I've just finished MARLEY & ME, and I loved it!  It made me laugh and it made me cry.  I absolutely couldn't put it down until I had finished!  Can anyone recommend any other books like it?

Thanks Deanna!  I remember hearing of From Baghdad, With Love, but had forgotten about it.  My WL just keeps growing and growing!

I agree with the Lost and Found recommendation. I randomly picked it up at a bookstore because of the picture of the lab and I'm so glad I read it! :)

Second vote for John Katz's books... there are a couple (New Work of Dogs and Living With Dogs) are more instructional/training/behavior-themed, but most are autobiographical.

I'd recommend "Apollo's Creed". I just finished it and you will need to have tissues close by for sure. It is a pretty small book and a fast read.
