I assume everyone has read “Dog Eat Dog” already, so it would be helpful for my future writing to do an opinion survey. Which of these responses most accurately represents your view?
A. “Dog Eat Dog” is beyond brilliant…stunning and extraordinary.
B. Rosenfelt is simply a genius.
C. Looks, talent, charm, raw sexuality…Rosenfelt has it all.
D. I haven’t read it yet…my life is empty. ...
Loved all the Maine references since my son lives in Edgecomb...know the area well.
Funny thing, Laurie’s favorite author is my favorite author. Andy doesn’t know what he’s missing !! Loving the book.
D( but I’ve loved all the previous Andy Carpenter novels!)
Audio Book On hold… ‘only’ 8 week waiting list … sigh… I listen while I work…
I am not good about reading all books in series. Can you follow the plot without having read the previous books? Asking for a friend.
Finished it the morning after it came out...so A B & C Watched your Poisoned Pen interview....always enjoyable.
Andy Carpenter is my all time favorite character!!
Just finished it and it is wonderful!!!
A, B, C …… I finished the book in 2 days. I would have finished it in one day but work & my family got in the way.
Already left a review on Amazon Kindle! Loved it!
Love it! I will go with a b and c! Always looking forward to your books!
D. Things come slower to northwestern Canada.
Starting it tonight! Can’t wait! I am sure A B & C are true and my life will no longer be empty!
I just got mine, so D for my morning coffee. And A by lunchtime.
Just got it today,can't wait to read it.
Next book on my ever growing list…
It’s like fine wine, you don’t gulp it you savour it. That being said it’s on my bedside table waiting to be savoured.
D, but it's on its way from Poison Pen. Can't wait!
A, B and C. But I am now craving lobster rolls like crazy.
D...waiting for my turn at the library
A,B and C. Great book. Read it the first day.
D, unfortunately. It is my pile of books from the library, though.
It was excellent! Definitely a,b and c
lol of your options!Q
I just downloaded it from audible. Looking forward to it.
I am reading it slowly, want to truly enjoy, like it better than the K-Team, love the humor, when will another "Andy" be published????
Quite cool how you made it into the new book being such a famous author and all.
Yes I received my copy. We have pugs our self. And there was a incident with donuts. They were at the hotel the pugs alone and the three pugs enjyed some donuts. Wish we had video of it .
Bought it and started reading! Like it a lot! Always looking forward to a new book in your serie! You are very talented!
Thanks! Just bought it! Your dogs can eat tonight!
I’m going to B & Noble today I love your books❤️🐕🦺❤️
Joey approves of the series.
Love your Andy Carpenter novels!
Reading it now. Well, not this minute. I’m on Facebook right now, but I have started it this morning. 😁
When will this be available in a Kindle format???
Love your books!
Got it! Intend to enjoy it!
I will get it on audible!
Does it come with a dozen free donuts??
The wait is over !! My mother and I cannot wait to read it.
Just picked it up from my library!!!
Drove 65 miles to Barnes and Noble to get this book. It took them an hour and a half to find it!
Reading it now and I am so happy!
I am looking forward to reading it!
Got it yesterday afternoon and finished about 2 am
Mine arrives from Amazon tomorrow! Yippee!
Audible. Grover. The way forward
Oh no! Finished. Life now lacks all meaning.
Darn it, I already finished Dog Eat Dog and have many months to wait for the next offering. I now have a craving to visit Maine and eat lobster rolls, but I looked up the price and was a bit scared.
It was great fun--thanks so much!
Read a series by Dan Walsh recently and they were very good also. Will try to find Jeff's books. Are they on Kindle?
What a great event! I enjoy the books of all three authors in this interview, so I felt like I hit the jackpot.
It's not July without a David Rosenfelt new release!
I saw wish I could hear- I would have loved this . Read all of David s and Spencer’s book
You know how hard it was for me to save my audible credit for this!!!!!the wait is almost over!!!
I love Spencer Quinn too. I'll have to check out the Burton guy since he's in good company there.
Oh! I'm going to have to check out Jeffrey B. Burton!
Reminder is set!
Wohoo!!! And three because one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.
Was this taped for those of us who were working?
But you’re the best🌟
Thanks❗ I just placed them all on hold at my library. 💕😊
I don't like to complain, but I am simply not given the respect due me as a master artist. I look at the book jacket for "Dog Eat Dog" and I think, how can anyone not understand that I am creating serious, profound, classic literature? ...
Now, it might be hard if the pug was eating a hot dog! But eating a donut, seriously, who in their right mind doesn’t believe this book is a classic mystery? Your books are seriously entertaining and your avid readers (like me) are all that matters.
I love spreading the word that you are a serious classic author. All your mysteries are classic. 🤗
I don’t care what anybody says, I love your books!!!
You love your books and we do too. And the covers. Who says they aren't good literature. I could choke on most of the classics and love yours.
A Tale of Two Cities has a guy going to the guillotine, give me a dog with donuts any day…
Let's be honest here... Doesn't matter what YOU think about the cover of your new book... What does matter is what I think about what's inside of your new book... (And since I've read them ALL, there's a very good chance I'll enjoy this one as well). Sorry to appear MEAN, but it's just my nature...🥰🥰🥰
I tell EVERYONE that you are a "serious, profound and classic author!" Oh, and that your books are awesome 😜😜😜
Really amusing if you love dogs. Another author that is a must read is Spencer Quinn and Chet the Jet , oh who tells the story. A real hoot.
I know you and Debbie take in rescue dogs but would you ever consider taking in people? I’m thinking that I might like living in your household…oh wait, all that poop and stuff. Okay so could I at least come and visit from time to time?
I really enjoy your books. They are great as audiobooks especially. But speaking of covers, who approved putting a Boston Terrier on the cover of a book about a French Bulldog? Bark of Night.
Fabulous! I literally had to tear myself away and save the last few pages for another day. ❤️🔥
🖋Dear David, indeed, the path of an artist can be a rocky road at times! 🍨 But your fans are out here ready to devour every book you write! 🌟
My favorite author and my favorite characters Andrew Carpenter and his furry friend Tara. Long series. I recommend start with book one. I have his full series on my book shelves between The Bible and War and Peace. ❤️🐾
Pre-ordered and can hardly wait! Have a whole shelf devoted to your books. 🙂
I say... put a dog on the cover... and it is pretty certain I'll buy it
Are those real dog donut treats? give up the recipe, or the cat gets it! (don't know what he'll do with it; probably bat the piece of paper around til he tires of it.)
Your books make people happy - I can think of no higher praise!
What could be more profound than dogs and donuts ?
I am convinced that you are a seriously, creative author!!!
I can hardly wait, because... PUG!! <3
Can’t wait to get my greedy mitts on this and neither can Bella!
Beats the heck out of me as I agree with you!
Waiting for my pre-order to come to my neighborhood bookstore!
And I am going to buy it because if the pug!
I’ve written to the Nobel laureate people several times and submitted your name for the Nobel prize for Literature. So far no reply. Have to stop including the book covers.
As we celebrate our independence this weekend, we can reflect on the fact that the people of North Korea are not allowed to buy or read David Rosenfelt's American epic, "Dog Eat Dog". So let's all buy the book and stick it to Kim Jong Un. ...
Tino Martinez and I are so excited Hunter the pug is featured in your newest book!! I have read all your books and just started this one today!! 📖❤️🐾
Bought it this week. Didn’t realize I was being patriotic! Another excuse I can use!
I pre-ordered my copy today!
Great read so far! I’ll have it finished before weekend. 😁🐶
Yet they literally do eat dogs.
Definitely buy the book!
Mine is preordered!
I would not be surprised if Kim Jong Un eats dogs!!
Uh, a bit of dark humor? 👀
Copy requested from Glenolden Library!
I`ll do it
It is preordered. Can't wait!
Lol. Pre ordered!
I'm right there with you
What?! Will probably have to read the book to find out why
Pre ordered already
Can't wait, thank you!
Well, if you put it that way, okay!
THIS IS MY LIFE: When it comes to me vs. the dogs, Debbie sides with the dogs 100% of the time. We have a dog named Hunter (pictured below) who has a very weak back end and is the least housetrained dog in America. Today, as I was getting ready to leave the house, I stepped in dog shit, courtesy of Hunter. I cleaned my sneaker off and proceeded to step in another gift that Hunter left. I screamed, “I’M SICK OF THIS!” Debbie’s response? “You need to watch where you walk.” ...
Remember - your wife is always right! Enjoy Hunter while you have him. I love his “ frosty” face
Debbie is correct. 😂 Hunter is adorable.
God bless you and Debbie for what you do on behalf of Animal Kind. We go through the same thing every day. But we're thankful we can take care of them and have to cut our losses. Love your books. Watch where you walk.
Been there! I have an old girl who is afraid of going outside. We adopted her about 7 years ago and she's always been this way. She's a PITA but I adore her. 💜
You need to hug Hunter for doing his bidness. I lost a dog at 16 when his backside failed and he couldn't walk. Count your blessings.
Look at that face who could blame him! Check out Judy Morgan D.V.M page. She has so many wonderful blogs and articles about many things including weak back ends. Perhaps he could use some of her helpful recommendations. She has helped my dog in his healing in many ways. She has a whole pack herself of course of rescues along with her small farm of other animals rescued. She's a gem. I think you'd come to love her as I have. Or just tell Debbie! 🥰
My daughter, whom I haven’t seen this past year, came to visit today and asked, as she entered the house, if she should take off her shoes. My reply, “Heavens no! Not if you want to keep your feet clean!”
You really should know by now. Seriously, I was lucky to spot the poop left my elderly cat before I stepped in it this morning.
You are definitely married to the right woman. Congratulations
I had a dog that looked like Hunter. His name was Mikey and he lived to be over 18 years old. Needless to say, he had the same issue with all bodily functions. You and Debbie sound just like me, my husband and Mikey!
Having had several rescued, VERY elderly, incontinent, pugs, I hear what you say, David!! You gotta love them anyway! <3
Obviously you don't grow up on a farm. Watching where you were walking and being able to keep track of the livestock at the same time is a a survival tool that will last forever.
We have the same exact problem! I keep telling my husband “LOOK DOWN BEFORE YOU STEP!” but he keeps forgetting! We have 4 dachunds, all over 10 years old, so we have to constantly be watchful for pee and poop puddles and piles. They have free access to the backyard via a doggy door and most of the time most go outside. But, just like my husband and I (both over 70!), they all don’t always make it outside and doggy depends just haven’t worked out!
Debbie sounds like she is a wise soul.
my sisters sheperd has the same problem and he is always not quite making it off the patio to do his business. But we have to be understanding.
I find pug gifts allll the time, since I've got one older pug and one who was given up in part due to intestinal challenges. Not sure I'd know what to do with a mop-free day.
I love Hunter, and Debbie. ❤️
I agree. Before I got to the last sentence, Debbie's reply to you, I certainly wondered why you stepped in it. It's not as if you aren't aware of the problem. So look, find the object, clean it up. I'm so sorry poor Hunter is going thru that, that he's not well.
So my husband says he can relate. We have shoes by the door so the last thing we do is put on clean shoes and walk outside. We don't have a thousand dogs like you. We had 16 but over the past 2 years a lot of our seniors have crossed. We now only have 4 seniors and a semi feral younger dog. Probably getting 2 more seniors soon. So only 7 dogs total.
Awe!! I once lived with a completely incontinent cat for six months. “It’s just pee not anthrax” Soon became our whole family motto. It’s amazing how you can adjust to things when you have to
Poor Hunter! It isn’t his fault, or yours, or Debbie’s. Just life with a dog.
Debbie’s right and you just must accept that! And sending snoot kisses to Hunter!
She’s right! You’re wrong. It’s a guy thing. Especially after having kids- women always look where they’re going! Men are just hard to train!!
Two things can be true at once: you are tired of stepping in dog crap (I don’t blame you) and you need to look where you step…
You are such an amazing person. It is so frustrating when they leave you "gifts."
During Covid, I have found that wearing a mask helps me avoid the paparazzi that are always chasing after me. So with the incredible excitement surrounding the release of "Dog Eat Dog", I've decided to wear one out in public. Here's a photo of me in my new mask...if you see me on the street, please respect my privacy. ...
You’re hilarious. I hope you don’t step on poop at home today.
With a physique like that you should have no agility troubles when it comes to side-stepping Hunter’s dog poo!
You are so funny! Love all your books, too.
You are a hunk! Now, get back to writing!
looking good David - love ya and your books (:
Gee, you really changed your appearance since your last book!
Hubba Hubba Mr. Grey, umm I mean Resenfelt!
Glad I wasn’t drinking when I saw this. Too funny
So funny you make my day!
Ha, looks like we will be respecting more than your "privacy"!!
Is this the picture that will be at the back of your book?😄
You always make me smile.
You’ve been working out! I can tell😊
David you are so funny. Love your books and your sense of humor.
David, you are a hoot!! Looks like you’ve been working out!! Lol
This is what I think Andy Carpenter looks like. Lol
I totally Love You❤️🧡💛💚💙💜. Your sense of humor is just the best!
I love that full body mask. Doesn’t it get hot in the summer?
Ah, the things you have to do when you are world famous author ✍️
Book is preordered and we can’t wait! Thanks for the chuckle 😂
I would recognize you anywhere.
You got your hair cut.
Reading one of your ebooks right now, Silent Bite
Apparently people all over the country are planning to set off fireworks on July 4th to celebrate the release of "Dog Eat Dog" two days later. Please don't...it hurts vets with PTSD, it terrifies animals, and it causes many injuries. If you want to celebrate this brilliant literature, and I can see why you would, have a barbecue instead. ...
I'm in the middle of "Animal Instinct"...been a little prolific lately, haven't you?
Good advice! More Andy Carpenter is definitely something to celebrate 🎉
Tell your fans that instead of buying fireworks, buy a couple of bags of dog and cat food to take to their local animal shelter.
Wait, you are barbecuing and the name of the book is Dog Eat Dog? I hope it's Hot Dog on the menu, not the other kind!
I am looking forward to reading this book and I don't celebrate the 4th because I almost died in 2008 being a Peyton Manning fan and haven't met him yet but he came to my road here in Louisiana and told people my business. How unfair...
Totally agree..leave the fireworks to the professionals
Good advice. I’m amazed that someone was able to get this lovely pug to take and hold one very delicious frosted donut, lol. Fabulous training!
Yes, scares babies and cats too
Looks more like dog eats donut!
Terrifies our dogs!!!
Or Maybe donuts in honor of the book's cover.
Love these and of course Tara! Yes don’t take dogs to fireworks 💥
I am looking forward to this!!! Love that Andy Carpenter!!😀
So thrilled! It is FINALLY time to read your next book! Seems like I have been waiting FOREVER for its release❣️💕❤️❣️💕❤️❣️💕❤️
I am really looking forward to reading your book We have been rescuing pugs for many years and can’t wait to read about this dog and of course Tara and Sebastian and all the dogs in the foundation
I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to reading this book.
I love how you named Andy’s wife after me. 😆
Dog Eat Donut (especially Donuts from Neil’s!)
Same for Canada Day July 1
Looking forward to another great Andy Carpenter adventure!
Thanks for this post, David.
Just read DogTripping! I made the trip from CA to IL with 5 special needs dogs in a RV a few years ago. We did it in 2 1/2 days, spent one night and turned around to come home. You and Debbie amaze me. I live in the OC and have an animal permit. We have 15 dogs right now, many of them seniors, in our 1200 square foot home. Only two large though! We also have 11 cats (they live in a two bedroom house with a 16 ft catio) on our property, four birds (including two African Grey parrots ), 2 rabbits and a snake. Never a dull moment!
Happy Mother's day to one fantastic doggy mom. Looks like quite a discussion.
I love your books! A great day for me is when I find a new one at the bookstore. Rereading one right now. Happy Mother’s Day to me!
Just got K Team and two lab puppies, I am ready to sit back, read and cuddle!
Every day is about them. Silly pups.
Just finish Dogtripping for the second time and you two make every day about them 😀. Loved hearing about each dog on the journey and your love and commitment to them 🥰
It's always Doggie Day. Sometimes moms need a day.
....that’s what kids tend to do...👍❤️👍
Love your dogs and stories you make my day❤️
Love this! You could be right!😍
I ran across this picture yesterday. This is when you picked up the dog Frankie in Arizona.
Absolutely love seeing pics and hearing about your many beasts!
Absolutely Annie them and Debbie.
Dog love is the best!
Awww, they’re beautiful!
In our house, it's ALWAYS all about them!
Huh? So that’s what my dogs were doing earlier today 🤦♀️
Love this . Hey I'm on book no.2 the new one of the K team. Great reading.
They have the "look" of trouble!
It's always about them
Oh you have some like that, also?
Just finished listening to dog tags again love it now on to the next
I just love your posts!!
Isn't every day about them ?
Dog Eat Dog, the latest in the Andy Carpenter series, is available July 6, 2021. You can pre-order below:
Barnes & Noble: bit.ly/3n4GxOS
Apple: apple.co/3sARwAw ...
I am literally down to my last book of yours. How am i going to wait until July?
In the process of reading Animal Instinct. I love your books.
Thanks for letting us know. I always look forward to a new book in the Andy Carpenter series😊
Good news! I'm reading "Deck the Hounds" now.
I can't wait to read this latest in the Andy Carpenter series because: (1.) I love David Rosenfelt's novels and have read every novel he has written, as well as his 2 nonfiction books, and (2.) After being the highest bidder in last November's PALS FOR LIFE auction in PA, I won a "David Rosenfelt Package" which includes my name being used as a character in DOG EAT DOG!!
Already have it on order !!
.... looking forward to it..!!👍❤️👍
Can't wait to get the book and see my friends name it!
Will it be available in talking book format ?
Can’t wait... love Andy Carpenter
Love your books. Went to school in Paterson, New Jersey
I'll wait til it comes out. I can't resist the audiobooks! Love Grover Gardener!
Another one! Cathy
Just finished Animal instinct. Very good book!
Hurray!!!! I’m on it! So looking forward to the Andy case. 📚
I just read the 2 “K Team” books. I think they may be your best ever! I couldn’t put them down. So happy there is an Andy Carpenter on the horizon.
I LOVE how if something isn't quite right, your own fault, or theirs...they just tell you to bring the item to your favorite animal shelter, and they'll ship you a new, correct item!❤
I randomly got three paintings of some of my dogs. Great company!
Yes they do. When one of my dog passes, they send flowers and a nice card. Since I do hospice and senior dog rescue, they do it frequently
They do! They were so kind and empathetic when our beloved cat Sabre passed. After helping me with a return of unused medicine, they sent us a sympathy card signed by several employees. I would recommend them to EVERYONE!!!
I agree! I get auto deliveries every other week for my 15 dogs and 11 cats!
A friend had her golden pass away. She had to call them and cancel the food she had ordered. They sent her flowers in sympathy for her beloved dog passing. ❤️
Yes they do! My brother’s cat crossed to the bridge a couple months ago. They notified Chewy to stop shipments. Chewy sent them a sympathy bouquet of flowers ❤️❤️
They sent me a painting of my puppy on his 1st birthday. Love them!
Agreed! I get all my pet products from them because of their decent prices and excellent customer service!
I feel the very same way David. Nothing but great experiences. The things I've bought have always been Top Notch. And not over-the-top expensive. I even contacted the company to let them know I felt so. So I hope you have to.
CHEWY is the BEST. Notice no on who has commented has said anything but positives!
I feel bad for our locally owned pet stores, but chewy is just incredible.
A+++ When my daughter's dog passed she contacted them to see about returning an unopened case of expensive prescription food. They told her to donate the unused food to a shelter or rescue and gave her full refund for both the unopened case and a case that was about half used.
Agreed! That were out of our normal treats during the pandemic. We tried a different brand dogs wouldn’t touch them...called them they refunded the money and told me to bring treats to local rescue. Great people.
I agree. We are older and with pandemic, have been staying home. Order all our pet food through Chewy. We have a young woman FedEx delivery person and she gets the heavy boxes up to our porch with seemingly little effort. Appreciate both companies.
They do. I’ve been impressed several times. And, I’ve had several friends that have said the same.
Absolutely. I spent an hour on the phone with a customer service employee helping me try to find food that didn't contain chicken for my cat that is severely allergic to it. And they are always the first to respond to disasters too by donating food where needed. They send birthday cards to pets (if they have the birthdate on file). Just a wonderful, personal company to deal with.
My FedEx driver rings the doorbell and puts my box in the garage. I always order a 30 pound bag of dog food and sometimes a case of cans.
I agree that Chewy does that well but please don’t forget about your locally owned independent pet food shops.
Agreed!!!! And when my fur baby passed they sent me flowers they are the best!
Yes I totally agree I do order from them . I ordered your books 1 and 2 the new one from my book store. Much love and health.
I agree. A few years ago I called in an order. The person I spoke with asked me how my dog Ralph was. I explained Ralph had passed away at 17.5 yo a few months ago. They said they were so sorry. A few days later we received a huge fresh flower arrangement from Chewy with their condolences. Could not believe it. It touched us greatly.
A agree!! I bought something I couldn’t use and instead of sending back they said to donate to local shelter and they would STILL refund me! ❤️
Agree and one of the things I love is when I ordered the wrong size coat for my dog they just had me donate it to my local rescue or ASPCA
Absolutely I’ve lost my dogs and called to return full bags of food, they tell me to donate food and send sympathy flowers. They’re awesome!
