Taking your dog to a dog park is a great way to exercise and socialize your canine companion. Dog parks offer fresh air, open space, and freedom-a chance for your dog to be a dog. But not all dogs enjoy the experience and not all dog parks are safe for your dog. Visiting the Dog Park gives you detailed information so you can decide if your dog is ready for a dog park outing, whether the design of the park makes for safe play, and teaches you simple things you can do to prepare for a great dog park experience.

Raymond Chandler meets David Sedaris—the first in a dynamite new cozy series that's "a lot of fun, full of unexpected depths and twists." —Josh Bazell, bestselling author of Beat the Reaper Amy Carter is missing. And there's no one less capable of finding her than Max Bravo. Max Bravo is a mid-rung opera singer with a diva's towering ego. And he doesn't do favors. Not until the day he visits a troubled friend in Berkeley and offers to walk her dog. Max quickly discovers the local dog park. It's an odd, private little world—a preserve for neighborhood crackpots and lay-abouts, and, incidentally, their dogs. But, the park regulars are friendly. Clubby. They even serve beer. Before long, Max can't stay away. When one of the regulars disappears, Max's interest in the dog park turns to obsession. Amy Carter – beautiful, adored, pregnant – has vanished. The circumstances bode the worst. What happened to Amy? The dog park club has brewed up a theory. And they mean to prove it.
