Hi there, everyone!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
Nice to see you all again...viturally of course. Just wanted to say WELCOME to all the new followers (~waves~) and I hope you enjoy your time on the site....and of course to all my "tried and true" followers.....YOU ROCK, you know it, though it never hurts to say it again. Let's get this show on the road, shall we?
To those of you reading this on 05/05/10, HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO to you! What's that? You don't know what Cinco de Mayo is? Silly me...here's the Wiki link for a brief official description, but in general terms, the phrase literally means "the fifth of May" and is a day that we celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. Ever wonder why you tend to see a few more fiestas on May 5th? Now you know! I bet you're wondering on how Earth I am going to tie this information in to the book discussed today....ah, ye of little faith.
It is with our little friend the chihuahua that I am able to do so. You know them as the cute little guys that shake and shiver but love us all the same. With tiny bodies and big hearts, their bulgy little eyes glimmer with cuteness and a tinge of mischief...no wonder many households make them a part of their families. That's right! Dogs are a part of many families, counted as a "fuzzy child" to many an owner. Speaking of the little fuzzies, the book featured today (see, it's rolling right into to) is not only about a dog, but well....you'll see. Today's book of choice is....
Bad to the Bone:
Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger
of Dogster.com's "For the Love of Dog" Blog
Who is Bo Hoefinger? Why has he written a book with such an unusual (and attention grabbing...for me anyway) title? Bo is the author (stay calm....I'm about to elaborate on that....) of this book but he is not like any you've met before. Whether you stalk local author stops of your favorite writers or inundate their email boxes with words of praise, I guarantee you have not met a writer of his pedigree...I mean background... before. Wanna know how I know? (Just cuz....no, I'm kidding!) He's a dog!
Special thanks to Paula at AME for the review copy. (THANKS!) For more information about this book and more, check out their site on BookBlogs.NING or follow along on Twitter! Of course, Bo is online as well...more information on his adventures can be found at Dogster, his author page, his blog, and yes...even on Twitter! (Yep...guess you I just added to my "following" list....)
Calling all pet owners! I'm sure that you've got a million and one stories about your little fuzzies, I know I do. Care to share one of those funny moments with us? The comments are open....feel free to SPEAK...I mean share!
Hasta Manana....that is to say until tomorrow....happy reading!
