Rory Freedman, the co-author of the New York Times mega-seller Skinny Bitch, returns with an unapologetically sappy “ode” to how animals can enrich our lives, as well as a no-holds-barred treatise on how we can better protect them. With the sassy humor and no-nonsense tone of Skinny Bitch, Rory writes of how her three dogs have completely transformed her life for the better. But she also shines the light on some unsavory truths about what happens to many dogs, cats, and other domestic animals in America and throughout the world. From the perils of puppy mills and kill shelters to the pain of declawing and tail-docking, pets face many dangers at the hands of humans. Rory inspires her readers to get their head out of their &*^% and shows them how they can help. Just as Skinny Bitch inspired millions to change their diets to improve the lives of factory farm animals, Beg will galvanize readers to return some of the love, trust, and loyalty they receive from their pets, and to change their choices and actions to improve the lives of ALL domestic animals.
