TAYE DIGGS AND HIS POOCH AT BOOK READING EVENT . . . FOR DOGS

NEW YORK, NY – Actor Taye Diggs hangs out with his dog Sammy after hosting a first-of-its-kind book reading event in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Diggs shared ‘tails’ from the newly released ALPO® “Real Dogs Eat Meat” Handbook to an audience of real dogs.   Hundreds of dogs and their owners across the country also participated in the event, which streamed live on the ALPO Web site, to hear Diggs read excerpts from the common sense guide to help dogs be dogs again.  The Handbook can be downloaded for free at ALPORealDogs.com.

About the event:

To celebrate the release of the ALPO® “Real Dogs Eat Meat” Handbook, actor, TV star and real dog owner Taye Diggs hosted a first-of-its-kind book reading event for dogs at The Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan this week.  The ALPO “Real Dogs Eat Meat” Handbook is a how-to manual written by 20 “paw-thors” that is designed to help dogs get back to the business of being dogs.  Diggs read excerpts from the Handbook to an audience of drooling dogs at the event, as well as dogs and their owners across the country who will participate virtually.

Now available for download at www.ALPORealDogs.com, the ALPO “Real Dogs Eat Meat” Handbook features entertaining stories (ghost written by the paw-thors’ owners) about life’s simple pleasures such as rolling in mud, burying bones and drooling for dinner.  The featured “paw-thors,” including Hank, Bear, Thor and 17 other candid canines, won a national photo/essay contest that searched for real dogs as part of an ALPO movement to celebrate a more common sense approach to pooch pampering

    thats a really good i dea to read to dogs and their owners, just to get the book out and selling and for the dogs and owners to interact! On the other hand, do the dogs actually listin? and what about the consern for the dogs such as dog fights and health? or do the owners have the dogs under controll?
