I have a wonderful 3rd grade reader who is truly only interested in
stories about dogs (or, sometimes, horses).  She is quickly making her
way through everything in our collection that is appropriate for her.
She is an energetic reader and I hate to lose her by not having enough
to match her interests.  If folks have age-appropriate dog story
suggestions they'd be willing to share, I will gladly post a HIT.

Here's what she has seen:
