Find­ing Gobi By Dion Leonard

This amaz­ing true tale will re­store your faith in mir­a­cles. When ul­tra­ma­rathon run­ner Dion Leonard sets out to com­pete in a 150-mile race through China’s Gobi Desert, he doesn’t ex­pect to find a friend for life. But dur­ing the race, he meets a small stray dog who, be­yond all odds, keeps pace with him for nearly 80 chal­leng­ing miles, over the Tian Shan Moun­tains and across seem­ingly end­less sand dunes. Though Leonard is a sea­soned run­ner com­mit­ted to his per­sonal best, he none­the­less finds him­self spend­ing pre­cious time and re­sources on the safety and well­be­ing of his new com­pan­ion. But when Gobi goes miss­ing, the depth of Dion’s com­mit­ment to his new friend is chal­lenged in an unimag­ined way. This beau­ti­ful and touch­ing story will stay with you even af­ter the last page is turned.

Wag­ging Through The Snow By Lau­rien Beren­son

Dur­ing the Christ­mas rush, teacher Me­lanie Travis is in desperate need of some wellde­served rest, but respite is not in the cards… Af­ter Me­lanie’s brother and ex-hus­band make a spon­ta­neous bid on an old pine tree farm in need of a lot of work, Me­lanie finds her­self on a for­saken tree farm dur­ing the cold­est month of the year, her Poo­dle and the rest of her fam­ily in tow. Can things get worse? In­deed they can and do when Me­lanie finds a Mal­tese whim­per­ing in the snow… next to the corpse of a man. How did this man die, and who is the killer? And who can Me­lanie trust? This ex­cit­ing Christ­mas who­dunit is the per­fect page­turner to curl up with as the weather gets cooler.

The Ul­ti­mate Pet Health Guide: Break­through Nu­tri­tion and In­te­gra­tive Care for Dogs and Cats By Gary Richter, M.S. D.V.M.

This fas­ci­nat­ing and help­ful guide is full of med­i­cal rec­om­men­da­tions sup­ported by sci­en­tific re­search and years of suc­cess­ful out­comes in Dr. Richter’s clin­i­cal prac­tice. His ap­proach is not to ad­here to one heal­ing modal­ity, such as holis­tic or west­ern medicine, but rather to ex­am­ine both mod­ern and tra­di­tional medicine from a va­ri­ety of cul­tures in or­der to find what ac­tu­ally works. With its tried and true sug­ges­tions for bet­ter health, as well as treat­ments for a whole host of health prob­lems, this a great read for any­one in­ter­ested in the well­ness of their pets.
