Beardies World, Joyce Ives

Today is my pit stop for the ‘Beardies Book Tour’ and I am giving you the opportunity to get your hands on a copy.

If you’re a dog lover or own a dog or two, then this fabulously inviting read is for you. It’s filled with fun and laughter and it’s all about the tale of a dog owner, her husband and their four Bearded Collies.

About the author:

Ever since she was a young girl, Joyce Ives has had a soft spot in her heart for dogs. So when the time came, she decided to leave her full time job to become an owner to her very first Bearded Collie – Kizzy. After this initial decision, they soon become owners to three otherbeautiful Beardies – Emma, Muffin and Solei. Unfortunately, due to ill health, both Joyce and John no longer look after any dogs but Joyce will always dream of owning more. Joyce now resides in Seaford, East Sussex, and is glad to finally have had time to write her first book.

About the book:

This book is Joyce Ives’ narrative to the twenty-six years she and husband John owned, cared for and loved their four Bearded Collies. The memories shared by Joyce in this book are likely to touch the heart of anyone who has had any experience of growing up and growing old with dogs. In her narrative Joyce has been able to capture beautifully how our special bond with our canine friends often becomes so significant in our life’s journey; our experiences of joy and laughter and at times our sadness and loss.

    Have a black lab cross, who didn’t have a clue how to play when we got him, so it was fun teaching a 8 month old “pup” how to play with a ball.
