Anyone who knows me knows how I love Labs, and I'm thrilled I had the opportunity to write Animal Planet Dogs 101: Labrador Retriever for TFH Publishing. It is available for purchase on Amazon, and is in Petsmart and Barnes & Noble stores nationwide. Besides owning Labs, I have fostered and boarded hundreds more over the years.

Basset Hound, Your Happy Healthy Pet by Terry Albert

Author Terry Albert with a Basset Hound

Your Happy Healthy Pet: Basset Hound

By Terry Albert, 2008, Howell Books.

That's me in the photo below, "researching" these sweet dogs! They are exuberant and affectionate, and a lot of fun to be around, not just total couch potatoes like you might think! A big dog on short legs with a great sense of humor.

A complete pet guide for the new and experienced Basset Hound owner, you will find the information is specific to Bassets, not just any breed. Included is a DVD and a link to online chapters.

Since I couldn't add acknowledgements in the book, I'd like to thank JoAnn, Jacqueline and Bill Nolan of Splash Basset Hounds, Heather Simonek of Vogue Bassets, Don Bullock of Woebgon Bassets, Sylvie McGee and Cathy Wheeler, who all spent hours with me as I diligently took notes. Jacqueline Nolan posed with dogs, and Kevin Whelan had his agility dogs perform for photos by my good friend and professional photographer, Melanie Snowhite, who has several nice shots in the book.
