Praise for Second-Hand Dog "At long last, the book all animal shelters have been waiting for is here: Carol Lea Benjamin's Second-Hand Dog." --Sue Sternberg ASPCA Report "...goes right to the heart of what it's all about..." --Barbara Dyer, Director Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter "Benjamin writes with love and sensitivity about caring for pets 'adopted' from a shelter." --Publishers Weekly "...a solid training program...a great book." --Job Michael Evans, Dog Fancy "Why a book like this has never before been written is beyond me. It is an invaluable guide to rehabilitating those myriad unfortunate dogs which have either never had a home or have been shuttled from one owner to another, losing confidence, trust and self-esteem every step of the way. It is an absolute must for every owner who wants his second-hand dog to regain the ability to become the warm, loving companion every dog should be." --Kenneth A. Marden President, The American Kennel Club "...Carol Lea Benjamin has written a witty, sound and thoroughly appropriate book on the extraordinary advantages that each of us who has second-hand pets knows first-hand. If you're thinking about sharing your life with a pet or with another pet, read this book first!" --John F. Kullberg President ASPCA

Mosby goes to church almost every Sunday; while he does tell about his visits to nursing homes and hospitals, surprisingly (for his owners) his story brings out how we can all serve God in many ways, every day of our lives, not just on Sunday mornings. Mosby has had a ball visiting the New Hampshire Highland Games, the town’s Ecumenical Thanksgiving Worship Service, the Halloween Parade, Independence Day and Christmas season festivities, and many more occasions. In every event, he brings his love for people with him and shares his warmth with everyone he meets. Through Mosby’s humorous, sometimes solemn, always inspirational exploits, learn how a dog can encourage you to take God into your life and work for Him every day of the week, not just on Sundays.

Laboratory animals, including dogs, play an important role in biomedical research and medical advances. Dogs have a long history of use in research and have contributed enormously to the health and welfare of both humans and animals. The humane care and management of these animals is a fundamental component of their use in medical research. The Laboratory Canine clearly presents basic background information covering subjects that apply specifically to dogs used in research settings, such as basic biological features, husbandry, management, veterinary care, experimental methodology, and resources. The book offers guidance on performing a detailed physical examination, including necessary veterinary supplies, clinical signs of illness, clinical conditions, and reference tables of widely used veterinary drugs. It discusses the human-animal bond or the relationship between people and animals and its significance and importance to the quality of research, the health of the animals, and the emotional health of staff caring for or working with animals. It also examines anesthetic and surgical procedures that include pre-, intra-, and post-anesthesia/operative monitoring. The Laboratory Canine contains reference charts for monitoring patients through post-operative recovery and reference tables for anesthetics and analgesics. Because dogs are a highly visible species in the eyes of the public and regulators, it is important that individuals working with laboratory canines have the proper training and experience. This valuable resource is ideal for those charged with the care and use of canines in a research setting.
