Guess Who’s Joined Our Holiday Gift Guide: Nancy Levine 0

Good morning, I am back with a cute Christmas Story called Homer for the Holidays  written by Nancy Levine. The book is called Homer for the Holidays and I read the entire story on the way to my dad’s during Thanksgiving.

I will be back after Christmas to share my thoughts with you on Homer for the Holidays because neither David or Charlie has seenHomer for the Holidays yet, as I put Homer for the Holidays up to read to them Christmas Even night. As I know Homer for the Holidays is going to make a wonderful and fun tradition for us each year.

Homer for the Holidays is the story of how he encounters a baby pug lost and alone on a cold winter day, and helps the puppy find a home. After running into all sorts of trouble on their quest, they receive help from Santa Claus himself! Will Homer finally get his Christmas wish? Dog lover or not, this inspiring story will set the perfect holiday mood!

Letters to a Young Pug (Tao of Pug)

Otto, the sage old pup who taught Wilson the ways of the Tao-te Ching, the ancient Chinese book of wisdom, is finally ready to rest his bones and retire to Boca Raton. Wilson is next in line to take his place as Master of the Taoist put lineage, but before he can assume his rightful position, he must train his own successor, the young pup Homer. Once Homer has learned the lessons of the Tao and earned his yin-yang badge, Wilson can take his place on Otto’s throne.

Through funny letters and charming photographs, Wilson convers with his apprentice on the subtle wisdom of the Tao-te Ching. But unfortunately for Wilson, Homer’s not the easiest pupil to teach. He’s more interested in filling his stomach than feeding his mind. And he’d rather nap his way to wisdom. The young pug’s path to enlightenment is chock full of surprises, as Wilson is about to find out.

The Tao of Pug Kindle Edition

Playful, endearing, and clearly profound, The Tao of Pug looks at the big picture from the eyes of a little dog.

Meet Wilson the Pug, a dog with a great deal of wisdom to share. A much-admired spiritual teacher, Wilson lives by the principles of the Tao Te Ching, the ancient Chinese text on the art of living. Passed on through the generations from his ancestor Pug-tzu—companion to the philosopher and author of the Tao Te Ching, Lao-tzu —the wisdom of the Tao has helped Wilson lead a simple, peaceful, and fulfilling life.

Deciding it was time to share this spiritual knowledge, Wilson enlisted the help of his owner (and photographer), Nancy Levine, to bring you The Tao of Pug. Each photograph captures Wilson’s charm and humor as he illustrates the timeless principles of the Tao Te Ching with examples from his active life alongside quotes from the original text. With his adorably expressive face, funny poses, and trademark yin-yang coat, Wilson has an unmistakable magnetism that has won him countless admirers, of all canine and philosophical persuasions.

Wilson’s comical lessons on life pair beautifully with Levine’s delightful photographs to make The Tao of Pug a must-have book for pug lovers of any age.

The Ugly Pugling: Wilson the Pug in Love (Tao of Pug) Kindle Edition

 

Wilson the Pug, everyone’s favorite canine Taoist, has fallen in love. His soul mate, Hedy, with her wrinkly skin and floppy ears, is a real looker. But the lovable dog Wilson thinks is a fellow pug is actually a mastiff puppy, and in no time at all the difference between the two dogs become comically obvious. After trying with little success to appear more like a big dog (by lifting weights, practicing his bark, and trying to smooth out his signature pug wrinkles), Wilson is heartbroken. Things look bleak for the star-crossed lovers, but once again, the wisdom of the Tao comes shining through: “The Master acts on what he feels and not what he sees.” Wilson and Hedy couldn’t appear more different, but as we all know, it’s what’s inside that really counts.

The Ugly Pugling is the enchanting companion book from the stars of The Tao of Pug and Letters to a Young Pug, and is another must-have for dog lovers!
