The world of dog ownership in Britain has always attracted a good number of enthusiasts - some would say eccentrics - who are passionate about their pets. Whereas in previous decades owners had only dog obedience classes and dog shows to cater for their interests, there is now a huge industry offering a wealth of canine-centred activities, such as extreme grooming, dog dancing schools, luxury dog spas and bespoke designers offering a baffling choice of pet accessories. Our dog population is now bigger than ever, and Dog World is far more complicated than it seems from the outside. It is a world of extreme competition, slavish devotion and delicate protocol. What do you do when your hound gets inappropriately frisky with a fellow dog-walker's pet? Who has right of way on the towpath between a jogger and a greyhound, and what kind of cake do you bake for a puppy shower? Popular columnist Michele Hanson conducts a hilarious and fascinating investigation into the British and their dogs across all walks of life - from the pampered pooches of suburbia to the bad-boy breeds of the urban zone - and meets owners across the spectrum of delightful, bizarre, aspirational, ghastly and just plain crazy. Absolutely Barkingis not only a book for dog-lovers; it is also a uniquely witty insight into an aspect of British life that is more popular than it has ever been.

One part personal quest to discover running greatness after age 50, one part investigation into what the women's running boom can teach athletes about becoming fitter, stronger, and faster as we age, Older, Faster, Stronger is an engrossing narrative sure to inspire women of all ages. A former overweight smoker turned marathoner, Margaret Webb runs with elite older women, follows a high-performance training plan devised by experts, and examines research that shows how endurance training can stall aging. She then tests herself against the world's best older runners at the world masters games in Torino, Italy. Millions of women have taken up running in recent decades--the first generation of women to train in great numbers. Women are qualifying for the Olympic marathon in their 50s, running 100-mile ultra marathons in their 60s, completing Ironmans in their 80s, competing for world masters records in their 90s. What are the secrets of these ageless wonders? How do they get stronger and faster long after their "athletic prime"? Is there an evolutionary reason women can maintain endurance into advanced years? Webb immerses herself in these questions as she as she trains to see just how fast she can get after 50.

When a little girl gets trapped within a terrible storm, the mouse size creatures of Willow Creek risk paw and tail to rescue her as they are bombarded by ravenous crows, hampered by a battalion of ants, besieged by angry bees, attacked by a gruesome mole, flooded by a raging sprinkler system, and still they have yet to travel a single block.

To bring them home again, the pint-size varmints soar off on a dazzling adventure that is chalk full of wonder and danger. But the question remains, can these oddball creatures hold it together long enough to save the day? It is a scary world out there after all, especially when youre the perfect size to be gobbled up.

Human interest account by Lt. Col. Ladd, a retired Marine infantry officer who saw extensive combat in the Pacific with the 2nd Marine Division at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan & Tinian. His story is unique in that he thoroughly retraced all his unit's campaign areas during two trips. The second time he again led some of his old platoon for a sentimental two weeks while they reverted to their youth, reliving foxhole buddy days of adventure, humor & sadness. He met island natives of his generation & Japanese veterans also revisiting the sites. A different perspective developed from these contacts, subsequent correspondence & a follow-up trip to Japan. This labor of love culminates ten years of travel, interviews & extensive research. "By far the most lucid & moving account of the Battle of Tarawa that I have read since Robert Sherrod's first person depiction written many years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed the book & hope many of our younger Marines are reading it as well," LGEN William Keys, USMC (RET.), former 2nd Division Commander. "I've learned more about the Gaudalcanal & Tarawa campaigns from FAITHFUL WARRIORS than many of the other books I've read combined," Milas Hinshaw Productions, Television & Motion Pictures.

When the author H. Peter Hoffmans wife, Doris, developed Alzheimers, a hospice volunteer was assigned to visit her once per week. Carole Fischer was not only a great help for the couple, but also paved the way to the creation of this memoir when she asked Hoffman how he met Doris. Spanning from 1925 through 2002, The Wink of an Eye Volume I chronicles the love shared between the author and his wife. Through vivid narration, Hoffman relives the many unforgettable moments he shared with his loving, wise, and beautiful wife. Amid time and distance, amid the terror of World War II and the pain of Alzheimers, the couple managed to keep their vow of sticking up and being faithful to each other until death parted them. Lush with nostalgic letters and photographs, The Wink of an Eye Volume I is a fascinating and inspiring true tale of a love that stood resilient through the test of time.

“Veni, Vidi, Vici taps into the human desire to connect with the animal world nicely. Jackson knows her subject intimately, and that comes through loud and clear in Veni’s story.” BlueInk Review Four Stars (out of Five) “Jackson uses a simple, straightforward writing style to convey Veni’s thoughts. There are no fancy words or detailed thought processes, but the absence of these elements only highlights the simple-minded nature most dogs have, without suggesting that Veni isn’t smart in a very canine way.” Foreword-Clarion Reviews “Veni is larger than life, and her voice makes for fun reading.” Kirkus Reviews Veni is a Pumi puppy from Hungary, but she has recently been adopted by a new family from the United States and moves to their ranch in California. In this collection of letters, Veni describes her new life for her auntie back home. At first, she doesn’t think it’s fair that she has to leave her old home, learn English, and learn to get along with her new doggie housemates—Levi, another Pumi who teases her, and Demi, a standard poodle who hates her right from the start. What’s more, it seems her new human mom trains dogs for a living, and now Veni has to learn to be on her best behavior all the time. And that’s not easy for a dog who likes to get into so much trouble! She also exchanges letters with some puppy pen pals and runs the risk of getting sent to Soledog Dog Prison due to her wicked ways. Written with humor from a puppy’s perspective, Veni, Vidi, Vici shares the crazy events of one dog’s first years with her new family.
