Not only is writing about animals one of my favorite pastimes, but so is reading about them! Since I'm not always in the mood to dive into a "dog owner's manual" to satisfy my reading needs, I sometimes like picture books to gush over as well. One of my January must haves was a super fun read, and the book I found wandering around during my shop time seems like a great addition to my animal library.While at Z Gallerie over the weekend, I stumbled upon this cute book called Little Dogs ($20) with piccys of some pretty adorable pups donning the pages. Complemented by fun quotes from lil dog lovers from around the globe, you can have something to actually read, and not just graze over the cute photos. Although I'm a fan of all dogs big and small, if you are a pint-sized pooch fanatic, this book would look pretty handsome on your chic coffee table.
