“Dr. Petty arms his readers with the information they need to help their canine companions stay comfortable, even in the face of illness or old age. He has done a great service for dogs and the people who love them. Read this book. Your dog will thank you.”
– Dr. Jessica Pierce, bioethicist and author of The Last Walk
Veterinary Expert Dr. Petty Provides a New Comprehensive Guide to
Diagnosing and Relieving Your Dog's Pain
You love your dog, and hate to see him in pain. Yet you don’t want to head to the vet’s office for hundreds of dollars’ worth of tests that might prove useless. Dr. Mike Petty understands this dilemma. He’s a world-renowned “pain vet,” a practitioner of a relatively new and specific branch of veterinarian medicine, and the author of Dr. Petty’s Pain Relief for Dogs(Countryman Press; February 1, 2016).
According to Dr. Petty, “Despite your best intentions, it can be difficult for you as your animal’s caregiver to recognize when your pet is in pain. All animals are adept at hiding signs of pain – in fact, pain does not always manifest itself in the more obvious form of a limp or an animal crying out. Instead, pain is often exhibited as a change in behavior.”
Dr. Petty works with cutting-edge research to find the best way to both recognize and relieve your pet's pain. In the book, he provides dog owners with an invaluable resource that will educate and guide readers in three critical areas:
1. How to determine whether a dog is in pain
2. How to find a veterinarian capable of treating these pain issues
3. What treatments are available, and more importantly which are worth pursuing and which are not
Dr. Petty offers clear descriptions of the treatments, both traditional and holistic, along with the wisdom and support dog owners crave when faced with an animal in pain.
In Dr. Petty’s Pain Relief for Dogs,Dr. Petty’s goal is to provide owners with the tools needed to both identify the signs – and then treat – pain in their nonverbal best friend. Starting with how to recognize signs of pain in your dog (and how to avoid common misconceptions), the book helps to differentiate acute and chronic pain. Dr. Petty also provides information to guide owners through their veterinary visits, including what should be expected in pain exams as well as common medications. Dr. Petty, himself a veterinary pain management expert and acupuncturist, walks readers through the vastly misunderstood acupuncture process, explaining the science behind why it’s so successful.
Drawing on almost four decades of experience, Dr. Petty also offers advice to owners regarding lesser understood topics like dog prosthetics, diet and nutraceuticals, alternative medications such as botanicals, and treatments including shock wave therapy. This book provides practical “DIY” information for owners as well, from home exercise to massages, and explains how to conduct a pain “makeover” for your home and dog.
Dr. Petty’s Pain Relief for Dogs also goes beyond guiding the owner through their pet’s pain. In the book, Dr. Petty helps owners evaluate what considerations to make when thinking about adding another pet to your home, what to do when pain treatment becomes unaffordable, and last, how to cope when chronic pain treatment and quality of life issues.

From the humans at BarkPost comes the first official BarkBook, DOGS AND THEIR PEOPLE: Photos and Stories of Life with a Four-Legged Love, which Putnam is excited to publish on October 18, 2016. A collection of community-sourced and never-before-told anecdotes, stories, photos, and intimate insights, DOGS AND THEIR PEOPLE captures the depth, spirit, and power of the extraordinary bond between humans and their pups and spotlights more than two hundred unique and remarkable dogs. Some are celebri-dogs (oh hello, Tuna Melts My Heart and Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund) while others are just making their debut; some will make your heart ache while others will make it soar; and others simply look dapper in color.
But this book isn’t just about the dogs; it’s about celebrating the crazy, consuming, unconditional love we feel for them. It’s about the songs you’ve made up for them, the hugs you’ve given them on bad days, and all the outfits that—let’s be honest—you forced them into. It’s about the lightness they’ve brought to our lives just by being there—and having smushy faces. We hear you, dog people; this one is for you.
BarkPost is the mastiff-sized media outlet for all things dog. By creating original (and heart-warming, and goofy) content for dog people, BarkPost helps dogs share their stories with the world using the power of humans. BarkPost is part of Bark & Co, the New York-based startup dedicated to making dogs and their people happy. Since launching in 2012 with BarkBox, a monthly box of funny toys, treats and chews that you can’t find together anywhere else, the dog-obsessed humans at Bark & Co have shipped more than 25 million products to date. The company has since expanded in recent years with a goal of getting the backs of dog parents for everything - creating its own products, experiences and entertainment with BarkShop, BarkLive, and BarkPost.
Stacie Grissom and Morgane Chang from BarkPost and select contributors from the book are available for media interviews. Please contact Katie McKee at Putnam for more information.

RESCUING PENNY JANE
One Shelter Volunteer, Countless Dogs,
and the Quest to Find Them All Homes
By Amy Sutherland
What shelter dogs need is obvious – homes. But how do we find all those homes? That question sends best-selling writer and shelter volunteer Amy Sutherland looking for answers in her own experiences and beyond. The result is RESCUING PENNY JANE: One Shelter Volunteer, Countless Dogs, and the Quest to Find Them All Homes (Harper; on sale February 21, 2017; $26.99), an inspiring, fascinating trip through the world of homeless dogs and the people who work so hard to save them.
A longtime shelter volunteer, Sutherland essentially lets the dogs she’s known do the talking because in their stories she finds so many answers. There’s Gwen Stefani, a ball-crazy pit bull mix who can’t find a family; Rugby, an abandoned puppy with crippled front legs, and Brody, a young German Shepherd who likes to mouth people, among many others. Readers will also meet the author’s own dogs—Penny Jane, a skittish stray from a Maine farm, and Walter Joe, a luckless terrier from a hoarder’s house—as well as Sido, the sheltie-mix who inspired the no-kill movement, and Sadie the Civil War dog who braved Gettysburg. Traveling across the country, Sutherland draws further solutions and inspiration from the experiences and stories of shelter workers and experts at the forefront of the rescue community.
Throughout her explorations, Sutherland also weaves in a wealth of practical tips, such as how to read a dog’s body language, handle behavior problems, and select your own shelter dog as well as fresh insights into what makes dogs – and humans – tick. At a time when Americans have more dogs than children, the time is ripe to end dog homelessness, and RESCUING PENNY JANE reveals how we can do it.
RESCUING PENNY JANE offers an unforgettable, poignant journey into the special world of rescue and shelter dogs. As the New York Times bestselling author of the memoir Bettyville writes, “Sutherland gives us puppy love, yes, but she goes beyond sentiment and shows us how we can change the lives of the creatures who give the world so much.”
About the Author

She writes for the New York Times, Smithsonian, Preservation, Women's Health and more, and has a regular column, “Bibliophiles,” in the Boston Globe's Sunday Book Section. She lives in Boston with her two rescue dogs, Walter Joe and Penny Jane.

Steve Irwin meets David Attenborough in this jaw-dropping account of studying the world’s most venomous creatures. Venom Doc The Edgiest, Darkest, Strangest Natural History Memoir Ever By Bryan Grieg Fry
Praise on behalf of Venom Doc
“Venom Doc is jam-packed with wildly entertaining behind-the-scenes stories of how Bryan became an expert on venom and the trials and tribulations of a life in science. Brilliant, flamboyant, and sometimes controversial . . . This book is thrilling and thought-provoking!” —Nigel Marven, BBC television host
“If you’re a fan of the animals most love to loathe, then this book is definitely for you.” —Discover magazine
“If the first two rules of writing one’s memoirs are to live a remarkable life and to relate its anecdotes in an interesting, entertaining way, then Bryan Fry's Venom Doc nails it on both counts.” —Ray Morgan, The Venom Interviews
A One-of-a-Kind Tale of a Man’s Passion for Poison
Venomologist Bryan Grieg Fry has one of the most dangerous jobs on earth: he works with its deadliest creatures. He’s been bitten by twenty-six poisonous snakes, stung by three stingrays, and survived a near-fatal scorpion sting while deep in the Amazon jungle. He’s also broken twenty-three bones, including his back in three places, and had to learn how to walk again. But when you research only the venom you yourself have collected, the adventures—and dangers—never stop. Imagine a three-week-long first date in Siberia catching venomous water shrews; a wedding attended by Eastern European prime ministers with their machine-gun-wielding bodyguards and snakes; or leading a team to Antarctica that results in the discovery of four new species of venomous octopi. With an insatiable appetite for venom, Bryan has traveled the world collecting samples. He’s encountered poisonous creatures of all kinds, including the Malaysian king cobra, the Komodo dragon, and the brush-footed trapdoor spider. He recounts his lifelong passion for studying the world’s most venomous creatures in this outlandish, captivating memoir, where he and danger are never far apart. Venom Doc: The Edgiest, Darkest, Strangest Natural History Memoir Ever (Arcade Publishing; October 2016) is a one-of-a-kind tale of a man’s passion for poison. Fry is a doctor, writer, documentary and TV personality, and professor at the Venomics Laboratory at the University of Queensland. Originally published in Australia, this is Venom Doc’s North American debut, and it will be many readers’ first exposure to Fry. Prepare to follow his colorful journeys into remote corners of the world where he searches for venom that has led to medical cures and scientific breakthroughs. Fry experienced an Icarus-like crash when he sustained a near-career-ending injury, breaking his back. While stuck in a hospital for four months, and during his long recovery, Fry thought up this book as a self-help exercise. The result is a wild, sometimes zany, gripping, and surprisingly inspiring read. Anyone who loves adventures, big personalities, animals, and moving stories will adore the fiercely exciting ride that is Fry’s memoir Venom Doc.
About the Author: Bryan Grieg Fry was born in 1970 to a Norwegian mother and an American father and educated in the United States, attending Portland State University before pursuing a PhD in Australia at the University of Queensland’s Centre for Drug Design and Development. His papers and articles have been published widely in academic journals and in the trade media, including Wired, Cosmos, and National Geographic, and he has appeared in documentaries and television programs. He also is the author of Venomous Reptiles and Their Toxins (Oxford University Press). He is associate professor in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland where he is group leader of the Venomics Laboratory. He resides in Queensland, Australia.

Lead with Your Heart
Lessons from a Life with Horses
6 x 6.7 inches
Publisher: Storey Publishing, LLC
Publication Date: September 6, 2016
Author: Allan Hamilton, MD
In his nearly three decades of working with horses, author Dr. Allan J. Hamilton has developed a unique way of listening to these elegant creatures. His resulting insights translate far beyond the training ring and are relevant in boardrooms, living rooms, classrooms, and even meditation rooms.
“Working with a horse is never about the horse; it is always about you,” Hamilton writes in the introduction to this collection ofmore than 100 short essays. He calls on his experience as both a celebrated neurosurgeon and widely respected horse trainer to explore how the horse is a metaphor for the spirit and how working with a horse leads readers to examine themes such as the self and others; leadership, power, and trust; prey and predator; ambition and humility; learning and teaching; motivation and gratitude; and much more.
Like humans, horses yearn for harmony, kindness, and tranquility. In the herd, they share values of fairness, forgiveness, leadership, partnership, kinship, and trust. Hamilton’s essays, developed as he worked with his Lipizzan stallion Romeo, will inspire anyone interested in personal self-awareness and growth.
Praise for Lead with Your Heart
“Allan Hamilton is a real brain surgeon with true horse sense. If you want to be a better leader, teacher, parent — a more conscious human being, rather than a human doing — this is a book to keep close.”
— Stephen Kiesling, editor-in-chief, Spirituality & Health
v v v
“Dr. Hamilton blends horse sense with common sense and adds lessons on trust, respect, and compassion, which we can take from the round pen, to the saddle, to the office, and to our living rooms.”
— Molly Sweeney, vice president of the Horses & Humans Research Foundation
v v v
“Lead with Your Heart takes you deep into learning the art of horsemanship and helps you enter the sensory-based world of the horse.”
— Temple Grandin, author of Humane Livestock Handling and Animals in Translation
v v v
“What a gem of a book! Allan Hamilton offers jewels to enrich our relationships with horse, family, colleagues, and self. This is the sort of book to keep close to refer to as life’s inevitable chaotic waves threaten.”
— Barbara K. Rector, CEIP-ED, co-founder of Equine Facilitated Mental Health Association
v v v
"Recent research tells us that horses are much smarter than we once believed. Allan J. Hamilton provides an excellent foundation for how to achieve a deeper and more rewarding partnership with them.”
— Wendy Williams, author of The Horse: The Epic History of Our Noble Companion
v v v
“Dr. Allan Hamilton’s unfailing respect for the dignity and wisdom of horses provides an excellent blueprint for all who love our equine companions.”
— Elizabeth Letts, New York Times best-selling author of The Eighty-Dollar Champion and The Perfect Horse
v v v
"Hamilton transfers life lessons learned from his history with horses to be applicable to anyone wishing to live a more mindful life. Both the writing and paintings invite quiet reflection on the ways we live, act, and interact with each other, horses, and the world."

HorseOPeace.com is based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where Elizabeth with help of technologically gifted husband Nick spearheading design, website and operational support, offers soaps, creams and lip balms of unsurpassed highest quality. She also homeschools the couple’s 4 sons, aged 1 to 5. In her community activities, she bakes and donates cookies and cakes for a men’s rehabilitation center and at HorseOPeace.com is supportive of our troops by adding free soap to any orders received with a U.S. military address.
Raised in Minnesota, where she was born, and Wisconsin, where her family moved when she was 14, Elizabeth was homeschooled and self-educated in a small farming village where she became a devotee of the Plain People Church (similar to Amish). A decade later she left the church to marry non-member Nick. When in Wisconsin, she formed HorseOPeace.com after years of training horses for rugged farm work and gentleness for families with children. She also volunteered as a horse handler for use with challenged/disabled children. Working outdoors in wintry Wisconsin, her hands would crack, but healed as she began making goat milk soap. Elizabeth knew others could benefit from her wonderful natural toxin-free soaps, so HorseOPeace.com began.
Elizabeth is now a fashion-forward skincare advocate with loyal customers reporting her moisturizing soaps help dry, sensitive skin and conditions from eczema to psoriasis. Her company name reflects a time growing up when farmers called the distance to ride to town as a “horse-a-piece up the road,” a term she adapted to reflect her love of horses and peaceful nature to be HorseOPeace.com as she journeys to achieve the American Dream.
Meowijuana Launches Catnip Product Line
for "Cats Who Need the Weed"
PRESS RELEASE NOV 29, 2016 08:00 CST
Meowijuana, a catnip company, launches new product line
that makes a great holiday gift and is available for pet
stores to sell nationwide.
Kansas City, Missouri, November 29, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Meowijuana LLC, a catnip
company, has launched a new product line that is creatively branded and plays on the
euphoric "high" some cats have from catnip. The company sells 100 percent organic catnip
that is available for shipping both domestically and internationally. Meowijuana’s legendary
catnip is grown in Southern California and Washington State.
Although the company uses the trademarked tag line, “For cats who need the weed”, there is
no actual marijuana in the product. It is perfectly safe and legal for both cats, and even
people, to consume. Catnip, which is from the mint family, contains the chemical
nepetalactone, which triggers a sense of euphoria in susceptible cats. But not all cats react
to catnip. Pet MD has noted that sensitivity to catnip is an inherited trait effecting 50 to 75
percent of cats. Catnip produces a different response depending on how it’s consumed.
Sniffing catnip produces a stimulant effect while eating it can cause sedation in cats.
The company also sells the product similarly to the
way marijuana dispensaries do in Colorado and
other states where it is legal. Meowijuana’s Purple
Passion Jars offer the product in clear re-sealable
jars. The catnip buds were harvested during peak oil
product providing cats the next-level catnip
experience. For the most dedicated catnip
connoisseurs, Meowijuana offers the Grand Daddy
Purr Cigar Box. The humidity-regulated cigar boxes
are filled with the finest 100 percent organic Grand
Daddy Purr Catnip buds. The company even offers their customers, a Medical Meowijuana ID
card, which includes the cat’s pictures, name, sex and date of birth.
“We offer the highest-quality, pet-safe, organic catnip you will find on the market today all
packaged in a unique branding concept that our customers love,” says Chris Glissman, CEO
