Why not start a feline section? There is the "Cat Who" series; it's gone downhill but it's still popular.

Yep, there are several series including cats in Mystery, plus all the other genres.  Go ahead & start a new thread for them.

I personally love Jack London.  Call of the Wild and White Fang are just two of my favorites.  I think I've read Call of the Wild a hundred times.

Do you mean "White Fang"?  I prefer it to 'call', myself.

No problem.  I am the official walking library of the forum, you realize.
Oh, I just remembered a piece of canine fiction, I don't remember if I already mentioned it.  A mm pb by Doranna Durgin, and the title's escaped, dad blame it.  Is it "A Sudden Feral Darkness", or just "A Feral Darkness"?  Anyway, there's a tricolor corgi central to the story.

Man, I love you guys!! <GroupFrigginHug>

This is one of the coolest threas I've ever come upon!

I've read some of the suggestions and not others...The Chesuli series I finished when I was younger, and I was sorry I bothered...That author was depressing for the sake of being depressing!!

For those of you who like Sci-Fi and canines...Please allow me to suggest K-9 Corps by Kenneth Von Gunden...There is only four books in the series, but I wish there had been a lot more...Easy reads and enjoyable characters...It's about a couple of guys and their team of dogs...Dogs who can talk I might add...Pretty fun! http://www.amazon.com/K-9-Corps-Kenneth-Von-Gunden/dp/0441091288/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1202281510&sr=1-4

For more dog stuff, please do not forget the Island of Blue Dolphins and then there's also the Big Red series by Jim Kjelgaard...They're mostly considered young adult or teen stuff, but I still pick it up and reread it for some brain candy.
Hear me my chiefs. I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I shall fight no more forever.

I vaguely recall the K-9 Corps books, did you see the talking dog in the Phule's Company books?  And Ralph Von Wau Wau at Callahan's Place?  Do you ever read the old A.P. Terhune books?

I agree with you about the Cheysuli series Reptyle, I kept plugging along hoping that the characters would stop being so damned stupid, but each book got more depressing than the last. :P  I don't think I've even bothered to finish the series.

I didn't.  It turned me off so badly that I didn't bother reading another series of hers, even though a friend recommended it.  You exactly hit the nail on the head, Grey; those characters were just such morons, it made me crazy.
