Dinner with the Dog

Delicious Recipes for All the Family Including the Dog!

The idea for this book came when my new puppy started going off his food. Being a foodie myself, I found it hard to see him hungry and not wanting to eat his own food. I eat pretty healthily myself, so every time I made myself a meal, I looked the food up on the internet to see if puppy could share it with me, and a lot of it he could. In this book, you'll find 4 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 4 dinners, and 4 snacks, and with each idea I give you a little bit of extra info that you'll hopefully find useful and interesting. Additionally I have included a full list of foods that are good for dogs and others that are ok or controversial, and of course the ones that everyone agrees are a definite no. You'll see that the meals are named after dogs, and these are dogs from my life - from the past, present, and potentially future! After each meal there is a photo and a little info about the namesake, which I think you'll enjoy. I hope that you find this book interesting and that you have fun cooking up some yummy meals and snacks for your fur baby - if you want to see some video footage of my little guy, you can come and see me on You Tube- www.youtube.com/mrsgingerslife Enjoy!

In the Colorado mountain town of Steamboat Springs there must be three hundred dogs. Jack's malamute, McKinley, is the leader of them all. But Jack, being human, has no way of knowing that. For him, his family's dog is just a great pal. And protector. Jack cannot know that Redburn, a "leash-licking" Irish setter, is McKinley's rival for the job of head dog. The boy cannot know, with the sudden hillside appearance of a she-wolf, Lupin, that not only McKinley's job -- but his life -- is in danger. Lupin's message: Dogs free yourselves from mankind. Come join us, we who need you to replenish our diminishing wolf pack in the wild. But imagine how a good dog, loyal to his human pup, would hear Lupin's call! McKinley's thrilling story tells itself, as first he and the boy together encounter Lupin in a canyon perfect for an old-time ambush, and later as they try to save her from both Redburn and a neighbor, a vicious man armed with a gun and a grudge. No one -- not even McKinley -- can foresee the end.

Confined to a wheelchair but still want a dog - is that a good idea? Indeed it is, as the author - who’s wheelchair dependant - ably demonstrates. Here, everything that mobility-impaired potential dog owners need to consider to enable them to own and care for their very own canine companion, even if finances are restricted; or they do not have their own car or assistance, is described and illustrated in detail. Wheelchair and mobility scooter users face their own particular challenges when it comes to dog ownership: how will they walk their dog; train and teach it; play games with it, and all importantly, pick up that poop? From his unique viewpoint, the author answers all of these questions and concerns, and more besides, allowing readers to assess and determine whether they can share their special lifestyle with a dog, and what they can do in preparation of this happy circumstance.

Crate Training Your Dog

Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-267

Author: Pat Storer

Publisher: Storey Publishing

ISBN: 1603423818

Category: Pets

Page: 32

View: 7393

Ease Your Mind And Indulge Your Dog! If you want your dog to feel safe and secure in your home, it's time to crate train! A crate is designed as much for a dog's well-being as it is for the owner's convenience and peace of mind. For example, a crate keeps a curious puppy away from chemicals under the kitchen sink, gives a sick or convalescing dog a quiet place to rest, and secures a rambunctious dog during car trips. Crate training works because dogs, like their wild ancestors, desire a snug "den" that affords security and privacy. When dogs are crate trained properly, they accept and even enjoy their sequestered time. Pat Storer shows you how to maintain a positive, loving attitude while being firm and consistent with your dog. With Storer's advice on choosing the right crate, step-by-step instructions, and tips for dealing with crate-related behavior problems, both you and your dog will find crate training to be a simple, successful experience.

Die offizielle Biografie des NIKE-Gründers

Author: Phil Knight

Publisher: FinanzBuch Verlag

ISBN: 3862489280

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 448

View: 5352

Als junger, abenteuerlustiger Business-School-Absolvent auf der Suche nach einer Herausforderung lieh Phil Knight sich von seinem Vater 50 Dollar und gründete eine Firma mit einer klaren Mission: qualitativ hochwertige, aber preiswerte Laufschuhe aus Japan importieren. In jenem ersten Jahr, 1963, verkaufte Knight Laufschuhe aus dem Kofferraum seines Plymouth Valiant heraus und erzielte einen Umsatz von 8000 Dollar. Heute liegen die Jahresumsätze von Nike bei über 30 Milliarden Dollar. In unserem Zeitalter der Start-ups hat sich Knights Firma Nike als Maßstab aller Dinge etabliert und sein "Swoosh" ist längst mehr als nur ein Logo. Es ist ein Symbol von Geschmeidigkeit und Größe, eines der wenigen Icons, die in jedem Winkel unseres Erdballs sofort wiedererkannt werden. Aber Knight selbst, der Mann hinter dem Swoosh, ist immer ein Geheimnis geblieben. Jetzt erzählt er endlich seine Geschichte. Seine Memoiren sind überraschend, bescheiden, ungeschönt, humorvoll und handwerklich meisterhaft. Den Anfang markiert eine klassische Situation am Scheideweg. Der 24-jährige Knight bereist als Rucksacktourist Asien, Europa und Afrika, ihn bewegen die ganz großen philosophischen Fragen des Lebens. Und er entscheidet sich für einen unkonventionellen Lebensweg. Anstatt für ein großes etabliertes Unternehmen zu arbeiten, beschließt er, etwas ganz Eigenes zu schaffen – etwas, das neu, dynamisch und anders ist. En détail beschreibt Knight die vielen unberechenbaren Risiken, mit denen er sich auf seinem Weg konfrontiert sah, die niederschmetternden Rückschläge, die skrupellosen Konkurrenten, die zahllosen Zweifler und Widersacher, die abweisenden Banker, die etlichen Male, wo er knapp einer Katastrophe entging, ebenso wie seine vielen triumphalen Erfolge.
