Please join Inlandia in conversation with Riverside’s favorite dog-loving author Teresa Rhyne as we laugh, learn, and celebrate “National Lost Dog Awareness Day” all at once!
Teresa J. Rhyne is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dog Lived (and So Will I), a surprisingly hilarious memoir about her dog and her both surviving cancer. The sequel, The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I), won the Pat Santi Memorial award from the Dog Writers Association of America. Her newest book, Poppy in the Wild: A Lost Dog, Fifteen Hundred Acres of Wilderness and the Dogged Determination that Brought Her Home continues her tradition of writing humorously about misfortunes that happen to her and her dogs.
Praise for Poppy in the Wild:
“Teresa J. Rhyne is the best kind of person, a dog person. In this beautiful, honestly told memoir, she leads us through an adventure that will inspire any dog lover. A life-affirming read, or as any dog would say if they could speak, ‘a real treat!’”—W. Bruce Cameron, #1 New York Times and #1 USA Today bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose
“Delightful. Teresa’s writing is imbued with humor. Poppy in the Wild is a wonderful, heartwarming read. You will love meeting Teresa and will want to take her out for a drink. Maybe you will even want to adopt a beagle. But, as she points out, there are countless dogs and cats in need of foster homes and adoptive families. There’s even one waiting for a home near you.” —Pamela Kramer, Book Reporter
“A heartfelt story that highlights the powerful bond that can exist between humans and animals, while reminding readers how emotionally rewarding the selfless act of rescuing dogs from shelters and other bad circumstances can be.” —Joel McGee, former Animal Planet development executive and executive producer of CBS TV’s “Lucky Dog”
“Rhyne is a quirky narrator with her own issues and an overwhelming passion for dogs, especially beagles. As she records Poppy’s adventures, she also shares valuable information on finding lost pets. Dog lovers will root for this tiny beagle and her devoted seeker.”—Booklist
Teresa Rhyne is a lawyer, animal obsessive, coffee addict, wine lover, writer, and breast cancer survivor, though definitely not in that order. She splits her time between Riverside and Paso Robles, California, where she lives with her long-suffering significant other, Chris, and their three beagles
