In this fun, inviting look at a serious topic—codependence—Nancy L. Johnston shares the life lessons she learned from her observations of the relationship behaviors exhibited by her pet collie, Daisy: "The book began by my noticing behaviors in Daisy that resemble the codependent behaviors in me, which I have been working to moderate through my recovery. Daily I am struck by our tendencies to attend to others, to herd, to overreact." Johnston's delightful book examines twelve specific behaviors that, in their extreme form, can be codependent. It also offers new information on codependence and help for it, including the latest research-supported findings, so that readers can understand "What am I doing that is not producing the relationship results I really want?" Nancy L. Johnston, MS, LPC, LSATP, is a licensed psychotherapist and licensed substance abuse treatment practitioner in private practice in Lexington, Virginia. She has thirty-three years of clinical experience addressing a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. Johnston specializes in treating adolescents and adults, and has always had a special interest in addiction and its effects on both individuals and family systems. Her first book, Disentangle: When You've Lost Your Self in Someone Else, was published by Central Recovery Press in 2011.

This narration of a life experience and the deep love shared with two special canines of the wolf persuasion comes from the heart. In sharing the story, the author hopes to connect with those who have known the amazing relationship that humans can have with animals of another species, and also awaken others to both appreciate and respect the uncanny sensitivity and intelligence that other species do possess. People would often ask me with a startled look on their face, “You mean you have real wolves?” I would simply say, “Actually they have me.” ALWAYS, I WAS AWAKENED BY THE GIFT OF A SONG • • • I LEARNED TO PLAY AGAIN LIKE A HAPPY CHILD UNINHIBITED, CAREFREE • • • THEY WERE IN THEIR ELEMENT RUNNING, PLAYING BUT MOST OF ALL, THERE WAS THE DANCE.... ON A CRYSTAL DAY, I CAN STILL SEE THEM • • • AND SO, YOU GO AS WITH THE TRAIL OF SMOKE WHISPERING FROM THE CANDLE AS IT GOES OUT WITH THE LIGHT AND LOVES OF MY LIFE “I look forward to holding it (the book) in my hands, and through the book for others to know and love these two great hearted beings.” —Susana Andrews

The Dogs of My Life is a collection of stories about just that; the dogs of my life. I grew up with dogs and believe I learned, and am still learning, many lessons from them. Over the years I have thought about these lessons and what they teach me about the Kingdom of God. Isn't it just like God to use the simplest analogies, (parables), to show us the greatest truths? Each day I marvel at the things my dogs do that either teach me or remind me of something God would have me remember or know. As you read these stories, I hope you too will begin to look at your pets in a whole new way. Look at them as teachers. You will be surprised at what you learn.

If dogs could write, this is what they'd say: "MY LIFE is a one-of-a-kind autobiography, not only because it describes my interesting and unusual life, but also because I am a dog. And as far as I know, this is the first-ever canine autobiography." Science fiction writer James C. Glass says, "If you've ever had a dog for a pet and suffered through its loss, this book will be an emotional trip for you. I enjoyed Rushie's adventures, with a laugh, and yes, more than a few tears. Enjoy the ride."

One second in time may separate the great athlete from the merely good. Seb Coe has made every second count. From an early age he has been driven to be the best at everything he does. Since the moment Coe stood alongside a 'scrubby' municipal running track in Sheffield, he knew that sport could change his life. It did. Breaking an incredible twelve world records and three of them in just forty-one days, Seb became the only athlete to take gold at 1500 metres in two successive Olympic Games (Moscow 1980 and Los Angeles 1984). The same passion galvanised Coe in 2005, when he led Britain's bid to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Games to London. He knew that if we won it would regenerate an East London landscape and change the lives of thousands of young people. It has. Born in Hammersmith and coached by his engineer father, Coe went from a secondary modern school and Loughborough University to become the fastest middle-distance runner of his generation. His rivalry with Steve Ovett gripped a nation and made Britain feel successful at a time of widespread social discontent. From sport Coe transferred his ideals to politics, serving in John Major's Conservative government from 1992 to 1997 and developing 'sharp elbows' to become chief of staff to William Hague, leader of the Party from 1997 to 2001 and finally a member of the House of Lords. Running My Life is in turns exhilarating, inspiring, amusing, and extremely moving. Everyone knows where Sebastian Coe ended up. Few people realise how he got there. This is his personal journey.

This enhanced eBook edition—containing more than sixty photographs and eight videos (including some exclusive, never-before-seen footage)—gives a vivid and up-close view of the lovable dogs, chickens, donkeys, and sheep of Bedlam Farm.* From the acclaimed author of A Good Dog, Dog Days, and Going Home comes this eBook original—a poignant memoir that celebrates Jon Katz’s beloved border collie, Rose, and their transformative years together. “I like to say you get the dog you need,” Jon Katz writes, “and I don’t think any human ever needed a dog more than I needed Rose in the fall of 2003.” That year, Katz embarked on a quixotic quest, moving from the suburbs of New Jersey to a sprawling farm in upstate New York to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. And by his side was Rose, his unswervingly loyal and unflappable new dog. Whether herding sheep on the rolling hillsides, rounding up the neighbors’ stray cows, or rescuing lambs on a freezing winter night, Rose had a nimble mind and a great love for work. Never wanting to be coddled, she watched over Bedlam Farm with singular focus and efficiency, protecting Katz and his menagerie from wild coyotes and menacing storms. Yet Rose saved Katz in more ways than he ever imagined. As he struggled to manage the farm’s daily dramas—and continued to seek his true sense of purpose—Rose connected him to his deeper humanity and a more authentic life. With warmth, insight, and emotional honesty, Jon Katz has written a joyful remembrance of a one-of-a-kind dog. The Story of Rose reaffirms the profound bond people share with their pets, and the ways that animals indelibly shape our lives. “Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. . . . With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful insights.”—John Grogan, author of Marley & Me Includes moving excerpts from Going Home, and from Jon Katz’s upcoming short-story collection, Dancing Dogs. *Video may not play on all readers.

Sarah-Jane Le Blanc grew up with no particular interest in animals. A down-to-earth mother of two with a job working with disadvantaged children, other people's pets didn't feature very highly in her thoughts - until an event in 2005 which changed the direction of her life. Over the course of several evenings, just before going to sleep, Sarah Jane kept getting a clear image in her mind of a dog called Dan, who had a sad story and was trying to contact someone. This experience led her to investigate animal/human communication. From taking on her first 'client' - a claustrophobic horse - Sarah-Jane's skills went from strength to strength. She soon realised she had a rare gift for animal 'clairsentience', being able to detect the emotions and past traumas of those who cannot speak, and to heal them with her thoughts. Sarah-Jane tells her amazing story of how she became a real-life Doctor Dolittle. She uses what she calls 'soul-to-soul' therapy, which has helped countless pets and their owners resolve problems. Sarah-Jane's message is that animals suffer emotional pain and anxiety, just like we do. Her work proves that we can reach out across the species to communicate with the creatures that share our lives, as they too, can help us to heal ourselves.

The Other End of the Leash shares a revolutionary, new perspective on our relationship with dogs, focusing on our behavior in comparison with that of dogs. An applied animal behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell looks at humans as just another interesting species, and muses about why we behave the way we do around our dogs, how dogs might interpret our behavior, and how to interact with our dogs in ways that bring out the best in our four-legged friends. After all, although humans and dogs share a remarkable relationship that is unique in the animal world, we are still two entirely different species, each shaped by our individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (like wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation. The Other End of the Leash demonstrates how even the slightest changes in your voice and the way you stand can help your dog understand what you want. Once you start to think about your own behavior from the perspective of your dog, you’ll understand why much of what appears to be doggy-disobedience is simply a case of miscommunication. Inside you will learn • How to use your voice so that your dog is more likely to do what you ask. • Why “getting dominance” over your dog is a bad idea. • Why “rough and tumble primate play” can lead to trouble–and how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of trouble. • How dogs and humans share personality types–and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than “alphawannabees!” In her own insightful, compelling style, Patricia McConnell combines wonderful true stories about people and dogs with a new, accessible scientific perspective on how they should behave around each other. This is a book that strives to help you make the most of life with your dog, and to prevent problems that might arise in that most rewarding of relationships. From the Hardcover edition.

If you’ve ever seen a dog in a television commercial, there’s a pretty good chance it was a Border Collie. Or, if you’ve watched herding competitions, you’ve probably seen a Border Collie controlling the herd. First and foremost, Border Collies are sheep herders. But when they’re not on the clock, they can make excellent companions. They’re energetic, playful, and extremely intelligent. They’re also sensitive, affectionate, and adorable. Even though this breed is still vital to livestock owners, we will focus on the Border Collie as a pet in this book. Intelligence is perhaps the most prominent trait of the Border Collie. In the pasture, this dog can understand specific commands and respond accordingly. They also excel at obedience competitions and agility runs because they can pick up new skills quickly and respond to challenging commands. This book will give you the information you need to jump-start your ownership journey, including: Border Collie History Choosing a Border Collie Preparing your Home for your Border Collie Bringing Home your Border Collie Being a Puppy Parent Housetraining Socializing with People and Animals Border Collies and Your Other Pets Physical and Mental Exercise Training your Border Collie Basic Commands Dealing With Unwanted Behaviors Traveling with Border Collies Nutrition Grooming your Border Collie Basic Health Care Advanced Border Collie Health and Aging Dog Care This book will become your go-to guide throughout your BC’s life, as it has helpful hints and reminders that will prove to be practical far into their adulthood. Border Collies are an absolute joy to have as pets. These dogs are beautiful, intelligent, and silly. They love to test their owners and call the shots, but at the end of the day, they’re capable of following orders. You’ll never find another dog quite like them, as they’re capable of running around one minute and snuggling up beside you the next. All your Border Collie wants is a purpose. While they may drive you nuts when they’re bored, it’s amazing to watch them work. Whether your Border Collie’s “job” is to tend livestock, chase the rabbits and birds from your garden, or just be a loving companion, you’ll find that your Border Collie will do anything for the love and affection with which you pay them.
