The series of videos has been viewed well over fifty million times on social media, giving comfort to locked-down dog owners and spectacle-deprived sports fans all over the world.

Life and Adventures with Two Very Good Dogs, Andrew tells the truth about his two canine celebrities. 

This is the full story of their rise to stardom, revealing more about how all three of them find peace and happiness away from the hectic world of the media, most often in the mountains. 
And also just how much Olive dislikes the cat next door. 

Above all, though, this is a book about the love we all have for our dogs, the companionship and pure joy we get from sharing our lives with them. And the love and affection they give back to us, which is in no way related to us providing a near-constant supply of food and walks. 

Beautifully written, touching and laugh-out-loud funny, Olive, Mabel & Me is a treat for dog dads everywhere.

Lost Companions (Reflections on the Death of Pets) is a heartfelt exploration of human grief after the loss of a pet.

Our society is still learning how to dignify the relationship between a pet and their human with proper mourning rituals. We have only recently allowed the conversation of how to grieve for our non-human family members to come front and centre.

In examining the special bond between pets and their people, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson validates the grief that we feel when a special pet dies. Lost Companions is full of poignant stories about dogs, cats, horses, birds, wombats and other animals that beautifully illustrate the strong bond humans form with them.

A heartfelt exploration of human grief after the loss of a pet, Lost Companions is a thought-provoking book on pet loss. This is a personal approach, allowing readers to explore their own responses, suggesting ways through and out of grief, as well as meaningful ways to memorialise our best friends.

RRP: $29.99 from all good book stores and online at
