Autumn is winding down here in New Hampshire…..we had some beautiful foliage but it didn’t seem to last long, and the leaves are falling off the trees now. Here are a couple of photos I took. The tree is right in our yard, and my favorite. Cardigan Mountain, seen below, is in our town. The photo was taken from the other side of the mountain at the apple orchard where my sister and I went to pick apples. Baking pies and apple dog treats are in the plans for our long Columbus Day weekend!
As the days cool off, we might spend a little more time inside (plus we’ve had a lot of rain this last week). One of my favorite rainy day activities is reading. I don’t have a lot of time for reading anymore, but I still like to do some. Back in September I shared with you this book I had won. I was able to find a free Sunday afternoon to sit and read it, it’s not super long so it worked out perfectly. This book was very enjoyable, it is heartwarming and inspiring, and I definitely recommend it. *If you would like to order this book for yourself, please click here.
I am currently reading The Mystery of David’s Bridge on my Android tablet and enjoying that very much as well. Some of you may know the author Pamela, she also writes the blog One Spoiled Cat. You can find her book on amazon, and her cat Sammy will always let you know when they’re running a deal on it! It is a mystery with a touch of romance. The main character is a private investigator and her sidekick is her cat!
I recently received another entertaining book called Pastry for Poodles by Chef Fifi LeFay. Author John Morris is writing a whole series of “cookbooks” by different dog breeds. Each dog is a master chef for The Chow Network. This is the first in the series. It is short and sweet, with photos that will make you hungry! Fifi will make you laugh with her specific cooking instructions like “Pre-heat oven to PRETTY HOT”.
These books are meant to make fun gifts for all dog lovers. They’re not really cookbooks unless you like unusual things, like salmon oil, in your blueberry tarts!! Pastry for Poodles is only available for pre-order at this time on amazon.com, but if you would like your own copy now, you can enter to win one right here! We’re going to keep it simple….just indicate in a comment below that you would like to win and I will do a random draw for anyone who does so. You can learn more about these books by visiting the website Real Dogs Cook.
*Disclaimer: We received this book free of charge. Wag ‘n Woof Pets only shares products we feel will be of interest to our readers, and we are always honest in our reviews.*
I will also be giving away another copy of this book later this month. The end of October is an exciting time here at the “Wag ‘n Woof Ranch”. On the 25th, Sheba turns 10 years old, and on the 27th Luke turns 1! The 27th is also the date when Cricket joined our household 10 years ago. We’re planning a big paw-ty and giveaway, so stay tuned!
On one final note, we want to thank Yoda the Pitbull and her Mom for passing on the Versatile Blogger award to us.
