BOOK REVIEW: DOG PARK DIARY
AS "TOLD TO" KIM PEARSON

We hope you enjoy this book review by Caryn St. Clair.





Goody Beagle goes to his community dog park everyday. By “telling” of his experiences in the park to his alpha who has kindly written them down, dog loving readers will not only enjoy the dogs antics at the park, but also learn some valuable lessons on how to get along applicable not only to dogs, but to humans as well.

The first thing Goody and the other dogs do when they enter the park is to greet each other. While doing so, they are able to assess what state of mind their friends are in that day. If someone is feeling out of sorts, they know to leave that dog alone and so forth. Although humans obviously can't greet each other in quite the manner dogs do, the idea that we should adjust our interactions with someone based in part on how the other person is feeling is an interesting one.

There are several little digs at dogs thinking themselves superior to the others because of fancy leashes or collars written in a way that readers can quickly see the analogy to the old saying about not judging a book by it's cover.

And finally, dogs who do not “exhibit proper dog etiquette” are banned from the park. Well dear readers, think about that one. We may not like all of the rules and regulations associated with our community, the organizations we belong to or society as a whole, but if we fail to “exhibit proper etiquette” we will most assuredly be at least snubbed if not banned or jailed. Yes, there is much humans can learn from our canine friends.
