Amazon Hot New Holiday Gift Books -- Dogs and Mo Smells Christmas

Books are generally highly appreciated gifts at Christmas. We have spent many a holiday afternoon browsing through the stash we received. Definitely the gifts that keep on giving. Here are a couple of new ones:

dogs_book.jpg

Dogs by multi-award-winning photographer Tim Flach is a follow-up to his critically-acclaimed Equus. Through photographs of dogs in varied settings and locations, solitary and in groups, Mr. Flach creates an "engaging portrait of the physical and spiritual lives of dogs (breeds and crossbreeds of all types) around the globe."

Smells are powerful way that we remember events and emotions over the course of our lives. Mo Smells Christmas: A Scentsational Journey (Mo's Nose)by Margaret Hyde is a sweet book for the little ones at Christmas. Readers will meander through the sweet smells of Christmas with Mo--"from the fresh-cut pine of the Christmas tree to sugary goodness of Gingerbread to the rich delight of a chocolate Santa to ultimately the JOY of Christmas."

PetScoop: The National Dog Show Presented by Purina Airs Thanksgiving Day

dogshow1110.jpg

The National Dog Show Presented by Purina, the most widely viewed dog show in America, is broadcast nationwide in high definition on NBC today Thanksgiving Day immediately following the Macy's Parade, around noon. It reaches an audience of nearly 20 million viewers each year.

The Kennel Club of Philadelphia's two benched, all-breed dog shows were actually held this year on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21. The shows, sanctioned by The American Kennel Club, help raise money for the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine with support from the Purina ProPlan brand dog food.

The National Dog Show is one of the few remaining and oldest benched dog shows in the United States, held annually since 1933. A benched show requires the participating dogs to be stationed on assigned benches when they are not being shown in competition. Therefore, interested spectators, breeders, handlers and attendees can interact, ask questions, and share information about the various breeds present at the show. A non-benched dog show does not require all dogs to remain "benched" throughout the competition.

Dogs Notice Our Every Move -- Tell Me Who's Watching by Lisa Hartman

dogwatching.jpg

Have you ever noticed that your dogs are always watching you? They notice details many humans overlook -- small things mean a lot. They know your routine and when you change your behavior. An engrossing article by trainer Lisa Hartman on dogs' obsession with their humans, Tell Me Who's Watching, will strike a chord with all of us who live with dogs.

"Every breath you take, every move you make, I'll be watching you." While this line from a popular song written by Sting was about obsessive love, the lyrics could equally be applied to your dog. Did you know you are training your dog even when you are not trying to train him? Every move you make sends a message to your dog and unofficially trains him to behave a certain way.

dialdynamitedog.jpgLisa Hartman is a well known and respected New York and Miami dog trainer and author of DIAL A DYNAMITE DOG, a dog training book that "cuts to the chase" and speaks to the pet owner in "plain english".
