The Zen of Dog seeks to answer the universal questions: "How can I be happy?" and "How do I learn to love unconditionally?"
"We can learn a lot from dogs. The sweet balm of puppy love can soothe a tender hearts," said Jordan Smith. "Often the way to inner peace and contentment is as close as a cool tile floor, a rub on the belly or a long walk with someone we love."
Jordan Smith is the author of the dog Zen humor books Life is Short. Eat Biscuits!, published by Santa Monica Press, and Letters To A Young Puppy.
Both books are based on the Website eatbiscuits.com. The company produces, markets and licenses dog Zen humor products.
Jordan Smith is currently working on a children's book about the adventures of Elvis the Karate Dog and his friends Pirate, a one-eyed miniature daschund, and eight-year old Little Buddy. The book is illustrated by Italian artist Roberta Morucci, noted for her portraits of the entertainer Cher.
