There's a Sci-Fi author called Jack Campbell and he did a 6 book series called "Lost Fleet". An excellent military sci-fi series, one of the best i've read in a long time.

The Lost Fleet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

you should write book reviews, lol.

Are there any dog books (fiction) you could recommend along these lines?
Scent of the Missing by Susannah Charleson is a nonfiction book about search and rescue dogs that I picked up on a whim for $1 and really enjoyed.

My copy of Come, Thou Tortoise arrived yesterday. It looks really fun. I have to finish Running the Books and maybe Mockingjay before I start it.

I know but some are humorous, like this one: Its a book about a hierarchy of dogs , and their thoughts

I havent read it yet but it looks interesting. I tend to read books that are "heavy" and dont like popular non-fiction, so dog perspectives are just the thing for summer reading.

Also this one about a spoiled poodle:

I'm only a couple chapters in, but it reminds me of something else I've read before (in a good way) but I can't put my finger on it. I need to dig through my fiction shelves.

I love primary characters who live much more in their heads than in the world.

Oh! If there's some other book that reads like this one, I'd love to know the title when you get to that digging.

I'm enjoying Come, Thou Tortoise both for the writing and because I can't wait to see where it's going. Absolutely love the 7-year-old Audrey.
