September already! Where does the time go? The kids are already back at school, and the chill in the air tells us that autumn is on its way. Never fear – we've got news of a couple of great new books coming this season, to keep you entertained while you drink your pumpkin-spiced latte. As well as that, we've got some great photos from our Charlie book launch, and some fab advice about buying or adopting a puppy, in honour of Puppy Awareness Week! Now, hands up, who's ready for a hot chocolate?
Our newest book gets off to a great start ...
Charlie – The dog who came in from the wild
HH4784 • Paperback • 17x22cm • £10.99 • 112 pages • 47 pictures
• ISBN: 978-1-845847-84-5 • UPC: 6-36847-04784-9
The true story of the bond that developed between author Lisa Tensin-Dolma, and Charlie – a traumatised, one-eyed, Romanian dog who lived the first 18 months of his life in the wild, never socialising with humans. Charting Charlie’s progress and setbacks, it explains how Lisa worked with Charlie to help him overcome his extreme fearfulness to become a happy, affectionate, fun-loving family dog. Charlie – The dog who came in from the wild is touching and heart-warming, and clearly demonstrates the transformative power of love and kindness.

Puppy Awareness Week
Choosing a puppy is an important decision. Make sure you have all the facts!
Today marks the last day of
the Kennel Club's Puppy Awareness Week
, which aims to make sure that puppies live healthy, happy lives with suitable owners by spreading the 'be puppy aware' message, which involves making sure you know which dog and breed is right for your lifestyle so that you can care for him or her for life, and making sure you can separate responsible breeders from puppy farmers.
The dos and don'ts of buying a puppy
The Kennel Club has released these helpful guidelines to help make the right decisions when choosing a puppy:
- Buy a puppy from a responsible breeder
- See the puppy where he or she was born and raised
- See the puppy interacting with his or her mother
- Ensure your breeder has given the pup's parents the correct health tests for their breed
- Let your puppy be delivered to your door, or pick up your puppy from a neutral location
- Buy a puppy from a pet shop or online services such as Gumtree
- Buy a puppy on a whim or as a gift
- Buy a puppy from a suspected puppy farm to 'rescue' him or her. You are just making space for another poorly pup to fill
For more information on how to help stop puppy farming, and for ways to show support for PAW throughout the year, visit the Kennel Club's website.
Preparing for a new dog
