Great Gift Idea!

A few months ago, I was contacted by a publishing house to review a couple of new books that they had coming out by the end of the year. I'm excited to say that I received them, and they are so great!

Here are some descriptions from

"In Dog Lover's Daily Companion Wendy Nan Rees shares her invaluable knowledge gleaned from 25+ years in the pet industry. She has created a unique, irreplaceable, easy-to-use—and inspiring—handbook filled with 365 helpful tips, easy-to-build projects, practical advice, and insight into the canine-human relationship for all dog owners to use every day of the year. This book will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of practical tips for living with your dog, no matter the breed. Wendy brings her expertise—and genuine love for dogs—to every topic under the sun needed to raise a healthy puppy into a happy adult dog."

"Cat Lover’s Devotional is a unique, easy-to-use, and inspiring handbook filled with a year’s worth of insight, helpful tips, and practical advice into the feline-human relationship for all cat lovers and owners. Whether you’re a cat owner yourself or someone who just loves all things cat, this book will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of ways to enjoy and appreciate cats, whether or not you have a house full of cats, or just a shelf full of books. The format of the book—a year-long, day-minder-type book—is not meant to be read cover to cover; rather, the book can fall open on any given day and still serve its designated purpose. Cat Lover’s Devotional will be completely indexed so readers in search of specific content, not just dabbling, will be able to navigate it."

The pictures are beautiful, and the text is easy-to-read. A great daily dose of dog and cat info for the pet-lovers in your life.

I'd like to offer these books to someone as a special holiday gift. To enter the drawing, just post a comment on this post, saying if you would like the DOG LOVER'S book or the CAT LOVER'S book. I'll put the comments into a drawing, which I will draw on December 11th! Feel free to share this drawing with friends--if you post on your blog and let me know, I'll put another entry in for you!

A book that teaches me how to appreciate the evil kitty brothers? I don't think that's possible. I would like to enter the drawing to see if this is really true. I doubt I'll be able to learn to appreaciate them, they are big mean kitties - with spikey nails!
