2 paws up: Learning from Dogs

 Learning from Dogs: new nonfiction book

Happily a gift arrived a week ago from a friend. Paul Handover’s nonfiction book came and now has a place on my desk. Having connected through our blogs on WordPress.com. We shared a few chats on the phone. Our conversations led to Handover requesting a book endorsement for his Learning from Dogs: Innate Wisdom from Man’s Best Friend,  his nonfiction on the wisdom of dogs.

As Agatha Christie’s famous detective, Poirot likes to put it, “My little gray cells…” so in an email to Paul, I wrote, “‘My little gray cells’ are spinning from jazzy ideas for your book blurb.”
“…fine insights on dogs by  Handover, who loves them, lives with dozens and learns from dogs.”

A rich resource of ideas, experience and knowledge, both large in scope.

Handover delivers in terms of descriptive of canine behavior, historical and detailed memoir..

“Paul Handover’s book will open your eyes to man’s best friend. Forget that bogus male alpha dog or alpha wolf. Make way for the three dogs needed for a healthy dog pack. Make peace with multiple dogs in your family’s life.”

  1. Paul’s book sounds like a real winner, Deborah — and a much needed volume for the dog world as well! So nice of you to blurb it and then advertise it here. Good karma shall come your way. 🙂


    1. So cool of you to stop by, read and comment. I love your current avatar. Did you draw or paint it? Thanks for the good karma note. Some new women friends started a “super-fun-positive” daily greeting like Wonderful Wednesday or Terrific Tuesday, any ideas what to add to our game? I know you are super creative.


      1. No problem, Deborah — I enjoy stopping by your blog and seeing what’s up! Your blog looks great, btw! I’ve been writing all day, so my brain is “mush,” but if I come up with something creative I’ll be sure to let you know. 🙂 For now, how about “Thursday Thanks!” 🙂

      2. I like “Thursday Thanks” & this morning I told myself to expect something silly and satisfying, thus “Satisfied Silly Saturday.” 😎 bra thanks for saying the new-to-me Franklin theme looks good, we artists often work super hard for better skills and creations😘


  2. Deborah, I’m very grateful for your kind endorsement. Thank you! Could I just add that 50% of the net proceeds from the sale of my book, in all formats, are being donated to our local Rogue Valley Humane Society. Already we have raised more than $500 for what will be known as The Pharaoh Fund.
