We have been encouraging our new product folks here at Dogwise to seek out even more new books that meet our criteria for carrying on our web site. You may not believe this, but we actually turn down about as many new books as we accept! Generally we want books that cover at least some new ground, are informative - or at least fun and entertaining - and that appeal to people who have more than just a casual interest in dogs. Luckily for all of us, this has been a good year for what we consider "good" dog books and so we have a whole bunch of new books that have arrived over the past few weeks. In no particular order these include:
What Vets Don't Tell Your About Vaccines by Catherine
O'Driscoll. The ground-breaking book on vaccination protocols,
available again in its second edition.
How to Raise a Jewish Dog by "The Rabbis of Boca Raton." We
mentioned this book a couple weeks ago, but had no idea how
popular it was going to be! Hilarious.
Dog Body, Dog Mind by Dr. Michael W. Fox. First book in many
years from one of the pioneers of modern dog behavior research.
The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker. Jean Donaldson recommended
this book to us. The book takes a look at the nature-nurture
debate (or what plays a more important role - genetics or
environment?). This book focuses on humans, but has applications
to domestic dogs as well.
The Dangerous Book for Dogs by "Rex and Sparky." A dog-related
parody of "The Dangerous Book for Boys."
The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz. Yes, Dean Koontz
fans, here is a novel featuring Golden Retrievers.
Essential Care in the Field: A Fitness Manual for Working Dogs
by Jackie Drakeford and Mark Elliott. From England, the care
requirements for working dogs in their various roles.
Bad Dogs Have More Fun by John Grogan. More good stuff from the
author of Marley and Me.
Pet Food Nation by Joan Weiskopf. Another guide to help you
choose food for your pet wisely.
Some of you are asking when the order deadline is for getting shipments delivered by Christmas. UPS is telling us that at this point in time they will not guarantee ground delivery will get to you by Christmas. However our experience is, whether we ship to you UPS or by the US Mail, that the vast majority of orders shipped via ground anywhere in the continental US will arrive to you if it leaves our warehouse no later than next Monday, the 17th of December (which means the order must be placed before 8:00am Pacific Time Monday morning). The farther away from Washington State you are, the longer it takes, so plan accordingly. The only way you can be 100% sure starting next week is to order expedited shipping (2nd day or next day air).
Thanks from all of us at Dogwise.
