The Perfect Book for Dog Lovers!

From Orlando native Allison Weiss Entrekin comes For the Love of Dogs, a brand-new book for pooch parents! Expressing the passion we feel for our pets, the book uses all 26 letters of the alphabet accompanied by rhymes, colorful illustrations and informative text. The result is a tribute to dogs that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. There’s even a personal foreword from It’s Me or the Dog’s Victoria Stilwell!

From barking Beagles to dashing Dachshunds, many of our favorite breeds are featured on this book’s colorful pages. And because I is for “Instincts” and O is for “Obedience,” readers will learn about some of the traits that make dogs such fascinating friends.
