Take a peek inside the mind of a spirited Sheltie puppy during his early days with new owners. This new release from Dog Ear Publishing explores what a dog might think about all the experiences in his new life.

og Ear Publishing releases “Corky’s Diary… A Puppy’s Tale” by Richard J. Kneiser.

Corky, with help from his owner, 'writes' about the first 10 months at his new home at the lake and in the woods, sharing both scary and exciting experiences of his early days.

Take a journey with man’s best friend in this new book told from the perspective of the author’s Sheltie. "Corky," with help from his owner, “writes” about the first 10 months at his new home at the lake and in the woods, sharing both scary and exciting experiences of his early days "in his own words." The friendly pup settles in quickly, enjoying walks with Nana and Boppa and exploring his surroundings, while learning the rules for being a good dog.

“Corky’s Diary…” follows this energetic puppy’s story, based on anecdotes author Dick Kneiser jotted down almost daily when Corky first came to live with him and his wife. Corky notes how easy his owners were to train! For instance, right when it gets light in his room, they come to let him out and give him water, and they’re always petting him. “I think that I really like Nana and Boppa, and that they’re so nice to me. For new people, they’re just fine,” he notes.

Along with fun activities, the young pup also experiences some scarier moments, such as an early-morning encounter with raccoons, visiting the vet and coming face to face with a coyote. Animal lovers will smile at Corky’s light-hearted stories about typical puppy behavior: scaring a cat with his loudest bark, tolerating his first bath, romping in the snow for the first time, chasing geese and ducks, and many more antics as he makes new people-friends too. He also cavorts with his brother, Jake, who just visits along with his owners.

Author Dick Kneiser and his wife live on wooded lake property in Oconomowoc Lake, Wis. They found Corky, who is now 4 years old, in western Wisconsin, after researching different breeders. The retired CPA plans to write a sequel to the diary to update Corky’s "big dog" adventures.
