by Mail Order Annie and Howard Weinstein
A Welsh Corgi pup named Mail Order Annie honked car horns, vanquished baby gates, schemed after cookies, donuts and room-service sandwiches, starred at STAR TREK conventions…and charmed everyone she met. But charm doesn’t mean a puppy won’t eat the kitchen walls!
Best-selling author-turned-trainer Howard Weinstein tells Annie’s story in a truly universal dog book, and shares his hard-won expertise:
- Giving new pup-owners training tips and a clear idea of what to expect from life with a wonderful dog, including “Puppy Prep 101” and “Puppy School 202”
- Helping current dog-owners get the most from the human-canine relationship
- Sharing stories to touch the hearts of all dog-lovers.
Written with a journalist’s eye for truth and detail, a novelist’s story-telling skills, and a professional trainer’s practical observations and experience…
Straight from Annie’s heart to yours!

“…The first book we have seen that truly describes the delights and tribulations of living with Pembrokes… The author’s touching, funny, and perceptive history of his 15-year relationship with Mail Order Annie provides humor and insight into the special world of those who choose to share our lives with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. His practical and well-designed training chapters…include much more than basic obedience. This little book is a treasure that we will be proud to include with every Tim Tam Corgi puppy. “

“…What really amazed me was how well Mr. Weinstein captured Annie’s personality and spirit, and truly brought her to life on every page… As more people read this book, I predict that a new word will creep into the lexicon…the ‘corgi-cule,’ defined by Mr. Weinstein as ‘the smallest particle of food still discernable to the eyes and/or nose of a Welsh Corgi–and often too small to be detected by humans (or, possibly, even electron microscopes).’ It is moments like this–or when his four-year-old neighbor tells her parents that the stars in the sky are Annie’s footprints going to Heaven–that make you laugh and cry and truly touch your heart… This is a wonderfully insightful book for new puppy owners, especially Corgi puppy owners… The funny thing about Annie is that she was no more special or extraordinary than my dog or yours. But what Mr. Weinstein manages to do is write the beautiful memoir that I would want to write for my dog. “

“…Sensible lessons for raising any puppy… Recommended as a ‘must-read’ for all my friends and new puppy-owners.”
Jo Ann Ruehl, Editor of “OVation,” the Ohio Valley Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club’s newsletter, Indiana
“…An enchanting combination of good reading and good instructions for the raising of our beloved Corgi puppies… For breeders, I heartily recommend this book to be given with EVERY puppy you place. You will be doing the new owners and the puppy a great service.”
