June 2016 Book of the Month Though it’s primarily aimed at dogs, humans too – particularly those who share their home with a canine companion – will find lots to inform and entertain them in Maggie Mayhem’s comprehensive guide. Maggie, a border terrier, lives with two humans – Kim Sears and her husband – and clearly has their care down to a fine art. In her debut book, she shares a wealth of tips on such things as grooming and hygiene, nutrition – she’s very good on how to get your human to share food with you – and the all-important communication (‘no’ she explains, is a term of encouragement).
