E. B. White on Dogs

The best and funniest of his essays, poems, letters, and sketches depicting over a dozen of White's various canine companions. Featured here are essays such as "Two Letters, Both Open," where White takes on the Internal Revenue Service, and also "Bedfellows," with its "fraudulent reports" from White's ignoble old dachshund, Fred. ("I just saw an eagle go by. It was carrying a baby.")
