Scottish Terrier Book Recommendation: Dogs of War by Kathleen Kinsolving

Reader Kathleen Kinsolving was nice enough to send me a copy of her recent book Dogs of War: The Stories of FDR’s Fala, Patton’s Willie, and Ike’s Telek. Fala and Telek, of course, are Scotties while Willie is another kind of terrier.

It’s a sweet little hardcover book that would make a great gift for the Scottish Terrier lovers in your life, including yourselves if you choose to go the self-gifting route.

What especially impressed me is that Kathleen turned up some great famous Scottie photos that I haven’t seen before. (Forgive the quality as I had to photograph it myself to reproduce here.) Were any of you familiar with this one of Fala getting ready for his close-up with the White House press corps?

And while we’re on the subject of Scottish Terrier literature, here’s an old post on Scottie books for kids and, if you’ve got time, the entire archive of book posts past.

Got the book for my husband for Christmas, good, but much smaller than I thought it would be.

Yes, it is indeed a small book, not a big coffee-table style thing, but I think that’s part of its appeal.

P.S. when I say small, I mean smaller than a mini-ipad.
