In the spirit of A Christmas Story, here are three new-ish dog books that are guaranteed to warm your stockings this year –– Walking With Peety, Arthur: The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find A Home, and Saving Sadie: How A Dog That No One Wanted Inspired the World…
Nice photo-essay of William Wegman’s weird, wild, wonderful world of dog art in this weekend’s New York Times Magazine!
Sometimes a dog isn’t just a dog — as we’ve seen these past few years with the explosion of commercials using celebrity dog spokesmodels discovered on Instagram and Twitter. These well-paid (and surely well-fed) “pet influencers” get book deals, endorsement deals, and TV shows — but I’m still not convinced how well they take direction — as this recent article in (The New York Times) explains.
Yeah, okay, it might appear a bit artsy-fartsy on the outside — but you can’t judge a dog book by its cover, right? This elegant catalog was chock full of tasteful portraits and chewy tidbits for any high-or-low-falutin’ dog lover!
This ‘old’ dog story by Adam Gopnik — from 2011 — about a couple getting a pooch for their daughter re-appeared on The New Yorker website last week, and I thought you might enjoy it!
Before Cesar Millan and the explosion of TV dog trainers, there was Dr. Patricia McConnell, a world-renowned animal behaviorist and author, who has published a new dog book, The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of A Woman and Her Dog.
McConnell takes her years of animal expertise to come to terms with her own troubled past while treating a fearful, aggressive Border Collie named Will. Also, be sure to check out her past best-sellers, For Love of A Dog and The Other End of the Leash.
