Issue 99: Fall 2019

Autumn is also traditionally the season during which publishers release new books, and in this issue, we present a cornucopia of dog-centric works; the publishing world really can’t seem to get enough of their love. Our Dogs, Ourselves is bestselling author-researcher Alexandra Horowitz’s newest, and we jumped at the chance to talk with her about it, and about its focus on the human side of the dual-species bond. We chat with Patrick McDonnell, Bark’s favorite cartoonist and the man behind the MUTTS comic strip, about his newest collection and 25 years of bringing us the inimitable cast of characters we’ve long loved.
