Feed Your Pet Right

We, as humans and consumers, may look at food labels before we buy a product. Maybe if it's too high in sugar or sodium or fat we won't buy it. If you have a pet, have you ever read the labels on pet food? You might be surprised. This book, Feed Your Pet Right, is by a human nutritionist, Dr. Marion Nestle, and an animal nutrition expert, Dr. Maldon Neheim. The authors take a fascinating look at the science behind pet food and guides pet owners to make informed decisions to provide a healthy, balanced diet for their pets.

A Big Little Life

Novelist Dean Koontz thought he achieved contentment in his life; happily married to his high-school sweetheart and a very successful writing career with more than 20 New York Times bestsellers so far. Then along came Trixie, a retired service dog from the Canine Companions for Independence. Koontz, who often features dogs in his books, never had owned one. In his memoir, A Big Little Life, he tells the story of falling in love at middle age with lovable Golden Retriever.

Fun Holiday Alert

Did you know that Friday, June 26, is the 10th Annual Take Your Dog to Work Day? This holiday is all about celebrating man's best friend and encouraging folks to look into pet adoption. Even if you don't have a dog and can't get one anytime soon, why not celebrate the day with a fun dog story? My favorites are John Grogan's Marley books. He's written everything from children's easy readers to memoirs for adults, so there's something for the whole family!
