  • Groucho Marx famously once said: "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." Wise words, to be sure—but what if you could combine the two?

    I’m a dog person. I used to be a cat person, and I do still love my fluffy feline, but when I met my husband he came with a dog, and, well, I’ve gone to the other side. Fortunately for my bookish tendencies, the dog book is a well-established form.

    Heck, Lassie was published in 1940, and The Call of the Wild in 1903. Yet it seems there’s been a resurgence of popularity in dog stories. I can’t seem to stop running across them. I usually finish a dog book in a puddle of tears reaching for the tissue and burying my face into my sweet puppy’s fur. A great dog book reminds us why we’re dog people in the first place—and maybe that makes us cry.

    Here are my favorites in no particular order. Even though the summer is almost over, they will be a great addition to your future “Dog Days of Summer” reading list.

  • We sure do love Tapestry. Last time we made something for them, it was this fun William Shakespeare's Star Wars story. This time around, we're sharing some photos from Find Momo.

    Tap along and see if you can find our favorite border collie. And be sure to check out our other stories on Tapestry, and follow Momo's adventures at gofindmomo.com

  • BOOK Find Momo

    Play hide-and-seek with Instagram’s favorite border collie, hiding in every page of this New York Times best-selling book of beautiful landscape photography.

  • Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day! My beloved dog Javier made a visit to the Quirk headquarters to help out at the office (we are a pretty small operation after all). 

  • Australians love celebrating Australia Day for several reasons.

    Not only is it a public holiday (and we all love those) but it’s a time to gather the crew together and celebrate what it means to be an Aussie. Think playing cricket in your togs with ice-cream running down your arm coz it’s 40 degrees outside.

    For anyone who has ever had a dog, you will know that they are more than just a pet. A dog is a friend, companion and to many, a family member. Recent studies have actually shown that the average dog has the intelligence of a two year old human with a vocabulary of 165 to 250 words.

    So, in honor of man's best friend, we are going to take a closer look at five of the best canine companions... in comics.
