Summary:
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like in a house where pets are number one and human visitors should expect to leave with some fur (and sometimes feathers) on their clothes, Something Furry Underfoot is the book for you. Something Furry Underfoot is my humorous, touching memoir about raising a whole bunch of pets my husband wanted, including frogs, iguanas, hedgehogs, ferrets, hamsters, gerbils, mice, guinea pigs, mynah birds and tropical fish. And, well, encouraged by his efforts, I admit to bringing in the stray cat, the rescued rabbits and the domestic duckling found wandering in somebody’s front yard. My book contains 50 tips about pets, making it a bit of a pet primer, too. And best of all, some proceeds will benefit animal rescue organizations.

Q & A:

The best thing about writing this book?
I love hearing from readers, especially the ones who say they were inspired to write their own memoir about their pets.

Where did you get your idea for this story?
I began just documenting the pets my husband and I raised over the course of about 19 years, but as I wrote I realized that what I learned from all those pets might just be of help to other people. For example we rescued two guinea pigs, and they were for my 13-year-old step daughter. Now, the average life span of a guinea pig is 5-8 years, but ours lived 11 and 12 years. So that means that I took care of the guinea pigs while the child for whom the pigs were purchased went off to college. That’s why one tip in my book is that whatever pet comes into the home should be one the parents like and are willing to help care for, because the most responsible person is the one that usually fills in.

What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Write the words “No Doubt” on whatever device you write on. Because the more time you spend doubting yourself–whether what you’re writing will sell, whether it’s your best work, whether it’s even worth doing–gets in the way of getting the job done. Other advice: plan on spending a lot of time marketing.

What is your favorite book?
The civil war trilogy by Jeff and Michael Shaara

Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
soda or beer, actually, if it’s available

Summary:
The number one objective of this book is to tackle the most common dog problems that owners face. To teach your dog the skills he/she needs to be well trained, obedient, and happy. To teach all of these skills using only positive training methods. We want to teach our dogs in a way that is fun and engaging for them. It has been scientifically proven that dogs learn best through these means. This book will never ask you to harm or strike your dog, because it’s inhumane and that’s not what we believe in. The problem with physical punishment of dogs; is that it is after the fact. Your dog cannot make the association between the wrong behavior and the punishment. Rather, we need to set our dogs up to be successful. The key goal of this book is to channel this energy into a positive outlet and create avenues in which your dog can excel.
