Chaffee, Graham. Good Dog
This is essentially a short story in graphic format, and it can easily be read in one sitting. A stray dog named Ivan yearns to belong somewhere. A roving pack of dogs comes into town, and he considers joining their pack while also wondering if it would be better to be a house pet like one of his friends. It is impossible not to empathize with his desire to be part of a community while still keeping his freedom. While this is a story of one dog, the themes are universal. If you are a dog lover like me, you will adore the drawings of Ivan and the other dogs!
