The March/April issue of Bark is a reminder that Spring is on its way. Make the most of it by brushing up on “dog talk”—Dr. Nicholas Dodman and the folks at Tufts University translate what your dog’s trying to tell you when she sniffs, licks, bows, rolls or makes any of 35 lively canine “comments.” It’s also the season for March Madness and bracketology—Bark editors use it to determine the top dog of all time. Gear up for adventure with whitewater dogs, and find out how to improve the odds of finding a reliable pet sitter. The artful dog returns with artist Joe Andoe describing his “less is more” technique, which produces stunning art. Get a sneak preview of new fiction from Cathleen Schine, find out how Rex copes with his party nerves, and meet a neighborly Pug and some hardworking Border Collies.
