A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers
By Anouska Jones
Cats have a way of walking into our lives and making themselves right at home. No cat lover can imagine life without a feline presence — even if it’s only as fleeting as the occasional conversation with a neighborhood stray. MEOW: A Book of Happiness for Cat Lovers (Exisle Publishing, New in Paperback, March 2016) is a compendium of delightful quotes and gorgeous photographs that capture the essence of this fascination. Together they show a cat’s beauty and grace. Some of the quotes are by famous people (Mark Twain, Jean Cocteau, Ernest Hemingway), others not; some are philosophical, others light-hearted — all are memorable. The imagery captures the elegance, style and pesonality of cats.
MEOW is the perfect gift for cat lovers -- a book that will be forever treasured, displayed and enjoyed.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Anouska Jones is a cat-loving book editor, who has worked in publishing for over twenty years. She compiled the quotes in MEOW from a range of sources, while her beloved cat kept close watch from her vantage point on Anouska’s desk.

Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. It is a family owned and operated company and has been since 1945.
We specialize in lawn and garden tools and dog clean-up tools, which are available at many quality retailers across the nation. These brands are made up of cutting, digging, cultivating, weeding, and clean-up tools
At Flexrake® we are committed to American manufacturing. We continue to employ Americans in manufacturing and do everything in our power to retain jobs in America. Our top selling garden and pet products are “Made in America”, here in Temple City, California. We believe that we can be competitive in America and we intend on continuing that philosphy. Our customers and our associates are and will remain our top priority.
Family owned and operated since 1945.
The economic growth of the United States following World War II saw parallel growth in many industries. The sheer volume of new agricultural fields and the explosion of residential properties required many new high quality hand tools.
Among the many to respond to the needs of the agricultural and landscape professionals was George Brock, our founder. George designed and manufactured a new durable and lightweight metal rake which was the first to feature curved tines that penetrated the surface of the turf. This made each stroke more efficient and required far fewer strokes to complete each raking project. George literally created the “Lawn Rake” market with his new “flexing rake.”
During the next few years George developed a strong following, yet he did not rest on his laurels. He continued to refine his manufacturing processes and created new metal composition. George wanted to ensure that each tine would individually flex and lift embedded debris from deep below the surface and at the same time, last job after job.
In 1975, after nearly 30 years, George hired John McGuire. John quickly learned about lawn and garden from George and many other industry professionals. Never satisfied with just conversation, John decided to work with the local landscapers to see just how our tools performed in the field. Ultimately, he set the company on a solid path of manufacturing and product development.
Today, Flexrake® is America's number one brand name in raking. John makes sure that all of us here at Flexrake® continue to build on the foundation of enthusiasm for manufacturing great products that George Brock started 65 years ago.

My Rescue Dog Rescued Me
Amazing True Stories of Adopted Canine Heroes
By Sharon Ward Keeble
A dog’s breeding and background matter so much less than many people believe. All too often, shelter dogs are dismissed as adoption options because they are “damaged” or “risky.” But inside every dog, no matter where it comes from, is the potential for a loyal, loving, and brave companion. No collection of stories demonstrates that more than those in My Rescue Dog Rescued Me (Skyhorse Publishing, April 2017).
In this inspiring little book, author Sharon Ward Keeble will introduce readers to the incredible dogs who went from being shelter rescues to becoming rescuers in these incredible true stories:
• Toby, the golden retriever who performed the Heimlich maneuver to save his owner’s life
• Liam, the Lhasa Apso-Poodle mix who helped his owner battle an eating disorder
• Hercules, the St. Bernard who saved his owners from burglars on the first day he moved in
• Alfie, the terrier who gave a bullied girl a new lease on life
• And many more!
These canine heroes came to their owner’s aid in their times of greatest need—whether it was saving them from physical

Dr. Petty’s Pain Relief for Dogs:
The Complete Medical and Integrative Guide to Treating Pain
By Dr. Michael Petty
Publisher: Countryman Press
Publication Date: February 1, 2016
Price: $24.95 / hardcopy
“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.
