A Dog Named Boo

By Lisa Edwards

Harlequin (September 2012, hardcover)

292 pages

This book tells the story of boo, a mischievous rescue pup who overcame a few bumps and health challenges to find his way into the lives and hearts of so many people working as a therapy dog. The book’s author, Lisa Edwards, is a professional dog trainer as well as having served as a Pet Partners Instructor and Evaluator for more than 10 years. In A Dog Named Boo, Lisa shares the journey she, Boo and her other dogs have taken with a warmth and understanding, and you’ll also find a wealth of training tips and excellent advice on making visits with a therapy dog. What is special about this book is that Lisa opens up to how powerful the human-animal bond is especially when facing life challenges. A wonderful, heartfelt read.

A Dog Named Boo has been named one of the Top Ten Memoirs of 2012 by Publisher’s Weekly! (And Boo’s got his own website, too!)

A Dog Named Boo has been named one of the Top Ten Memoirs of 2012 by Publisher’s Weekly – and we gave the book its own website to celebrate!

Things has been super busy here all Summer but I wanted to take a moment to say that I am pleased, proud, and a bit humbled that Publisher’s Weekly has named A Dog Named Boo one of the Top Ten Memoirs of 2012!

A tremendous amount of effort went into writing A Dog Named Boo and it’s extremely gratifying to have that work acknowledged on such a high level in such a competitive market!

(If you’ve never heard of Publisher’s Weekly, it is to book publishing as Variety is to show business.)

As we get closer and closer to the release date for A Dog Named Boo there will be a ton of stuff coming down the pike – so much so that we’ve decided to give the book it’s own website!

For the past couple of weeks Lawrence has been busy putting the new website together behind the scenes and now it’s ready for its debut – I’m really happy with what he put together and hope you will be, too!
