Admittedly, the face on the cover is unspeakably cute, but the joys of The Puppy Diaries only begin with that diminutive golden retriever. When New York Times managing editor Jill Abramson carried home nine-week-old puppy Scout, she didn't realize that her new four-legged family member would also be a boon to her writing career. Her column about Scout on her paper's website became a major hit, inspiring thousands of responses from other pet owners. The Puppy Diaries goes far beyond that popular feature, providing useful dog raising tips as well as fetching stories. Described by its publisher as "part memoir, part manual, part investigative report," the book contains valuable information about adoption alternatives, puppy diet, and dog-training techniques. Adorably useful.
