Things look like they just might be settling down for Worzel.

With his sense of adventure matched only by his speed, ponds, pheasants, and a bitch at the end of the lane, are all far, far more interesting than Mum. Worzel has reached the 'terribibble teenage twos' - that time in every dog's life when their owners wonder if the work, patience and dedication spent in the early days was pointless ...and why everything their dog previously understood has suddenly become, at best, optional, but, more often, ignored!

They are the filters who sift through a flood of words to hear our hearts. They are the hot soup on cold nights, and the songbirds on a spring morning. Friends are the spices and poppies and sapphires in our lives. They are the music, the sunrises, the lattes. These things, and so much more, aren't the necessities of survival. This is the stuff of joy - and that's what friends are for.
Living with three strong-willed, highly individual Dachshunds can be equal parts entertaining, frustrating and rewarding. Just ask Matt Ziselman. Armed with a fresh, creative voice that is unabashedly cranky one moment and profoundly poignant the next, Ziselman mixes hilarious canine stories, with heartfelt reminiscences from his own life, the results of which is a memoir of illuminating life lessons, courtesy of the three thoroughly Teutonic Dachshunds that he shares his life (and couch) with: Baxter, Maya and Molly. Seemingly mundane moments, like Baxter's incessant, neuroses inducing staring, Maya's inexplicable refusal to walk through the front door and Molly's obsessive compulsive love for a torn and tattered blanket become, through Ziselman's insightful eyes, a treasure trove of observations that any dog-lover will appreciate. In a market where Americans spend more than $40 billion a year on their pets, this work of razor-sharp wit and quiet tenderness will reach out and grab readers everywhere by the heartstrings and-quite possibly-their leashes. HOUNDED wraps universal insights in hot-dog-shaped packages, providing true dog lovers with many knowing nods, honest belly laughs and an accurate, warts-and-all reflection of the fascination, wonder and love that they have for their dogs. And that Matt Ziselman obviously has for his.
"Tara, the terrier who sailed around the world" is the exciting and touching story of a Jack Russell who had at least nine lives - and many more adventures - with her owners, Rosemary and Robert Forrester, as they sailed around the world on a yacht.The story begins when Robert flies from Columbia to Florida to buy some essential boat parts, and returns with a six-week-old puppy. Rosemary is both delighted and anxious: how will a dog as lively as a Jack Russell adapt to living at sea? This tiny dog has to learn how to keep her balance on a boat which is tilting sideways one minute, then crashing down on a wave the next; how to find a way to play ball without being washed into the ocean; how to learn to eat fish instead of meat; how to swim in the sea and get back on the boat; how to see-off all potential intruders, including marauding seagulls and customs officials. Above all, Tara has to learn how to survive when she is washed overboard - not once, but twice. Rosemary recounts their incredible adventures as they sail from the Panama Canal to Australia, and on to Malaysia and Thailand, where they survive the Boxing Day Tsunami.Finally, their journey takes them through the Indian Ocean to Mozambique, where Tara ends her days. For animal lovers everywhere - especially those who like travel and sailing boats - this is an emotional and uniquely entertaining tale.
Every year millions of puppies enter homes, carrying their new family's expectation of a wonderful relationship. Sadly, many are rehomed or lose their lives as the result of behaviours which their owners find difficult to live with. Helping a puppy to grow into a resilient dog, capable of coping with the challenges of daily living, whilst retaining a good quality of life and exhibiting behaviours acceptable within society, is not an easy task. 'Life Skills for Puppies' aims to simplify puppy education by presenting the skills that are required to achieve these goals within the context of everyday life. By enabling owners to incorporate teaching into each interaction they enjoy with their puppy, it not only becomes easier for them, but also enables the puppy to practice appropriate behaviour choices within day-to-day situations. By teaching skills such as self-control, respect for rules, and clear communication, owners can spend less time directing their dog, and more time enjoying their relationship with him, as he takes more control for his own good behaviour. Beautiful, specially-taken photographs illustrate the points made, and each chapter includes a worksheet to help owners chart their puppy's progress.

Have you ever wondered why dogs are considered, 'man's best friend?' In this book, Psychologist Dr Christopher Blazina explains the importance of the unique bond between men and dogs. There are widely-held beliefs that males naturally transition into a state of self-imposed seclusion and emotional detachment in adulthood. Even relying on another person violates the rules of being a man. "When Man Meets Dog" explores how the bond with animal companions bypasses many of these barriers, helping males develop into happier, healthier men. What a difference a dog can make!It's also important to discuss the other side of attachment: loss. Again, the mixed messages men receive lead to difficulties with managing grief. "When Man Meets Dog" is the first book to discuss men's 'continuing bonds' with a lost animal companion. A continuing bond is a new way of reconnecting and preserving the memory of this unique connection."When Man Meets Dog" is a memoir with a purpose. Chris shares his very personal story of how two shelter dogs not only changed the direction of his life, but also how he defines what it means to be a man.
