Lani, Rosie, Kai & Ruby – Our Pups on Piste!

Thank you so much to Lou at Waggy Tales Book Review & Dog Blog for her review of my latest book, Pups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy.

In summary, Lou says;

“Pups on Piste is a humorous and incredibly informative factual account of the family’s exploits in a small Italian resort, well known for its off-piste skiing…

…The descriptions of Monte Rosa are outstanding, making the book a must-have Italian travel companion or a winter sports destination to add to the bucket list.”

We enjoy the ever-changing views of the mountains, the smell of log fires and the muffled silence of a snow-covered wilderness. The days have been a glorious blur of joyous ski descents and beautiful walks with the dogs under bluebird skies, followed by a sauna, a simple, hearty meal and a DVD.

Our skiing has improved markedly, although the only Italian that I can claim to have learnt is the word for Haemorrhoids. This is a condition from which the Italian version of Facebook seems to think I suffer, judging by the frequency of pop-up ads for some special kind of haemorrhoid-relieving toilet paper!
