BOOKS. NON FICTION.

Inside A Dog’s Favourite Quotes
Our thoughts on quotes are captured perfectly by Dorothy L Sayers!
‘Like a piece of ice on a hot stove, the poem must ride on its own melting’
A poetry book or anthology is an ever present – a sort of literary comfort blanket to dip in and out of usually!
The benefits of a Scottish education are debatable – but it has left me with a collection of poetry quotes – which we add to when something takes our fancy
One of the joys of commuting in London – perhaps the only joy – is the celebration of poetry on London Underground. We’ve even taken circuitous routes home looking for it!

WHO WE ARE.
About Inside The Dog and I.
“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read” Groucho Marx
I’ve loved reading books since I was a kid. My taste is pretty varied – contemporary fiction, translated fiction, crime thrillers, biographies…pretty much anything really.
Our family dogs Ellie and Beau have different tastes – long walks, mud and rivers. Fortunately the long walks, mud and rivers give me time to listen to audiobooks, podcasts and music.
Originally from Scotland, and now a 30-year exile in London, I still hanker for all things Glasgow….. so I wax lyrical about Irn Bru, Glasgow’s pubs, square sausage and Scotch Pies, along with quoting lines from ‘Gregory’s Girl’!!!
My blog here at Inside A Dog is a just a way to keep me amused and pass the time but if you fancy having a look around….. you’re very welcome!
Help With Inside A Dog
The dogs are experts on mud – alas they are luddites when it comes to websites – and they know more than me.
So we depend on others.
