North Palm Beach, FL, United States, 2006/03/16 - Letters to a Young Puppy, a new book by Amy Jordan, author of Life is Short. Eat Biscuits, offers puppy chow for the dog lover's soul.
The book has been called "delightful puppy poetry." Humorous letters and poems provide gentle instructions about life to a young puppy that are equally suitable for dog lovers, poets, parents and friends.
"We can learn a lot from dogs. The sweet balm of puppy love can soothe a tender hearts," said Jordan. "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."
Excerpts from Letters to a Young Puppy:
My dear puppy,
I have nothing to teach you, save a few basics
like sit, stay and heel, all meant to protect you
from the occasional folly of a careless man
You, on the other hand, by nature are the embodiment
of essential happiness and unconditional love
Let me open my heart and embrace your instincts
Teach me dog.
The Dog Ethicist
Q. If a dog sneaks a biscuit in the middle of the night and no one hears the box open, does it make him a bad dog?
A. It depends. Did you step on the cat on your way to the pantry?
