Man’s Best Friend

Out of the Mouths of Humans

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.
— Groucho Marx

Dr. Barklett

A very bright dog, he was reading at age two and had read the entirety of Shakespeare by three. He finished boarding school at age five and sojourned to London, where he worked for the the Dog-eared Books Emporium. By age thirteen he owned the store. Known for his memory for quotations and all things literary, "Ask Dr. Barklett" became a byword in the kennel when someone was stumped. Dr. Barklett is now retired and lives with his family in Kemah, TX.
