I am familiar with both of these authors, as I reviewed Pukka's Promise earlier this year and I can not get enough of Seth's Underwater Dogs. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the events, but if you are in the Portland, Maine area, be sure to check them out (and send me pictures please!).
In one special week, the Planet Dog Company Store will proudly welcome best-selling author Ted Kerasote and best-selling author, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel for two free presentations, book signings and social hours. Book Signing Week at Planet Dog will feature two great events with two great authors at Portland’s neighborhood resource center for dog lovers!
Dog lovers are encouraged to bring their dogs and their family for a rare opportunity to meet these amazing authors who celebrate our 4-legged friends. Free refreshments and treats will be served (beer, wine, water, munchies and dog treats).
For information on the opportunity for puppies (under 6 months of age and comfortable in water) to participate in the casting call for Seth’s next book and for adult dogs (private underwater shoots with Seth) contact Julie Bernier at email@example.com.

About Pukka’s Promise
When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle — who died too soon, as all our dogs do — he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. But how to do that? So much has changed in the way we feed, vaccinate, train, and live with our dogs from even a decade ago.
In an adventure that echoes The Omnivore's Dilemma with a canine spin, Kerasote tackles all those subjects, questioning our conventional wisdom and emerging with vital new information that will surprise even the most knowledgeable dog lovers. Can a purebred be as healthy as a mixed-breed? How many vaccines are too many? Should we rethink spaying and neutering? Is raw food really healthier than kibble, and should your dog be chewing more bones? Traveling the world and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote pulls together the latest research to help us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions. And as he did in Merle's Door, Kerasote interweaves fascinating science with the charming stories of raising Pukka among his many dog friends in their small Wyoming village.
Funny, revelatory, and full of the delights of falling in love with a dog, Pukka's Promise will help redefine the potential of our animal partners.
About Underwater Dogs
The exuberant, exhilarating photographs featured in Underwater Dogs have become a sensation. In more than eighty portraits, award-winning pet photographer and animal rights activist Seth Casteel captures new sides of our old friends with vibrant underwater photography that makes it impossible to look away. Each image bubbles with exuberance and life, a striking reminder that even in the most loveable and domesticated dog, there are more primal forces at work. In Underwater Dogs, Seth Casteel gives playful and energetic testament to the rough-and-tumble joy that our dogs bring into our lives.
