About the Book:
Inspired and inspiring, What The Dogs Tell Me opens a new chapter in human-dog relationships. Dog-whisperer, poetry-shouter. Rose Lesniak has written a one-of-a-kind book from a one-of-a-kind poet. What The Dogs Tell Me is poetry that is gentle and loving, with a witty syntax and eyes that look at you awaiting a response. Then again, there’s a lot of barking and rowdiness and sadness too, as her 2 Wheatons, Martha and Joey, move through her life and pass away. This is an interspecie Book of Advice you’d be wise to heed. And you’ll find a paw on every page just to show that the co-author is present too. This is a treasure for dog lovers who want to know what’s going on inside that furry head. Read Rose’s book and expand your conversation with your 4-legged friends.
