A Welsh Corgi Puppy named Mail Order Annie honked car horns, vanquished baby gates, schemed after cookies, donuts, and room-service sandwiches, starred at Star Trek conventions… and charmed everyone she met. But charm doesn't mean a puppy won't eat the kitchen walls!
Best-selling author-turned-trainer Howard Weinstein tells Annie's story in a truly universal dog book — giving new pup-owners training tips and a clear idea of what to expect from life with a wonderful dog — helping current pet-owners get the most from the human-canine relationship — sharing stories to touch the hearts of all dog-lovers.
Written with a journalist's eye for detail, a novelist's story-telling skills, and a professional trainer's experience.
