Pet Events for September 4 - September 11, 2013

This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
BowMeow's Brand New Book 'Home Cooking for Your Dog!'

Home Cooking for Your Dog is the first holistic cookbook for dogs to include recipes for cooked meals, treats, and the raw food diet, 

a big trend in the pet industry. 



User-friendly, chop-licking recipes like Fido's Fishcakes, Potluck Polenta, and Peanut Butter and Coconut Cakes call for healthy ingredients you can find in your local grocery store (or may already have at home) to create balanced, nutritious meals for a healthier, happier dog. 


Headnotes provide nutrition information, cooking tips, and anecdotes from the author, Christine M. Filardi, about her own four dogs to help readers transition their dogs to a homemade diet. Illustrated with a combination of irresistible color photographs of dogs and humorous line art, the book is a must-have for dog owners everywhere. A portion of the proceeds will support animal rescue.
