Books About Your Best Bud

alisonpacecitydog1There are so many pet-related memoirs available these days. The Marley & Me phenom is just the tip of the iceberg! The Art of Racing in the Rain, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, and Merle’s Door just to mention a few of the ones generating a great deal of buzz.

Here are A few suggestions for wonderful books that are floating a little bit below the radar, but should not be missed!
The Dog Diet by Patti Lawson. This wonderful memoir retells how Patti’s dog helps her reduce her weight and stress and increase her daily joy at exactly a time in her life when she needs an intervening paw.

Another book to pick up for yourself or the pet lover in your life is My Buddy Butch by Jeff Marginean.   Butch has provided Jeff with a plethora of anecdotes for his book and his weekly radio show about being a ‘new dog dad -and single parent’ to boot!.  You’ll love Butch’s antics and the way Jeff retells each event!

One last suggestion is City Dog; A Novel. Alison pace, Author of Pug Hill takes us on ‘a charming journey of one woman’s search for happiness and fulfillment in New York City’ while living with her dog, Carli. It’s a tale that keeps on waggin’!
