Book Hunters in Brief #142: Unusual Pet Memoirs

A show of hands. If you could give your pet the ability to talk, would you?

Remember this is the only being on earth who knows you eat ice cream straight out of the carton...

standing over the sink...

in your underwear...

for breakfast...


and don't use a spoon.

Oh, and remember when you got so mad at Windows Vista, you threw your laptop across the room, then told everyone that the cat knocked it off your desk? Well, the cat knows what really happened, and probably isn't happy that you blamed your little temper tantrum on her.

Yeah. It's probably safer to do what these folks did, which is do the talking for your pet, or the writing as the case may be.

Take a "Paws" @ Katy Library

With the advent of beautiful fall weather, there’s no better time than the present to take your furry pal to the dog park on Franz Road, right next door to Katy Library. If you don’t have a dog yet, or Fido needs to brush up on his manners before he can go to the park, stop by Katy Library and peruse our resources for dog owners.
