Worzel Wooface – The quite very actual Terribibble Twos

Veloce Publishing Ltd
Free sample

Things look like they just might be settling down for Worzel. After a year in his forever home, he's come to an almost peaceful truce with most of the cats, persuaded his Mum and Dad that ‘sit’ isn't essential, and – most importantly – established his place in the middle of the bed.
No longer a cautious puppy, Worzel has discovered an independent streak, and his somewhat dodgy recall has become non-existent. Worzel has reached the ‘terribibble teenage twos’ – that time in every dog's life when their owners wonder if the work, patience and dedication spent in the early days was pointless … and why everything their dog previously understood has suddenly become, at best, optional, but, more often, ignored! p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial; min-height: 12.0px}

About the author

Catherine Pickles is an author, journalist and blogger who lives in Suffolk with her husband and nearly grown-up children.
As a child, her home was filled with dogs, cats and every stray, broken or rescued animal in the village. She is an experienced foster-carer of Lurchers and other sighthounds. From the moment Worzel – initially a foster dog – skidded through the door, Catherine knew that he would be her first ‘failed foster.’
Worzel Wooface was adopted from Hounds First Sighthound Rescue. His mission in life is to eat every shoe his Dad owns. Tolerant of the five cats who live with him, his favourite is Gandhi, who he considers to be an honorary Lurcher.
As well as writing books, Worzel blogs, has his own Facebook page, and writes a regular column for his local newspaper. He is a champion for rescue dogs, and considers himself a Rescue Ambassador, promoting the joys and challenges of second-hand dogs.
He can usually be found upside-down on any bed other than his own, often with one of his Dad's shoes that he's ‘looking after.’ And licking. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Arial; min-height: 12.0px}

From one of the most respected figures in the dog rescue community come the harrowing, funny, and inspiring stories of nine incredible dogs that shaped her life.

Tia Torres, beloved underdog advocate and star of Animal Planet's hit show Pit Bulls & Parolees, chronicles her roller-coaster life in this heartwarming memoir featuring some of her best-loved dogs. With inimitable honesty and characteristic brashness, Tia captures the spirit and heart of these intelligent and loving canines, while carrying us behind the scenes of her TV show, into the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans, onto the soundstages of Hollywood films, and even to the jungles of Sri Lanka.

Tia has devoted her life to shattering the stereotype that pit bulls are dangerous, vicious predators. As the top dog at the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, the largest pit bull rescue in the United States, she and her team have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of animals that might otherwise have been destroyed. As she puts it, "Most of the stories in this book are about animals (and a few humans) that needed someone to believe in them and a purpose in order to show their true nobility."

Each dog Tia writes about here has overcome abuse, trauma, neglect, or just bad luck to become a stalwart, loving companion to Tia and her family. You'll meet Duke, whose intelligence and matinee-idol looks made him a star in movies and music videos; Junkyard Joe, whose single-minded passion for tennis balls was channeled into expertise as a drug-sniffing dog; Bluie, the unswerving protector of Tia's daughter Tania; and a host of other unforgettable canines.

My Life Among the Underdogs is above all a love story--one that is sure to grip the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog.
