I constantly ask myself…why was I blessed with this literary brilliance? Am I worthy? The first two advance reviews for “Bark of Night” are in. Publishers Weekly says “A treat for mystery fans and dog lovers. Andy and his cohorts are a pleasure to spend time with.” Kirkus says, “One of the best hooks ever by an author who specializes in them. Even dog haters should lap it up.” ...

Can't wait on the new book!

I love your literary brilliance as a animal lover your like family can't wait to start the new book counting down the days

Pre-ordered

Love the Andy Carpenter books! I’ve always been curious why the “song talking” bit between Andy and Sam was scrapped.

Just finished my first book of yours that I read Play Dead I couldn't put it down. Ordered 3 more trying to catch up, starting from the beginning. Currently reading First Degree.

When does it come out?And btw, I loved how Andy and Pete were characters in the the newest Doug Brock book ! ❤️❤️❤️ Well done!

Will be pre-ordering... Love your books!!

You are a national treasure. ❤️🐶

Ordered it

I am thankful for your literary brilliance. I can't imagine a world without Andy Carpenter. ❤️ And now Doug Brock.❤️

On my list

Recently started with a new doctor. In going over my history, he asked if I had a gastroenterologist- of course that reminded me of one of my favorite hypochondriacs! I told him about the urology conversation, but at least I refrained from saying that I vomit on gastroenterologists!😂

Thankful you have another book coming out this year. I need more than two a year.

I am listening to Black and Blue now. Got a total kick out of the fact that Andy and Pete are in it. The narrator doesn’t sound at all what I picture Andy sounding like.

Who won the guess on the mixed breed big guy you have?

Love your Books

Can't come fast enough !

On order! Can't wait! 📖

We lost one of the all time greats today. Jenny (on the left) was close to 17 years old and one of our smallest dogs at 50 pounds, but she dominated the house. Amazingly, her passing leaves only one dog left from our 'Dogtripping' move 8 years ago. That is Benji, the dog on the right. ...

You have given so much to well deserved dogs. God Bless You.

So very sorry 😐

So sorry for your loss. All of your babies have been loved and lucky to be rescued and by you.

No matter how old, it sure is tough to lose a pet. 8 years since your cross country trip? Doesn't seem that long.

Sincere condolences

So sorry.. its never easy to lose a pet. But wow - 17 years is amazing! What do you feed them?

So sorry for your loss😞

So very sorry! Hugs to your family!!

So sorry for your loss! Seems like only yesterday that you did the Dogtripping!

17 years. That's a full dog life, for sure. I know she loved every minute at your house.

Love your books and what you are doing with the dogs!!!

So sorry. Always tough to lose one of our furbabies. 💔

REST IN PEACE run to the Rainbow Lodge and have a ball free of pain .Lots of pets to play with .

Thinking of you and the pack. Godspeed, little Jenny. Run like the wind!

Sorry to hear about Jenny, hugs 💗

So sad. Very sorry. I have “Dogtripping” on my bookshelf. Amazing trip. Very glad you are in Maine!

Sorry for your loss. Prayers of comfort and peace. Hard to believe only one dog left from your Dogtripping..

So sorry for your loss! I am sure you have many wonderful memories of Jenny. Always hard to lose four legged member of the family❤😢

I'm so sorry, David Rosenfelt. I totally understand. In the past 8 months I have lost two of my heart strings, Punkin and Gem. Both rescues and both the bravest, most amazing little beings. I remember Dogtripping, and laughing until I cried. For those of us actively involved in rescue, this is the bittersweet part of our journey ... when that day comes that we must let them go with love. THANK YOU and your wife for all that you do for so many!!! Love and blessings from OH. (I, too, am a transplant from the great "O.C." 🙂

So sorry. She had a good life with you.Loved reading about the move.

I loved your story Dogtripping. So sorry for your loss.🐾💔😢

I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you for all you do for these dogs. You’re a great author and human being.

I am so sorry.... My heart aches for you and your family. 🙁

❤️

So sorry for your loss! She’ll be waiting at the rainbow bridge!

A contest...here is our new addition to the family, Bear. We have no idea what he is a mix of, so we're going to do a DNA test to find out. If you want to guess, tell me what you think his two dominant breeds are, with percentages. Fyi...he's about 115 pounds. The closest to the right answer gets an advance reader's copy of "Bark of Night", the Andy Carpenter book coming out in July. ...

Mastiff/Lab?

Lab & shepherd

Yeah, that would my guess too. Half lab and half mastiff.

Lab and mastiff

Lab and mastiff would be my guess!

Shari pai/ Lab

10% bork, 20% snuffle, 20% floof, 10% slurp lick, 20% monchings, 10% tippy tapping = the goodest of bois.

Lab 50%/Mastiff 30%. Whoknowswhatelse 20%

Mastiff/lab

Lab and Newfoundland

Lab 59%/ Rottie 41%

40% Mastiff 30% lab

Lab/Cur

I see lab and Caine corso

48%mastiff, 52%lab 🐶🐶💕

Labrador retriever, bloodhound and mastiff

Mastiff and lab is my guess also.

20+ lab, 20+ leonberger

70% Lab and 30% Mastiff. Welcome Bear! You've landed in the best home.

Great Dane and Lab

Lab 75% Italian Mastiff 25%

Lab 75% x Rottweiler 25%

Lab mix with some breed of hound. Beautiful dog!!

He's adorable! Lots of Mastiff, but with such little feet, could be mixed with a mutt.

40 black lab and 60 Mastiff

I need some moral support here. This is Murphy, our 130 pound Mastiff. Murphy has a tendency to 'expel gas', especially at night. Unfortunately, I know that because the 'expulsion source' shares my pillow with me. When I express displeasure with this, Debbie tells me to stop complaining and just turn and face the other direction. Am I not right that adults have the right to sleep 'gas-free'? ...

Comment on Facebook

Welcome to my world.

No, that would only be in a world without dogs and that isn't right.

When you're that cute, gas probably doesn't smell, right?!

Try gas x. Get the kind that melts as soon as it hits their tongue. I have 3 stinky Danes who took over my king size bed. Gas x helps with bloat but it helps when they are extra gassy

Our natural gas source. It springs eternal and will melt your face...

I give mine Gas-X

It makes you realize you are not alone!

And doggies have a right to gas. You loose

You could always sleep on the couch...

You gave up that right when you got your first dog!

Perhaps Murphy is tolerating someone's "expulsion" as well...😉

Murphy says: Love me, love my farts.

Try adding a large tablespoon of canned pumpkin in their food. Worked great for my mastiff

You could always give him a taste of his own medicine and see how he likes it!

Lily can clear a room, and she’s only eight pounds. So I can’t imagine (don’t want to either) . . .

Deal with it Lol

oh, just turn over and face the other way! 🙂

Murphy needs his own bed.

Question is, if it were vice versa, would Murphy complain?

You are his hero and he is the wind beneath your pillow...or something like that.

youll never win this one. get him a big bed beside yours. or fart in his face and let him see how it feels.

Sure! He needs a Beano! ❤️

The canned pumpkin is a good idea.

How can you even think about upsetting that face?

But look at that face. How can you not forgive that sweet face? Yours aren't roses, my friend.

Love the photo. I think a Bull Terrier would make an excellent cover photo, too, BTW. 😉

Yes he is 👏👏👏

Looking forward to this book. Love all his books!

Yep. If you need help proofing feel free to send me a copy.

I just finished enjoying Black & Blue, can't wait for the next Andy Carpenter!

Yeah!!!

As amazing as it sounds,I believe the books are getting even better. How can he improve on perfection? Yet that seems to be happening. 😮

I'm up to number 14 so hopefully by the time I'm ready to read this one my library will have it. I love your books.

That he is.😍

Hahaha he is truly a treasure. I still think the Andy Carpenter stories would be great for a TV series. 🙏 🐶

can't wait!!!!

Love all your books can’t wait for this one

Damn straight! 😎

I'll agree with that.......

Yay!!!!

I can’t wait!!! Andy is my favorite character ever!

Can't wait!

Yes, yes, yes. I vote for a tv series. Now, who can play Andy Carpenter‼️‼️‼️

Yea!

He really is an international treasure. Not just national.

Hi Zoey!!!! Best darn sales pitch I've heard in a long time! Got me sold!!! 🙂

You are right... it got my attention! Now... off to buy the book!

I will, I love your books and I love dogs! It’s a win - win. 😊

Just ordered it 😀

Damn, I love Goldies! Especially old ones. <3

She's so beautiful.

David, how old is the oldest golden you have owned?...just curious.

Hi Zoey beautiful golden! You are right about posting dog pics, David. Absolutely will grab people's attention!

Love your books but have to wait for them to come to my local library as I am on a fixed income. Love your dog too.

I did, I’m waiting on Amazon to deliver it as we speak!

Book purchased ...dog is smarter than you. Doesn’t have to work for a living.

Dogs sell! I have noticed a fast increasing number of dogs in TV ads for everything from household products to cats and trucks. There is barely a picture on my phone that does not include my sweet little pug.

Rosie loves Zoe.

What a sweet <3 Dad

Zoey is an excellent marketing ploy!!👍

Is Tara based on her? I know when you traveled cross country in the RVs you had several. Just asking!

It worked......I’m buying one!

I have em all. Ur books are the best

Received my copy

What is it about? Where do I get it.

Done!!

Had it pre-ordered. Now the agony of the wait for it! Seeing Zoe helps.

Guess i should have done that with my book ! Lol

Am listening to it as I type! Audible!

I wondered about that.

Mine was delivered to my Kindle last night 😁

I’m heading to the bookstore thank you for your Andy books too love them!

My pre-ordered copy is on the way.

Today should be a national holiday, so everyone could buy and read Black and Blue.

Got it last night, Gota go now....reading

Rushing out to get it today!

Mine will be delivered today!

Almost finished reading mine. Sure is a page turner! Will be looking forward to July when next book is out!❤😄

Received my copy ~2AM.❤️

Mine is in my library 😇

I picked up my copy from the library today.

This is an EXCELLENT read!

I have already started reading mine!

Am waiting for mine to be delivered today!!!!

I did see a difference in traffic!

Started to read the book this morning. 📖

I'm off tomorrow. Stop at the bookstore on my to do list.

Got my copy today from Audible. But, why isn't Audible featuring the book in their "new in fiction" section? What a dumb mistake they're making!

Cannot wait to get it. This weekend for sure

Loved it! Thank you!

Reading Black and Blue now and loving the crossover of Andy Carpenter and Pete Stanton. 😍

Absolutely fantastic book!

Going to start listening to this tonight on my way home. 👏👍 I am loving this! Especially the blending of characters I absolutely love.

This is Missy, the only small dog in a house full of behemoths. She takes no crap from anyone...ever.

She is beautiful and I love her name (also my nickname). (: Love your books!

Thank you for taking in and caring for these beautiful dogs! I loved reading your book how you traveled across the states with 25 dogs!

And that, my friends, is why I read your books ♥️📚♥️🐾

💖💖

I am so looming forward to reading it!

And I love her freckled paws!

Three more days until Amazon loads my kindle with this wonderful book. Looking forward to another great read!

Gosh, I dog that can read, you really do have it all, lol

It will be. It’s coming Wednsday

Nice to have support at home.

I plan to help Missy with her wish. How could I disappoint her?

She is a beauty ! Actually reading your book now catching some sun here in Arizona. It is really good,David.❤

Good pup!!

Love your books

Love your books! How old is Missy?

Love it.... Lol 💕

She's definitely Daddy's Girl. 😊

Such a lovely girl!!!!

A dog that says no to a biscuit? Unbelievable. 🐶

Can't let Missy down!

She's not only small, she's smart too! 😃

She’s a pretty girl. I love her “freckles” on her legs. And I would love to know how you keep those hard wood floors so un-scratched with all those dogs! I have two and my floors are trashed.

Tell Missy I'm reading it 1st chance I get; I'll not let her down

Good girl! (You know who gives you treats, right?). ❤️

This little dog rules our roost. 14 years old, very few teeth, had a hard life prior to rescue - but she’s not afraid to put any of the big dogs into their place!

Great story. Loved it. Want more.

I would much rather listen to a good book than a basketball game!

I love all your literary masterpieces !

I am looking more forward to reading your book than watching the forwards play basketball 🏀!!

I Can't wait!!

You're just so funny - I love your posts, and your books, and your love of rescue dogs, etc. : )

My favorite author too !

Can't wait for the audo version.. (of the book, not basketball) 🙂

I just pre-ordered the next Andy Carpenter. I guess there’d be time to catch up on this series.

Watch a b-ball game, David? That is a wonderful idea for passing the time till your book arrives! XOXOXO

Beautiful babies!! Big dogs rule!!

Being the Poop Picker Upper of my two 46 pound dogs I can only imagine the size of these 2!!!!!!!

I love the pictures of your dogs. It makes me jealous, though. I have 1 dog that can't get along with others. 😢

Sweet babies!

That is magical.

Adorable 😍

I think there’s room for one more!

That’s a lot of dog. I think that’s a good thing.

Yikes, not a lap dog, I'm guessing, ol

Lee Ragozzino

Sooooo much love right there

Awesome!

Must be a big bed.

I've always wondered how you find time to write with the massive poop pick-up you must have! 🤣😮

So. Did they flatten it or what?

As long as there's still room for you to squeeze in, it's all good.

Bless you!

It makes the bed very lovable with all those Puppies

Hey...I think Hallmark needs to make mystries from your books. They are moral and fun. Shop this to them! The dog lovers are in!

Love it.

And I have problems with two goldens

A paw photobomb! LOL! They are adorable!!

Awe....that is just a beautiful picture!

Well that is what beds are for!

Nothing like canine friendship! 🐾 ❤ 🐾

Let sleeping dogs lie!

I love watching them play.

Do they get tips for their entertainment? Think of how much you save on theater tickets.

Love them. I am trying to find a way to make it easier for my senoir (12 1/2 year old ) St Bernard Nula to get up on our bed with the Akbash Cu and Molly the Boxer.

I think you're going to need to buy a double king size bed! Keep writing🖤💛💙

So....where are you going to sleep?

Thought you might like another photo of those two. What to do when you have to share a chair.

What good babies!

Love your books can’t wait for next dog book!

That's so sweet. They're spooning each other.

David you need a bigger bed!❤

Ok. Have to ask. How do you keep the house clean?

Inquiring minds

There is only 2 of us

Not including the cats 🐈

You made Murphy’s butt look big!

I see this in your future David! Murphy, Aggie and Onyx are hoping for the new bed! LOL

What an amazing wonderful life you live⭐️⭐️⭐️

You are shameless. I'll buy the book. For Onyx.

Well I'm sad for Onyx. I hear you're having WINTER up there!

I already preorder it. Let Onyx sleep in your bed until you get him his own bed.

Tragic 😱 can we pre-order on Amazon?

Maybe we start a go fund me for poor Onyx...lol

Already preordered should qualify for a seat on a lazyboy:)

Bought the Audible version for Onyx's sake. Just have to wait for it to be released.

I'll buy it for Onyx!

Have all ready preordered so poor Onyx should have his own chair soon!

Pre-ordered! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

David already on my to do list! Poor Onyx! Feel sorry for him! You could sleep on floor and switch!❤😊

I had a pup named Onyx once too 🥰

Oh my goodness. Look at that face. I love Onyx.

need a new Andy Carpenter book- when????

OK, I'm convinced. Not that your books aren't any good or anything...

I'd do anything for the dogs! I'm buying the book!

You are shameless, aren't you?! 😉 You know none of US here need a(nother) reason to buy your books, right?

Oh Onyx kick the Mrs out of his bed, one night should do it. You'll get your own bed immediately, but I am buying the book as well.

So his elbows won’t be black & blue? 🙈

what a beautiful dog!

Pre ordered. I agree with Phyllis. Switch places. Onyx is a beauty 🤗🤗🤗💖💖

Shameless! Love it!

Like you would let a dog sleep on a raggy old blanket. 😂 I'll still get your book. 😉

Share your bed with him like I do 😁

Anything for Onyx
