Book for Dog Lovers: The Dog Lady of Mexico

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending a LOT of time reading recently. I’ve always been a book-lover and avid reader, but since the coronavirus shutdown, I’ve been devouring just about every book I can get my hands on.

Most recently, I’ve been reading The Dog Lady of Mexico by Alison Sawyer Current. It’s a fictional novel, based on a true story. It’s heartwarming, inspiring, and sure to tug at the heartstrings of dog lovers and animal rescue supporters everywhere.

From the book’s back cover

Rose’s lifelong dream was to move to a tropical paradise and continue her work as an artist. She imagined waking up by the ocean, sipping her coffee on the beach and heading to her pottery studio. There she would spin sun-drenched inspirations while her husband would share his passion for food at his ocean side cantina. It was all coming together for Rose when a good deed changed her life forever. Little did she know that this small favor would gradually become an obsession that she could not ignore. Take a trip with The Dog Lady of Mexico – a fictional novel based on a true story. Follow this heart-wrenching journey of love, loss and survival while building an animal rescue on the tiny island of Isla Mujeres in Mexico.

Part of the book sale proceeds will go to support Isla Animals, the rescue organization Alison founded in Mexico in 2004.

The Dog Lady of Mexico is available in paperback here, and is also currently FREE to read with Kindle Unlimited.

If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up here for 2 months FREE of Kindle Unlimited ($19.98 value). You get unlimited access to over 1 million books, magazines, audio narration, and more. And you don’t need a Kindle device…read on any phone, tablet, PC or device using the Kindle app.

Must Watch: How to Stream ‘Just Mercy’ for Free This Month

To help everyone learn and understand more about the systemic racism that plagues our country and legal system, Warner Bros. has made Just Mercy free to rent on digital streaming platforms this month. The film is rated PG-13, and it’s an important movie for families to watch together and discuss.

Just Mercy was adapted from the book of the same name and the film follows the story of civil-rights attorney Bryan Stevenson (played by Michael B. Jordan) as he fights to overturn the wrongful murder conviction of Walter McMillian (Jamie Foxx) and free him from death row.

Bryan Stevenson is a Harvard graduate who founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to criminal justice reform, racial justice, and public education.

Walter McMillan was released from death row in 1993 after the Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that he had been wrongfully convicted in 1988. He died in 2013.

$10 OFF Unscented or Lavender Earth Rated Dog Wipes for Paws, Body and Butt

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Last week I wrote about the best tools and tips for home dog grooming, which is the only option for most of us during the pandemic shutdown.

Today I spotted a deal on these Earth Rated Plant-Based, Hypoallergenic, and Compostable Wipes for Dogs.

They are $10 OFF a pack of 400 dog wipes in your choice of Unscented or Lavender-Scented.

I’m a big fan of dog wipes because Daisy doesn’t like baths and I usually end up taking her in the shower with me to get the job done. These make it SO much easier to keep her clean.

Keep some wipes by the front door to clean your dog’s paws after a walk, to wipe that butt when needed, and to clean their body if they stop, drop and roll while out for a stroll. With this mult-pack, you can also keep some in the car.

Earth Rated is our favorite brand for poop bags (especially their lavender-scented poop bags) and these dog wipes meet their same quality and eco-friendly standards. They are made with all natural shea butter, aloe, and chamomile to keep fur soft and luxurious while smelling fresh. Fit for the most sensitive puppies, and even cats. Free of parabens, sulfates, and alcohol so they’re mild enough for daily use.

Use this link to snag a 4 pack in your choice of scented or unscented and save $10 (25% OFF).
