To the New Owners Excerpt :

The Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist “gives a familial face to the mystique of Martha’s Vineyard” in a memoir with “gentle humor and . . . elegiac sweetness” (Kirkus Reviews). A National Book Critics Circle Award finalist In the 1970s, Madeleine Blais’s in-laws purchased a vacation house on Martha’s Vineyard. A little more than two miles down a dirt road, it had no electricity or modern plumbing, the roof leaked, and mice had invaded the walls. It was perfect. Sitting on Tisbury Great Pond—well-stocked with delicious oysters and crab—the house faced the ocean and the sky. Though improvements were made, the ethos remained the same: no heat, television, or telephone. Instead, there were countless hours at the beach, meals cooked and savored with friends, nights talking under the stars, until, in 2014, the house was sold. To the New Owners is Madeleine Blais’s “witty and charming . . . deeply felt memoir” of this house, and of the Vineyard itself, from the history of the island and its famous visitors, to the ferry, the pie shops, the quirky charms and customs, and the abundant natural beauty. But more than that, this is an elegy for a special place—a retreat that held the intimate history of her family (The National Book Review).

New Owner s Guide to Yorkshire Terriers Excerpt :

ABOUT THE BOOK Yorkshire Terriers are majestic little dogs; proud and intelligent with flowing locks and human-like hair. With their spunky attitude that belies their size, the 'Yorkie' is a popular choice among dog lovers. The Yorkshire Terrier, which originally hails from the English city of Yorkshire, was a working class dog, primarily used as rat catchers in nineteenth century clothing mills. Later on, the dog left the realm of the working classes to become a companion pet for high society families in Europe. The breed was first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1885. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK To socialize your Yorkshire Terrier effectively, you should start by introducing him to as many different people as possible. Encourage gentle play and petting. Make careful choices; a single well-behaved child will offer your dog a more positive experience that a group of noisy ones will. Next on the agenda are the sights, sounds and smells of life outside. Try and incorporate a variety of environments into your daily walk. Take him to the park, down a busy street and pay particular care to visit places that you would normally frequent; it is imperative that he becomes used to a wide variety of locations. As the weeks pass, you can build upon his social skills by introducing more and more stimuli. Yorkshire Terriers can find it difficult to get along with other animals, so you should tackle this potential issue as soon as his inoculations have been administered. Puppy training classes are a great idea, but you should also attempt to introduce your dog to cats and rabbits from an early age to avoid problems later. Your Yorkshire Terrier and Children All things considered, the Yorkshire Terrier is a friendly breed of dog, although special care should be taken if you have children. Your dog will have been introduced to children of all ages as part of your socialization efforts, but it is a different thing to have a child meet a dog once to having children and dogs share

A New Owner s Guide to Pugs Excerpt :

ABOUT THE BOOK There is something very distinctive about pugs. The toy dogs have wrinkled faces and curly tails, as well as a pudgy build. Their glossy coat and "square" shape make them appealing as friendly and non-threatening dogs. It isn't just their looks that make them so unique, though - they have big personalities inside those small bodies! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Entropion is caused by pugs' eyelashes irritating the eyeball. It is usually easy to treat by a veterinarian, but left untreated can cause inflammation or more serious problems. Bilateral cataracts are dense spots on the eyeball. These spots can cause blindness. In some cases, surgery can help to fix the cataracts or prevent further blindness. Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) is a common condition in various dog breeds. It is caused by a deterioration of the vessels around the retina, which can cause blindness. The first symptom is usually night blindness, followed by deteriorating day blindness. Hip dysplasia is also relatively common in the breed and is usually caused by abnormal joint development. It can cause severe stiffness in the joints, along with significant pain. It is usually noticed when the pug begins to go lame, caused by his body producing bone spurs, which are intended to stabilize the joint. Elongated soft palate is one of the well-known pug health problems. It is the obstruction of airways, which leads to excessive gasping for air and in some cases, the blocking of vocal cords. It can be corrected with surgery in most cases... Buy a copy to keep reading!

A New Owner s Guide to Labrador Retreivers Excerpt :

ABOUT THE BOOK The Labrador Retriever, commonly known as the Lab, was originally bred to retrieve fishing nets from the water, and to catch fish which jumped off the hook. The lab insured a greater catch for fishermen who had a retriever in their care. As the breed evolved, Labs rapidly gained popularity as a hunting dog and as a companion. Today, its intelligence and their ability to be trained which have made the breed indispensable in a wide variety of fields. Raising Labradors is a rewarding experience for a multitude of reasons. First, labs are extremely popular, and thus very easy to market. In fact, according to the American Kennel Club's rankings, they have been the most popular dogs in America for more than 20 years. They are energetic and loyal companions that appeal to a variety of owners because of their varied skill set. They also have a fantastic personality, as they are typically mild-tempered and extremely intelligent. MEET THE AUTHOR Misty B. is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. Happy reading! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Some of the most unique and remarkable physical attributes carried by the Lab breed are directly related to their early use by fishermen. The distinct interwoven pattern of their coat has unique waterproof qualities. Moisture will bead up and roll off their coat making it easier for them to swim without resistance. It also provides a unique layer of insulation, as water does not penetrate the inner layers of the coat so that labs stay both dry and warm in damp conditions. Labrador retrievers also have webbed feet which make the excellent swimmers, and which make them more sure-footed on rough or slick terrain. Finally, their tail is wide and flat; designed to be used like a propeller behind the body while swimming. Basic obedience training should always be completed before expecting a lab to learn a special skill set. Obedience training should begin

A New Owner s Guide to Bernese Mountain Dogs Excerpt :

ABOUT THE BOOK Bernese Mountain Dogs are large dogs with strong, sturdy figures and gleaming coats. Although theyre classed as working dogs, their gentle temperament combined with their loyal and affectionate nature make them excellent companion pets. According to Dog Training Central, it's generally believed that the breed developed from the Mastiff-type dogs introduced to Switzerland by the Romans. They were primarily used as working farm dogs until the beginning of the 20th century, when a decline in their numbers inspired Swiss farmers from the hamlet of Bern to resuscitate the breed. They were introduced to the United States by Isaac Scheiss in 1926 and were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club until 1937. MEET THE AUTHOR The Hyperink Team works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content.

A New Owner s Guide to Siberian Huskies Excerpt :

ABOUT THE BOOK Siberian Huskies are energetic and powerful dogs with robust figures and a resilient nature. Originally bred for load pulling in difficult conditions, they retain their status as a working breed while also serving as show dogs and family pets. If you are considering getting a Siberian or have done so recently, congratulations! This guide will help you familiarize yourself with your dogs needs in order to ensure a happy, healthy, and long-lasting relationship between you and your dog. MEET THE AUTHOR Laura Forshaw is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Although Siberian Huskies may look intimidating to people and other dogs, don't let their powerful appearance deceive you. These dogs are friendly and affectionate as can be. Those who find the appearance of a Siberian Husky intimidating should consider what the Rocky Mountain Siberian Husky Club has to say about the breed: His rugged endurance, stamina and untiring energy have led to the misconception that the Siberian is a fierce, belligerent animal. Nothing could be more untrue. A Siberian will pull in harness until he drops in the traces. He will vehemently argue the view that only small breeds should be lap dogs. He thrives on affection and returns it doubled. When raised from a pup with a child, a safer, more friendly and faithful companion could not be found. Siberians are incredibly social and don't fare well being left alone for long periods of time. If you work all day and dont have another pet, your dog will get lonely and lonely and may indulge in destructive behavior.

New Owners in Their Own Land Excerpt :

New Owners in their Own Land :Minerals and Inuit Land Claims is a well-researched treatment of the institutional, political, and personal conflicts that guided the process of Nunavut land claim negotiations. McPherson carefully considers the connection between resource development stemming from the days of oil and gas exploration in the Arctic in the 1960s and the Inuit's ensuing battle for self-determination. He outlines the federal government's "business-as-usual" tactic in pushing exploration further north onto Inuit territory and sheds light on exactly how the precedent-settling agreement was achieved whereby the Inuit managed to become owners of the mineral claims on their own land.New Owners in Their Own Land discusses the prolonged, historical dispute over the land selection process with respect to subsurface rights within Nunavut using existing research, interviews, and personal diaries. The author's personal account of his involvement as a mineral consultant for the Inuit negotiators provides a rare and unique perspective on Inuit self-determination and exploration history in the North.
