Dog shows can be murder… When Molly Gibson, sensual romance writer but shyest and most insecure member of the Gumshoe Chicks, finds more than she bargained for in the Driscoll's dog trailer, the Chicks - Molly, Abi and Dana - swap show ring etiquette and grooming mitts for some deadly serious sleuthing. Their only clues are the blood splattered dog-grooming scissors found buried in a fellow competitor's chest. A husband blackmailing his wife. And a death threat written on a Betty Boop writing pad. As the Chicks continue to investigate, they discover several suspects at the dog show have something to hide. Was the dead man really a serial Don Juan, intent on taking every female show competitor over 30 to bed? Did the ostentatious poodle exhibitor lose his temper, decide to teach the victim a lesson, and go too far? Or was the female judge with the Gucci boots angry when the victim threatened to expose her infidelity? And who is that bad-boy biker with the sea-blue eyes and kissable lips? Molly, who has enough trouble resolving conflict in her fictional stories is freaked out at the prospect of confronting a real-life antihero. A villain who's killed not once, but twice, and if she doesn't apply her creative flair to unearthing the culprit, could easily kill again. Just when the Chicks think they know who the murderer is – Molly stumbles over another clue proving them all wrong. But with only a geriatric chihuahua and a hairless broom to work with, will she live to pass this message on to the others? If you like dogs, best friend relationships, humor and a touch of murder, you will love the second book in this new mystery series by June Whyte, author of the laugh-out-loud Kat McKinley Greyhound Mysteries and the delightfully down-to-earth Vets2U cozies.

Yes, humans and canines are different species, but current research provides fascinating, irrefutable evidence that what we share with our dogs is greater than how we vary. As behaviorist and zoologist Dr. Patricia McConnell tells us in this remarkable new book about emotions in dogs and in people, more and more scientists accept the premise that dogs have rich emotional lives, exhibiting a wide range of feelings including fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and love. In For the Love of a Dog, McConnell suggests that one of the reasons we love dogs so much is that they express emotions in ways similar to humans. After all, who can communicate joy better than a puppy? But not all emotional expressions are obvious, and McConnell teaches both beginning dog owners and experienced dog lovers how to read the more subtle expressions hidden behind fuzzy faces and floppy ears. For those of us who deeply cherish our dogs but are sometimes baffled by their behavior, For the Love of a Dog will come as a revelation–a treasure trove of useful facts, informed speculation, and intriguing accounts of man’s best friend at his worst and at his very best. Readers will discover how fear, anger, and happiness underlie the lives of both people and dogs and, most important, how understanding emotion in both species can improve the relationship between them. Thus McConnell introduces us to the possibility of a richer, more rewarding relationship with our dogs. While we may never be absolutely certain what our dogs are feeling, with the help of this riveting book we can understand more than we ever thought possible. Those who consider their dogs part of the family will find For the Love of a Dog engaging, enlightening, and utterly engrossing.

Dogs aren't exactly shy when it comes to expressing their feelings. They do everything we humans are afraid to: dogs are ecstatic and boisterous, tactless, openly enthusiastic, take delight in rolling in disgusting things, sleep when they're tired, and don't care if you snore. Dogs teach us that joy is a way of life and that it does not depend on what happens each day; they always assume something fabulous is going to happen today. This book shows dogs as they truly are--bursting with happiness, tired after a hard play session, chewing on a $300 running shoe, and locked in battle with a roll of toilet paper. It shows puppies so worn out by life's thrills that they fall asleep precisely where they were just standing on their wobbly little legs, and it shows dogs getting slower, older, and wiser, with a gaze that will break your heart. AUTHOR: Journalist Katharina von der Leyen is one of the most famous writers on dogs, with more than 13 books as well as countless columns, articles, and helpful advice pieces on living with them, in publications including 'Dogs' and 'Bild am Sonntag'. She writes regularly on her blog Lumpi4.de. SELLING POINTS: * With captions by Katharina von der Leyen, who can write about dogs as few other people can, with humour that pokes a bit of fun, but is full of love and understanding for both dogs and people * An homage to man's best friend--and not just for dog lovers 150 colour and b/w

More than a hauntingly beautiful memoir about small dogs in Big Sky country, this book is a wise account of the relationships among dogs, humans, and the land that surrounds them. It is the story of successive generations of Jack Russell terriers, their animal friends, and their human companions. Alston Chase searches for the immortality of dogs, what makes them unique companions, and why we humans willingly give them our hearts knowing that someday they will be broken. This book will resonate with anyone who has ever loved a dog. Chase muses that dogs are the embodiment of spirit over mortality and through the window of their brief lives we glimpse eternity. This eternal includes the Earth, the land, and the bonds forged between people and dogs over thousands of years. Chase sees threats in the decline of rural life, unbridled urbanization, and in dog breeders who judge by conformation to breed standards and fashion rather than ability and health. An uplifting tribute to the dogs we love, and a reflection on the limitations of life, this book shows a triumph of the spirit. Rich in poetic citations, it is an environmental cry for help, a naturalistic appreciation of a dissolving world, and a deeply spiritual reminder that nothing loved is ever lost.
