14 Adorable Bookstore Dogs to Brighten Your Day

“A book in my hand and a dog by my side…we belong together.” —Edward Gorey

Welcome to the year of the (bookstore) dog! While books and cats make an excellent pairing (just check out these cuties for proof), let us not forget about our other furry friends.

Some of the dogs below are Official Bookstore Dogs™, while others are just dropping by for some solid book sniffs. But we know one thing to be true: they’re ALL good dogs.
