28 hilarious "self-help" lessons for seniors who've heard it all. With age comes wisdom. Mostly, we become wise enough to realize that we can’t do some of the things we did so well when we were young. The beloved comedian George Burns said it quite eloquently: “I can do anything at eighty that I could do when I was twenty. That gives you an idea of what terrible shape I was in at twenty.” Self-help books offer solid, beneficial techniques, but they really only work for the young. Award-winning comedy writer Gene Perret reveals that more mature devotees must adjust these techniques, tweak them, alter them, and in some cases, ignore them completely. New Tricks for Old Dogs points out some of the flaws in the self-help philosophy. It tempers the advice with common sense. The battle cry of this volume is “Do it, but don’t overdo it.” Sometimes, after we reach a certain age, the best exercise program is a good, brisk nap.

What is it that dogs have done to earn the title of “man’s best friend”? And more broadly, how have all of our furry, feathered, and four-legged brethren managed to enrich our lives? Why do we love them? What can we learn from them? And why is it so difficult to say good-bye? Join B.J. Hollars as he attempts to find out—beginning with an ancient dog cemetery in Ashkelon, Israel, and moving to the present day. Hollars’s firsthand reports recount a range of stories: the arduous existence of a shelter officer, a woman’s relentless attempt to found a senior-dog adoption facility, a family’s struggle to create a one-of-a-kind orthotic for its bulldog, and the particular bond between a blind woman and her Seeing Eye dog. The book culminates with Hollars’s own cross-country journey to Hartsdale Pet Cemetery—the country’s largest and oldest pet cemetery—to begin the long-overdue process of laying his own childhood dog to rest. Through these stories, Hollars reveals much about our pets but even more about the humans who share their lives, providing a much-needed reminder that the world would be a better place if we took a few cues from man’s best friends.

In today's dog-eat-dog world of competition and ongoing change, people in every position--especially the "old dogs"--must learn to work in great groups and creative coalitions rather than as "lone wolves." They must learn the relatively "new tricks" of collaboration and innovation. But often, people react to change as a threat to their security, and lock their organizations into archaic processes. They become like the proverbial "dog in the manger" that neither enjoys the position it has nor allows others to enjoy it, and their companies become "dog tired" and then one day they are "dog gone."

In this sixth book, the Dog Club is busier than ever—and headed right for its first big fight!

Then, there is the Case of the Upset Akita, a dog with a talent for transforming fine furniture into debris fit only for the junkyard. In all, dog owners will find more than 30 case histories, with suggestions for solving problems that include paper training, barking, furniture chewing, and lots more. Full-color photos and line illustrations.
