House Trained is the third novel by Jackie Bouchard that Champion of My Heart has reviewed in recent years. At this point, you can assume we’re fans. Big ones. This is going to sound weird, but stay with me. This book is so good, so enthralling, I almost barfed. Long story. It’s a good thing. Trust me.

ALL DOGS GO TO KEVIN – Everything Three Dogs Taught Me (That I Didn’t Learn in Veterinary School) is the debut memoir by veterinarian Dr. Jessica Vogelsang of veterinary blog fame — Pawcurious. The biggest compliment I can give the book is this … it’s so funny that I read parts of the book aloud to my husband. We’d both giggle and gasp, then I’d keep reading to myself.
Breath to Breath, a novel by Carrie Maloney, is not for the faint of heart, but it’s worth every tear shed and every moment of heartache. Breath to Breath tells the story of veterinarian Anna Dunlap, who finds herself in the impossible situation of working side by side at her veterinary hospital with an animal abuser.
Bark and Lunge: Saving My Dog from Training Mistakes is a memoir by Kari Neumeyer, who is a fellow freelance / independent writer. It tells the story of a German Shepherd Dog named Isis (bought from a breeder on impulse). Let me just say that the breeder specializes in police and military working dogs. With just that bit of information and the book’s title, you can probably guess where the story goes from there.
