  • Dr. Ian Dunbar’s puppy books recount the ways that early handling of a puppy influences his entire life and personality.

  • Suggestions for New Year’s resolutions to adopt a humane diet, discussing how the choices we make when we sit down to eat make a big difference for animals and how adopting Meatless Mondays or buying cage-free eggs can make great resolutions any time of the year.
