{9e44e636-b6e3-4197-9d47-dc645c72bcb9}Img400Decription: The apparent heart attack that killed kennel owner Max Turnbull has left seven pups in mourning, and his wife Peg suspecting foul play. But the only evidence is their missing prize pooch—a pedigreed poodle named Beau. Enter Melanie Travis. With her young son happily ensconced in day damp, the thirty-something teacher and single mother is talked into investigating her uncle’s death—unofficially, of course. Posing as a poodle breeder in search of the perfect stud, Melanie hounds Connecticut’s elite canine competitions, and finds an ally in fellow breeder Sam Driver. But her affection cools when she’s put on the scent of Sam’s questionable past…and hot on the trail of a poodle-hating neighbor and one elusive murderer who isn’t ready to come to heel. For, as Melanie soon discovers, in a championship dog-eat-dog world, the instinct for survival, and winning, can prove fatal.In A Pedigree to Die For the mysterious death of a kennel owner draws in Melanie Travis into the world of pups, pooches and poodles all vying for the best in breed. Will Melanie find a beau or just Beau this summer? Find out in this pleasant summer read. If you enjoy this book, well good news, there are 15 other books in the series.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, the leading supplier of eBooks and more to libraries, and Kensington Publishing Corp., publisher of Laurien Berenson’s unusual and fascinating mystery.

Monday, May 5th at 6 p.m., Jim and Gary Hess will be on hand at the WJ Niederkorn Library to talk about their grandfather’s fascinating legacy as the owner and operator of Wisconsin’s largest independent cooperage from 1904 to 1966.

 

The Frank J. Hess and Sons Cooperage factory manufactured and repaired beer kegs for most of the Wisconsin breweries, and the Hamm’s Brewery in Baltimore, Maryland; Star Brewery in Sioux City, Iowa; and the West End Brewery in Utica, New York. They were also known for making and repairing wine and whiskey barrels. In 1966 the Frank J. Hess and Sons Cooperage factory closed.  It was the last cooperage factory in America that manufactured white oak beer kegs for the breweries.

 

Join us for a fun night brewed in Wisconsin History!

Well Port is a dog town. So many good conscientious dog owners. But surely some cat magazine could get their act together and produce a good electronic version that we could add to our digital collection in the future. After all they make for such cute pictures. But for now, dog and horse lovers enjoy these digital magazines (and you lucky few who are birders).

Download them to your laptop or tablet to take with you on the road.

You can view the magazines in your web browser or in an app. You can keep them for as long as you want.

Want to view these magazines or any other of the 167, click on the Zinio Magazines link to the right to get started.

To find these titles – From the “Genres” drop down menu select “Pets and Animals”.
