New Dog Book from a Dear Friend

I've a pilot friend, J.D. Kinman, that I know outside of blogging that has had two bestselling political action thrillers, but he totally surprised me with a copy of his third book, a hilarious tale of an unusual family and their dogs. My husband had to check on me a couple of times as I was reading after dinner last night because I was laughing so hard, then I was crying, then I was laughing again.  The Chapter "Charlie" alone is worth a purchase of a book for anyone that has ever rescued a neglected, sick, or senior dog.

Tales from the Dogs Side

Follow the hilarious tales of a displaced Texas ad agency executive and his two wise-cracking dogs as they escape the brutal winters of the Midwest and make a joyous and triumphant return home to their beloved Lone Star State. In between barbecue feasts and harassment by the IRS, prosthetic testicles and a dog-house-turned-time-machine, the antics and adventures of JD, his Doberman and German Shepherd, and his levelheaded and incredibly tolerant wife will have you howling with laughter and even occasionally wiping a tear away from your face.

This is the collection of tales that JD’s readers have been waiting to get their paws on for years.

Do yourselves a favor and pick up a copy, you won't regret it.
