A Dog's Tale: In Two Parts

In chapter two of our canine chronicle, we find our protagonist has taken a quieter, more passive approach to life than he did in Chapter One. This change in the plot provides a rare glimpse at our beloved hero's inner workings and vulnerability.

Click here to see details of the four "softer side" dog traits:

How to vegetate
How to endure deep shame
How to practice mind control
How to grovel

As you can see from the humorous illustrations and witty "how to" labels, this chapter focuses on teaching us life lessons in relaxation, humility, persuasion and forgiveness.

. Made in the USA.

Patricia Carlin

Patricia started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business. Patricia designed and wrote copy for several product lines for the new venture.

When Red Wheel Weiser Conari Press noticed the glassware at a gift show, they saw book potential. With their help, Patricia produced two books: "Glam Girl" and "Geeky Girl".

Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says. "After I had my daughter I rediscovered the power these little sketches have to tell a story. Drawing was a fun way to communicate without language." collection

          Picture doesn't last

          By 

          from Leesburg, Virginia

          Comments about A DOG'S TALE GLASSES - CHAPTER 2:

          Great glasses for that "instant" gratification. BUT the pictures do not last and fade over time whether you wash by hand or wash on the top shelf, gently china cycle of your dishwasher. Very disappointing. I would not buy these again nor give as a gift anymore. Cute idea but the company needs to perfect their "inking" process on the glass.

            Nice glasses. They say the recommend hand washing, but I hope being in on the top shelf of the dishwasher will be okay over time.

            I gave these to my son for Christmas since we are all such dog friendly people. I was soooo disappointed that these are not dishwasher safe. That is quite a limitation for a busy young family.
