Oberon the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions wolfhound Orlaith and Boston terrier Starbuck, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O´Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who´s there to investigate. But they also recognize the body - or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself. The police, hampered by human senses of smell and a decided lack of canine intuition, obviously can´t handle this alone. Not with Atticus likely in danger. Oberon knows it´s time to investigate once more - for justice! For gravy! And possibly greasy tacos! Alongside his faithful Druid, Oberon and the other loyal hounds navigate by nose through Portland to find a bear-shifter friend with intel, delicious clues at the victim´s home, and more squirrels. Always more squirrels! But will our hungry band of heroes be able to identify the culprit before someone else is murdered? Will there be mystery meat in gravy as a reward or tragedy in store for the world´s (or at least the Pacific Northwest´s) greatest dog detective? Like its predecessor The Purloined Poodle, the latest of Oberon´s Meaty Mysteries novella, The Squirrel on the Train, is not to be missed by fans of Kevin Hearne´s New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series. 1.

Do you want to be prepared when you receive a new puppy into your home? Do you want to know how to develop a friendly pup? Are you struggling to get your new pup trained? Do you wish you could teach your puppy to do tricks? When you are considering purchasing a high-energy ball of fluff for your home, you may not consider all the work that goes into teaching a new puppy how to behave. While puppy training can be difficult, it does not have to be! If you use the techniques taught in this book and properly train your pup on the first try, it be an amazingly smooth process. One of the biggest reasons that puppies end up in shelters or abandoned is because their owners simply do not expect the work that must go into training. They may not have time to train the pup or they may do it incorrectly. The problem with incorrect training is that you only have a clean slate with your puppy once and any negative interactions can affect their behavior permanently or cause bad behaviors that are incredibly difficult to undo. The good news is that while training a puppy can be difficult, it is nowhere near impossible. This book offers a step-by-step guide to teach you the proper way to train your puppy. While you may find there is more than one correct method to train a pup, others must be taught specifically in order to achieve long-term success. Some of the things you will learn in this book include: How to prepare your family for training your pup Teaching your pup to be gentle and allow veterinarians and groomers to handle him or her Training your pup on household rules Several methods of housebreaking your puppy Crate training Obedience commands How to care for your puppy How to teach your puppy to do tricks And more 1.
