Tip 1: "On days out at the beach, always be the first in the family to get out of the car, on to the beach, and into the water. Always be the last in the family to get out of the water, on to the beach, and into the car. Remember to shake excess sea water from your fur once you're inside the car." Tip 2: "Humans may refrain from passing you food to test. To them, a piece of salmon, followed by liquorice, a chocolate cake, and a selection of vegetables is a foul combination. Humans believe meals should be categorized into three courses: a starter, a main course, a dessert. Disavow them of this. Food is food is food." Tip 3: "Always make sure you have more energy at the end of the walk than you did at the beginning. Believe me, humans love the futility of taking you for a walk to tire you out." A canny little manual for canines everywhere.

A Dog's Life (Paperback): Martin Clunes A Dog's Life (Paperback)

Martin Clunes is happy to admit that with Mary, it was love at first sight; her soft, brown eyes, her perfect figure and that unstoppable wagging tail. As cocker spaniels go, she was perfect. Mary was soon joined in the Clunes' household by Tina, another cocker, and Arthur, a black Labrador. Reminiscent of "Marley & Me," the dynamics between the three dogs makes hilarious reading--puppy classes, Scrufts, and the competition for top dog status (and even Martin has to fight for this), which leads to visits from a dog psychologist. His passion for dogs inspired Martin to embark on a journey of discovery about their ancestors, both wild--the painted dogs of Tanzania--and extremely tame--the members of the Beverley Hills Mutt Club. With his trademark warmth and humor, Martin describes meeting a worldwide cast of doggie characters, and how humans have shaped the dog world as we know it today. One thing is certain--he will never see Mary, Tina, and Arthur in quite the same way again.

This collection of more than thirty contemporary, true, feel-good stories spotlights the beauty of being rescued--dogs rescued by people, people rescued by dogs, and even dogs who rescue other animals. It's the perfect companion--well, besides the four-legged, tail-wagging kind--for your morning cup of coffee or an evening curled up on the couch.

After the death of her mother and the end of a post-divorce relationship leave her heartbroken, novelist Amanda Brookfield finds her once secure world imploding. As despair closes in, she talks of getting a puppy to revive her optimistic spirit.

Amanda is advised that her lifestyle will not suit becoming a dog-owner but she can't resist Mabel, a beautiful golden doodle puppy. Arming herself with an arsenal of equipment, Amanda learns that there are no short-cuts to training and caring for a dog. Through battling daily challenges and constantly regrouping, Amanda realises she is starting to come to terms with her bereavement and the prospect of facing the rest of her life alone.

For the Love of a Dog tells the bigger, more poignant story about the labour of emotional recovery after the trauma of loss. Mabel shines like a light throughout, the unwitting architect of rebuilding self-belief. Mabel's own journey is equally captivating: as she blossoms into a mischievous, endearing head-turner of a companion – as affectionate as she is glorious.
