I've posted this the last two years, but it still applies: I totally understand why so many people love fireworks. Sure, there are slight negatives…they petrify poor animals, they open emotional wounds in vets suffering from PTSD, and they maim and even kill many people every year. But all of that pales next to the incredible joy of hearing very loud noise. ...
I am against personal fireworks.
Makes my Doodles very unhappy .
Give up this ‘Independence’ experiment anyway. It obviously isn’t working. Come back to the steady hand of the Queen.
It’s very dry here as well. I just hope nothing catches on fire.
I was extremely happy when we had torrential rains last night and the noise stopped. I’m hoping for the same again tonight. My two new rescues were terrified.
My 90 lb Golden was laying on my kitchen table shaking and drooling for hours. So much for fireworks are illegal in my state. The police do nothing to stop it. They should be banned, they’re stupid anyway.
Can we say sarcasm?
Thank you! I feel the same way. And they go on for a week!
My ole Aussie is hating life these days and nites.
it’s a sore point in most towns. when someone questions the need for fireworks not produced by the town it is all out war. one neighborhood with house on top of house takes joy in making a spectacle of fireworks knowing full well it bothers many. even the people with dogs claim it’s just about training and meds. not true. every now and then someone will explain the ptsd issue for vets. no one cares. they truly believe fireworks is a must and god given right and part of July 4th history. two years ago i was walking my no touch pup and a father/grandfather was teaching his son how to set off firecrackers around neighbor’s cars and yards. he was so distracted i had to say “please wait until we pass by.” the kid was ready to throw a firecracker when me and my dog were walking by. my dog would have tried to flee for her life. i was engaged in legal activity and them nope ... against the law and HOA rules (HOA rules are another controversial topic). i held my tongue and didn’t ask him to move his activity to the end of the street where there were no townhomes, no people, no cars.
My Goldens have to go out before it gets dark to go potty, or they WILL NOT go out at all.
I think the fact that they are going off every night the week before, past 11pm, and for days afterwards is ridiculous.
I'm sick of fireworks. Even though they are illegal here in Rhode Island they have been going off every night for months. My dogs have had it!!!!
I never understood how they could be used by the public anyway!. They were against the law in Florida except for agricultural use. In that case we have a big bunch of crows because we have two firework stores on one street. Fl changed the law recently but has always bugged ne.
Some homo sapiens arrest at the 5-yr old level.
And a ridiculous waste of tax payer money on the civic level. Multiple millions spent by localities that probably need it for other things.
I live in fear of the pasture catching on fire and the horses breaking through the fence.
I use to like fireworks until I got my own dog almost 30 years ago and seen what it did to him. I have never bothered with them since. I have a 6 month old puppy now, hopefully she will be okay through the noise tonight.
My neighbors were setting off explosions that were so loud it sounded like a bomb going off. My husband is a Vietnam Veteran. My poor senior collie was shaking and shivering . We hate this aspect of the fourth.
I just want to know how people can afford to pop endless amounts for weeks?
I have been dealing with fireworks every single night since Memorial Day. I am so over it. I can’t sit in my yard and enjoy the evening since my dogs are so stressed that I make sure they are in the house when they start. Why are people so selfish?
I am on your side David! I had a golden that despised thunderstorms and fireworks, so bad that in his later years we had to sedate him for 3 days around the fourth. I now have a yellow lab who has been around noises since he was young and as long as I don’t act afraid or react he is fine. He has even ridden in the truck to firework shows. I find the biggest problem to be the unexpected and dangerous displays that are set off by those with little or no regard to safety. Happy 4th of July to you and Debbie and all the furry ones.

I just finished "Collared". I've read and even reread and enjoyed your other Andy Carpenter books but this one really caught me. I did not see those plot twists coming. Kudo.
Such a deal!!! 💕
What a great deal!! Such generosity 😊
Sounds like a great deal.
I have one order for Muzzled and no interest in Hamilton.
Why would you want to watch Hamilton when you could be reading Muzzled?
I would give anything to see Hamilton again, but no grandchildren around. I thought about getting Disney+ just to see Hamilton, but they may have a two-year contract, which would be a waste in this household. I do listen to the soundtrack every day.
Looking forward to your book and Hamilton. We have seen Hamilton twice on stage but not with the original cast. So excited. As excited as reading your new book? 🤷♀️🤷♀️
I liked Hamilton today. But I bet I’ll like Puzzled more.
Such a deal !
I’m really glad Hamilton came out first, because when Muzzled comes out I’ll be too busy with that
Just a few more days!!
What a deal!!!!! 😉😂 Seriously though, I can't wait until Wednesday!!!
Or heads I win, tails you lose!

I STAND ON A LITERARY MOUNTAINTOP. For some truly famous people, one name is all that is necessary… Beyonce, Elvis, Lebron…one name clearly identifies them in the minds of millions. I am humbled to say that with the upcoming release of ‘Muzzled’, I have reached that exalted summit. When you hear ‘Rosenfelt’, does anyone else come to mind? I didn’t think so. ...
None of the other names do anything for me, but when I hear Rosenfelt I picture a fun read.
Nope, just yours lol
Yes. Andy Carpenter. 😉
Rosenfelt always means a very good read. Thanks!
I've spread the Rosenfelt word far and wide at the library where I work. That's been good for the patrons, but not so good for you though, because they BORROW, not BUY your books! Sorry about that! Looking forward to Muzzled!
I'm thinking Rosenfeld - Deli in Rehoboth Beach. Now I'm craving a hot corned beef on rye.
Actually, Yes. A doctor I knew! But I like you, too.
After you...all else is forgotten 😆
Rosenfelt it is.
You are wonderful and I love your books!❤️🐕🦺❤️🐕🦺❤️🐕🦺❤️🐕🦺
I'll repeat because it is worthy - Tara, just Tara.
Just order it! Look so forward to the read
love you and your dogs!!!!
No one. You are a god.
Love your books David yes yes yes
We are rescuing as well and building in Maine currently in Fla. Where in Mid Coast do you recommend rescuing? I am looking at Rescue Charlie's Friends site. Thank you for all you do!
You are right again!
I was telling my friend Shari Kelso Doty about you today and even ordered Dogtripping and sent it to her because she does wonderful things to help Northeast Arkansas Humane Society. I can’t wait for her to get it; I know she’ll love it. Can’t wait for Muzzled....hurry up 7th.

DAVID ROSENFELT IS A LITERARY GENIUS AND "MUZZLED" IS THE GREATEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN.
97% of my friends won't share this, because they are reprehensible slugs who I despise with every fiber of my being. The other 3% are extraordinary human beings who represent everything that is good and just in the world. I'm going to be watching who shares, copies and does every other stupid thing we're always called upon to do. If you don't do all that stuff, I will find out, and hunt you down. ...
Totally agree with the headlines!
These are great and funny books. Page turners
You kill me - no pun intended 😜
My two poodles are anxiously awaiting their pre-order copy.
I pre-ordered my copy!🐶😁
I am listening g to “ play dead” audio in the car for my 2hour commute, delightful!!
I aint no slug.
Love your sense of humor and of dogs
I am only doing this because l am easily manipulated and l love Andy
Love love love your sense of humour (yup, am Canadian) and your love of dogs....and.... your writing....please keep on keeping on💞
Wow! As the old saying goes who needs enemies with friends like that? 😊
Love love love your books...., can’t wait to read this one
If you hunt me down, please bring ALL your dogs with you so I can play with them; I love dogs! (Oh, and I love your books, too.)
You mean "whom I despise."
Far be it from me to be a reprehensible slug. I am a perfectly nice slug..
Oh my David, you made my day begin with hilarious laughter! Thank you 😂
I definitely want to be counted among the "good and just"! And if you hunt me down you can bring your doggies to my "cat" house for a visit, but then you have to take them home again!
Pre-ordered my copy! on my Nook. Can hardly wait! <3
Coincidence? I think not. If I were a gambler I would bet money we have Andy Carpenter fan in our neighborhood.
Please bring a book when you come. Not allowed out of assisted living.
Love all your books, your doggies, and what you have done in rescuing! Loved meeting you in Atkinson NH. Of course I'll share!
Thanks for your wonderful sense of humor...it’s so needed right now.
OMG! I cannot wait! Been with ya since the beginning! Sharing with all of my rescue friends!
Like!!!!!! But if you are hunting in my area be sure to bring a book!!!!!
The new Andy Carpenter epic, "Muzzled", comes out on Tuesday. Here's a photo of Zoey and some of her friends hanging out. They have nothing whatsoever to do with "Muzzled", but I've found that when I post a picture of our dogs, more people share it and I sell more books. ...
Can’t wait to read it! And I love Goldens!
Great marketing strategy!
We love seeing your dogs and reading your books.
This is so true. I definitely found your books by seeing the dog on the cover.
Can't wait, for now I am reading your older books. Can you provide a list of them in order of release? I love your dogs!!!!!
Love your books. Would also be interested in reading stories about your rescue doggies.
Post more pictures of your dogs! They always make me smile. Oh, and I like your books too.
Always happy to look at pictures of your dogs.....and read your books, over and over!!
All adorable! 😍 Only problem is your books are so easy to read and the plot flows easily so I am done in no time!
Smart man. ❤️
You're so right David! Shared!
Beautiful dogs! Love your books 📚
All Loki so sweet & cute. Just precious!!
I just love the Carpenter family!
cant wait to read it, I love Andy
I'll share to help you sell more books! I so miss the library. Summer Reading sucks when you can't check out a book. I had a wish list and I am so missing reading.
Can't wait. Dogs and books are two of my favorite things!
That's how I found the first one I read. Then I was hooked 🐕
Love Zoey's smile. What a life!!!!
You are so witty....makes me chuckle . 🤩
I don't even know if they give PHDs in marketing, but you should get one for this remarkable insight. I'll let you know if it works Tuesday when I wake up to see the cover of Muzzled on the Kindel machine.
Shameless commerce, David. LOL
Your pack is adorable! I would read your books even without these cute pictures..
This is chapter 2 of the audio version of "Muzzled". Spoiler alert...chapter one includes a couple of murders. drive.google.com/file/d/1q1P6lE6EnXoCZBUAwIWIv062eWOIHrl3/view ...
And I also love Grover Gardner. I read and listen to your Andy Carpenter books. Over and over again. The narrator is so important. Hint, hint. Narrator, Andy Carpenter books. Over and over.
No, no, no!!! I’m reading the book now. No spoilers, please! Thankfully there are no titles on the new chapter pages.
I’ve got it in my Wish List on Audible. I’ll wait to listen when it comes out next week. Can’t wait! And totally agree with Petra about Grover Gardner. And I listen over and over too!
Can't wait to read it!! Love your books. 🐕🐕❤
Pre-ordered Amazon Kindle version today.
I listen over and over too, it's the only series I do that with. It's remarkable really.
I've read all your books. Now I want to see dog pictures. Show us all your dogs!
I can't wait until next week when it comes out!! Grover Gardner is the perfect person for Andy Carpenter! Thanks David for another great masterpiece!!!
Why did you have to ruin the book telling me there are murders...
should be finished with Misery by Stephen King just in time for this one!
Pre-ordered on Audible, driving season with Grover
Cannot wait to read!!!
Thanks but I''ll pass & wait for the book.😉
Grover Gardner is Andy personified!
I ❤️❤️❤️ Andy Carpenter....
I liked the second chapter. Can’t wait for next Tuesday
I couldn't get the audio to load, darn!
Will wait for the book! Can't wait!!
Back in the pre-virus days, when an Andy Carpenter book came out, this is what it looked like in front of bookstores. 'Muzzled' comes out next Tuesday, and I am worried. Scenes like this will make curbside pickup very difficult. ...
Oh, my! Can we order it online? 🤣😄🤣
Nah, now we just click!!
I will be participating in a virtual mob while purchasing the newest Andy book on my Kindle....
Don't worry...pre-ordered so it will be on my kindle when I get up...very early so I can get started!!
You are just too hilarious!
Will the audio be released at the same time?
Hey, that's me! The guy just left of center, wearing the hat!
This is how I'll prepare for the July 7th release of Muzzled, though...
I’ve got AMAZON no problem Even UN “Muzzled” I’m buying it Thank you for these books ❤️❤️❤️ Tara adventures
I preordered mine for download on my Nook. I prefer dog next to me on sofa feet up and read.
It certainly would! 😂
Luckily, I won a copy from Goodreads Giveaway! However, I usually get audible versions. I’ll miss Grover Gardner reading it to me.
Thank goodness for Amazon. Same mob but from the comfort of our own homes.
There are some things in life worth risking your health for. Although, I plan on wearing my ventilator to the bookstore.
POTUS would have huge envy
Pre-ordered and will be at my door. 😀
Reading a good book is one of the cherished pleasures of this COVID lock down. And an Andy Carpenter mystery is one of the best !
You are hysterical
Preordered my amazon audible copy for hubby and I to listen to together.
I will be downloading my audio version read by my favourite narrator, Grover Gardner
You need fast customer service reps to get them out to the curb.
I will be at Barnes and Noble as soon as they open!🐕🦺
Did you ever notice how some authors increase their number of Facebook posts when they are about to release a new book? Well, after months of holding back, I'm here to call it what it is...blatant self promotion. It makes me sick, and I'm going to continue to speak out against it, at least until July 7th. ...
Can’t wait.... love your books
i was lucky enough to win a copy off Goodreads !
You definitely should!💖
Already preordered. Can’t wait
Preordered! Can’t wait!
No! I am so shocked!!! lol .. counting the days!!!
You’re the best. LMAO 😂
I'm patiently waiting ...
See u in Scottsdale!!
I can't wait! ♡ that ass, Andy Carpenter!
Love the humor!!!
Omg I’m obsessed with dog noses and that one is completely boopable. I can’t wait to read it.
I preordered from Amazon - it should arrive on the day it's being released... which is my birthday! Best birthday present I can think of!😁🎈
I can’t wait.
👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Can’t wait!
Found one called Silent Bite on my library website today. When is it coming out?
My copy has been pre ordered for several weeks , can't wait !
Love your books!
I don’t accept, because I refuse to choose only 7! I need... how many books do you have? That many days.
I really like the Andy Carpenter series!
I could post 7 per day
Ditto - not a challenge at all!!
Which to choose!? Which too choose?!
Sorry. I can't limit it to 7
The K Team is one of your most recent#😍
LOVE THEM ALL!!!
I’m reading Hounded now and enjoying it
I will recognize and remember favorite stories as I see them. ❤️🐾
My favorite is always the one I'm currently reading! Sadly I am just about through reading all 22 of your Andy Carpenter series 😢 Plus K Team, and Day Tripping!
I accept! First!
Love them all!
Couldn't pick 7! So am choosing all the books you've written!!!!
Love them all
Love them all! Here is only one
Best. Book. Ever!
My daughter just got a golden puppy named Zoe. She is absolutely adorable.
My husband and I have read them all! We absolutely love your books. We look forward to reading your next one
My dogs ate the cover of the first “Andy” book I read - it was the one with Yogi.
I love all the David Rosenfelt books.
I rarely post when we lose a dog, but Benji is an exception. Thirteen years ago a woman who worked at our vet’s office, Julie Pantoja, told me Benji was abandoned there and asked me to take him. She did this even though the vet/owner of the place told her not to ‘bother’ me. I’m very glad she didn’t listen. Benji was so scared that he urinated when I petted him. He's been a perfect dog, and was the last one left from our ‘Dogtripping’ trek East. He will be missed. ...
So so sorry.
My old dog used to cross her legs like that, she was a real lady! 😄 RIP Benji.
So sorry for your loss.
I am so, so sorry for your loss.
I thought I recognized him from "Dogtripping."🐾🐾🌈 Peace to you and your pack.
Truly sorry for your loss. 🐾🌈💔
Lucky dog, he lived his best life. Last of the Dogtrippers? Wow.
What a beautiful dog, sorry for your loss
I'm sorry for your loss. Benji had a wonderful life, thanks to Julie for reaching out to you.
It is amazing how they come in to our lives like it was meant to be.
I'm so sorry. It doesn't matter how many times you have had to say goodbye, each loss hurts.
I am so sorry for your loss such a beautiful boy. ❤
So sorry for your loss of Benji. Wishing you peace and joy in your memories.
So very sorry for your loss. He's had a magnificent, happy and loving life.
Run free sweet Benji and watch over those who love you-so sorry for your loss.
love those crossed paws...so sorry for your loss but know Benji had a safe and loving home with you and your wife...I read the book about your trip east with all the dogs!
So sorry for your loss! 😢😢😢
What a beautiful dog! I'm so glad he was cherished for 13 years. I'm sorry for your loss.
Oh puppy, glad he had you, glad you had him.
So sorry! 😢
So sorry for your loss. Glad you were able to give him a great life and he was able to leave you with wonderful memories 😞
We must be a country of morons. I called AAA yesterday, and of course a computer answered. It asked me what state I was calling from, and then said:
“Examples would be Florida, California and New York" ...
Could be the state of "dispair" at this point of the COVID-19 isolation...
State of confusion?
So 'state of despair' is not the right answer?
I wouldn't be surprised at those that can't answer the question. LOL
When I call in my meter reading to the gas company, I’m told to “enter my account #, one digit at a time”. Huh?
So if one of those didn't fit, you were just flat out of luck!
They probably didn’t want you to say confusion, anxiety, or anger..for instance
You just never know how dumb people are.
And we’re getting worse. Next step- idiots!
Dumb and dumber
All I can say is at least I've got plenty of good reading materials to take my mind off the morons that I see on the news everyday. I'm especially looking forward to your next release. And I always love the dog pictures
Like the person who asked, “hey what was the name of that ship that sank in Titanic?”...David, they walk among us! Not you or me though🤣
For real! Maybe we should move to Israel, God’s country.
Sure, but what about New Jersey?
This brewski has me in an altered state.
I wanna talk with someone when I call a place. Plus someone lost a job because of that computer answering the phone. 😠
Oh, the stories I COULD TELL!
Laughing out loud! That is a first for me! But in case I was confused, I would’ve been covered living in SW Florida🧐
My prescription service needs my birthday to verify I am me and they say “ please tell us the 4 digit year you were born, here’s an example -1965” really? People don’t know how to say the year they were born!?
The question that shocked me personally was: “What is the capital of Amsterdam “? 😳😔
I actually had someone (an adult) ask me once if Detroit was a state. Ignorance is real.
The dumbing down of America. Someone has some kind of computer degree to come up with that.😕
There are no words for this.
David Rosenfelt updated their cover photo.

I am looking forward to reading it!😊
Kaitlyn Thomas Heinze great reading material for pregnant times
Looking forward to seeing you in July and reading Muzzled!!
Great we’ll clear off the bed.
Sorry. Not you Lynne it that ok also. Meant for David. San Diego.
Already pre-ordered, of course!
Already preordered both books! Cant wait.
Love your books
can't wait, I love all your books
I was finally able to read The K Team when my library opened for "collect" only, had it on reserve just as they had to close. Excellent book, just like all the others,
Mine is on order!
It has been on pre-order forever. Looking forward to it.
Our library has a copy on order!
Every day at 5 PM, Murphy (Mastiff) and Aggie (Newfie) go into the bathroom where they get a special chewie. They must know how to tell time, because they always sit outside the bathroom like this, waiting impatiently, starting at 4:45. ...
Sounds like an important moment of the day.
My dogs do this for supper at 5 pm. They also can tell time.
Mine start at 3:30 for dinner at 4:00 and don't be late!
I am getting a new addition in August and Murphy is on my list of potential names. 🐾💕
So smart and cute! See you in July David @ Poison Pen
Daylight savings time doesn’t even fool our 2 labs when it’s dinner time!!🤣
Dogs have an uncanny sense of time..amazing! At 9 pm sharp ours want a tiny treat and then put to bed. Can't be 9.05 or if we are tired and want to do it at 8:30..nope. They will take the treat then ask again at 9pm sharp for another:)
I agree. It’s amazing how they seem to know exactly what time it is. Especially when there is a treat involved. Love it!!
I love how Murphy sits.
That is so adorable
Mine does it when it’s time for walkies!
I absolutely believe dogs can tell time.
They’re even smarter than you think. When I’m there they get their treat at 8:00 p.m. They don’t start hanging by the bathroom door until 7:45 on those days. Pretty clever when you think about it!
My dog knows exactly when it is dinner time! You are right! They can tell time. Our dogs are so smart!!
My dog can definitely tell time and even day of the week. Something special happens on Mondays and she always knows!
At least they aren’t pacing back-and-forth at your feet and looking up at you with sorrowful eyes.
Yes dogs are smart when it come to food. Our Skyler gets a little nightly meal She sit in front of you and stares at you.
Of course they know when its 5pm! Its a dog thing.
Brilliant of course!!!
My cocker used to do this every day at 4:15. His dinner was at 5:00. We could set our clock by him. He died this past March at age 16.
They have an inate timer mechanism. 🤣
My Tibetan Terrier new several times, when husband came home for lunch and after work and what door to sit at, same with me.
It's not just a dog thing. Cats do the exact same thing.
Dogs CAN tell time. They know when it's mealtime, walk time, snack time. They let us know!

That looks extremely comfortable. I think hes on to something
Greyhound owners call this a bed fail. Very common.
Our Lily does that too
Three of our seven often sleep in this position too. I always think it must be too warm to sleep all in the bed, so they sleep half in and half out. I think this because that’s why I’ll sleep with my legs out from under the covers, but my chest and arms covered.
Circulation! He knows what's good for him. ❤
My Coton male almost always ends up with his behind only in a bed...likes his head lower?
very reminiscent of 'the sleddie head hang' Rescue sleddies sleep bodies on beds but head on floor. Or hanging over the side of the bed! Lovable creatures they are. <3
Maybe it feels nice to elevate his hips! Or maybe circulation like someone else said, that makes sense too!
My golden retriever does the same thing
He looks comfy 😂🐾❤️
Our lab does that
Helps the blood reach his head
Maybe his hip joints hurt? It's adorable
Ours does that too. I call it "Melted dog"
I never realized how closely related mastiffs and pugs are. In this pose, Murphy looks like a supersize pug!
Excellent point Heather.
It’s called bed fail.
You say he's wrong. I say it's "Murphy's Law"
