BETTY WHITE on EVERY DOG HAS A GIFT: "This book gives us some specific examples of the unique therapy that dogs provide when it is needed most. Enjoy a good read, after which I’m sure you will appreciate your own dog even more.” Inspiring stories of dogs who do good. Anyone who has ever had a relationship with a dog will tell you: They want nothing more than to give love and be loved in return. In Every Dog Has a Gift, Rachel McPherson draws on her experience as the founder and executive director of The Good Dog Foundation, the largest animal-assisted therapy organization on the East Coast, to share the amazing stories of dogs that bring hope and healing into our lives. Much has been said about the heroic roles dogs played following September 11th and Hurricane Katrina in providing support and comfort for the families and victims of these terrible tragedies, but the truth is that millions of dogs around the world are heroes every day. These therapy and service dogs (and often quite ordinary, "uncertified" dogs just like your own!) can: *serve as the perfect audience for kids who need help with practicing and improving their reading skills; *hold troubled families together; *provide a calm and centering presence for autistic children, and *help individuals who have lost the ability to walk to more easily navigate the world. Every Dog Has a Gift is a celebration of the gift that each and every dog possesses: the ability to bring the healing power of unconditional love into our lives.

Why has Fido become a generic term for all dogs? Why did hundreds of people collect dog faeces – and sell it?Dogs never eat other dogs, so why is it a dog-eat-dog world? Did any dogs survive the 'Titanic'?What is a Yorkipoo?Do mad dogs really go out in the midday sun? 'Every Dog Has Its Day' pays homage to man’s best friend, telling the stories of famous dogs in history, tracing the origins of some of our favourite breeds, showing how dogs have become a significant part of our language, and describing the amazing range of activities in which dogs are involved. Written with Max Cryer’s characteristic light touch and sense of humour, this is a fascinating – and sometimes surprising – collection of historical facts and eccentricities of language. It will delight all dog-lovers and anyone with a morsel of interest in the world around them.

First published in 1983, "Every Dog" now appears in a fully revised and expanded edition. Written for ordinary dog owners, it covers every aspect of the care and health of dogs of all breeds. Two experienced veterinarians and authors have written this authoritative and detailed guide, which covers a dog's life from puppyhood to old age. It describes all canine diseases and conditions, symptoms, prevention and treatment. It tells dog owners how to care for illnesses and injuries at home and when to call for a vet. Warning symptoms in the margin denote specific characteristics and warnings related to particular diseases. The book helps people selecting and caring for their first dogs. Buyers and breeders are given charts and notations of inherited disorders and traits to help them as they choose their dogs. One major new feature of the Third Edition is a separate chapter covering holistic and natural medicine for dogs, including acupuncture, natural medicine, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, homeopathy, flower essences, tissue salts, chiropractic massage and grooming. The chapter on old age and death is now supplemented by a section on death and coping with the grief that can follow the death of a loved animal. "Every Dog" -- now more informative than ever -- is an indispensable part of every dog owner's library.

"...purebred or mixed, with this book any dog can become a Canine Good Citizen.... The Volhards'...approach to training, which they call the Motivational Method,...is designed to do just that motivate the owner and the dog. The Motivational Method is grounded on a thorough knowledge of how people learn and dog behavior. Since 1983 they have authored or co-authored four major books on dog training and teaching dog Obedience classes, and have produced four video tapes. I am...pleased that they have written this book on the Canine Good Citizen. I cannot think of anyone else who could have done a better job. This book contains everything the reader needs to know about training any dog to become a Canine Good Citizen. Still, there is much more the book shares a wealth of insights for the beginner, as well as the experienced dog person. The book's best feature is that it gives each person the means to tailor the training to the individual dog's character and temperament. It thoroughly explains what makes dogs different and how these differences dictate the approach to training that needs to be taken." James E. Dearinger, AKC Vice President, Obedience The American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen program was developed to promote responsible dog ownership in a manner that would be easy for both dog and owner. Any book that promotes and encourages dog owners to participate is doing a public service, and this book does it well. "This book is aptly named. Yes, every dog, both pure-bred dogs and mixed breeds, can be a good citizen if their owners care enough to make it happen. The key is to encourage dog owners everywhere to be responsible enough to make their dogs a pleasure to be around and able to handle most situations that they might be expected to encounter in everyday life."

How We Can Save 5,000,000 Lives a Year Here is the first comprehensive review of a survival issue that touches the lives of a majority of Americans -- but hasn´t yet won as much of our active concern as it deserves. Nearly six out of ten U.S. households own at least one dog or cat. As the new century began, over l30,000,000 pets were sharing our lives. Yet every year an estimated 5,000,000 shelter orphans -- healthy, lovable young animals who would make happy and devoted pets -- are doomed to premature death simply for want of sufficient homes. What can all of us who keep and care about companion animals do to save the lives of those "surplus" dogs, cats, puppies and kittens? A great deal. But until now there´s been no single, accessible source to enlighten America´s pet-owning public on the many large and small ways we can help. This informal and inclusive guide, written by a fellow pet owner with no institutional affiliation, focuses on three prime areas in which thoughtful dog and cat lovers can make a dramatic difference: how we acquire our pets; how scrupulously we manage their birth control; and -- perhaps most important today -- how committed we are to keeping them with us for life. The American Humane Association, in reviewing THE PET SURPLUS on its Web site, said: "If you ever wondered what you could do to help animals, this book provides a clear and concise path towards making a difference. Seidman does a remarkable job of capturing the essence of humane work and offers simple solutions that pet owners -- or potential pet owners -- can follow to help alleviate the pet population problem in this country. The book also summarizes many key humane issues and may serve as a refresher for those working in the humane field. If books like this could be gotten into the right hands...more strides could be made to make the world a better place for our domestic companions." A review in the Winter 2002 issue of the ASPCA´s magazine, ANIMAL WATCH, said: "As well-researched and readable a text as you could hope to find on this subject, PET SURPLUS is also full of surprises. If there´s new stuff here for savvy dog and cat people -- and there is -- imagine how useful it will be for that friend or neighbor you´d love to enlighten. Better get two copies." A review in SPAY/USA´s Autumn 2001 newsletter by the organization´s director, Esther Mechler, said: "If they are willing to read, you can save your breath and give them Susan Seidman´s new book THE PET SURPLUS. Full of interesting information..." A review in the March-April 2002 issue of ANIMAL SHELTERING, the magazine for shelter professionals published by The Humane Society of the United States, said: "An excellent publication for the general public. Encouraging private citizens to become effective armchair activists for the sake of their own pets and the animals in shelters, the book will be an eye-opener." A review in the October 2002 issue of ANIMAL PEOPLE said: "Public policy could be based on her numbers. Her writing style is lucid, her experiences as a petkeeper for about 50 years both typical and revealing. Timing may be on her side. More of the public than ever before may at last be ready to sit down and read an entire book about pet overpopulation." Table of Contents: FOREWORD. Why and for whom this book was written. Chapter 1: SUPPLY AND DEMAND. The Sunny Side of the Picture. The Shadow Population. A Short History. Progress to Date: A Partial Solution. Where Do We Go from Here? Chapter 2: ACQUISITION.
