Kill The Dog

RRP $18.99

The not so great Great Recession. Christmas. An out of work father. And an injured, aging family pet requiring costly ACL surgery. Ron Stempler fully intended to have their nine year old Labrador medically fixed up until everyone suggested an unthinkable alternative. Everyone except his wife and his daughter Darlene who claimed to have an unbreakable ESP connection with her beloved black lab. While trying to decide what to do with the animal they consider a "family member", it is Ron himself - disenfranchised, self doubting, but loving father - whose hard choices allow him to rediscover his valued place as a "family member".


The Dog Diet

We are what we eat. And the same goes for our dogs...

Millions of them are overweight. Their lives have come to mimic our own. And now, over fed, under-exercised and stressed, they have begun to take on our shape and disease pattern. Over the past twenty years the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and skin problems in our dogs has rocketed.

It's not all our fault - far from it. We have grown up feeding our dogs processed cans and kibble because we believed the hype: 'stick to one food, don't deviate'. This is fine if it's the good stuff (and that does not necessarily mean the most expensive), but actually much of what's on offer is rubbish, and anyway variety is best: would you want to eat the same thing, day in day out, for the rest of your life?

In this book, Kate Bendix and vet Nick Thompson offer enough pet food knowledge to enable you to get your dog's weight down to a health level and keep it that way. Follow their advice and you will have a slimmer, happier dog - a gleaming, sleek Greek god of a hound who snoozes when he should, doesn't moult as if fur just went out of fashion, and runs like the wind. Just because he can!

The catch? There isn't one. The Dog Diet is easy, it won't cost you a fortune or eat into your precious downtime; and, wait for it...your dog will actually enjoy it. Let's learn from ourselves and help our dogs back to health.

A Dog's Tale

RRP $12.99

The book is told from the standpoint of a loyal household pet, a dog self described by the first sentence of the story; "My father was a St. Bernard, my mother was a collie, but I am a Presbyterian." The story begins with a description of the dog's life as a puppy and her separation from her mother, which to her was inexplicable. Her puppy and her owner's new child were soon added to her new home. When a fire breaks out in the nursery, the dog risks her life to drag the baby to safety. In the process, her motives are misunderstood and she is cruelly beaten by the owner. Soon however, the truth of the situation is discovered and she receives no end of praise. Later in the story, her puppy dies as a result of the owner's biological experiments. Only a servant seems to realize the irony, exclaiming, "Poor little doggie, you saved HIS child!" In the end, the dog (who does not realize her puppy is dead until her own hour is upon her) pines inconsolable over the grave of the puppy with the clear implication that she will do so until death.


Measuring Reading Competence

RRP $464.99

This book concerns measuring reading skills. It is not meant to be a compre­ hensive survey of reading research or a review of all possible approaches to reading measurement (although considerable attention is given to both subjects). Instead, the purpose of this book is to present a coherent, theoretically based approach to measuring reading competence. The ability to measure a phenomenon is an important prerequisite for scientific analysis. As Lord Kelvin said, "One's knowledge of science begins when he can measure what he is speaking about and express it in numbers." Unfortunately, not just any numbers will do. Presently available reading tests provide their users with a plethora of numbers-age levels, percentiles, grade equivalents-but their scientific value is questionable. The problem is that there is more to scientific measurement than merely assigning numbers to arbitrarily chosen behaviors. Scientific measurement occurs only within the confines of a theory, and most reading tests are atheoretical. Recent years have witnessed an explosive growth in reading research.
