When Barkk Barks, Listen! What’s the Right Pet for You? is an amazing story. If you own a pet or are thinking about it, this book is for you. It begins with an amazing dog named Barkk who tells much of the story as all kinds of pets are investigated including dogs and cats, , birds, ferrets, guppies, sea horses, exotic pets, riding horses, reptiles and amphibians, raccoons, barn yard animals and some questionable pets. You’ll discover many kinds: dogs ranging from Airedale to Yorkshire Terriers, Bulldog, Chihuahua, Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Doberman Pincher, Poodle, Pug, St. Bernard and more. Plus cats: Angora, Burmese, Oriental, Persian, Russian Blue, Siamese, Siberian and Ragdoll among others. You’ll also be able to consider guppies, ferrets, horses, birds, amphibians, reptiles, exotic and hazardous options plus training and caring for your pet. Pets can become an important part of your life whether single or family, rich or poor, famous or otherwise. They can also be mean, noisy, nosey and pesky. So much depends on how they are raised and treated. They have been known to rescue the fallen, sniff out trouble, sound an alarm as well as bite, scratch, whine and beg. They can be snugglers or loners, friendly or aloof. And some of course are impersonal, anonymous and unassuming. Barkk is the story-teller in this book. He earned his name as well as the right to share his experience with you. He will give you some advice on finding just the right pet as well as tips on caring for your pet. Barkk is not just an ordinary dog as you will discover, nor does he have all the answers. Even if he did, this book couldn’t share all of them. The chapters are short and to the point. You will also be given suggestions where else to turn as there are many wonderful resources. Yet there are not enough that cover all kinds of pets, their care and grooming, their strengths and weaknesses, mannerisms and dispositions. Some pets are more human-like than other animals. They show emotions, respond to commands, can be affectionate and a delight to have around. Here the give-and-take is exceptional, and soon they can be integrated into the family and become loyal companions. On the other hand, there are pets that are not human-like and even though cherished do not respond as other pets do. They are often kept on exhibit, make their owners proud and fulfill quite a different although important role. A rare turtle or an exotic lizard may never become true companions although they can fulfill important functions as pets. There are those who would not regard these as pets, and technically they may be correct, but they can fall into the broad spectrum as a pet (a domesticated animal kept as a companion, indulged and cherished . . . . As When Barkk Barks, Listen! is welcomed into your lives, you will gain entry into the exciting home of the Dorchesters: Dez, Mandy, Val, Anne and Timmy. You will be intrigued as you hear from all of them and their experiences with a generous spectrum of the animal kingdom. They will help you find just the right pet, and if you already have one, you will learn a lot from them. The book is easy reading (Barkk is written for all ages) and the chapters have been deliberately kept brief. Discuss this book with your friends, neighbors, siblings, parents and grandparents . . . Agree and differ but above all, enjoy your pilgrimage into the fascinating world of The Realm of Pets.

What's the perfect dog for you? It depends on your lifestyle. Are you a couch potato or an athlete? A city slicker or a suburbanite? Do you suffer from allergies? Are you paranoid about security? With The Good, the Bad, and the Furry, author Sam Stall offers the inside poop on the world s most popular breeds and describes which ones are right for you. Stall has consulted with dozens of breed rescue groups to learn the best and worst perks, quirks, and personality traits of more than 100 different dogs. You'll learn that, contrary to what you see on Frasier, Jack Russell terriers make terrible apartment dogs (they have tremendous energy and need plenty of open space to burn it off). A much better choice for apartment dwellers is the Greyhound. (Sure, they can outrun virtually anything on four legs, but they're also content to spend all afternoon lounging on the couch.) Complete with more than 100 whimsical illustrations, The Good, the Bad, and the Furry make choosing the right dog a snap!

The Poodle is known for her keen intelligence, excellent trainability, and, most notably, those signature curly locks. But there’s more to the Poodle than meets the eye (like, say, those expensive grooming bills). So, to Poodle or not to Poodle? That is the question. With an overview of the breed’s history, an exploration of all three varieties (Standard, Miniature, and Toy), and 8 pages of full-color photos detailing the colors available and tips and techniques for grooming, Poodles for Dummies is filled with all the meaty information and enlightening morsels you need to decide if this refined beauty is a good match for you. You’ll get answers to your most important questions, including: Which size Poodle is best for me? Which color? How do I know if a Poodle breeder is reputable? What are the pros and cons of shelters and rescue groups? What do I look for in choosing a healthy Poodle? How can I Poodle-proof my home and yard? What’s the best way to introduce my Poodle to kids and other pets? How often does my Poodle need grooming? No matter which size, color, or gender you own, Poodles are not a “wash ‘n’ wear” breed. But if you have the time, passion, and dedication to give her the training, exercise, and upkeep she needs, you and your curly companion will have a happy and rewarding life together.
