Caring for Your Dog: The Essential Guide
I’m getting very excited. On Friday I received a copy of the press release for my new book, Caring for Your Dog: The Essential Guide. It will be published by Need2Know on
December the 1st 2010.
I decided to write the book for two reasons – firstly as a tribute to my beautiful, brave dog Vic, who suffered from epilepsy from the age of 4-years-old and sadly crossed the
last year at the age of 13 and a half. He enjoyed life right up until the end and I miss him greatly. Caring for Your Dog has a chapter on caring for special needs dogs like Vic. Sadly too many people have dogs put down because they see a dog who has special needs as a burden. That does not have to happen. Rainbow Bridge
The other reason was I wanted people to realise that instead of buying a dog, something that adds to the problem of too many dogs needing homes, they could welcome a rescue dog into their home. There are so many dogs needing homes. Vic was once one of them. Now my partner and I have Benjy, whom we got from the Dogs trust in
. My book has a chapter dedicated to the ins and outs of adopting a dog. Glasgow

I’d better go now as he wants to chase him around the room with a bone!
