A Remarkable Cat and the Dying, A Flatulent Pup & Love!

February 1, 2014



The Dog's Book of Romance

by Lisa Roy Sachs and Kate Ledger


Lush color photos of gorgeous canine couples make this inventive and heart warming book the perfect gift for any romantic occasion.  Relationship advice (for all) is offered up with wit, char, and tender loving care.


Canine couples reveal with charm and wisdom just what it takes to make the romance last a lifetime.  Photographer Sach captures an array of striking dog duos, from bulldogs to beagles to Goldens, all captioned with advice on how to keep the love alive in any relationship.





Making Rounds With Oscar

by David Dosa


A seemingly ordinary cat, Oscar has an extraordinary ability.
He seems to sense when people are about to die.


This compelling story by a geriatrician with a strong aversion to cats will fascinate.


Oscar was adopted as a kitten by the staff at Steere House nursing home.  At the time of publication, Oscar, aged 3 has presided over the deaths of more than twenty-five nursing home residents. His mere presence at the bedside is viewed by physicians and staff as a near absolute indicator of impending death. 

As doubting author Dosa is drawn in, he begins to concede that there may be something special about Oscar, noticing that he seeks out the dying, snuggles with the patient and family members, and refuses to leave a dying patient’s bed.  Ultimately, it doesn’t matter where Oscar’s gifts come from, but the comfort this insistent cat brings to the frightened and the grieving.





Walter the Farting Dog Goes On A Cruise

by William Kotzwinkle


While no relation to the chief of our venerable news desk, Walt’s namesake’s book series comes with a warning:


This book may cause flatulence.


For the uninitiated to this delightful book series, allow us to introduce Walter.  A fine, round pup with a flair for adventure and, well, hot air.


Billy & Betty try and overlook and under smell his condition, but it just seems to get Walter and everyone around him into escapade after escapade.  This time Walt hits the high seas and when his condition wafts through the decks he’s banished with the stinky cheese. 


When catastrophe strikes only Walter can save the day…all the while trying to digest that darn cheese.
