Many of you, like most of the staff here at Dogwise, are in the unfamiliar situation of working from home or, sadly, at home but not working. Its pretty hard to ignore what is going on in the world with 24/7 coverage of events on TV and online. What may work is to turn off the world for a bit and do some fun or interesting reading - but being a dog enthusiast of course - it is probably will work better is the subject is something you really enjoy.
A Borrowing of Bones by Paula Munier. It has been a long time since we have carried a dog oriented mystery, but this new mystery won the "book of the year" award at the Dog Writer's Association and we think you will enjoy. Features a bomb-sniffing Malinois named Elvis and any of you who do tracking or scent work should find the book entertaining.
Frankly we don't have a lot of "escapist books" books to offer you, but we do have very absorbing reads that you may enjoy without taxing your brain! Here are some ideas:
From Hoofbeats to Dogsteps. Rachel Paige Elliott's memoir is a fun read. Learn how a horse crazy young woman became a pioneer in canine gait research and one of the founders of the modern day Golden Retriever breed.
Bones Would Rain From the Sky by Suzanne Clothier. One of the best loved books we sell, a real classic!
Plenty in Life is Free by Kathy Sdao. Another one of our best loved books, part memoir, part training book.
Tales of Two Species by Patricia McConnell. Everyone knows about her best selling books, but Tales is a series of stand alone essays on loving and living with dogs.
Between Dog and Wolf by Jessica Addams and Andrew Miller. This book is fascinating to read but despite the title it is not focused on wolf hybrids. Instead it is an in-depth comparative study comparing and contrasting modern pet dogs and wolves and how you can determine what you are looking at when you see a 'dog 'that you are not sure about.
