Ho! Ho! Ho! Woof! Woof! Woof!

While shopping for my dog loving friends, I stumbled upon two FANTASTIC books that I want
to bring to your attention.

First, at perfect stocking stuffer size, is "Christmas Is Good" by Trixie Koontz, who is
author Dean Koontz's dog, a retired service dog. It is hilarious--I"m talking rib
aching, tears in the eyes, can't breathe because you are laughing too hard hilarious. It
even contains a recipe, from Three Dog Bakery (which is a fabulous shop. There was one
in Cherry Creek North, but I haven't looked to see if it's still there.), for Peanut
Butter dog treats. The best part is that Trixie is donating all of her royalties from
this book to Canine Companions for Independence, the organization who originally raised
and trained her.

The other fab find is a trade paperback copy of "Bad To The Bone: Memoir of a Rebel
Doggie Blogger", by Bo Hoefinger of's "For The Love of Dog" blog. Reading it
a bit on the bus on the way home today tells me that I'm going to have to get my own copy
because it's absolutely irresistible!

Happy Barking Holidays!!!!

Hi..this is Bo (woof!) author of BAD TO THE BONE: Memoir Of A Rebel Doggie Blogger. Thanks for barking about my book, so glad you're enjoying it. It's the first memoir written by a dog ever published in non-fiction, not bad for a writer in a fur suit. It's 100% funny, 100% true. The book is dedicated to rescue and shelter workers and a portion of the proceeds is donated to help homeless dogs. Maybe Joyce Meskis will give me a woofout on The Huffington Post, I'll send snausages. I do interviews, with a little help from my administrative assistant, Horst. Woof!
