An Autographed Copy of Speaking For Spot
It’s a great gift.

Every year about this time I start to hyperventilate at the thought of the holiday shopping that still remains. No matter how early I start (even the previous December!), I never seem to have it done as soon as I’d like.

This year, I’ve got a little help. Nancy Kay, the author of Speaking For Spot: Be the Advocate Your Dog Needs to Live a Happy, Healthy, Longer Life, has a great idea. She will personally autograph a copy of her book and send it directly to the dog lover on your list. She even offers the option of dog motif gift wrap, and will enclose any gift cards you include with your orders when she mails the gifts to the recipients.

That is my idea of easy shopping! If only Dr. Kay also had insightful books on every topic I need to finish my shopping: golfing, geocaching, fishing, quilting. . . Then I’d probably be done by now.

(FYI: Nancy Kay and her book have been discussed before on Bark’s blog, including in an entry that discusses her interview on NPR with Terry Gross.)

I have an autographed copy of this book and can testify that it is incredibly useful. I've referred to it often, particularly for vaccination issues which I'm facing with my dog at the moment. It's a wonderful book that I'm so glad to have on my library shelf. Very neat offer from Dr. Kay -- she really couldn't have made it easier -- and I hope to take her up on it.

And even better too is the fact that 10% of proceeds through the end of December are donated to the Morris Animal Foundation's http://www.curecaninecancer.org. It's a great combination - you and your dog benefit from a great book and all of us benefit from the efforts to find better treatments and a cure for canine cancer.
