HOUNDED

The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds

A Memoir by Matt Ziselman

HOUNDED
The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds
A Memoir by Matt Ziselman

Dogs can be rewarding, frustrating, humbling, enjoyable, disastrous, consuming, confusing and exciting (sometimes all at once!). With a household of three dachshunds, Matt Ziselman knows all about the highs and lows.

In HOUNDED: The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds (Center Street / Hachette Book Group; May 14, 2013; Hardcover, $20.00), Ziselman relays his life with three furry family members. Living with three dachshunds can be a challenge, an adventure and sometimes a pain in the neck.  But even after all the poop is scooped and dog hair is removed from the couch, Ziselman knows his dogs have given him and his family much more than they have taken. 

Ziselman shares the idiosyncrasies of each dachshund, from Baxter’s obsessive staring, to Maya’s irrational fear of the front door, to Molly’s inexhaustible, wiggling happiness. He sees in each trait not peculiarity (well maybe some) but a unique wisdom. Ziselman shares what each dog has taught him about his own life, lessons we would all benefit from learning.

Some hot-dog sized wisdom from Baxter, Maya, and Molly:
•    If you’re going to be moody, happy is a good choice.
•    Time moves fast enough on its own, don’t rush it.
•    Emotions are complicated; kisses are pretty straightforward.
•    All you need are one or two good friends. Any species will do.
•    If it belongs to you, prove it.
•    Even with a messy past, the present can still be pretty neat.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Matt Ziselman grew up in Long Island, New York. First as a copywriter, and later as a Creative Director, Ziselman has been involved in marketing some of the world’s leading brands. When he’s not busy writing about himself in the third person, Ziselman lives in New Jersey where he tries to keep three Dachshunds, a daughter and a wife blissfully happy, but not necessarily in that order.

THE WARBLER GUIDE

Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle

“The Warbler Bible has come forth!”* This book contains everything you need to identify warblers by sight or sound

Companion site: http://www.thewarblerguide.com/. 


“A warbler feast for the eyes. . . . THE WARBLER GUIDE, by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle, is not just another bird identification book. . . . The authors have thought long and hard about what makes an identification guide work and then approached it their own way. The auditory descriptions of bird song and chips, based on scientific analysis rather than a subjective translation of sound, present a very different approach to identifying birds by ear. The abundance of photographs, the plethora of charts and finding guides, all printed in brilliant color on lovely paper, the clarity of design, make this book a joy to look at and to use.”—Donna Schulman, 10,000 Birds

“The Warbler Bible has come forth! This is easily the most comprehensive and fantastic warbler specific guide covering North American Warblers. I am amazed and impressed with each of its features. . . . [A] must-have book.”—Robert Mortensen, Birding is Fun*

Warblers are notoriously tricky to find and identify. First, there is the timing—they are only here for a short period of time during their semi-annual migrations. Second, they tend to be tiny, fast, and hidden at the tops of trees. Third, there are many different kinds of warblers that look quite similar. Fourth, well, do you really need me to continue? Yet, in spite of these challenges, birdwatchers set out in droves each spring and fall to catch a glimpse or in most cases hear a trill of a song. There’s just something about warblers…

Warbler fans now have a new reason to rejoice, because finding and identifying these colorful little birds will be easier than ever thanks to THE WARBLER GUIDE by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle (pub date: July 24, 2013). This is truly the definitive guide to all things warbler and will be a welcome addition to any birder’s library.

So, what’s new in THE WARBLER GUIDE? Just about everything. The front portion of the book is a combination of a master class in bird-watching (chapters on What to Notice on a Warbler, Aging and Sexing Warblers, and How to Listen to Warbler Songs) and an introduction to visualizing and hearing songs and calls (Understanding Sonograms, Learning
Chip and Flight Calls). These sections are followed by a series of innovative Quickfinders that present side-by-side profiles, undertails, full body views, and song sonograms so readers can quickly and easily identify the warblers they’ve seen in the field.

And then it’s on to the species accounts section of the book. Helpful, clear icons appear at the top of each account to give an overall shape, color, and pattern impression, as well as basic map range and habitat type. The authors include dozens of photos for each species highlighting the overall jizz of the bird, as well as a Distinctive Views section that emphasizes identification markings. Bulleted text provides quick takes on identification from the side, below, and above. Additional photos show birds in flight, typical behaviors, and reveal interesting tidbits (Did you know the American Redstart’s nickname is the Halloween Warbler?). Separate sections consider Comparison Species and instruct readers on Aging and Sexing by season, while detailed seasonal distribution maps and bar graphs show where and when species are most likely to be found.

The final, and perhaps most unique, section of the species accounts is an in-depth look at songs, chips, and flight calls for the species and its comparison species. This section is particularly useful for bird-watching in the late spring when birds are more likely to be heard than seen. A companion audio package is available separately via http://www.thewarblerguide.com/. 

Rounding out the text is a list of similar non-warbler species, a quick overview of hybrid warblers, and a description of warblers in flight. Readers will appreciate a chance to test their new warbler id skills with a brief quiz section, as well as the informative appendices listing measurements, habitats, and behavior.

The publication of THE WARBLER GUIDE will be followed by the release of a companion app that includes 360˚ views and audio files in time for spring migration 2014 (details to follow). An eBook version of the book will be available on July 7, 2014.

About the Authors:

He has guided groups across the United States and Asia. A musician, he has had several Grammy and Academy Award winners as clients, and was director of technology at Roland Corporation.

Nearly two out of three American families share their homes with pets; one-half to two-thirds of that group see their pets as full-fledged family members. We speak of our pets as if they’re our children, invite them into our beds with us, celebrate their birthdays, take them on vacations, and even leave messages for them on the answering machine. Craving even more contact with animals, 143 million guests flock to zoos and wildlife parks each year in North America. What is it about animals that makes us feel such a strong kinship with them?

“I believe that the answer to that question lies in the sense of belonging we feel in the company of other creatures,” says veterinarian and animal behaviorist Dr. Vint Virga. “In the presence of animals, we find true acceptance. Alone with them, our self-consciousness dissolves.” Drawing on his thirty years’ experience working with animals both domestic and wild, Virga’s book THE SOUL OF ALL LIVING CREATURES: What Animals Can Teach Us About Being Human (on sale July 9) recounts true stories from Virga’s practice to examine the profound connections we forge with animals, and to explore the world from their viewpoint.

“We think that humans and animals express themselves in dramatically different ways, but if you look closely, that’s not really true,” says Virga. “Animals are just much more aware of the signals that they communicate with than we are. Part of my goal is to unlock the mysteries of animal behavior so we can have a new perspective on what is happening in our day-to-day lives on a less obvious level.”

“Surrounding every one of us are animals ready to serve as teachers by opening doors to new perspectives and ways of being,” says Virga. “If we’re willing to listen, notice, and embrace what we hold in common with them, together we can change how we live from day to day, and discover a deeper sense of connection to others and the world around us.” THE SOUL OF ALL LIVING CREATURES serves as a guide to beginning that process.

About the Author

Dr. Vint Virga is a distinguished practitioner and leader in veterinary behavioral medicine. He consults nationally to zoos and wildlife parks, private corporations, and professional organizations on the care and well-being of animals and has appeared on ABC’s World News, National Geographic’s Explorer, PBS’s Nature and on Wild TV.

Dogs With No Names:

In Pursuit of Courage, Hope and Purpose

By Dr. Judith Samson-French

Unnamed, Unclaimed & Unwanted

NEW BOOK TAKES UNPRECEDENTED LOOK AT THE TRUE NATURE OF DOGS LIVING BETWEEN TWO WORLDS

 

The compassion and determination that shine through each page of this wonderful book provide a compelling reminder of our deep connections to all other living things, and of the potential that resides within each and every one of us to make change in the world.

-- Jane Lawton, CEO, Jane Goodall Institute of Canada

 

Did you know:

· On the vast reserve lands of North America roam millions of unnamed, unclaimed, unwanted dogs?

· Feral canines have been documented in all 50 states, and estimates of damage in the U.S. from these animals amount to $620M annually? [USDA National Wildlife Research Centre]

· Stray and feral dogs can, in fact, be rehabilitated?

 

Dogs With No Names, the eye opening new book from Dr. Judith Samson-French, reveals to us the mysteries – and truths – behind these forgotten canines.

Delving into the complex bond between mankind and ‘man’s best friend’, Dogs With No Names follows Samson-French’s journey to implant a study group of “rez dogs” in Alberta, Canada with a groundbreaking new contraceptive.

Exposing the adversity, despair and suffering these animals face – and how we can collectively begin to take action to help – Dogs With No Names shines a spotlight on a peripheral and timely social issue, challenging our basic beliefs while teaching us insightful lessons about our own lives.

With intimate personal narratives highlighted by vivid photography, Dogs With No Names – 100% of the proceeds of which are donated back to the Dogs With No Names charity – is a matter-of-fact, challenging and important addition to the conversation about our responsibility towards all living creatures. Among the topics and themes explored in it are:

· Why dogs – domesticated and feral alike – behave the way they do, and what you can learn from the dogs with no names to maximize your relationship with your pet at home

· Sterilization, contraception and euthanasia: thinking outside the box and embracing innovation to help curb the canine overpopulation crisis

· An intimate look at the relationship between North America’s First Nations communities and dogs: seeing past our prejudices to build bridges and understanding between our often combative cultures

· Compassion, purpose and hope: how witnessing the most devastating of circumstances can lead to deeply meaningful revelations about ourselves and our capacity to do good in the world

· Rehabilitation and rehoming: the work being done to give homeless and feral dogs throughout North America a new lease on life

“The challenges of working with these nameless dogs reminds us time and again how overwhelming the world and its complexities can be,” says Dr. Samson-French. “But a number of reflections, rationalizations and resolutions come to light. The most obvious one? In the end, being engaged in acts of selfless love helps each of us to preserve our own sanity.”

About the Author:

A veterinary clinician and surgeon with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Judith Samson-French owns and operates a veterinary hospital in the heart of the beautiful Rocky Mountain foothills. A graduate of McGill University (B.Sc.) and the University of Alberta (M.Sc.), she received her doctorate in veterinary medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College.

She is currently leading a first-time trial project that involves implementing contraceptives in unwanted dogs on native reserve lands to prevent the births of countless dogs with no names. 100% of profits from the sales of Dogs With No Names are donated to the Dogs With No Names project, of which Samson-French is founder.

In June 2013, Dr. Samson-French will be presenting her research files on Dogs With No Names at the Alliance for Contraception of Cats & Dogs 5th International symposium. Her next book, 39 Ways to Kill Your Best Friend: Tales of Caution for Dog Lovers, is expected for release in spring 2013.

Dogs With No Names is currently available via the DWNN website, Amazon and in select chain and independent brick-and-mortar bookstores throughout North America.

The Adventures of Bella and Harry

by Lisa Manzione

GLOBAL GEOGRAPHY TAUGHT THROUGH TWO CHIHUAHUAS IN NEW CHILDREN’S SERIES

- Children’s author exposes children to important world cities through the adventures of two small dogs

With kids today watching anime cartoons and nonchalantly snacking on things like hummus or lychee fruit, it’s becoming more and more easy to see the day-to-day effects of globalization in our American society. However, this welcome change doesn’t seem to affect our country’s knowledge of the world around us. In fact, according to a Roper poll done by National Geographic, nine in ten young adults couldn't find Afghanistan on a map of Asia. Despite the increasingly popular acceptance of cultural influences, America seems to be largely unaware of the geography that surrounds us. But there’s hope for the coming generations!

The new series The Adventures of Bella and Harry by Lisa Manzione will help young children get an early start on geography. Manzione’s books follow two small dogs as they travel the various major cities of the world, making geography fun and exciting for kids. As children engage in the series, they learn about different places of interest through the eyes of Chihuahua duo, Bella and Harry. Keeping with modern themes of global tolerance, Manzione touches on not only geography, but unique aspects that run deeply within each city’s culture.

I do not believe that there are enough books for children between the ages of five and ten years that address geography, customs, cultures, etc...,” says Manzione. I thought The Adventures of Bella and Harry series would be a good introduction for children, and hopefully stimulate their curiosity for more knowledge regarding the world in which we live.”

“Trying to teach tolerance of other customs and cultures is also something that I set out to do,” adds Manzione. “For example, one book in the series, Let’s Visit Istanbul! addresses mosques and Muslim faith and another, Let’s Visit Jerusalem! addresses the Western Wall and other religious landmarks.”

Major themes in the books include:

· Travel – The series gives children an exposure to traveling and the many gains one can acquire from it.

· Culture – Each book includes interesting things like typical food, dress, architecture, and religion.

· History – Landmarks are identified as well as ruins, museums, and even important bodies of water.

· Language – at the end of each book, Manzione includes basic vocabulary from the country explored, such as how to say “hello” and “goodbye”, and “yes” and “no.”

The books are written for elementary aged children and include adventures to London, Paris, Venice, Athens, Barcelona, Cairo, and Istanbul. Other cities such as Rome, Edinburgh, and Jerusalem are to be released within the year. The Bella and Harry website at www.bellaandharry.com also gives kids the opportunity to further interact with these two adorable dogs with coloring book printouts, interactive games, and information about the musical play based on the books. Also available online are study guides available to accompany each book in the series.

Lisa Manzione has traveled to each of the cities that she cites in her books. Manzione started the series after discovering that her children had an inadequate geographical education from their public schools. She is the proud single mother of two college-graduates and currently resides in Delray Beach, FL with her seven dogs.

For further information on the series please visit www.bellaandharry.com

The first nine books in The Adventures of Bella and Harry series include Let’s Visit London!, Let’s Visit Paris!, Let’s Visit Venice!, Let’s Visit Athens!, Let’s Visit Barcelona!, Let’s Visit Cairo!, Let’s Visit Istanbul! Let’s Visit Rome!, and Let’s Visit Edinburgh! are available for purchase on www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com.  Let’s Visit Jerusalem! Will be available on June 1st.

Award-winning children’s picture book teaches children to count to ten with the help of Gracie, the amazing golden retriever.


Harrison Cover


"Designed to help youngsters learn to count, each page features a colorful and cleverly staged photo of Gracie, Joan's picturesque golden retriever, with easily identifiable objects for young readers to find...The photography is striking, and Miss Gracie exudes an approachable personality that kids will love." ~ John Lawless, Bluegrass Today

While caring for her aging parents, dog lover and first-time children’s book author Joan Harrison found a creative outlet in digital photography. Since her golden retriever Gracie was always at her side, Harrison used Gracie as a model as she honed her lighting and compositional skills.

A variety of greeting cards featuring Gracie followed, and Harrison soon envisioned a larger project. Since kids love dogs, and because canines are so beneficial in many areas of education and therapy, Harrison was certain Gracie would be "the perfect goofball star of a children’s book."

You Can Count on Gracie is the happy result. This uniquely imaginative journey through the land of one through ten offers bright, bold, humor-filled compositions alongside nimble rhyming verses that Harrison designed to "bring children and their parents together in laughter and an interactive learning experience as they discover how to count to ten."

From hats and carrots to books and fish to shoes and butterflies and more, Gracie stands at the ready to help children learn their numbers. Harrison quips, "A nose for fun and a sweet, smiling face – get ready to count with the amazing Ms. Grace!"

For its memorable combination of entertainment and education resulting in high quality rhymes, appealing humor, and eye-catching compositions, You Can Count on Gracie was awarded a Bronze Medal in the 2013 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) in the Children’s Picture Book category (ages seven and under).

AUTHOR: A graduate of Penn State University with a fine arts degree in print making, Joan Harrison has chosen digital photography to express her creative vision. Aside from her freelance photography work, she also performs as the banjo player and lead singer for the bluegrass band "Too Blue." She resides in upstate New York with her husband Brian, a sweet, sassy Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Rosie, a golden retriever puppy named Patsy, and of course Gracie.

The Secret Language of Dogs
Stories from a Dog Psychic
Jocelyn Kessler
Dog Whisperer to Celebrity Pets Shows How to Communicate with Your Dog
“I will always be grateful for the insights Jocelyn offered me, in how to help my sweet abused Dainty girl to live her happiest life!” —Carol Kane, Stage and Screen Actress
So often people mutter, “If only my dog could talk. Then I would know what he really wants. I would know what to do!” According to dog trainer and psychic, Jocelyn Kessler, dogs are communicating with us all the time, we just need to pay attention. “Your dog knows when you are getting a common cold even before you start sniffling,” says Kessler. “If you have great anxiety, not only does your dog feel it but she takes it on immediately. And, most of the time it’s because your dog doesn’t want you to feel it.”
Kessler, who has worked with the dogs of entertainment industry professionals, including celebrity actresses Parker Posey, Carol Kane, and Melanie Mayron, explains how to listen to your pet in her new book, THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF DOGS (Hampton Roads, April 2013).
Kessler offers poignant and humorous stories of actual sessions with clients, as well as a step-by- step guide to connect to your animal on your own. She explains how to read the behavioral and energetic traits of your dog, and how to avoid inflicting your own emotional issues onto your pet, along with special advice for helping dogs with medical conditions, rescue dogs, and dogs with behavioral issues.
THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF DOGS brings much needed attention to the value and appreciation of the wisdom of animals, how they live in the moment, and how, by connecting to them energetically, they can guide us to a higher level of understanding who and what we are.
Jocelyn Kessler lives in Los Angeles and works both in California and New York with animals and their owners, including many high profile individuals. Her website is www.jocelynkessler.com.
