The revised and expanded second edition of the best-selling The Original Dog Bible remains the most comprehensive dog lover’s resource on the market: 830 pages and over 500 color photographs cover every topic under the canine sun! The book is divided into eight parts, each fully illustrated and designed for easy reference, plus helpful, entertaining sidebars covering hundreds of related topics. Section I: “The Dog in Our World” starts with the domestication of dog and the development of breeds, explores the dog’s place in world religion, folklore, and popular culture, and analyzes how the dog fits into our society in terms of rescue, animal welfare, legal matters, and ethical and social issues. Section II: “A New Dog” is a new owner’s primer to deciding upon the right dog, whether purebred or mixed breed, the requirements of keeping and caring for a dog, and various considerations before choosing a dog (children, size, energy, etc.). Individual chapters on finding a dog (from breeders, shelters, and rescue programs), preparing for the homecoming (puppy-proofing, supplies, safety), and bringing the dog home. Section III: “Life with a Dog” discusses pet-care partners (from doggy day care to boarding kennels to pet sitters), emergencies, lost-dog protocol, traveling with a dog, senior years, and activities with a dog. The expansive activities chapter covers agility, flyball, sledding, weigh pulling, canine freestyle, lure coursing, herding, field trials, dock diving, Schutzhund, tracking, showing, therapy, obedience trials, and more. Section IV: “Breeds” is the largest section in the book, providing an alphabetical catalog of over 250 purebred dogs, from Affenpinscher to Yorkshire Terrier, including all of the most popular breeds in the world as well as many little known breed. Each breed is represented by a full-color photograph and an article detailing alternative names, country of origin, kennel club group, history of breed’s development, physical description, height/weight, temperament, activity level, health concerns—all information necessary for owners to determine which breed would make the best companion for their life style and family. Section V: “Health” extends over 100 pages and covers establishing a veterinary regimen for a dog; infectious diseases and vaccinations; canine anatomy and bodily systems; reproduction and breeding; chronic disease and conditions; and diagnostic tests and techniques. Section VI: “Daily Care” provides owners with fundamental information about grooming dogs, including breed-specific needs, history of grooming, and home grooming requirements. A chapter titled “The Complete Guide to Feeding Your Dog” addresses essential canine nutrition, including selection of the right food, safety, special needs, supplemental, obesity, and owner precautions. Section VII: “Training and Behavior” could be a complete book unto itself, discussing canine communication, the importance of socialization, puppy training, house-training, specific kinds of training methods, equipment, adult-dog methods, and trick training. A chapter on solving behavioral problems covers difficulties owners might encounter with their pets, from barking and separation anxiety to aggression, eating, housetraining, and health-related problems. Section VIII: “Dogs and Work” includes a chapter about dogs who work and a chapter about people who work with dogs. The text discusses the many jobs dogs do in our society, from ancient roles like herding, guarding, and military work to more contemporary jobs like search and rescue, film acting, and detection work. The careers chapter catalogs jobs caring for dogs (veterinary-related, groomers, day-care), protection and advocacy jobs (humane societies, animal control), and training and handling jobs (obedience, behaviorist, working dog handlers). The book concludes with an extensive glossary, a 50-page resource section of books, websites, and magazines, and a complete index.

Following in the paw- and hoof-prints of I-5’s best-selling The Original Dog Bible and The Original Horse Bible comes The Original Cat Bible, the ultimate resource for cat owners and lovers from the editors of Cat Fancy magazine. This new 500-page volume promises to be the most complete and authoritative book of its kind, authored by award-winning writer Sandy Robins with special veterinary chapters by Dr. Arnold Plotnick and an extensive breed section by Sarah Hartwell and Lorraine Shelton. The Original Cat Bible delves deeply into all things feline, from the domestication of cats and the development of pure breeds to the anatomy and genetics of felines. Between its two covers, it bequeaths a wealth of information to the cat fanciers, detailing all aspects of cat care and ownership, bejeweled with fun tidbits and trivia to entertain even the most discerning of feline lovers. The book begins with a detailed history of the modern cat, including the noble big cats of the wild and the small domesticated cats adored indoors by millions around the world. In her venture into the modern-day world of cats, the author discusses the genesis of cat welfare and rescue, as well as concerns about stray and feral cats in our communities, explaining the problems and offering practical solutions. From a more universal perspective, the text explores the feline’s place in world religions, the cat-laden folklore of Asia, Europe and North America, cats in religion, popular culture through the ages (literature, art, cartoons, and movies), and contemporary social media (YouTube, blogs, and Facebook). The Original Cat Bible discusses the development of cat breeds and the genetics of purebred cats. While the establishment of purebred cats is a fairly modern development, some breeds have existed in a “pure form” for many centuries. In order to explain the significance of specific breeds, the author describes the essential physical characteristics of the cat, including body types, coat types, colors, and patterns. Guest authors Hartwell and Shelton, both highly regarded experts in the purebred cat world, present seventy-five breeds of cat from the familiar Siamese and Persian to the lesser known Australian Mist and Pixie Bob, describing their origins, breed standards, personalities, all accompanied by dazzling color photography. The book features expansive coverage of every recognized cat breed in the world, plus many experimental and new breeds that have come and gone. Robins resumes the discussion of cat ownership, covering important topics such as finding a kitten, choosing between breeders and shelters, achieving the right feline match for your family, bringing the cat into a new home, cat-proofing and safety around the house, and shopping for supplies for the new cat (accessories ranging from litter boxes and beds to harnesses and cat trees). New owners will value the information about introducing the cat to family and other pets, the importance of selecting a qualified veterinarian, securing veterinary insurance, and establishing an immunization schedule with your vet. Information about kitten health concerns, including viral diseases and parasites, and complementary therapies and holistic medicine, diagnostic tests and new technologies available is thorough and detailed. A user-friendly, very readable chapter on grooming follows, offering advice on caring for the coats of kittens, adults and older cats, purchasing grooming tools, learning techniques, and establishing a regimen for brushing and bathing, nail, eye, ear and teeth care. The feeding chapter begins with a fascinating and entertaining history of pet food in America and then goes on to discuss such important topics as the nutritional requirements of cats at all life stages, the choice between commercial diets and natural foods, food allergies, and special care of obese and pregnant cats. In introducing the elaborate section on healthcare, renowned veterinarian Dr. Arnold Plotnick presents an overview of feline anatomy, including the basics of the body, skin, coat, ears, eyes, teeth, paws, and bodily systems. The chapter on external conditions, diseases and disorder covers over eighty specific feline diseases (categorized by anatomical region), followed by a chapters on infectious diseases and internal and external parasites; reproductive care, puberty, mating, and pregnancy; and serious life-threatening disorders (diabetes, cancer, and hyperthyroidism). A chapter on senior cats offers readers information on health issues with older cats (arthritis, cognitive dysfunction, vision and hearing loss), common behavior issues, as well grief counseling upon the loss of a beloved cat. A section on fun with cats includes the various activities and enrichment exercises owners can do with their cats, as well as cat agility and cat shows (covering both major American cat registries, the Cat Fanciers Association and The International Cat Association). Further topics in this expansive volume include traveling with cats, pet-care options for owners (kitty day care, pet sitters, and boarding), dealing with emergencies, first aid, and disaster planning, finding a lost cat, relocating with cats and preventing loss during a move. The Original Cat Bible offers the gospel on cat behavior and training, and preaches that cats can indeed be trained! The author offers a compendium on feline communication, including body language and vocalizations, and a training course that advocates socialization and positive-reinforcement training (remote control training, redirection, and clicker training). In addressing problem behaviors, the author puts forward solutions for dozens of commonly encountered nuisances, such as litter box messes, scratching, aggression, separation anxiety and pica. The final section of the book celebrates cats at work in the community, from therapy cats in nursing homes and rest-home facilities to cats working as greeters and library and book-store assistants. Readers will delight in the section about celebrity cats. Cats have made a splash working professionally as actors and models in the entertainment worlds of movies, television, and advertising. For readers wishing to work with cats themselves, the book discusses a variety of career paths as veterinarians, vet assistants, groomers, trainers and behaviorists, massage therapists, cat sitters, animal-control officers, and photographers. The book has an expansive resource section including websites, books, and periodicals, and is fully indexed.

Creative Bible Lessons in Genesis follows the work previously done with other studies in the series. What makes this volume different is that it is sensitive to the influence of postmodernism on today’s culture and values, it complements the widespread use of multimedia, and is experiential in approach. With a desire to be relevant, it does not scan Scripture, but intends to be scripturally thorough and accurate, with an understanding that the power of the studies is ultimately found in the biblical text. Because much of what is understood to be "truth" today is arrived to by subjective interpretation, there is a strong but subtle element in the studies that highlights the Imago Dei (image of God) in man. The blueprint of the Trinitarian God in man is, perhaps, the sturdiest bridge between postmodern "experiencisms" and ultimate truth and reality. In order to emphasize these elements, Bible studies include projection games, helps, and visuals. Also, many of the studies are highlighted by a participation which attempts to be close to the text account. There are small group and large group elements that have been developed with the technologically savvy student in mind.Creative Bible Lessons in Genesis follows the lives of various individuals in Genesis. In a world where communication is less face-to-face and more screen to screen, family breakdowns are the norm rather than the exception, and role models often communicate debatable values, an anchor for life can only be found in the God, who does not change. Human nature can only be satisfactorily understood through the image of God in man, and that all behavior, desires, and actions people take are ultimate acts of worship, and desire for God. The return to the Imago Dei in man is the clearest way to present absolute truth to a relative society in that it is able to posit a valid argument for God and faith from an intellectual and logic platform, as well as from a subjective/emotional/experiential platform.
