Notable: Dog tales

Fetch one of these new books for people who adore dogs.

Greyhounds (Stewart, Tabori & Chang) by Barbara Karant, with an introduction by Alice Sebold, is a collection of photographs gorgeous and sometimes goofy of the sleek breed; profits benefit greyhound rescue groups.

Izzy & Lenore: Two Dogs, an Unexpected Journey and Me (Villard) by Jon Katz is the author's latest story about the dogs of Bedlam Farm — this one a touching recounting of border collie Izzy's work as a canine hospice volunteer.

Old Dogs Are the Best Dogs (Simon & Schuster) by Gene Weingarten, with photos by Michael S. Williamson, is a collection of irresistible portraits and bios of dozens of gray-muzzled pooches, by two Pulitzer Prize winners.
