Wayne Pacelle, President of Humane Society "bonds" with Phoebe Rose

I do consider myself a Renaissance Pug-fashionista, canine lifestyle maven, foodie (of course) and book lover.

Yes, although, I am unfortunately not able to "read", I do enjoy curling up "on top of" a good book while my Mom is trying to read (and I need to have her attention).

This is an endearing habit that I picked up from a neighbor's cat. I also like to kick up a lot of dirt to bury my little turd blossoms in the garden.

But, back to the point of this post. I had the extreme honor of attending the recent lecture by Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society at the Festival of Books at USC.

Wayne was talking about his new fascinating book, "The Bond" which delves into the deeply satisfying relationships between humans and animals.

I took advantage of the photo op...(well, who wouldn't!)

( Sorry Wayne, I didn't mean to snort and have a reverse sneezing attack during your talk.)

Sharing a "bond" with Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society

"The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them" continues to engage the nation in a lively discussion about our relationship -- and our responsibility -- to animals.

The best-selling book by President and CEO Wayne Pacelle has started a national conversation about animal protection, and is exposing millions of Americans to the work of The Humane Society of the United States.

Wayne Pacelle on the NBC Today Show interviewed about "The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them" exploring the on-the-ground work of The HSUS to end organized dogfighting in the nation’s urban communities.The Bond
