As Good as Gold

by Patricia Furstenberg



As engaging as a tail wag.

Celebrating the simple things in life as seen through the eyes of our old time favorite furry friends, “As Good as Gold” is a volume of poetry revealing the talent and humor we always knew our dogs possessed.

Dogs are full of questions, yet they are famed sellers of innocence especially when it comes to explaining their mishaps and often foolish effervescence through such pondering as “Why IS a Cat Not Like a Dog”, “As Brown as Chocolate”, “Silver Stars and Puppy Tail” or, best yet, “Dog or Book?”

A book with an enormous heart for readers of all ages, it includes 35 poems and haiku accompanied by expressive portraits of our canine friends. The poems are grouped in: Questions, Colors, Musings and Haiku.

* Ideal to boost you up by reading one poem at a time,
* Great conversational piece to have around on a rainy day,
* Fantastic tool to discuss colors in nature and everyday questions with your little ones,
* A gentle way to introduce children to animals’ feelings,
* Amazing picture to cheer you up.
* An ideal gift for any dog lovers!

Christie’s Review


This is the ABSOLUTE PERFECT book for poetry lovers, dog lovers, and nature lovers!

I have two great loves in my life, outside of my family, and that is books and dogs! Furstenberg captures exactly what makes dogs so very special. She gives us a peek into their lives and their connection to nature. I don’t usually read too much poetry, but I just adored this collection. The poetry I have read in the past hasn’t brought characters to life for me, but this one did. Each dog, cat, and animal was a character to me that I could see clearly in my mind as was each setting, whether in a home or out in nature.

Not only was this a book about dogs, it was a book about friendship and the importance of loving things different from yourself as was perfectly illustrated in the relationships between cats and dogs. People could certainly use a lesson in this! She also reiterated the loving relationship between dogs and people which certainly reminded me why I love my sweet Lab girls, Honey and Lily and why “in their hearts, they are as good as gold.”

If you are looking for a book to bring a smile to your face and warm your heart, you can’t go wrong with this little magical book of poetry! If you aren’t a dog lover or animal lover, Patricia Furstenberg just might make you one with this book of poetry!
