs both purebreds and mixed. There are lots of ways to celebrate National Dog Day like taking your dog for a walk at the park or giving your dog an appreciative hug or acknowledging the dogs that work to protect us and save lives. Need a new best friend? Consider adoption from a local animal rescue! Here's some books recently added to the pet collection...

"A heartwarming and inspirational book for the tens of millions of dog owners and dog lovers-and the newest addition to the phenomenal Unlikely Friendship series, a publishing program with three New York Times bestselling books and, with its bestselling calendars, nearly two million copies in print. Unlikely Friendships: Dogs brings together twenty-seven new stories of canine kindness and courage, plus a handful of classic tales involving dogs from Unlikely Friendships, Unlikely Loves, and Unlikely Heroes. Meet Rex, a Belgian Malinois who learned to love and trust again through the improbable friendship of a goose. Popeye the Mastiff, who ran into a burning stable and saved seventeen terrified horses by nibbling at their hooves. And a pit bull named Dolly, whose antics with her best friend, Sheldon the tortoise, include games of tag. (Yes, picture a tortoise running after a dog!) Enhanced with beautiful full-color photographs, these true stories of camaraderie, affection, remarkable bravery are more thana lovely tribute; they are proof that dogs are every creature's best friend"--.

Seabiscuit : an American legend by Laura Hillenbrand

"The Eighty-Dollar Champion tells the dramatic odyssey of a horse called Snowman, saved from the slaughterhouse by a young Dutch farmer named Harry. Together, Harry and Snowman went on to become America's show-jumping champions, winning first prize in Madison Square Garden. Set in the mid to late 1950s, this book captures the can-do spirit of a Cold War immigrant who believed--and triumphed"--.

"Throughout history, people have loved, owned and ridden horses. They fascinate us, and we are drawn to books like The Horse Whisperer, events like The Kentucky Derby, and movies like Steven Spielberg's War Horse. Owners and non-horse owners alike have also discovered the amazing abilities of horses to help us heal and recover from disabling physical and mental conditions such as autism and multiple sclerosis by participating in Equine Therapy. Men and women afflicted with severe emotional damage are healing and making dramatic recoveries by receiving the simple love, understanding and acceptance that comes from establishing a relationship with a horse. The unique message of Riding Home is two-fold. It is the first and only book to explain why horses have this remarkable ability to heal and positively transform emotionally wounded men and women, whether they be troubled teens, prison inmates, or war veterans with post traumatic stress disorder. On a societal level, it offers a powerful argument for the expansion of equine programs that accomplish what many organizations that utilize traditional methods of psychotherapy and pharmaceuticals have been unable to achieve. To have a relationship with a horse is to discover and know yourself and the world with truth and compassion. Horses help us discover hidden parts of ourselves. They teach us that when we're not getting what we want, we're the ones who need to change"--.
