Holiday Gift Idea For Pet Lovers: The Grumbly Pug By Jennifer Niland Wright (with a discount code!!)

Over the weekend, I was contacted by a publisher who wanted to send me a free autographed, hardcover 1st edition copy of a book titled The Grumbly Pug

I normally never do this sort of post on the blog, but I cannot resist a book about an adorable pug!

As you all know, we adore our three pugs.

We dress them up in Christmas PJs.

And we are always taking cute pictures of them.

Now that I have lured you in with sweetness, let me tell you about this fabulous book. Friends, you totally need to purchase this book for pug and dog lovers in your life. It will make an excellent Christmas gift! And, by the way, I am under no obligation to write this post. That is how much I enjoyed the book.

The Grumbly Pug is the autobiography of the author Jennifer Niland Wright's first pug, Zoe Wright. It is told from the point of view of Zoe and it covers everything from pictures with Santa, wearing clothes, cuddles, veterinarian visits, peeing in the rain (Spoiler Alert: Pugs DO NOT like to do this) to siblings. Zoe has a lop-eared bunny rabbit brother named Thurman, a rescue pug sister named Coley, a cat sister named Holly and a German Shepherd brother named Jessie. As you can tell, the author is an animal lover. Zoe details how all of her siblings arrived and how she came to love them all.

What I loved most about the book was how often I could relate to all the little nuances of owning a pet and especially, loving a pug. Not to mention, the book is FULL of photos that will make you smile. 

There is a story behind every photo, too!

Finally, the author donates a portion of the proceeds of her book to two organizations: National Mill Dog Rescue, which rescues and re-homes breed dogs like pugs, and The Naz Children's Centre, which serves children ages kindergarten through the 6th grade in Jamaica in a holistic learning environment. I love when writers donate a portion of their work to charity.

If you would like to purchase a copy of The Grumbly Pug, the second edition is available at, Barnes & Noble or any independent book store for $21.95. 

However, my readers can receive an autographed first edition, hardcopy with FREE SHIPPING for $17.60 just by clicking this link:
