Hark Bookshelvers! It is time to sing like a Samoyed and chuckle like a Chihuahua as it's Off The Shelf time again!Back just in time for a drastic weather change in the UK Corrin, Nat & Steve get to catch up with their old buddy and all round 'top dude' Jordan Shelley! Jordan is a Dog trainer and behaviour specialist - Animal welfare campaigner - Presenter, producer and writer as well as all that great stuff we all used to chew the proverbials on the "Barking Mad Show" back in the day so it was lovely to catch up and see what Jordan has been up to in his, always interesting, life.It turns out that amongst other things Jordan has set up a very important petition to Ban the importation of dogs with cropped ears (a worthy cause indeed). In Jordans words: "There appears to be an alarming rise in dogs imported after undergoing the inhumane procedure of having their ears mutilated, fulfilling the desire for a certain ‘look’ & encouraging a procedure outlawed in England since 1899. It’s time to close this 121-year-old legal loophole".This is a very important cause and we would love if all you Bookshelvers in the UK could sign the petition.Link to the Petition to Ban The Importation Of Dogs With Cropped Earshttps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/333456?fbclid=IwAR2ynjv1l2yOHa5BQPWl9cFakanVn93a5hWXTj7-NzzvRZt4zYl2U9MY4OcLink to Jordan Shelley's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/jordanwshelleyLink to Steve & Corrins Goodall Dog Training Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/goodalldogs/Link to Nat's Training & Behaviour Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/Natdogs/Link to Drax's Galactic Adventure Facebook page (Nat's rescued Irish Wolfhound)https://www.facebook.com/Draxthewolfhound/Link to Steve & Sallys Childrens book 'Jack & Billy Puppy Tales'https://www.facebook.com/JackandBillyPuppyTales/Link to Grant Sharkey's Spotify page (Grant's amazing song 'Grow' features each week as our outro tune.https://open.spotify.com/artist/13PaCwwgVR77TbJH6XAVHQ?si=EOQGmWdCRCiXdECNmJvNAQ

What's going down Bookshelvers? We hope to find you well in this bizarre time we are all stuck in. What can we say about this episode? Firstly Jessica Pierce is such a wonderful person and we loved the time we spent talking to her about her two amazing books. We genuinely think that "The Last Walk" is a masterpiece and something that everyone, when ready, should read and "Run, Spot, Run" is a real eye opener. Secondly there are some deep and potentially upsetting topics covered. It's not easy talking about the inevitable day our Pets leave us but it is important. We (of course) try to keep it as light hearted as possible but we are sure you understand that some of the anecdotes and topics can cut deeply :) Enough waffle from us.... Please do let us know what you think. Jessica Pierce is a bioethicist and faculty affiliate at the Center for Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. She is the author of eleven books, including The Last Walk: Reflections on Our Pets at the Ends of Their Lives and Run, Spot, Run: The Ethics of Keeping Pets, and has published essays in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Guardian. She is a regular contributor to Psychology Today (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/all-dogs-go-heaven). Her website is http://jessicapierce.net. Her most recent book is Unleashing Your Dog: How to Give Your Canine Companion the Best Possible Life (with Marc Bekoff).Link to The Last Walk on Amazonhttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Last-Walk-Reflections-Their-Lives/dp/0226668460/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+last+walk&qid=1595002777&sr=8-1  Link to Run, Spot, Run on Amazon  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Run-Spot-Ethics-Keeping-Pets/dp/022620989X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3TGBZ6UTT9RGO&dchild=1&keywords=run+spot+run&qid=1595002902&sprefix=run+spot%2Caps%2C195&sr=8-1  Steve & Corrins Goodall Dog Training Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/goodalldogs/Nat's Training & Behaviour facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/Natdogs/Nats Drax page including the first 6 months videos on Drax (as mentioned)https://www.natdogs.com/draxDrax's Galactic Adventure Facebook page.https://www.facebook.com/Draxthewolfhound/Steve & Corrins Penny and the Giant Peach Facebook grouphttps://www.facebook.com/TeachesOfPeachesAndPenny/Steve and Sally's Book 'Jack & Billy: Puppy Tales'https://www.facebook.com/JackandBillyPuppyTales

Highly reconnected The Education of Will and yes, get the tissues out. If you've had a dog with some concerning issues you'll feel vindicated by some of the emotions you'll have felt.
