Happy Mother's day to one fantastic doggy mom. Looks like quite a discussion.
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!
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!
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 this! You could be right!😍
Love your dogs and stories you make my day❤️
Absolutely love seeing pics and hearing about your many beasts!
You have taught me so much through your book. Just had to look you up. Happy Mother’s Day to Debbie💕
Dog love is the best!
Awww, they’re beautiful!
Every day is about them. Silly pups.
In our house, it's ALWAYS all about them!
Looks like quite a discussion.
Huh? So that’s what my dogs were doing earlier today 🤦♀️
It's always about them
Love this . Hey I'm on book no.2 the new one of the K team. Great reading.
They have the "look" of trouble!
Love it !!!!!💗
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?
Thanks for letting us know. I always look forward to a new book in the Andy Carpenter series😊
In the process of reading Animal Instinct. I love your books.
.... looking forward to it..!!👍❤️👍
Good news! I'm reading "Deck the Hounds" now.
Already have it on order !!
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!!
Will it be available in talking book format ?
Love your books. Went to school in Paterson, New Jersey
Can’t wait... love Andy Carpenter
I'll wait til it comes out. I can't resist the audiobooks! Love Grover Gardener!
Hurray!!!! I’m on it! So looking forward to the Andy case. 📚
Can't wait to get the book and see my friends name it!
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.
Just finished Animal instinct. Very good book!
Yippee!! Pugs Rule!! <3
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!
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. ❤️
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!
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
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 ❤️❤️
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.
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!
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.
CHEWY is the BEST. Notice no on who has commented has said anything but positives!
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 feel bad for our locally owned pet stores, but chewy is just incredible.
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.
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.
They do. I’ve been impressed several times. And, I’ve had several friends that have said the same.
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.
Agreed!!!! And when my fur baby passed they sent me flowers they are the best!
I agree that Chewy does that well but please don’t forget about your locally owned independent pet food shops.
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.
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! ❤️
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.
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!
It's only been out a couple of days, but if you've already read and liked 'Animal Instinct', you should post your review everywhere. If you didn't like it, you are pathetic and no one cares what you think. ...
Read it, wrote a five star review, sent a nominating text to Nobel Literary Committee, waiting for next Andy book to hit my Kindle. Maybe only three of those things are true. I'm old and forgetful.
How could it not be good?! I've loved all the previous books.
Finished it yesterday, to my dismay. Will have to read it again and listen to it when the Audible version is released. Only, where does the French Bulldog in pawcuffs on the cover come in?
Your writing talent gets better and better with each new novel you write, David! I finished reading ANIMAL INSTINCT in under 7 hours, and now I'm "drooling and panting" for DOG EAT DOG to come out in July!!
Love it! Reading slowly to make it last longer! Getting to the point where they're about to crack the case. Have to tell you: Enjoyed your incredibly unique reference to the Rosenbergs on page 213. Growing up during the Cold War, I've always been intrigued by that case and the regrettably sad outcome. So your inventive thought of what they could be doing now, had they been allowed to live into old age, really made my day. Shuffleboard: Only you could come up with that! Thanks!
Loved it! I listened to the audio book, and was entertained by both the writer and the reader. So pleased that Tara was at least peripherally present. One could certainly enjoy this book as a stand-alone story, but is better appreciated, I think, when you’ve read the Andy Carpenter books, as well as the previous K Team book(s?). (Love Simon!)
I finished it last night. Another great read full of twists and turns with a healthy dose of humor tossed in! Really enjoy reading these.
Who wouldn’t like it? If there’s anyone who doesn’t like it - they’re dead to me.
A good read, a good romp, and I love the Acknowledgments.
I loved it and will post a review!
Reading it now and enjoying!
Thoroughly enjoyed it as I do all of your books. They end too quickly and leave me wanting more.
I read it and love it- my favorite of the K Team books so far! Waiting impatiently for more Andy Carpenter!!! Hint, hint!!
Just finished...another great book. And thank you for mentioning Sebastian, he is my spirit animal.
Halfway through and I love it.
On chapter 13, highly impressed so far. 😂🤣😆. Seriously, so glad the wait is over!
Waiting for my audiobook
Wonderful book despite the appalling omission of Tara's basset hound brother
mine will be here this weekend so can't wait to read it!
You always make me laugh!
Not like it?---PSHAW--Impossible!
Waiting for the book at my library. I'm #49 of 55 active requests.
Finished book yesterday......great book and be sure you read the acknowledgement section at the end.
I’m positive that I’ll love it. Can’t wait!!
I’ve read the first chapter so far and I love it 😂
When we woke up this morning, Debbie said to me, "On this, the publication day of 'Animal Instinct', I want to thank you for providing America with such wonderful literature." It's possible those were not her exact words. ...
Perhaps she said something like, “Thank you for providing me with so many very large dogs to warm my bed so that there is no room for you. Then your Animal Instinct, learned from the dogs, has you getting up to make me coffee.” In your sleepless haze you heard something similar.
We love you all and your fur animals so very much. Oh, and of course, we love your books!
As long as the dogs did not laugh too loudly Congratulations my prepublication purchase should arrive soon.
Andy Carpenter FOREVER!!!! ❤️❤️. One of my most favorite profound literary quotes is taken from Marcus Clark “nyuuuh”. 🤣🤣❤️❤️
A grateful Nation extends its heartfelt thanks for your valiant attempts to raise its spirits during this time of trial and trauma! Now, that Ken Burns has done Twain and Hemingway, he should turn his attentions to you!
I think her first words were probably, “ Could you go feed the first 25 dogs? I’ll do the rest.”
I just got the book from Amazon. That's my evening - start reading. I can't wait! You need to write more of them throughout the year, though, David, so I can keep on reading them.
I respect you as an amazing author. I respect you more for saving dogs.
Reading it now. Very good. And funny as usual.
Or she said you need to take out the garbage!
Love your books! All of them. Love your love for dogs.
...It’s probable these were not her exact words!
I was notified at midnight that my book was in my library!🤍🐶🤎
Love love love Andy Carpenter stories
I love love love your books. They are fun and enjoyable to read. I always keep then and share with my friends. Keep on telling great stories!!!!!😊
Anticipated, delightful, heartwarming, interesting & gripping, for sure! Debbie is partial, ya think?
I was thrilled to see it. I had given up hope.
All I’ve been reading is serious novels I need some humor ! Looking forward to reading about Andy and friends
Finally delivered at 5:45 pm eastern time!
Could she have actually said ‘hey Bub, where’s my coffee?’!
It should be her words, we all love your work!! <3
Am waiting impatiently for the delivery of the new book today!
I received ANIMAL INSTINCT in the mail yesterday, 4/6/21, and less than 24 hours after receiving it I am already more than halfway through reading it. Kudos to you, David, on another success with this second of the K Team novels! I eagerly await the publication of DOG EAT DOG in July, too!
Can’t wait to read it!❤️
I am sure that is exactly what she said...I know I would have.
Old Willy isn’t a patch on you.
Will this be coming out in paperback in the future?
Got my reading glasses on.
Waiting for the bookstore to call and tell me to come and pick up my book!
Hopefully be getting a copy soon.
I’ll be watching for the Amazon Truck!!!
I can’t wait to open the Amazon box and get my hands on it first! Perk of the gig.
Listening now! Love it!
Waiting on my preordered copy. Cant wait.
Cathy Zosa Ricci 🤪
Happy Pub Day, David!
For my millions of dedicated fans, today is going to feel endless, waiting impatiently for the release of “Animal Instinct” tomorrow. One great way to pass the time is to buy a bunch of additional copies, starting…now. ...
Does it cause you pain to know that I get my books from the library?
Just got my copy. (Amazon Is faster than B&N). I’m sure it is an editing error that my acknowledgement isn’t in the copy I got!
I'm making my way through this series
Just started this book today almost halfway through. Another great book. Thank you.
I believe you mean trillions of dedicated fans.
Good luck - you won’t need it though
My copy has been shipped! Yippee!
What's the chance of getting an autographed copy?
Just got my copy
Just bought and started reading 🤗
I don't want to create a mob scene and chaos at your local bookstore, but I should point out that there are only 482,138 seconds left until the release of "Animal Instinct". And that was true when I first started typing this...it's even closer now. Time to get your spot in line, people... ...
Just got thru binge reading 4 Andy carpenter books, cannot wait for this new one!
Binge-listened to all the Andy Carpenter books (downloaded from library), having discovered them a couple weeks ago! Just started listening to the first K team book. Obviously I am smitten! Now some of my relatives are reading them and “can’t put them down”.
Will there be dogs there? My copy is pre-ordered, but if dogs are involved I’m there! ❤️
My book store owner will order it. Love your books
I always pre- order anything you write! At this point however, I am going the book store along with the mob just to get out. 🐶 🐕
Preordered several weeks ago. Didn't want to fight the crowds.😉
Well... I hate to miss a mob scene but I've already pre-ordered it.
Spot in line for weeks!♥️
Preordered here, too! 😃
Just ordered as a birthday present for myself. 💕
Pre-ordered on Kindle !! 🙂 🐕
Getting mine on Kindle!
Preordered! Have been waiting forever!!!!!!
Received my copy yesterday. Almost done already. Great read!
I’m already @ the B & N waiting!
I preordered my copy.
Love your books and your doggies!🐾🐶
Pre-ordered. Can't risk it!!
Looking forward to reading it!
Preordered and ready to listen! 🎉
My copy is ordered awaiting delivery, too!
Waiting to devour it! Greetings from Melbourne, Australia. Woof.
Because of Covid, I won’t be doing an in-person tour for ‘Animal Instinct’. It’s a shame, because the economy of many cities depends on my appearances. Here’s an example of a city that was thriving two years ago when I visited, but has fallen apart without me being there. Hang on, America...I'll be back. ...
Too funny🤪. As long as the pups are taken care of the rest will fall into place. Stay well❤️
We'll be impatiently waiting!! For your appearances, AND for Animal Instinct!
Oh darn. Would love to see you speak in person in Cleveland area again. Maybe with the next book release. 🤞
I can't wait till covid gets tired and just go away, so we could see you again!!!!!
We are all suffering as a result of your absence.
You’ve never been here. I’m afraid we’re headed that direction.
You are one of a kind! No wonder I like your books 🐶🦮🐾🐾
I just love your witty sense of humor!!
Hmm I kind of think it would take more than an appearance--despite it being you of course 😉😚
Maybe write a story about it and bring about a revival!
I would love to see you on tour!
In the words of the famous Marcus Clarke - uuuggghhh!
This is so hard on all of us...not sure I can go on....
Can you give me hints on how to read slower so your books last longer? Either that or you need to write faster!
I’d love it if you’d do a book signing somewhere in SW Connecticut after the pandemic. They’d love you here and they have lots of disposable income.
Your a scream.😂
You are one funny guy😁
Dang it, I was going to mosey on up to that saloon...
You’re such a hoot. Love your books and what you do for dogs!
I’m counting down the days!
I am wondering how you fit all the dogs in the car to go to book signings. Surely everybody wants their signatures too.
Say it isn't so!!!! 🤣
We miss you🙁
Rough morning...I had to explain to these hungry faces that the only way there will be enough kibble for everyone is if "Animal Instinct" hits the best-seller list. So their fate is in your hands. ...
Can’t let those sweet creatures go hungry! Must buy the book!
Poor skinny things. Maybe you could get a second job driving for Uber.
Never bought 12 copies (my count of your doggies)of an author's book before, but I sure want these beauties fed. Love you, love your fur babies and love your books.
The mastiff looks especially upset with this news. She/he probably thinks you’re going to have to say that four letter word—DIET—if enough books aren’t sold!
I'd say you don't REALLY want to withhold food from that bunch. That would be 2000 pounds of fury.
Those pups look well fed and cared for. I'm sure the pups would eat before you.🤣
I don’t know how you do this with so many big guys! I rescue and have a lot, but only two big ones. I can barely get around the kitchen in the morning when it’s breakfast time!
Best Smeller List ... is that the next book??? Here in Surprise, Arizona Pepper wants to know ...
I doubt there will be a problem. LOL Rest easy guys, you'll have as much kibble as you'd like.
Our boy sympathises with your flock... Here he is - tiny, skinny and overlooked - and he doesn’t even get a measly piece of pasta 😳😬😂
I only have 2. If I told them a story like that they would eat ME for dinner.
Your Mastiff doesn’t look happy about the announcement. The rest of the group better let him in on the secret that Dad is a best selling author 😉
They just absolutely make you smile!!! Tell them I will listen to the books as fast as I can. I can send a bag of Dog Cow if that helps.
You & James Patterson have the same philosophy! lol I saw an ad, one year in Florida( I haven't seen book ads on TV in Canada)...He was bringing a new Alex Cross book out, at Christmas....if we didn't buy/ like it, he'd have to kill Alex Cross! 🤣😂
My pups strongly suggested I buy less cat food to cover the cost of your new book.
I’ll buy the hardback, audible, kindle, and paperback versions. Please feed them. 😂
Pre ordered mine do they can eat
Love your wit! But seriously, please tell me you don't feed your pack kibble. If you do, start following Judy Morgan D.V.M. She'll set you straight on how to keep your pups healthy and living the long lives we used to enjoy with them 50 - 60 years ago.
Preordered! Kibble is on its way gang!!
Those faces! I just have 2 dogs and a cat. It is nothing compared to what you wake up to! Poop scooping must be your hobby also!
I'm a pet sitter, and had this many in one house this morning. They did Not look this calm before breakfast! Great job on the books, And the pups!
I cannot in good conscious let these pups go hungry. I'll happily buy your book to save them!
Who can say no to those faces...five copies for me.
It looks like the guy in the background is wearing a fur coat!
I did my part and ordered a few weeks ago. That should buy a bowl if kibble for one of them.
TBT – This is me two years ago, taking time out from a book tour to relax by riding the waves. I do my best thinking on my surfboard…and the reason I’m posting this now is because it was on that day that I thought of the idea for “Animal Instinct”, which comes out on April 6th. Ah, good memories. ...
Looking like that and loving dogs (goldens). Hubba hubba. Lol
HaHa David. The pic on your book covers says different! Nice try, though.
HA! Your great imagination is what makes your books a pleasure to read.
Apr 6th . . . the day I get my second shot and celebrate with my boo, Andy Carpenter!
Your wife will be sad she missed out on you when you were younger. Two years ago.
Yes, that would be a good memory 🤩 Plus, no dogs
I never knew what you looked like. This is great information.
You are so funny! Looking forward to new book to read and add to my collection! Thank you for your wonderful books!
Thanks for starting my day with a laugh!
My how you’ve aged in two years. You’re working too hard. You have to get your wife to help out with the daily chores more.
So glad you posted your picture that will really bring the girls to your next book signing
Wow! I'm sure that feeding 25-30 goldens keeps you looking so good.😉
You are funny. I saw you two years ago!
I didn't recognize you without several dogs around you.
Pre-ordered (the book, not the 🏄♂️!)
You do have an outstanding imagination! Keep dreaming.
This is my picture from 2 years ago, LOL!
Looking a tad paunchy there David.
Absolutely ADORE your humor. I wish you could write faster! Miss so very much having your books to look forward to. Happy a new one is coming very soon!💖👍🎊🎉🥰
Reading your post brought the following Disney song, for some reason, to mind. 🎼 "When you wish upon a star 🌟 🎵🎶
Yeah! Right! We have to remember you are an accomplished writer of fiction! 😂
There's no dog in this picture.
Exactly the way I pictured you!
Looking good must be all that dog walking🐶🐶🦊🦊
Are you familiar with the term: Like a Christmas turkey is dressing - 😉
I haven’t done an acknowledgment page in my books for a long time. Basically that is because I live in the world of the famous, and when I mention my celebrated friends, bitter people accuse me of being a name-dropper. Well, I’m here to tell you that I am not a name dropper, and Lebron and Barack would be the first to tell you that.
In any event, that all ends now, with "Animal Instinct". I have received tremendous emotional support from many people as I have climbed to the peak of the literary world, and they deserve mention, whether the jealous among us like it or not. So a sincere thank you to:

You did something similar to this in one of your early books and I laughed so hard I had to email you. Was the first time I ever emailed an author, and you responded personally! I was so thrilled. You still make me laugh out loud with every book. Keep up the Pulitzer-level work!
Yes just thinking the same thing ... WHERE’S MY NAME??
Add my name to your list next time, I love your books and crazy sense of humor❤️
I can't believe you listed so many second tier celebrities in the same list with Debbie Myers. That would be like listing hacks like Tom Clancy, John Grisham, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King in a list of famous authors with the greatest author of all, David Rosenfelt.
I remember the the earlier one you did, hilarious! You always make me laugh. How do your wife & pups put up with you all day? You do a wonderful job of keeping me sane! Thank you!🤣
You are so funny. I am looking forward to reading your new book.
I was crying by the time I got to the end of the list. If memory serves, you did this at the end of another novel which went on for pages.
Andrea & Marilyn I would always read the acknowledgements in his books because they were so funny!
No list is complete without Betty White!
Great list. Thanks for all the laughs. Listening to Silent bite.
I recently found, Fade to Black, and enjoyed it tremendously. I must catch up on your other-than Andy Carpenter thrillers! I have read every available one, so far. Here's to you for the NJ nostalgia, too! (clink).
Too funny. The 1st time I contacted you was because of one of your early acknowledgments.
Dedicate it to me - I’m a nobody who happens to love your work ❤️
Are you absolutely certain you didn't leave anyone out?
Disappointed to be left out... Julie Merritt and Andrews...
Thank goodness Eli Manning is on the list since you didn't include me !!!!! 😄 Love your books. I pre-order everytime. I'm a Jersey girl (living in Connecticut for the past 6 years) and love that your books take place in areas I can picture. Thanks for your writing, humor and love of dogs ❤❤❤

So disappointed not to see my name on the list.
Add Barbara Thurgood your biggest fan and supporter.
Can't wait to read this. Thanks
Can’t wait to read your most recent book I’ve read everything you wrote I love your books I love dogs
You certainly have a lot of friends, David! And here I thought you only had dog friends! 😝
I just got the 1st K Team book yesterday. Anxious to get started on it. Have to clean the horse barn first LOL.
You're a Hoot! And the list goes on...
