Not Without My Dog

Many of you who have read MAGGIE know that I traveled to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina to work with the animals left behind, homeless due to the hurricane. Many animals were never reunited with their families. It was heartbreaking to witness. Many family pets were transported across the country to be adopted by new families -- a good thing on the one hand, but leaving many bonded humans and animals wondering and searching, never to see each other again.

Jenny Pavlovic also traveled to Louisiana after the disaster, coming home with Kate, the homeless cattle dog who won Jenny's heart. It was Kate and the thousands like her left behind in Katrina who were Jenny's inspiration for both 8 State Hurricane Kate, and now The Not Without My Dog Resource & Record Book. In writing her latest book, Jenny is doing all she can to be sure this kind of devastating separation between animals and their humans never happens again by creating a book that has all the information you need about your pet in one place.

Take it away, Jenny. The rest of this post comes from Jenny Pavlovic about her new book & the specials available:

"When I couldn't find the book I wanted for my dogs, I decided to make it myself. This book includes everything you need for your dog, with a records section, a resources section, and tips for understanding your dog better."
-- Jenny Pavlovic, author of The Not Without My Dog Resource & Record Book and 8 State Hurricane Kate

"This book is a must-have for all dog lovers and would make a great gift. There is nothing else like it!

—Dr. Marty Becker, " America 's Veterinarian”
