Many years later, I was visiting friends. They had just gotten a Rottweiler puppy from the people at the bottom of the hill, and she sure was cute!! After hearing me say so, our friends took us to visit the puppies. It wasn’t my intention to get a dog. I had never even considered owning a dog. Yet when I sat down to play with the puppies, one leaped into my lap and chose me. Repeatedly, he returned to my lap, even when he was put with the other puppies. And so, Woodrow was mine. And I was his.
- If you treat dogs like family, they believe they are.
- Dogs are good judges of character. Their reactions to strangers at the door should be taken seriously.
- Stereotypes don’t necessarily apply. Rottweilers are only mean dogs if you raise them to be mean dogs. But not Woodrow; he loved the mailman, the vet, kids, and dressing up for Halloween!
- Dogs teach us life-changing lessons: the meaning of unconditional love, how to greet someone with enthusiasm, and how to enjoy simple pleasures such as the sights, sounds, and relaxation that can be found in the back yard or a walk down the street.
- 13 total sizes

Author Mark Winik will join Jon and Talkin' Pets pn 10/20/18 at 5pm EST to discuss and give away his new book "The Dog Healers" FeaturedWritten by Super User
Praise for Mark Winik's Debut Novel The Dog Healers
FINALLY! A truly powerful heroine. Mark Winik’s debut novel is the suspense packed story of a fierce young healer named Isabella who can breathe life into ailing dogs and turn race horses into champions.
In the tradition of Eva Peron, she ignores her Argentinian culture's ideas about female roles, plunging into the shadowy reaches of the horse racing world where thugs would turn her gift into riches. To her, money is just the means to her dream: creating a haven for all dogs, be they wretched, ill or aggressive. Isabella wields wit and charisma among society ladies, twisting gold-braceleted arms for donations, exerting a still greater spell on men.
This includes her handsome protégé Carlos, who yearns for the love Isabella shares with her dogs. But her dogs are her allies as villainous threats mount. Isabella faces the fight of her life, but when you've got dogs at your back, you're never alone.
Mark Winik is an entrepreneur and an internationally recognized, award-winning author of The Dog Healers. His inspiration for the story struck him on a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina with his wife Norma where he met a dog handler named Carlos.
Carlos taught him an Ancient Tibetan technique on his dogs called Kum Nye. This gift of healing so captivated Mark that he knew he had to write about his experience and share it with others. Since its publish, The Dog Healers was awarded 2017 Pet Novel of the Year at The New York Pet Fashion Show and has received praise from Hampton Pet’s Publisher Gregg Oehler, NYC Mayor’s Alliance for Animals, Pet Philanthropy Circle and appeared in the summer reads “Editors Picks” in New Haven Magazine.
Mark has been interviewed by Pet Life Radio’s Animal Writes with Tim Link, DogCast Radio and Top Dog Tips. Mark is also the conceptual artist for his collection of The Dog Healers cartoons in collaboration with his illustrator, Ivan Camilli, and is also working on a documentary related to the book that aims to share the stories of individuals who have overcome significant trauma or life difficulties with the support of their therapy dog. The Dog Healers Facebook page currently entertains more than 30,000 followers.

The Convention, that took place in Tenerife, Canary Islands, gathered together 850 congress attendees of 47 different nationalities, at an event in which the most worldwide-recognised experts in the field participate
[PRESSWIRE] Tenerife, Spain - 12 October, 2018 -- A resounding success: that is the summary of the IX Parrot Congress organised by the Loro Parque Foundation and held last week in Tenerife, where 850 congress participants of 47 different nationalities met. The experience, unique in the world, counted on the participation of the most recognised experts in the field worldwide.
This record number of nationalities present has allowed the interaction of the congress participants with various professionals and experts in different scientific areas, native to each continent where the Loro Parque Foundation develops multiple conservation projects among which are those that have managed to save nine parrot species from extinction. Up to now the Loro Parque Foundation has donated over 18 million dollars to support conservation projects for endangered species around the world.
During the Congress some of the most successful results obtained so far by the projects carried out by the Foundation were detailed, which show that the protection of parrot species also favours the protection of other species. Thus, thanks to these projects it has even been possible to identify new species of fauna -especially reptiles- as well as flora.
A total of 22 international speakers, whose conferences were simultaneously translated into four languages, have contributed their experiences and knowledge throughout this week in which, in addition to talks, many other actions were carried out. This year, in response to an unprecedented demand, intensive workshops were given in the days following the Congress, in which different experts have offered direct training in different fields linked to the world of conservation.
This Congress, unique in the world due to its nature and extraordinary convocation capacity, has moved some 1,000 people around the Island, congress attendees and their companions, who have been able to enjoy the excellence of the climate of Puerto de la Cruz as well as the biodiversity of the Canary Islands. The social programme of the convention also included an impressive typical Canarian dinner in the Plaza del Palacio Municipal in La Orotava; another, no less important, in the Auditorium of Santa Cruz de Tenerife; a visit to the Island of Gran Canaria to enjoy the Poema del Mar Aquarium, and, finally, a memorable Gala Dinner in the gardens of the Botánico Hotel.
Big week in Loro Parque
As part of the celebration of the IX Parrot Congress, Loro Parque has also inaugurated its new installation of Pygmy Hippos. The event was enjoyed by a large number of congress attendees, as well as numerous local authorities and representatives of the private sector, who were able to observe up-close an unparalleled naturalised space designed especially by the Park's team for the new arrivals.
In addition, also as part of the Congress programme, the Loro Parque Foundation has awarded the prestigious Gorilla Prize to Rosemary Low, a passionate defender of parrots who has dedicated her life to these birds through breeding and conservation. This year saw the fifteenth edition of this award, which emphasises environmental responsibility, taking into account strategies and actions to conserve biodiversity and promote the sustainable use of resources.
