This bigger-than-life Chihuahua has experienced the belt-over blues, the heartache of upper thigh spread, and the retirement of even her largest doggie sweaters.

When Jason moves in with Bev, it's supposed to be temporary. But then Daisy the Chihuahua comes to stay. Just two-and-a-half pounds when they adopt her, Daisy is a charmer. And soon, an eater. Hot on her heels comes Elvis the pug, and then, of course, their puppies! Instead of losing her baby weight, after giving birth to four puppies, Daisy gets even chubbier and soon outgrows even her fattest fat sweaters. Bev and Jason decide it's time for everyone, including the two of them, to pull together, lead a healthier life-style--and in the process become a family (albeit an unconventional one). Please Don't Feed the Daisy is the wickedly funny, remarkably useful story of their journey toward becoming that family, and a fit one to boot. Packed with yummy, fun, diet- and earth-friendly recipes for both dogs and people, as well as training tips and the Happily Ever After Maintenance Plan, this is a heartwarming and healthy tale for dog- (and food-) lovers everywhere.

Fannie Flagg takes us on a journey to a South that only Southerners know, to a time when 'Blue Velvet' was played at the Senior Prom, and into the life of Daisy Fay Harper, a sassy, truth-telling heroine who just can't stay out of trouble. What's more she tells us everything - from what (or who) made her Daddy and Momma split up to what is really stashed in the freezer of the family's malt shop. Daisy Fay is coming of age in the Gulf Coast's Shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South, but a dandy place to meet the locals like hard-drinking Jimmy Snow, former debutante Mrs Dot and Daisy's own Daddy. They're all part of the fun that takes us down home, back to the '50s, and into the best story ever written east of Texas...

Currently in development with CBS Films, this is the emotional and uplifting memoir of a woman who became a volunteer trainer for Daisy, a sweet yellow Lab puppy, and her unique relationship with the inmate who is Daisy’s partner in the Prison PUP program. When Sharron Luttrell, a journalist still deeply mourning the loss of her family dog, found out about a weekend puppy raiser program for a service dog organization, she knew it was just she needed to help her move on. It seemed ideal; pick up a puppy on Friday, return it on Sunday night, get a new puppy each year. No strings attached. Well, it turns out that there were strings – and they tugged at her every Sunday evening when she had to return “her dog” to prison. This memoir chronicles Sharron’s year co-parenting Daisy, a sweet lab puppy, with Keith, a convicted felon serving a decades-long sentence. As Sharron and Keith develop a rapport based on their brief weekend handovers (an exchange she describes as "divorced parents handing over the kids"), she begins to speculate about what the quiet, gentle Keith could have done to wind up in medium-security prison. When, through an accident of fate, Sharron finally discovers the crime Keith actually committed, she is shaken to her foundation. How can she continue to work with him, knowing what she does? But can she dismiss her personal experience with him, which has been nothing but kind? Ultimately, she looks to Daisy to pull her through—she must “think like a dog” and react in the present, not the past. Mindful of how much Daisy has taught her in a short time, Sharron can also see how much this special dog has helped Keith learn empathy, remorse, and to face the consequences of his actions. As the two of them work tirelessly to ensure that Daisy passes her final test and fulfills her destiny by becoming a service dog, Sharron tests the limits of her own strength, compassion, and capacity for love.
