Spring should be here any minute.
While I am waiting for that day to arrive, I have been burying myself in books to pass the time. Specifically, dog related books.
I thought I’d share what is currently sitting on my shelf. Some I have read, some have been sitting there waiting patiently ….. for a while.
If you are a book lover, you understand the growing list of books- you must buy- to put on your shelf -that you will never finish reading.
I once paid $20 for a 15 minute canine massage. I wasn’t sure what I was really expecting. A fluffy dog bed, spa music and treats to be fed while my furry love lays relaxing in blissful heaven.
It didn’t go down like that.
I am a firm believer in the therapeutic benefits of canine massage, so I picked this book for my shelf. Dr. Fox is a Veterinarian and former VP of the Humane Society. In this book he reviews 6 techniques so you can bond with Fido while administering massage techniques for health benefits.
I’ve skimmed this book, but have not read cover-to-cover.
I do that a lot.
Highly recommend if you want understand canine anatomy and massage technique.
This is my second favorite book on dog nutrition.
If dog nutrition is a concern for you, this is a great place to start. Not only does he break down nutrition basics, but reviews specific nutrients and how to add them to your dogs diet.
This is a great starter book if all the current news, blogs and article son dog nutrition overwhelm you.
This is the book that changed my life.
Well, technically my dogs life.
A few years ago, Skippie started to exhibit some health issues. I immediately starting looking at his diet, which none of my vets even suggested.
This book helped me understand what and how to change his diet.
A must read if you want to have a healthy dog or cat, regardless of what type of diet you feed.
I’ve never jumped on the Chicken Soup for the Soul train, until I saw this book.
Filled with heartwarming and short stories, this makes like a devotional. Some stories make me laugh, some make me cry.
And some I just keep reading over again.
This is in my To Be Read pile.
This book teaches us about the benefits of the human-animal bond and how we can give back to our animals.
This will make my Summer 2016 summer read list.
