I see a lot of dogs in my typical workday. Some sick, some healthy, many somewhere in between. I sometimes remember some details about them after their appointments, but there are a few dogs that are forever vividly etched in my memory. This is the case with Lucy, a 4 month old black Labrador mix adopted from a local rescue group. Lucy was my 9:15 appointment on an early fall Saturday morning, over eight years ago. It was a beautiful day, and I was looking forward to meeting a friend for lunch and then spending some time with my own dogs. Lucy had been with her owners a few weeks, and was a typical happy, active puppy. She had received her first vaccination (DAPP) four weeks ago while with her foster family. My physical examination revealed no abnormalities - she appeared completely healthy. So I administered her second DAPP vaccination, which happened to be exactly the same brand and formulation she had received a month ago. Before I could withdraw the needle from her skin, it was apparent that something was very wrong. Lucy stiffened, and then collapsed. I immediately began treatment for this vaccine reaction, and she responded initially. She had her first seizure half an hour later. Over the course of the morning, her seizures progressed, and she stopped responding to the intravenous fluids and drugs we administered. She died at 2:16 PM, just over five hours after she bounced into the hospital, a bright, happy puppy with a tennis ball in her mouth. My purpose in writing this book is to provide a straightforward explanation of what a vaccine is, how it works, and which are (and are not) needed for most dogs. This information is what I want to share with every new puppy owner at his or her first office call (and now that it is in book form I can!). As such, it is intended to be an understandable yet not "dumbed down" explanation of this important medical procedure for every concerned dog owner. You will notice scientific references sprinkled throughout the chapters, as well as in the References section. More technical information is available at the book website, www.VaccinesExplained.com for those interested. My basic vaccination schedule and "Best Practices" for vaccinating are also included. I sincerely hope this guide aids you in making informed vaccine choices for your dog.

Told with the same blend of humour and poignancy that made Marley & Me beloved by millions around the world, this is John Grogan's story of a boy and his family and of life long before that dog. Finding your place in the world can be the longest trip home... In his international bestseller Marley & Me, John Grogan perfectly described the love of a family for their wondrously neurotic dog. He made us laugh and cry, and showed how love can come in many forms. Now, in The Longest Trip Home, John writes with the same honesty, openness and humour about the relationship between a boy and his parents. As a 'bad' boy in a good family, John didn't always live up to his parents' expectations, but as a man he came to understand the unconditional love they gave him. In this book, John describes his painful, funny and poignant journey into adulthood. A fateful call from his father would lead him on the next leg of his journey - the trip back home. As warm and moving as Marley & Me, The Longest Trip Home is a lyrical tribute to the power of family and love. PRAISE for The Longest Trip Home: 'Grogan follows up Marley & Me with a hilarious and touching memoir of his childhood in suburban Detroit.' Publishers Weekly (starred) 'If you enjoyed Marley & Me, you'll be equally amused and moved by this story' The Weekend Australian 'The strength of this book is the poignancy of the father-son relationship.' Sun-Herald 'moving and written with humour' The Age 'sentences that are lyrical and observations that are wry and witty' The Washington Post 'It's easy to think of John Grogan as your new best friend after reading this memoir.' Herald Sun
