Though she is not permitted to attend her own party, Trouble’s contributions to a new book will be celebrated next week when Professorial Paws: Dogs in Scholars’ Lives and Work will have its Halifax launch.
The book’s title is an accurate description, but can’t indicate the range of the pieces included — from graphic narrative through memoir to poetry. Among them are several of the posts from this blog, including photos (alas, not in glorious colour).
Edited by Ardra Cole and Sharon Sbrocchi, the book is published in Halifax by Backalong Books, and all proceeds from the sale of the book and of its predecessor in Ardra Cole’s Animal-Human Bond Series will go to ElderDog Canada. ElderDog is a non-profit organization that supports older dogs and older dog-people and educated the community about the importance of the animal-human bond, especially in later life.
