Presidential Pets: The Weird, Wacky, Little, Big, Scary, Strange Animals That Have Lived In The White House

Presidential_Pets.jpg

Many of us enjoyed the recent holiday on President's Day. This illustrated book Presidential Pets: The Weird, Wacky, Little, Big, Scary, Strange Animals That Have Lived In The White House can be a fun way for our grade school children to learn about these important people and their lives.

PresidentialPets_2.jpg

Presidential Pets provides a look at the animals that have lived in White House and features a rhyming verse for each commander-in-chief's pets, along with super cool facts, presidential stats, and amusing cartoon art.

John Quincy Adams kept an alligator in the bathtub, while Thomas Jefferson's pride and joy was his pair of bear cubs. Andrew Jackson had a potty-mouthed parrot, and Martin Van Buren got into a fight with Congress over his tow baby tigers. First daughter Caroline Kennedy's pony Macaroni had free riegn over the White House. But the pet-owningwinner of all the presidents was Theodore Roosevelt, who had a hyena, lion, zebra, badger, snake, rats, a nippy dog that bit the French ambassador, and more!

Written by Julia Moberg and illustrated by Jeff Albrecht Studios at Presidential Pets.

Hot New Pet Book -- A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans

WolfCalledRomeo.jpg

It is generally thought that dogs are descended from domesticated Grey Wolves many moons ago. So it stands to reason that those of us who love our dogs also tend to take a fancy to wolves, albeit from a distance.

But not always so distant! This new A Wolf Called Romeo by author and photographer Nick Jans is the true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, but sociable black wolf and the community of people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska.

The author had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years when a friendly encounter with a black wolf while walking his lab at twilight changes his and many other lives in this modern suburb on the edge of Alaskan wilderness.

Hot New Bird Book Release -- The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar by Martin Windrow

Owl.png

Here at Super Cool Pets we were surprised to hear the other day that pet birds such as parakeets, cockatiels, parrots are considered "exotic pets".

We understand that category for reptiles such as snakes and lizards, along with other normally wild animals such as rabbits, ferrets, mice, but birds and even fish?

So how about choosing an owl for a companion?

In The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar: Living with a Tawny Owl British military historian Martin Windrow tells the tale of his 15 year live-in relationship with a tawny owl he named "Mumble" who became his closest companion. Fascinating!

Hot New Pet Book Release -- Animal Madness by Laurel Braitman

Animal_Madness.png

We all are expected to put on a happy face here in America, but the reality is that life is fraught with suffering. Suffering and fear thereof can lead to depression, anxiety and mental illness.

If you live with an animal and are an observant sort, you likely know that non-humans suffer mentally as well as physically. Laurel Braitman noticed this in her anxiety-prone Bernese Mountain Dog. Extensive subsequent research brought her to the conclusion that animals can lose their minds just like we humans.

That's the premise of her Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- that nonhuman animals can suffer from mental illnesses that mirror those that humans endure. And they can recover, just like we can.

Fascinating stuff at Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves.
