Amazon Hot New Pet Book Realease -- Show Dog: The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred

In honor of The Westminster Kennel Club 136th Annual Dog Show 2012 which is taking place this week on Monday and Tuesday, February 13-14 at Madison Square Garden, we are reading a book that takes a close look at the fascinating world of breeders and dog show lovers.

The book Show Dog: The Charmed Life and Trying Times of a Near-Perfect Purebred by Josh Dean follows Jack, a champion Australian shepherd, over the course of a year from an inexperienced adolescent to seasoned adult show dog. The book features his owner, his handler, his breeder so we can learn what it's like to own a show dog and to train one.

The book also explores the history and science of purebred dog breeding and the dog show culture--judging, training, naming, promoting, hairstyling, kennel-owning, RV-driving, hotel-finding, treat-selecting, and more.

Holdiay Pet Book Gift Idea -- Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Luis Carlos Montalvan

untiltuesday.jpg

Our regular readers here at Super Cool Pets know how we love our Golden Retrievers. If you are looking for a heartwarming gift book this holiday season, look no further than Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Luis Carlos Montalvan.

The author is a seventeen-year veteran and former captain in the U.S. Army, where he earned the Combat Action Badge, two Bronze Stars, and the Purple Heart. It comes as no surprise to anyone who has lived with a Golden that his dog Tuesday transformed his life forever.

This review from Lee Woodruff, author of In an Instant: A Family's Journey of Love and Healing (with Bob Woodruff) and Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress says it all:

Wow, what a book! I think I was crying on page 3. The collision of man and dog, and the unbreakable bond they form, made my heart leap. Everyone should read this book to better understand not only the ravages of war, but the amazing capacity of the human spirit to rebound. I dare anyone to read this book and not believe in the power of love to heal.

Until Tuesday is available for Amazon Kindle.
