Summary

The Die-Hard Dog  
Lance, a Border Collie, spends a few miserable weeks inside his owners’ house before he is thrown outside and chained, without food, water or shelter. For ten 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,” the author 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 owners 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 rollercoaster ride his rescuers took. Be warned! Lance will get into your heart and under your skin (not literally, of course!).

    Feared and enjoyed around the world, Michael Winner's column in the Sunday Times is something of a phenomenon. One day, on a whim, the great man threw in a few of his favourite Jewish jokes. From such tiny acorns a cult following has grown, and old Hymie, the butt of many jokes, took on new life. By popular demand, here is a collection of the ribald, edgy and side-splittingly funny bon mots from Winner's much-loved (and hated) alter ego. This is not for the easily offended!

    Expert Help for Difficult House Training Problems 
     
    Some owners can house train their dogs without having to call on an expert. But when people experience difficulty with house training, it can lead to a variety of very serious consequences for the dog and frustration for the owner. While most trainers can offer standard house training advice for puppies, dealing with on-going problems with older dogs—fear based peeing, male marking, soiled crates—may be beyond the scope of what a dog trainer is equipped to handle. 
     
    Hard to House Train by Peggy Swager is designed to be the go-to reference guide for trainers who encounter difficult house training cases. With in-depth information on proven techniques as well as how to deal with the underlying behavioral problems (both dog and human!) which underlie them, this book should be part of your reference library.
