For our second Thursday give away, we have Alison Pace’s new book of essays, You Tell Your Dog First.
Here’s the official blurb:
You Tell Your Dog First…
About the date you just had…about the questionable results of a medical test…about the good and the bad…about everything.
For years, award-winning author Alison Pace was a dog person without a dog. And then, she got Carlie—a feisty and fluffy West Highland white terrier. She could weed out bad boyfriends with a sniff of her button-black nose and win the hearts of lifelong friends with an adoring gaze. Suddenly, Alison had a constant companion and confidante, who went with her on long morning rambles in Central Park, on trips to the country and the beach, and on her search for inner peace, love, and happiness. Through Carlie, Alison found herself connected to the world as never before.
With her trademark warmth, wit and humor, Alison shares her stories…the tales of a dog person who found her dog.
Alison made her name with her witty, New York set, dog-centric novels, Pug Hill, City Dog, and A Pug’s Tale. This is her first foray into non-fiction, and it’s nearly as much fun as gossiping over coffee with her. Nearly. (This is why we tend to do a lot of talking and very little writing during our so-called “writing dates”.)
So, for a copy of You Tell Your Dog First, here’s your question….
If you could have any pet, no matter how bizarre, what kind of pet would you pick and what would you name it?
One person who comments will be chosen at random to receive an early copy of You Tell Your Dog First. The winner will be announced on Saturday.
Coming up next week… Andrea Penrose’s The Cocoa Conspiracy!
