Ruff Ride

This last year has been a "ruff ride" for humans and also for our furry friends. Many of them have been abandoned or turned into local shelters because owners have lost jobs, homes and hope. The 101 Lakemore Cats that were abandoned in a house in foreclosure are one example. We have written about them a number of times in recent months. Their story has a happy ending because a man named Eric cared enough to put his life on hold to rescue all of them.

But this post isn't about gloom and negativity. It's about a witty new book titled Ruff Ride by Shawn and Lynel Berryhill. We were pleased to receive a review copy of the book.

We enjoyed their humor and photos, poking fun at the economy and eliciting smiles all around. One canine depiction we particularly enjoyed was, "The wisdom of man never yet contrived a system of taxation that would operate with perfect equality." (Andrew Jackson) Visit their website to see the dog illustration that goes with it.

"Ruff ride is dedicated to preserving the quality of life for all our forgotten companions through a variety of charities, awareness efforts, and fund raising programs. Any Ruff Ride purchase you make is a direct contribution towards this cause."

The 8.5" x 8.5" paperback book is self-published and is available for the low price of $15 only on www.RuffRide.com.
