My dogs on TV

I got last-minute word that Bev and I will be on Evening Magazine tonight at 7 p.m. (NBC, channel 5 in Seattle) talking, as usual, about some of the tips in Dog Park Wisdom. We taped the show back in July, and all I remember was uncooperative demo dogs (our own, of course). Still, I can’t wait to see what it boils down to and I’m just thrilled Lulu, Renzo and their buddy Eddie will be on TV. I feel like a stage mom.

My Super Model Dogs

I’m a total stage mother, and say, without hesitation, that you should check out my pups in the September issue of Sunset Magazine. (Sneak a peek at Lulu and Renzo online by scrolling down at Sunset traveler.) Aren’t they the bomb? Many thanks to awesome photographer Annie Marie Musselman and her adorable canine grip, Chicken, for memorializing my hiking buddies.

Summer reading

The BARk gave Dog Park Wisdom the paws-up this month. I always appreciate any nod from that pub’s discerning editors because they pretty single-handedly created the modern dog magazine — filled with top-drawer coverage of canine health, behavior, sports, lifestyle, and cultcha (art and literature inspired by our best friends). Plus, I’m in some pretty fine company this month: the July-August issue includes Tobias Wolff fiction, Mary Oliver poetry, and a short memoir from Nic Scheff, author of Tweak. If you’re not a subscriber (why?), grab a copy off the newsstand and head for the hammock.

High-altitude paws-up

The Colorado Dog Magazine recommended Dog Park Wisdom in its summer edition. With its focus on canine whole health, outdoor adventuring with your hound (including rock climbing) and folks who do good for dogs and vice versa, CO Dog is my kind of magazine. Thanks for the woofs!

High five from The Pet Blog

The Pet Blog had some nice things to say about Dog Park Wisdom this week, including (but not limited to):

There are great anecdotal stories from the author, her friends, family, and sometimes from complete strangers. My favorite among these is why you should wear a belt when visiting the dog park. Photos by Bev Sparks make Dog Park Wisdom visually a pleasure as well as a fun read.

I include the belt bit here as a teaser!

A nod from Dayton

In a story about canine road trips, the Dayton Daily News recommends Dog Park Wisdom, and says, “[Lisa Wogan] answers questions you never thought of before you even get the chance to think of them.”
