So please keep all that tasty loot away from the family pets.

It's something that I get asked about often, and that makes me sad. Why? Simple... because puppies are almost NEVER 'aggressive'!
New or inexperienced dog owners often seem to confuse normal puppy behaviors such as nipping/biting/jumping/growling and so on, with aggressive behavior.
Unfortunately this can cause difficulty bonding with a puppy, training issues, behavior issues and worse.
Of course there is the very occasional exception to this rule (which is why I've said that puppies are 'almost never' aggressive), but it's very rare.
If your puppy nips, growls, chases the cat (or the kids), barks, jumps or generally behaves like a lunatic at supper time - chances are good that he's just a perfectly normal puppy.
Those behaviors need to be discouraged firmly, but they're not a temperament problem.

I was recently asked to review 'Miracle Dogs - Rescue Stories' by Liz Stavrinides.
This book is gorgeous on so many levels, and it's touching, heart-warming and thought-provoking.
The writer's love of animals and talent as a photographer shine brightly.
If you're the proud owner of a 'rescue' (aka 'pound pup') you'll easily identify with all the people featured.
If rescue isn't an option you've explored yet, chances are this book will encourage you to open your heart to a dog (or cat/small pet) that is desperate for a chance at love.
Written from the heart and packed full of beautiful photographs of dogs and their people, it's a book that you'll dip into over and over again.
There are so many stories that it's impossible for me to choose just one favorite.
There's Wyatt the Golden Retriever who is the best friend (and therapy dog) that 7 year old Ashton, who has autism, could ever have hoped for.
Then there's Marvin, the Pitbull-mix who's love and protection allowed an elderly couple to stay safely in their own home for years longer than they would have been able to otherwise.
Not to forget the sad, but happy-ending story of Priscilla the pregnant Pitbull who was rescued from a kill-shelter at the very last minute. Her 10 puppies were delivered safely and momma and all puppies found forever, loving homes.
.... and so, so many more.
I doubt you'll be able to pick just one favorite either!
Just one more thing that I love about this book is how the stories don't just focus on what the humans have done to help these needy dogs.
It also looks closely at how bringing these animals into their lives has a profound and positive effect on the lives of their 'rescuers'.
It shows that rescue is more of a mutually beneficial act, than a one-way street. How cool is that?
'Miracle Dogs' is available as of October 7th, and if you're a dog lover I highly recommend adding this to your bookshelf.
