Because I love dogs so much (and I'm not alone on this here at BookPage), I'm featuring TWO trailers for books from our November dog book feature! I just can't help myself.
First is Love at First Bark, the follow-up to Julie Klam's best-selling memoir You Had Me at Woof (2010). "With the same humor and panache that made her last book so appealing," Klam shares tales of "dog rescue and rehab that read, at times, like adventure stories."
The book trailer from Penguin features one of these stories:

Julie Klam's You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness comes out next week, and we're highlighting it (along with three other dog-themed books) in our November issue.
If you've ever loved a dog, you'll enjoy this story about Klam's adventures in rescuing Boston terriers. (BookPage's Deanna Larson writes: "These little one-act adventures in the sacrifices and rewards of dog guardianship have humanity, occasional tragedy and sadness, and plenty of hilarity.")
Even if you're not a dog person, I think you'll get a kick out the trailer, which includes hilarious guest appearances by Susan Orlean (author of The Orchid Thief) and comedian Denis Leary:
