Over the holiday break, we received the devastating news that our amazing border collie friend Angelo earned his wings on an ordinary night in his sleep. If you don't already know Angelo's story and other tales and images from his epic love story with Leland Dirks -- Angelo's human companion, our friend and one of my favorite independent authors -- now is the perfect time to show some support by buying and reading one (or all) of the books by Leland Dirks.
My book review process typically starts with finally being offered a book of interest. I agree to write and post a review. Then, I promptly freak-out about finding the time to read the book. Weather, in turns out, did me a favor. Thursday, May 3, 2018, we got a ton of heavy, wet snow. So much that I didn't go to agility class. So much that we lost power (and phone service) for about 12 hours. I did as much writing work as possible on my laptop and through sparing use of our battery back-up system to access wifi a few times to check email, but there was only so much I could do. So, I read Stephanie Feldstein's book all in one sitting. Here is my book review Animal Lovers Guide to Changing the World - Practical Advice and Everyday Actions for a More Sustainable, Humane, and Compassionate Planet. Details on the book giveaway at the end. Scroll down.
Here's our All Hands on Pet book review. The full title is All Hands on Pet - Your How-To Guide on Home Physical Therapy Methods for Pets, and the book is written by veteran physical therapist Susan E. Davis. Inside you'll find deep information for dogs and later in the book even ideas for cats, birds, and other pets. I only read the dog parts. Here's what I think about the book.
I met Maria Christina Schultz through a mutual friend recently. She is doing great things — publishing books, speaking at events, representing top dog brands online and such. If you are interested at all in doing stand-up paddleboarding with your dog, you definitely need to know her.
