A mixed-breed offspring of Marley and Me and All Creatures Great and Small, His Name Was Brownie is your next book for fun. Peopled with multiple Marley dogs (and Marlas as well), nearly all listeners will recognize their dog or cat, son or daughter, spouse - maybe even themselves - as the featured characters barrel their way through their laughable adventures.Collies and Irish wolfhounds bound through the story; but they have many companions, including a tuxedo cat, a mastiff, a demented border collie, two Siamese cats, two 25-pound attack cats, the monkey from hell, a Labrador retriever nicknamed “Blockhead” because of his habit of getting his head stuck in plastic milk cartons, black witch moths, and a bufo. Their escapades take them through beautiful areas of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii before the clan finally lands in Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River.Dr. Judi Roller has been breeding and showing collies and Irish wolfhounds for many years, garnering AKC championships for her dogs and several group placements along the way. She has also enjoyed judging multiple AKC matches. Her previous book, The Politics of the Feminist Novel, won an Outstanding Academic Book award, and she has published literary criticism as well as book reviews and occasional poems and a short story.Her BA cum laude was earned at Bowling Green State University, and her doctorate came from the University of Michigan, even though she is a homegrown Ohio State Buckeye, which became a challenge while she was teaching freshman English during her graduate work at Michigan. Now retired from university administration, she has more time for dogs, golf, travel, bridge, and reading. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Felicia Elenum.

The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge, shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup. ‘Cept there’s no whining. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue. Abby wants to be a blood sucking fiend, too, but right now she’s really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein® platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there’s that vampire cat Chet, who’s getting bigger and smarter—and thirstier—by the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non." Before you can say “OMG! WTF?” Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby’s gay Goth friend Jared, and SF’s finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that’s when the fun really begins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Bennett. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/002135/bk_harp_002135_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Finalist for the PEN/USA Award in Creative Nonfiction, the Thurber Prize for American Humor, and the Audie Award in Biography/Memoir This Random House Reader's Circle edition includes a reading group guide and a conversation between Firoozeh Dumas and Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner! "Remarkable . . . told with wry humor shorn of sentimentality . . . In the end, what sticks with the reader is an exuberant immigrant embrace of America."-San Francisco Chronicle In 1972, when she was seven, Firoozeh Dumas and her family moved from Iran to Southern California, arriving with no firsthand knowledge of this country beyond her father's glowing memories of his graduate school years here. More family soon followed, and the clan has been here ever since. Funny in Farsi chronicles the American journey of Dumas's wonderfully engaging family: her engineer father, a sweetly quixotic dreamer who first sought riches on Bowling for Dollars and in Las Vegas, and later lost his job during the Iranian revolution; her elegant mother, who never fully mastered English (nor cared to); her uncle, who combated the effects of American fast food with an army of miraculous American weight-loss gadgets; and Firoozeh herself, who as a girl changed her name to Julie, and who encountered a second wave of culture shock when she met and married a Frenchman, becoming part of a one-couple melting pot. In a series of deftly drawn scenes, we watch the family grapple with American English (hot dogs and hush puppies?-a complete mystery), American traditions (Thanksgiving turkey?-an even greater mystery, since it tastes like nothing), and American culture (Firoozeh's parents laugh uproariously at Bob Hope on television, although they don't get the jokes even when she translates them into Farsi). Above all, this is an unforgettable story of identity, discovery, and the power of family love. It is a book that will leave us all laughing-without an accent. Praise for Funny in Farsi "Heartfelt and hilarious-in any language."-Glamour "A joyful success."-Newsday "What's charming beyond the humor of this memoir is that it remains affectionate even in the weakest, most tenuous moments for the culture. It's the brilliance of true sophistication at work."-Los Angeles Times Book Review "Often hilarious, always interesting . . . Like the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, this book describes with humor the intersection and overlapping of two cultures."-The Providence Journal "A humorous and introspective chronicle of a life filled with love-of family, country, and heritage."-Jimmy Carter "Delightfully refreshing."-Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "[Funny in Farsi] brings us closer to discovering what it means to be an American."-San Jose Mercury News

My name is Teresa Cash and I live in Bowling Green, Kentucky. About seventeen years ago, I became a transport driver for our local Humane Society. I drive homeless pets wherever they need to go, in-state or, more often than not, to Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York City. These pets go to rescue groups who sponsor them and then adopt them out to new families, or they go straight to their new adopters. The internet has been wonderful for animal rescue. There is a site called 'Petfinder.com' and most every shelter in the country has a page on this site. People looking for pets can go to that site and can see what animals are in each shelter, starting closest to your zip code, or you can do a more specialized search, looking for a certain breed, young or older, male or female, housebroken or not, etc. We carefully screen the rescues we work with. I'm a bit of an insomniac, so driving long distances is easy for me. The northern states have much better and stronger spay/neuter laws on the books than we do, so they do not have the pet overpopulation that is so prevalent in the southern states. If you want to adopt in the north, the shelters aren't overflowing with lots of animals, so you put in a request and/or you work with a rescue group to find the pet that fits your family. These groups then go to Petfinder, look to see what animals we have available and they then match their adopters with animals from our shelters. All animals that go on our transports are fully vetted, altered and certified healthy on transport week. On our very first transport, we took ten dogs to Maryland in the back of a little Nissan pickup truck and we couldn't believe our luck that a rescue was willing to take TEN dogs. These days, I don't hit the road with less than 90+ animals in our shelters 26' box truck (the big truck) or 40+ pets in a cargo van. I drive a rented cargo van one weekend, with animals from multiple shelters on board, then the following weekend, I drive the big truck for the Bowling Green-Warren Co. Humane Society. The third weekend is my weekend off, usually. We move 2500-3000 animals per year, animals that once would have been euthanized in our shelters because there weren't enough adopters and there just wasn't room for them all. We love saving lives and that is always our goal when creatures come into our shelter. Over the years, I've moved dogs, cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, gerbils, degus, birds, ferrets and even the occasional pot-bellied pig. I've delivered puppies on the road multiple times, when new mommas couldn't wait until the trip was over. I drive in all kinds of weather ... rain, snow, sleet, tornados, I even drove with a hurricane coming one time, because I knew that I could get in and out and be 3-4 hours back inland before it was scheduled to hit. I'm a bit of a nut like that. It takes quite a team to make these runs happen. Our rescue coordinator works with the groups to pick their pets and our full veterinary staff spays/neuters, vaccinates and microchips each pet. The shelter workers help with all the paperwork. Our volunteers and staff come a couple of hours before each trip to walk all of the animals before they leave on their journey. And there are our rescue groups and adopters who work with our animals and get them into great new homes. And there's me. I drive the truck. I meet interesting people and find myself in crazy situations at times. I've written this book to share my adventures, stories, heartbreak, happiness ... it's been eventful, to say the least. I love this job and I'm proud to play my part in rescuing these deserving creatures.
