Twelve-year-old Sam dreams of owning a purebred puppy, convinced they are superior to a mongrel like Max, the family's ancient pet. Smelly, disheveled, and affectionate, Max is a walking miracle. Near death's door when Sam's sister rescued him, Max survived and seems immortal. That's too bad, for Sam's mother says no new dog if it's going to bother Max. Undaunted, Sam decides to save enough money to buy a puppy anyway and takes a job walking dogs in CountryWood, the fancy gated community in his rural town. There he clashes with Justin, a rich, pampered "burbie" who owns just the kind of dog Sam wants: a sable German shepherd. Justin is determined to get Sam fired and destroy his dream. Their feud, echoing the conflict between rich city transplants and the townies, escalates into violence.

Dogs that visit patients with cancer have been convincingly shown to reduce stress, loneliness, and mood disturbance that may complicate cancer care. In addition, dogs may provide important motivation for patients to maintain rehabilitation programs that have been shown to reduce cancer risk and improve cancer survival. Outlining all of these issues and many more, Therapy Dogs in Cancer Care: A Valuable Complementary Treatment is a ground-breaking, highly innovative addition to the literature on cancer care. Detailing a comprehensive summary of truly impressive research demonstrating the ability of dogs to serve an important therapeutic role within the cancer arena and in other serious medical conditions, the text provides highly practical advice and very helpful “tips” to ensure that those who wish to employ dogs to assist the cancer patient have the necessary knowledge and “tools” to optimize outcomes. Authored by Dawn A. Marcus, MD, an expert in both pain management and health improvement through human and dog interaction, Therapy Dogs in Cancer Care: A Valuable Complementary Treatment is an extremely well-organized, well-researched, and highly readable book. Providing practical suggestions to effectively incorporate dogs into cancer care, with detailed instructions about requirements for therapy dogs to ensure visits are safe and limit unwanted spread of infection, Therapy Dogs in Cancer Care: A Valuable Complementary Treatment is an invaluable reference that will inform and delight both the clinician desiring a “how-to” text as well as the casual reader.

I talked my sister into letting me help her write this book because I knew it would take a lot of work to get it the way she wanted it. There are quotes here from people whose dogs were acting out and driving them loony. These desperate owners called Eileen because she is well known in these parts or because their veterinarian or a friend recommended her. She jumps in her blue jeep and drives to their house. She evaluates the dog and the owner. It’s usually the owner’s fault I’ve discovered. She tells them, “This is a very cool dog. He’s awesome. We can get him straightened around in no time.” The relief they feel is huge. I’ve seen Eileen turn out of control dogs into angels in seconds. After some basic obedience training the dogs and the owners often attend an “agility” or “therapy dog” class taught by Eileen. The dogs are excited and happy to be there with the other dogs. It’s like camp or a festival. The owners fall in love with their dogs again. The dogs, of course, always love their owners, no matter what. Amazing creatures. Everyone should read this book. You should especially read it before you get a dog so you know exactly what’s involved. I’m not only talking to the adults I’m talking to the kids too. Mickey McGovern has worked in the Hollywood film industry for fifteen years as a writer and a visual effects producer. But more importantly she’s Eileen Tonick’s sister.

An accidental dog swap unleashes an unexpected love match in this new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia London. Carly Kennedy's life is in a spiral. She is drowning in work, her divorced parents are going through their midlife crises, and somehow Carly's sister convinces her to foster Baxter--a basset hound rescue with a bad case of the blues. When Carly comes home late from work one day to discover that the dog walker has accidentally switched out Baxter for another perkier, friendlier basset hound, she has reached the end of her leash. When Max Sheffington finds a depressed male basset hound in place of his cheerful Hazel, he is bewildered. But when cute, fiery Carly arrives on his doorstep, he is intrigued. He was expecting the dog walker, not a pretty woman with firm ideas about dog discipline. And Carly was not expecting a handsome, bespectacled man to be feeding her dog mac and cheese. Baxter is besotted with Hazel, and Carly realizes she may have found the key to her puppy’s happiness. For his sake, she starts to spend more time with Hazel and Max, until she begins to understand the appeal of falling for your polar opposite.

This book brings together authoritative information about the child/dog bond as it is manifested with family dogs, visiting therapy dogs, and service dogs trained to assist children with disabilities. Despite the widely accepted view that participating in a dog’s care and interacting with dogs in behaviorally healthy ways is a route to becoming responsible and compassionate, research on this complex dynamic is difficult to design, time-consuming to collect, and challenging to analyze. This volume synthesizes theory, research, and practice, bringing all to bear upon child/dog interactions in homes, schools, libraries, and the community at large. Children, Dogs and Education serves as a handbook for a diverse group of adults who seek to build positive relationships between children and dogs—parents/families, professional dog trainers, teachers, librarians, mental health professionals, health care professionals, and university faculty. The study of interactions between human and nonhuman animals has captured the imagination of an international community of researchers from many different fields and professions. Even though dogs are ubiquitous in the lives of most children, studies of children’s interactions with dogs in families and communities are lacking. Most of the previous research on the human-canine bond has focused on adolescents and adults or, even when younger children are the focus, it has tended to rely on parents to speak for children. There are three features of this book that make it unique. First, it goes beyond exploring the child/dog bond to examine additional important issues, including: children’s concepts of responsible care, their ability to interpret dogs’ behavioral cues, and their ideas about canine behavioral issues/training. Second, unlike most other work to date, it represents children’s voices through cases, interviews, and drawings. Finally, the contributors to this edited work use their collective wisdom to draw educational implications and suggest direction in preparing the next generation of dog guardians.

I have always believed that God has a special purpose for animals. During my lifetime, I have had several Pet Kids, but the three that will forever remain in my memory are Kelly, Max and Rudi. The First Part of my book introduces these three and represents some occurrences as they actually happened. The human characters are based on persons I have known in the past; however, my portrayal of them is my own creation as well as many activities of the Pet Kids. The Second and Third Parts of my book bring to life other people that exist only in my imagination, but I feel as though I know them personally. They are wonderful and their Pet Kids are extraordinary. I hope you agree and if you are Pet Parents, or if you are not, that you will relate to my sentiments expressed in The Pet Kids and God.

There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is, well ... there is a lot of bad news out there. At least if you’re getting it from TV. Eighty-three percent of Americans believe that television news is the most negative, compared to newspapers, radio, and the Internet (The Wirthlin Report, Feb. ‘04). Author Kris Patrow admits it’s partly her fault. For nearly twenty years she was bringing it into their living rooms as a television news anchor and reporter. Bad news was her job. The good news is, that’s not the whole story. It never was. And Kris is on a mission to prove it. I Witness News. I Witness Miracles: A Reporter’s Notebook is step one of that mission: from reporting the countless “good news” stories that never made air, to pointing out the good things that happen in everyday life; things that many people have forgotten how to see in this gloom-and-doom world painted by the media. At a time when television news has many of us closing our doors and eyeing each other with suspicion, I Witness News. I Witness Miracles: A Reporter’s Notebook reports stories that will help people see each other and the world in a new, more compassionate way and see miracles so common, they re-thread the needle connecting us to one another.
