Charlie Bear here with notice of a cool new book. (It would be really cool if it was a new book about ME, but not this time.)
This book is from an author that Mom Peep really likes. She likes him for a bunch of reasons:
1. He’s a great writer. Mom has read tons of his books.
2. He wrote about his CCI (Canine Companions for Independence) dog, Trixie, and that was an awesome book.
3. Now he’s written about another CCI dog, Anna.
ASK ANNA: Advice for the Furry and Forlorn is Dean Koontz’s newest book. It’s 96 pages and is an 8″ x 8″ size (one of those odd dog-book sizes, huh?).
Dean Koontz’s dog Anna was raised by Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing assistance dogs. The Koontz family later adopted Anna, and 100% of what Dean receives from the sale of ASK ANNA will be donated to CCI.
Blurbs about it from the Amazon site:
Dean Koontz is one of the world’s biggest selling authors. Anna Koontz is Dean’s remarkable dog who is poised to follow in her dad’s footsteps with her first advice book for canines. She will soon become canine columnist to the world!
With her superior intellect, sharp wit, a warm and fuzzy heart, Anna Koontz debuts her talent as an advice columnist in her seminal work ASK ANNA: ADVICE FOR THE FURRY AND FORLORN. Some of her best advice: take time daily for ball-chasing and belly rubs – the keys (along with sausages) to true canine joy.
Learn more about the problems that plague Anna’s clients and be inspired by how she counsels them. Also delight in Dean’s just slightly skewed perspective on the importance of dogs throughout history. Without their advice, we humans would be in even worse trouble than we are today. They’re heaven-sent (what is dog spelled backwards?!)
