Summary

Christine Zink has a wealth of information in an easy to read format. 
 
* Need to design a conditioning program for your canine athlete? * Trying to figure out a lameness location? * When to bring back an injured dog to competition? * Looking for guidance in the selection of your next agility partner? 
 
Chris writes this with the busy agility aficionado in mind. Each short chapter stands alone and is intended to be one soundbite on one topic, designed for easy digestion. You can read about a single topic before bed, while you are waiting for the oil to be changed or in the vet's office before your appointment. 
 
The Agility Advantage takes your canine agility partner through a lifetime with you. Subjects range from how dogs are built, to how dogs move, feeding and exercising so they move faster and more accurately, to sharing those later years when dogs don't move as fast as they used to. 
 
Especially appreciated are Dr. Zink's recommended age-range-specific proprioceptive exercises and how to improve your dog's angulation through exercise.

    Through New Mexico’s Official Scenic Historic Markers we learn about the people, the geological features, and the historical events that have made the Land of Enchantment a place unlike any other. An index to our history, these markers tell an incredible story about our cultures and origins. This revised and expanded edition of Roadside New Mexico provides additional information about these sites and includes approximately one hundred new markers, sixty-five of which document the contribution of women to the history of New Mexico. 
    Now structured alphabetically for easier identification, each essay also offers suggestions of similar Historic Markers to help readers explore each topic further. In addition, Pike includes entries on “Ghost Markers”—those sites missing from the road that still impart significant historical lessons. Roadside New Mexico delivers a useful companion for travelers who want to understand more about the landscapes and inhabitants of the state.

Today’s modern Rome has all of the elegant, ancient history of its past life mixed with the modern feel of a city at the epicenter of all things Italian. Where else but the “Eternal City” can you grab a slice of authentic Roman style pizza while heading for St. Peter’s Square to see the Pope’s weekly address, or indulge in homemade gelato while checking out the inspiring awe of the ancient Colosseum?
     
    There’s no question that Rome is full of historic splendor and beauty. Not only is it the largest city in all of Italy, but it has stood the test of time, being built on seven hills along the banks of the Tiber river. As the old saying goes, “All roads lead to Rome,” and when you journey there, you’ll instantly realize why. As the central part of one of the most powerful empires the world has ever seen, Rome was a city known for its religious, artistic, architectural, and aristocratic significances. From priceless works of art to delicious, authentic cuisine, Rome has plenty to offer the eager traveler looking to seek out historic adventures as well as modern fun.
