NEW BOOK RELEASES–Dog Life: The History, Culture & Love of the Dog
I’m delighted to announce the release of my latest pet care book, DOG LIFE: The History, Culture & Love of the Dog. This is the first time I’ve published with full-color interior photographs. I wanted this dog gift book to be beautiful, as well as provide fun insight into the dogs that share our lives.
The book is divided into four parts that explore the evolution and history of dogs; the canine influence on our culture from paintings and media to literature and more; basic anatomy and dog care concerns; and finally, a gallery of breeds to celebrate the many gorgeous purebred dogs.
I hope the book will help you appreciate the old and young dogs you have, or even help you choose the right dog-safe treats from your holiday plate. Here’s a sample of the pages, along with a song from our STRAYS show that fit the topic. *s*
Where to Find Dog Life Book
Because there are so many pictures in the book (more than 250!), DOG LIFE could not be digitized into all Ebook formats. The book releases December 1st in paperback, hardcover, and December 8 TODAY! in Kindle (Print Replica) versions. I’d encourage you to order EARLY if you want the book in time for Christmas. *s* Here are direct links:

Amy I have nearly finished the preread copy of Dog Life and it is fantastic. The pictures are beautiful and many are very unique. I even chuckled with your photo of Greyfriar’s Bobby as I have the identical photo most recently taken in August when in Edinburgh. However, I have that same picture each trip back to 1972!. The book is of great value to dog owners and even tho retired from showing and breeding dogs, I still learned many new facts. I highly recommended this book to my family members with their new pups. What I’m not sure is where to send a review if there is a particular format for that.
Thanks again for all your books
Thanks so much Judi! You can post a review anywhere the book is sold but not until Sunday when it’s released. 😀 I will send out an email with all the links early next week. I am so glad you enjoyed it!
… and if it’s okay, I will share some of your comments here on the book page on Amazon!
That’s fine and when I get the other email I will respond to that as well. It is a good book that every one with a dog should have. Now I can’t wait for book 5 of the thriller series!
PS when will the naming contest be available……I’m waiting….Judi
…Naming contest will launch as soon as I’m sure how many dogs/cats characters will be in HIT AND RUN thriller. *s*
