October is…

Book month and adopt-a-dog month.

To celebrate we’re giving away three books donated by Hachette Book Group.

  • How to be Your Dog’s Best Friend by the Monks of New Skete. One of the classic books on dog training and one I’ve recommended to many people. I agreed to do the give-away specifically because Hachette included this book in the group.
  • Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt. Rosenfelt writes dog-themed legal-thrillers. I read very little fiction these days, so can’t offer any advice on this one. If you win the drawing and send a review, I’ll be glad to post it. 
  • GoD and DoG by Wendy Francisco. I’m not a religious person, haven’t read the book and am not likely to – but the youtube video that inspired it recently generated a lot among my friends in the English Shepherd world so I thought it was appropriate to include it here.

If you’d like to enter the drawing leave a comment below. Make sure you include your real email address as that is how I’ll contact the winner. The winner will be chosen by a drawing to be conducted by the OddMan. Entries close Wednesday October 27, 2010.

The books will be sent to the winner directly by Hachette Book Group. I am receiving nothing  (other than a wee bit of blog-fodder) for posting this.


Entry filed under: books, dogs.

Have you evolved? Beautiful and yet…

    My copy of the Monks dates from the seventies. Still holds up, but would love to acquire a current edition.

    Of course, I’d still have to confront the fact that I have not enough time to read much. Nor enough time to write as much as I’d like. Nor get sufficient sleep. Nor cook like I used to. Nor ride my horse.

    Damn those kids, cute as they are. They just don’t raise themselves.

    I was very touched by the “GoD and DoG” video so count me in for the drawing!

    Please enter me in the drawing.

    And thank you again, Janeen for having volunteered a year ago to help little Charlie to recover and to live as a normal, happy dog. I think of him often and am grateful you were/are there for him.

    God and Dog goes to any dog lovers heart, not that the others aren’t great books, but this one is exceptionally meaningful. What a wonderful idea!

    Love books! Shelby, Gracie, Louie, and Mama Faith think I need more book learning-

    I have watched some of the monks’ videos, and I see them as good, middle-of-the-road trainers. Did pick up the trick of pointing at my eye and saying “Watch me!” from them, but with my food-obsessed Chessie, holding a dog biscuit next to my eye works better.

    I would also like to enter. I don’t own any of the books although I have read the Monks back when it came out.

    Please include me in the drawing. Thanks!

  • 17. Dani  |  October 25, 2010 at 8:55 am

    Please include me in the drawing. I have read the Monks book from the library, but I would love to own a copy. The other two books just sound fun! Thanks!

  • 18. Liz  |  October 25, 2010 at 11:08 am

    I’d like to enter, thanks!
