The Dogs that Changed my Life
Author: Pete Wicks
Publisher: Random House
The only way is a rescue dog. French Bulldogs are the UK’s most popular dog breed, and nobody loves them more than Pete Wicks. Although he’s most famous for his appearances on The Only Way is Essex, he’s never happier than when he’s with his best friend – no, not James Lock – his French Bulldog Eric. But their story hasn’t been all walkies and biscuits. In 2016, Pete was devastated to suddenly lose his adored French Bulldog Ernest at just three years old. The Wolfpack was torn apart. Left to pick up the pieces with Eric, he realised that he knew very little about the breed and the reason why Ern died so young. In honour of his old pal, Pete teamed up with animal charities and uncovered the shocking unregulated breeding and illegal importation that led to the life-threatening illness Ernest suffered from. And the problem is widespread. But if you want one of the best companion dogs you could ever own, a pup that is affectionate and playful (or some would say mischievous), then a French Bulldog is perfect for you. Here Pete reveals the many tips he’s learned for a happy life with a Frenchie, and how we can all help to eradicate the problems facing the breed. Most touchingly, for the first time he bravely recounts that love and grief we all feel for a special dog. This is a book that EVERY dog lover needs to read.

Pit Bulls, America's Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet
Author: Ken Foster
Filled with inspiring stories and photographs, this heartfelt tribute to the pit bull celebrates one of America’s most popular yet misunderstood dogs. Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes. In truth, pit bulls are innately wonderful family pets, as capable of love and good deeds as any other type of dog. Setting the record straight, Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in I’m a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated, tenderly written tribute to this most misunderstood of canines. Founder of the Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible pit bull ownership in New Orleans, and the author of two acclaimed books about abandoned dogs, Foster has made it his mission to bring overlooked canines into the limelight. I’m a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this particularly maligned breed. A century ago, the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loving companions for children. More recently, pit bulls have been portrayed by the media as stereotypes of everything they are not. Foster shatters that reputation through moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, and educators, not to mention as loving pets. Foster also profiles many pit bull lovers, from Helen Keller and Dr. Seuss to actor Todd Cerveris, who took his pit bull on tour with him for the musical Spring Awakening. Proving that there’s much to love and nothing to fear, I’m a Good Dog restores the pit bull to its rightful place as friend, family member, athlete and entertainer.

Furry friends meet photo booths in this quirky photography book that captures all the cute canine action when the leashes come off and the dogs are the star of the show. If dogs could take selfies, it might look something like Tails from the Booth. For this adorable collection of photographs, Lynn Terry draws on more than twenty years of professional photography experience to capture the most endearing moments between canine companions: A couple of pitbulls grinning widely at the camera. Two saggy-faced bulldogs bumping jowls. A Pomeranian, an English bulldog, and a Boston terrier dog-piling (of course) on top of each other. These pictures show the countless ways dogs will ham it up in front of a camera, and that more dogs in a photo booth = even more fun! With all the charm of Underwater Dogs and Shake, Tails from the Booth will make you laugh out loud at all the awkward and endearing ways dogs make friends with each other.
