Mom told JJ and I that many humans enjoy reading more during the summer than at other times of the year. Unfortunately, she still lugs these heavy rectangle thingies wherever she goes versus those humans who read 2.0 style with machines called Nooks, Kindles, and I-Pads. While listening to NPR radio two days ago, she heard a great story about K9 memoirs, “books about how dogs transform their owners’ lives.” Oh, did I mention that Mom reads like a turtle? (no disrespect to our friends at Under the Shell!)
The great part about the NPR link; you can listen to the story or read it. They review five books so you humans will sure have lots to choose from, learn and enjoy about us K9s! Mom said her first choice at the moment remains Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him is by Luis Carlos Montalvan.
Mom always shares books she purchases. These days, since Mom’s doing that budgeting thingie more, she may scout the used book store (the best one closed a few years back.) If our blogpals lived closer, we’d offer a book-swap!
I do not know, nor does Mom, who my Daddy is. I do not have a human male role model in my house, either. So, I will wish all the Dads out there, both 4 legged and 2 legged a wonderful day and continue on about my post.
Since you probably do not have much time to read today, I will hook you up with two interesting articles Mom read/played for me today.
The first, When Animals Love Us Back by Ms. Barbara King, shares her annual experience of taking care of 26 cats during “Cat Week” (when her husband takes a hiking trip.) NO SHE IS NOT A HOARDER, you will have to read on…
The second article, What Animals Can Teach Humans About Healing, by an NPR staffer, you may read or listen to. They review the new book, Zoobiquity, and share powerful information about how other creatures deal with illness.
