It’s fall y’all! The light has changed, the days are shorter, and the days feel crispy and warm at the same time. You know what else happened this month? The Puppy turned 3! I can’t believe he’s been part of our family for 3 years now, and none of us remembers a time when he was not there making us play go-and-fetch 24/7.
To celebrate The Puppy’s birthday I am giving away ONE physical copy of Dogs and Their People by Barkpost and published by Penguin Random House in the US on 18th October. If, like me, all you need to light up your day is to look for pictures/videos of cute dogs on the Internet – Golden Retrievers and Christmas lights anyone? – then this book is perfect for you. And if you are a cat person, then this book may be perfect for one of those crazy dog people in your life!
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 (like Putnam publicist Katie’s Newfoundland, Hank, on page 228!); 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.
