More than 80 full-color canine cartoons accompany a pack of dog terms, tidbits, expressions and proverbs all punctuated with the Rynski signature style.

Made with love by Tucson writer, artist, and dog Reiki practitioner Ryn Gargulinski, the doggie dictionary serves up:

• A humorous take on dog words and terms
• Real-life origins and meanings of dog expressions and proverbs
• Intro section on doggie basics that includes ear types, body language and the true meaning of a wagging tail

This book is a must for dog owners, dog lovers, wordsmiths and folks who simply dig a really good laugh. Amaze your friends. Amuse your dogs. Astound your family with the perky pooch facts found in this delightful dog dictionary.


While Ryn Gargulinski (aka Rynski) is the official human author and illustrator of this book, the devoted dog mom has been inspired by her hounds along the way. Current dogs Elmo and Gigi served as muses as well as models for some of the doggie illustrations.

Ryn has long been weaving dogs into her life and career, covering the pet beat at newspapers, writing online dog research articles and blogs, and selling one-of-a-kind dog signs on right here on the Rynski Etsy shop.

With Reiki Level II certification, Rynski now includes Reiki for dogs into the mix.

Wow, we love these Ryn! Thank you so much for the beautiful custom touches and rework to make these unique ... they are fantastic, and the expressions are just like my doggies! You are such a creative, fun person; I had so much fun chatting with you across the globe. I've got to think up something else for you, because it was such a lovely experience dealing with you and your work is quite unique. Fantastic! :o)))
