My top five favourite books

What shall I make for dinner tonight?

I've been tagged by my human friend Blue to reveal my top 5 favourite books. Let's get one thing straight, this is strictly MY list. I'm not letting J1 or J2 select their favourites. It is MY blog, after all.

"Dumb Witness" by Agatha Christie.
An obvious choice. Wire Fox Terrier Monsieur Bob solves the mystery (with a little help from Poirot).

"Three Men in a Boat" by Jerome K Jerome.
Tales of Montmorency the Wire Fox Terrier (and three other blokes in a boat, who are far less interesting).

"Cool Cat, Hot Dog" by Sandy Turner
OK, I know it's a book meant for children, but I happen to know that the author has a WFT called Dexter who is the "hot dog" in the title.

"All the Dogs of My Life" by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Autobiography of an eccentric. Guess what? She had fox terriers!

"A Dog Day" by Walter Emanuel
This book describes one day in the life of a rather naughty dog. He chases cats and steals food. He must be a fox terrier!
Some of you may be wondering why I didn't select "The Thin Man" by Dashiell Hammett. The film adaptation stars Asta the Wire Fox Terrier but in the original book Asta was a Schnauzer!
Do any of you want to list your favourite books? If so, please consider yourself TAGGED!
