Book Giveaway -- Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger by Bo Hoefinger

badtobone.jpg

We were recently sent a free copy of Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger which has received five star reviews. The book is written by Bo Hoefinger, a mixed-breed shelter dog who also writes Dogster.com's "For the Love of Dog" blog. The cover blurb describes it best:

Let's get this clear right away: I'm a dog. I'm 1'10" and weigh 63 lbs, and although I'm a mutt on the outside, I'm a purebred on the inside. My good nature comes from the Golden Retriever side of the family, while my stubbornness is clearly from my Chowchow bloodlines. I've got Rastafarian ears, a black tongue for licking, and paws that should be on a dog twice my size.

I type 60 words a minute.

My name is Bo, and this is my story.

From shelter dog reject to beloved pet and popular doggie blogger, Bo Hoefinger's life has been anything but ordinary. Join this incorrigible canine as he welcomes us into his life, complete with his wacky "parents," a constipated feline housemate, and chipmunk warfare.

And here's a short clip of Bo taking his canine good citizen test:


Bo's book is dedicated to "all the shelter workers, rescue groups and animal welfare proponents who make this world a better place, one animal at a time. You are unsung heroes and a true inspiration." Bo generously donates 10% of his proceeds to help homeless dogs as well as cats.

We are giving away one copy of Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger. To receive it, please email us: news@supercoolpets.com -- first come, first serve!

Amazon Hot New Pet Book Release -- Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog

scentofmissing.jpg

This new book Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog by Susannah Charleson should make a fascinating summer read for anyone interested in dog training and the human/animal bond. This book offers a glimpse into the world of a dog handler and her search and rescue missions with her Golden Retriever partner.

At the time of this writing, the author and her Golden Retriever Puzzle had spent several hundred training searches together. To be successful, not only did the pair have to create a strong bond, but they had to learn how to communicate in depth by decoding each others' body signals.

Hot New Amazon Pet Book Release: The Legacy of Beezer and Boomer: Lessons on Living and Dying from My Canine Brothers

beezerandboomer.jpg

It is likely most of us will outlive our pets. In the aftermath of receiving sad health news about a pet, many pet owners will experience anticipatory grief. This book should help.

The Legacy of Beezer and Boomer: Lessons on Living and Dying from My Canine Brothers was written by the compassionate Doug Koktavy to share the coping strategies he learned on his own after his pet received a painful diagnosis. He developed a personalized version of a hospice plan for pets called the Presence Plan. It is designed to be an adjunct to the traditional treatment plan a vet provides to a client.

"If you share your life with pets who are truly your best friends or family, you must read Doug Koktavy's book. You'll relate to his life with his beloved Beezer and Boomer in a thousand ways. And your life will be richer from having met them." --Laurel Lagoni, president and CEO, World by the Tail, Inc.

Amazon Hot New Pet Book Release -- Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets

homeprepared.jpg

American consumers are paying top dollar for corn meal-based dry pet food. It's one thing for cheap brands, but another matter entirely that the packaging of many high-end foods list corn meal as the primary ingredient.

Feeding carnivores corn meal + additives can't be healthy. Whatever money is saved in the supermarket will ultimately be spent several times over at the vet's office.

Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets by Patricia Schenck is a second edition that has been completely rewritten to present the latest nutritional recommendations for your healthy dog and cat based on current research. It also contains an extensive discussion of medical disorders that can be managed in part through diet. You will love the simple recipes that can easily be prepared in your own kitchen at home. Sounds like a keeper!
