happy hound coverHappy Hound: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Dog or Puppy
by Susan C. Daffron
ISBN: 978-0-9749245-2-6; LCCN-2006909898

When you adopt a dog or puppy, you are thrust into a strange new world where you don’t even speak the language. In Happy Hound, you’ll learn solutions to everyday problems dog owners face. Unlike breed-specific or veterinary books, Happy Hound is tailored to the special needs and issues related to living with a rescued puppy or dog. Many shelters give you a packet of information, but especially at smaller shelters they just can’t afford either the time or money to provide a lot of information. Happy Hound is designed to fill that need. Plus, if you’ve ever read a dog book where you wondered if the author ever even owned a dog, you’ll find Happy Hound a refreshing change. The book is filled with sidebars and anecdotes about the antics of the author’s gang of four dogs. You’ll never be left feeling like your dog is “really different” from anything you’ve read. Even though every dog is special, no dog is perfect!

Once you understand feline motivations, you can more easily solve problems that arise. Happy Tabby is based on reality. Cats aren’t machines, and Happy Tabby embraces the unique aspects of living with a cat, along with personal anecdotes featuring the author’s two weird and wonderful felines. Written in a low-key, easy to understand style, this book is filled with practical advice on raising a cat or kitten you can live with for years to come.
