Rodney Habib and Karen Becker, DVM, distill wisdom from top geneticists, microbiologists, and longevity researchers and share inspiring stories from people whose dogs have lived all the way into their 30s.

A Place to Run Free
In this compelling novel, young troublemaker Jake Phillips finds himself in a netherworld with pets who are awaiting their humans. But it’s not the afterlife he learned about in church—an evil presence is stealing away pets before they can be reunited with their people. Jake joins forces with Ursus the dog, and together, they determine to put a stop to the disappearances and bring back those taken. This harrowing, wonderful story shows we all have the bravery, compassion, and strength to make a difference, even if we must dig deep to find it.
The Dachshund Wears Prada
When social media consultant Isla Thompson goes viral for all the wrong reasons and becomes all but unemployable, she’s forced to take the only job she can get—caring for wild-mannered Dachshund, Camilla. She can’t afford to be picky when she needs to keep a roof over the head of her 14-year-old younger sister, Dani. And she definitely can’t risk falling for Camilla’s rich and reclusive, owner, Theo—but it may already be too late. We tore through this fun novel!
Jump into this paranormal cozy mystery! Maureen and her Golden Retriever Finn are prepping their quaint (and haunted!) Florida inn for the holiday season when a murder victim is found at the local movie theater on the first day of a holiday movie festival. Will Maureen be able to defend her staff and guests and help solve this case? You’ll have fun finding out.
Gone to the Dogs
Dogs have a way of coming into our lives when we need them the most. Gone to the Dogs chronicles Canadian artist and writer Rebecca Dufton’s life with her dogs through beautiful, illustrated artwork and writing. A moving homage to life with dogs.
