Two-For-One Holiday Book Sale and Insanely Adorable Complimentary Gift Wrap

Double Sided Wrapping Paper

I invite you to take advantage of my annual two-for-one book sale. Purchase Speaking for Spot: Be the Advocate Your Dog Needs to Live a Happy, Healthy, Longer Life or Your Dog’s Best Health: a Dozen Reasonable Things to Expect From Your Vet  and receive a second book of equal or lesser value for free. There is no limit on quantity- purchase as many books as you like at the two-for-one price.

The books you order will arrive neatly decked out in insanely adorable, reversible holiday giftwrap (see photo). Oh, and did I mention that this giftwrap is complimentary with your purchase?

Heads up dog trainers and groomers! Here’s an ideal and economical holiday gift idea for your clients. If you are a dog breeder, stock up on books now so you can send one home with every newly placed puppy. Do you run a rescue organization? The gift of a book is a wonderful way to thank your volunteers.

Speaking for Spot was an Amazon best seller and was featured on the NPR show, Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Your Dog’s Best Health is the ideal guide to finding your dog’s “Dr. Wonderful”.  Here is the content from two emails I recently received:

I wanted you to know that Snickers lived the longest and most enriched life possible because I’d become such an empowered advocate for her, thanks to Speaking for Spot! I could quote you many incidents, but mostly it’s a matter of just asking questions, then weighing the pros and cons of the effects/invasiveness of treatment versus benefits. When Snickers was going through her cancer treatment this came up many times, and I was a lot more confident about making the best decisions for my pet because I’d learned to ask the right questions. Snickers will be missed every minute of every day, but we take comfort in knowing she lived the very best life ever and knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that she was loved to the moon and back.

I received a phone call from a woman this morning who was referred by one of the veterinary clinics I work with. She had a list of questions about pet health insurance and I could tell she’d really done her homework. I said to her, “I applaud you for having so many great questions. How did you learn what to ask?” She replied, “My vet shared a book with me called Speaking For Spot.” This was the copy I had given them for their waiting room. The woman read the book cover to cover and wrote down all the questions from the chapter about pet insurance. All I can say is that if everyone asked such great questions and really understood what they were getting, it would sure make my job easier! By the way, she is enrolling her two dogs!
