    Many dogs, especially those from animal shelters, have not had good experiences in their previous lives and are traumatized or fearful. This often manifests itself in different behaviors in different situations. For example, a dog expresses its fear through aggression on the lead if another dog comes too close, if it encounters cyclists or joggers or a person who wants to stroke the fearful dog. Other dogs are afraid of stairs, being left alone or loud noises. Anxious dogs also try to escape situations and show their fear by curling their tail or putting their ears back. However, some dogs also suffer silently because they can no longer find another way out of their fear.
    Do you also have a dog that makes your everyday life difficult? Do you often feel frustrated and don't know how to support and help your dog? Do you suffer every time your dog reacts anxiously and would you like to actively work on giving you and your dog a more relaxed life? Then you are holding a book in your hand that will help you to understand your dog, his fears and his behavior in order to find the right way to deal with your anxious dog so that you can experience a more relaxed everyday life together in the future.

    Lance, a border collie, spends a few miserable weeks inside his owner's house before he is thrown outside and chained, without food, water or shelter. For 10 years he is kept alive by a neighbor but remains trapped on hostile territory, tortured by people and attacked by animals. Then he and the author accidentally cross paths. 
    When his owners threaten to get rid of him "permanently," Walter and his wife pull off a last-minute rescue and move to another town. End of story? No, just the beginning. Lance shows his gratitude by launching a reign of terror against his rescuers and anyone else he can get his teeth on. Experts and non-experts declare him a lost cause. His owner's face an agonizing dilemma: do we destroy the dog we rescued? 
    While waiting for his fate to be decided, Lance furnishes loads of comic relief. He makes every car ride a life-threatening yet rollicking (though not to the state trooper) adventure; his Houdini-like disappearing acts defy explanation; he fouls up a drug bust; and he challenges a swan to a swimming contest—guess who wins? When Lance isn't menacing, he's entertaining. 
    Fasten your seat belt and take the same crazy, emotional roller coaster ride his rescuers took. Be warned! Lance will get into your heart and under your skin (not literally, of course!)..

    “Details the author’s selection of thirty-three premier English Golf Clubs. It is comprehensive, useful, well illustrated and an up-to-date reference book.” —West Sussex Golf Club 
     
    Every golf course around the world has one thing in common—they are all unique. Golf provides a different experience wherever you go. No two courses are ever the same and each has their own captivating story to tell. 
     
    Blessed with a rich and varied landscape, England has a prolific collection of coastal links and inland courses created by some of golf’s most cherished craftsmen; Sunningdale (Park Jr. & Colt), Walton Heath (Fowler), St Enodoc (Braid), Alwoodley and Moortown (MacKenzie) to name just a few. 
     
    This guide offers a golfer everything they would require to enjoy a great round of golf at the best courses England has to offer. All the information you need is right here—par scores, yardage, green-fee price indicators, booking procedure, history of each club and how best to play the course. 
     
    England is where golf’s greatest artists have gifted us moments to treasure for eternity. A young Ballesteros lifting the claret jug at Royal Lytham & St Annes, Bobby Jones storming to victory at Hoylake on his way to the grand slam, and who can ever forget Nicklaus and Jacklin bringing their titanic Ryder Cup battle to a close with a famous handshake at Royal Birkdale. 
     
    Sharing a border with its spiritual home, England is undoubtedly golf’s exquisite front garden. 
     
    “What really makes the book come alive is the amount of research Michael has clearly put in. Only the most ardent golf historian wouldn’t find out something new.” —UKGolfGuy.com

    Baltic Adventure - My 2000km run...

    The Baltic adventure is my very own personal run of a lifetime. It has changed me forever. In 107 days, I journeyed in running shoes along the Baltic Sea from Stralsund to Tallinn. Travelling alone, I was able to devote myself completely to nature, the people and their cultures. Strangers became friends, expectation turned into reality, boldness into self-confidence. I experienced bustling holiday resorts and lonely areas. Enjoyable breaks in the towns and cities alternated with abstinent running days. I felt the mysticism of the Baltic States, the magic of untouched nature and the diversity of people in seven countries. I discovered what I was looking for: new experiences, peace and last but not least, a lot of new things about myself.  
    Guido Lange had requested a 4-month sabattical to fulfil his longing to run – on and on. What could be more obvious than to run along the water into the bright, fresh Baltic summer, through Poland, the Kaliningrad Oblast, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to a marathon in Finland! 7 countries in 107 days, countless experiences and encounters in one of the most interesting regions of Europe. 
    A travel book for everyone who has been to the Baltic States or wants to go there. An adventure book for all who'd like to pack their own bags and get out and go. A running book for all who've experienced long runs and those who'd like to do so.
