Dog Songs by Mary Oliver

by Christine Sine


Don’t you love it when a friend gives you a book that is a delightfully rich discovery of humour, life and of course our shared love for dogs.

Such is Mary Oliver’s poetry book Dog SongsI highly recommend it, not just to my dog loving friends but to anyone who appreciates Mary Oliver, poetry or humour.

What a delight to also find this youtube video of her reading one of the poems which speaks for itself.

Fantastic poem and reading. As Mary Oliver read her poem, I was petting my shepherd laying next to me. Another favorite of mine is “God Got a Dog”, a book with sweet, single-page stories.

Thanks Suzanne – I just added your suggestion to my wish list of books. It certainly looks fascinating.
