BOOKS. NON FICTION.

Inside A Dog’s Favourite Quotes

‘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!

Occasionally my brain sidles off into cul-de-sacs – book related perhaps but cul-de-sacs nonetheless.
Depending on your point of view these posts are either book related pot-pourri or the signs of a troubled mind!

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
Since I was about 7, I’ve loved reading books. My taste is pretty varied – contemporary fiction, translated fiction, crime thrillers, biographies…pretty much anything really.
Our family dog Beau has different tastes – his only taste in books is simply eating book jackets!!! His taste are more long walks, mud and rivers. And while he does walks, mud and rivers, I listen to audiobooks, podcasts and music.
Originally from Scotland, and now a 30-year exile in London, I still hanker for some things from home, so I wax lyrical about Irn Bru 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…..well you’re very welcome!
Help With Inside A Dog
The dog is a luddite when it comes to IT. I’m even more of a luddite! So we need lots of help with Inside A Dog.
The Theme is Divi from the fabulous people at Elegant Themes.
We are hosted by TSO – no question too daft should be their motto!
The images throughout come from a variety of sources, but in the main I use Unsplash, Little Visuals, Morgue File, Picjumbo, Shutterstock, and the wonderful image sites of Jay Mantri and Ryan McGuire (Gratisography)
We Came. We Saw. We Concurred.
