Author John Pappas Seeks Interesting Dog Stories To Be Published In Bark News

Bark News is published online by John Pappas, author of 'That Dog Will Never Hunt' and 'When Wolf Comes'

Do you know any good dog news stories? Who doesn't? Bark News is accepting stories for inclusion in the next issue to be published online. Dog stories submitted must be interesting to a wide cross-section of dog lovers. The best stories submitted each month will be published online and the person submitting the story will receive a free, personalized copy of 'That Dog Will Never Hunt'.

"One of the few constants in my life," stated Mr. Pappas, "is that I’m a dog guy. Dogs have always responded to me, and as a writer, the ways humans interact with dogs cover such a wide range of attitudes and emotions I felt compelled to portray those contrasts and experiences. 'That Dog Will Never Hunt', for instance, came about over a period of time and takes a reader to locations from Alaska to Louisiana. Enter these stories and meet professional dog trainers, a struggling artist, displaced rancher, desperate Texas farmer, a kid that knows his dog is his best friend, and others that will surprise and let readers see the influence of dogs in people’s lives in a new way."

"Readers have told me 'That Dog Will Never Hunt' stirs memories about the dogs in their lives, past and present, from professional dog trainers to the person next door who has a mixed breed they adopted from PAWS. These 12 stories are really more about the people that live with dogs and how they interact. Besides being entertained, readers will better understand why dogs do the things they do, and perhaps more about the people they live with. As Jodi at Woods Creek Kennels wrote in her review, “You’ll never look at man’s best friend the same way again.”

Submissions should be 1000 words or less. If the story is over 1000 words, Pappas requests that the submitter query first.
