Between the pages of ASK ANNA, you'll find advice better than a belly rub. Dogs everywhere run to Anna with their questions about love, food, proper etiquette in the dog park, sibling rivalry, how to cope with lazy owners and a myriad of other topics. Anna's advice solves all problems and brightens Every Dog's Day. Anna begins her counseling by putting dogs at ease. Her motto: 'Let Me Hold Your Paw and Help.' Anna's advice to owners is 'Read this book and get a clue about what your dogs really think of you!' Here's a special message from Anna: Dear Person, My dad, Dean Koontz, is a writer - as you might be aware. For years his first golden retriever, Trixie, also wrote books, which sometimes made the bestseller list. I vowed never to be a writer. I barely have enough time for all the belly rubs, ball chasing, bird chasing, tug-of-war, and posing cutely that is required of me as a golden retriever, not to mention all of my non-professional interests such as the new translation of Proust that I have undertaken, and learning to pilot a hot-air balloon. Nevertheless, I have written a book of advice for dogs.
It's not a matter of ego, which anyone who knows a golden retriever will attest. It's not about money, because all the earnings I recieve from ASK ANNA will be given to Canine Companions for Independence, which provides assistance dogs for people with disabilities. What it's about is giving back to my community - which I feel obliged to do especially because of all the park grass I've ruined with little round brown spots. Thank you for your support.
