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.

Review:

"Alison Pace's You Tell Your Dog First is a collection of heartwarming, soul-filling, funny and eerily relatable pooch inspired essays. This book is a great gift for dog lovers and those that want to understand them better. I loved this book." Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof

Synopsis:

New from Alison Pace, the author of Pug Hill.

After her divorce, Amy Dodge thought she?d finally write the next Great American Novel. Instead she?s written a bestselling children?s book series, Run, Carlie, Run! starring her adorable and spirited West Highland White terrier and a dashing (but fictional) Scottish explorer. When Carlie is offered a starring role in her own television show, and the explorer begins to take on a life of his own, Amy?s world takes a surreal turn.

But just when Amy starts thinking it?s a dog?s life after all, she figures out a way to make everything change. And though life in New York isn?t always a walk in the park, it might just take her exactly where she needs to be.

Synopsis:

Stephanie is an overwhelmed stay-at-home mom with a six-month-old. Her sister, Meredith, on the other hand, is hitting the two-year mark without a boyfriend-or even a decent date-but has a successful career as a food critic. Sometimes it seems the only thing these sisters share is their mutual desire to lose weight, so they decide to do it together. But will the strong desire for sisterhood outweigh their equally strong desire for comfort foods?
