All Pets are Off

A Collection of Hairy Columns

by Tim Rowland

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
A collection of Tim Rowland's warm and funny animal columns, collected through the years as animals have come and gone throughout his writing years.
Of all the columns Tim Rowland writes, the ones that always get the biggest response are those about animals. Maybe it’s not too surprising that people pick critters over politicians: the animals are more intelligent and, on a per-pound basis, cost less to feed. ALL PETS ARE OFF is a comical collection of those warm and funny columns, collected through the years as animals have come and gone through Tim’s writing years, including his uneasy existences with Bubba the cat, the Jack Russell terrier named Jake Biscuit, various other creatures large and small and his latest charge, Opie, a buoyant Bouvier des Flandres.
