The uplifting and unforgettable true story of a US Marine, the stray dog he met on an Afghan battlefield, and how they saved each other and now travel America together, "spreading the message of stubborn positivity." In 2010, Sergeant Craig Grossi was doing intelligence work for Marine RECON--the most elite fighters in the Corps--in a remote part of Afghanistan. While on patrol, he spotted a young dog "with a big goofy head and little legs" who didn't seem vicious or run in a pack like most strays they'd encountered. After eating a piece of beef jerky Craig offered--against military regulations--the dog began to follow him. "Looks like you made a friend," another Marine yelled. Grossi heard, "Looks like a 'Fred.'" The name stuck, and a beautiful, life-changing friendship was forged. Fred not only stole Craig's heart; he won over the RECON fighters, who helped Craig smuggle the dog into heavily fortified Camp Leatherneck in a duffel bag--risking jail and Fred's life. With the help of a crew of DHL workers, a sympathetic vet, and a military dog handler, Fred eventually made it to Craig's family in Virginia. Months later, when Craig returned to the U.S., it was Fred's turn to save the wounded Marine from Post-Traumatic Stress. Today, Craig and Fred are touching lives nationwide, from a swampy campground in a Louisiana State Park to the streets of Portland, Oregon, and everywhere in between. A poignant and inspiring tale of hope, resilience, and optimism, with a timeless message at its heart--"it is not what happens to us that matters, but how we respond to it"--Craig & Fred is a shining example of the power of love to transform our hearts and our lives.

Combat Black Dog Syndrome worldwide; a portion of all proceeds from Black Dog Project will be donated to black dog rescue. One of Tumblr's most viral blogs of 2014, the Black Dogs Project is a stunning photo series by animal photographer Fred Levy. Known as "Black Dog Syndrome" in animal shelters and rescues, it refers to the unfortunate phenomenon that black dogs are frequently the LAST dogs to be adopted and the FIRST dogs to be euthanized in rescue shelters. Animal photographer Fred Levy couldn't believe that it was true, so he began talking with shelters. Not only does the phenomen exist, but he discovered it's an epidemic. Levy decided to turn his camera lens to black dogs, showing the world how beautiful they truly are. He called the photo series, The Black Dogs Project, and the stunning photographs have been shared worldwide, spreading awareness and attention to the problem. A portion of all proceeds for Black Dogs Project will be donated to black dog rescue.
More than fifteen years ago, Tamar Geller began her career as a dog
trainer by observing a scientific study of wolves in the wild. She
realized that the socialization and parenting techniques they used
to raise their cubs were rooted in bonding, communication, and
play--not in aggression, dominance, or punishment. If people used
these techniques when training their dogs, she realized, there
would be no need for prong collars, choke chains, or any kind of
physical or verbal aggression. She realized we can make it "fun"
for our dogs to listen to us and behave as we want them to.
When David Rosenfelt first met his wife, Debbie, he also met her golden retriever, Tara... and he fell head over heels for both of them. Many years later, inspired by Tara, David and Debbie have dedicated their lives to rescuing thousands of unloved and unwanted dogs - sometimes living with up to 40 dogs at any one time. So here is the book dedicated to the inspirational canine who started it all, and taught David everything he knows. (Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that's about it.) Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: It's not the human) and why random barking will never be something that can be eliminated. Lessons From Tara is infused with David's wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move readers to tears and laughter.
When Judith Summers's husband and father both died within the space of two weeks, she found herself floundering. Life for her and her eight-year-old son Joshua seemed relentlessly bleak. Then George bounced into their lives. A loving Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with film-star looks, George reawoke their joie de vivre. Yet Judith soon discovered that living with George had its drawbacks. He was a full-time job and as expensive to run as a Ferrari. Wilful and badly behaved, he refused to eat anything other than roast chicken, preferred travelling by car to walking, and became as jealous as a spurned lover if any man dared show an interest in her. And when a near-death tangle with a Staffordshire Bull terrier resulted in costly sessions with an animal psychologist, Judith found that it was she who was put on the couch . . .
