Pure Joy: The Dogs We Love

$4.99
More Info
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In this moving memoir, Danielle Steel tells the story of how she met a dog the size of a mouse with a personality that could light up an entire room. From Minnie's arrival at home in San Francisco to clothes-shopping jaunts in Paris, her adventures provide the perfect backdrop for a heartfelt look at the magic that dogs bring to our lives, and how they become part of the family, making indelible memories.

We meet Steel's childhood pug, James; and Elmer, the basset hound who was steadfastly at her side in her struggling days as a young writer; Sweet Pea--unveiled in a Tiffany box for a dog-loving husband--and all those lucky dogs who shared a household of nine children, other canines, and one potbellied pig. As she reflects on the beloved pets who have brought joy, and sometimes chaos, to her home through the years, Steel also shares her thoughts on the trials and tribulations of bringing a new dog into a household, the challenges of housebreaking and compatibility, the losses we feel forever.

Filled with colorful characters (human and otherwise), delightful photographs, practical wisdom drawn from long experience, and brimming with warmth and insight on every page, Pure Joy is a love letter to this special relationship--and one of the most charming books yet from the incomparable Danielle Steel.

Praise for Pure Joy

"The mega-selling [Danielle Steel] shares happy memories of her numerous dogs. . . . Steel brings readers into her life, recounting delightful moments with her many dogs, the dogs her children have owned, and her newest friend, Minnie, her tiny Chihuahua. . . . Plainly told with honesty and affection, these stories are an affirmation of the timeless connection between humans and their canine companions."--Kirkus Reviews

"Steel doesn't just love to write blockbusters; she loves dogs. Here's her valentine to all the dogs she's raised (looking to be mostly of the small sort), with lots of black-and-white photos throughout. A heady commercial combo."--Library Journal

Raising Rover; Breed-By-Breed Training from Afghans to Yorkies (USED)

$4.99
More Info
When it comes to understanding and training a dog, we all need a little help. This first-rate revolutionary guidebook will tell you everything you need to know, even about the specific breed of dog you own.

Raising Rover takes a dog owner through the dog's life, with all of the "how, why, when, where" questions answered. Halliburton's instructions work because she takes into account each particular breed. The best way to housetrain a puppy is as an individual. Too often dogs are lumped into the "A dog is a dog is a dog" category, while what the dog is truly about is never allowed to shine. As any dog owner will soon realize, adopting a Golden Retriever is profoundly different from choosing a Pekinese. These two breeds don't housetrain by the same method, they don't enjoy the same games, they look at learning differently, and their personalities are different -- right down to the basics.

Humorous and packed with information, this gem of a dog training book has all the hallmarks of an instant classic.
