We are about to answer the age-old question...what is the greatest year ever in literature? Presenting 2022..."Citizen K-9" in March, "Holy Chow" in July, and "Santa's Little Yelpers" in October. I have read them all (except for one which isn't written yet), and I can tell you they are nothing short of brilliant. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you David for giving us something wonderful to look forward to in this New Year of 2022๐Ÿ˜. You are such a gifted writer! I feel like I know Andy & the regulars, his/your sense of humor & a great mystery!!! I love all your books & thank you for your wonderful service to our fur babies โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Happy New Year Please keep writing and rescuing.

Hi David… just a quick proofread for you… the year should be 2022!! Can’t wait to read these! I always enjoy your books and your pup updates. Keep ‘em coming! Happy New Year!!!!

I still think “Happy Howl Weenie” would make a great title. I know you lean towards Christmas themes but Halloween would make an interesting change.

Yay! I have a hard time reading other mystery authors……I keep comparing them to you and your books!

I'm now back at the beginning of the Andy Carpenter series after reading everything you've written!

Going to be a great year for your devoted readers!

Citizen K-9 and Holy Chow were already on my TBR list, and I've just added Santa's Little Yelpers--thank you for the heads-up. I think I've read all of your books, David. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. Love your books. Keep writing and keep rescuing! The newest member of the Tucson VA Hospital’s ‘Pets for Vets’ therapy dog program, of which I am the coordinator, is a rescue Golden Retriever whose owner started the Golden Retriever Rescue group in Tucson.

Happy New Year ๐ŸŽ†. Looking forward to all your books. Love your pictures of your fur babies. I would love to hug them all.๐Ÿค—

It makes me so happy to have these books to look forward to this year! You’ve just improved my outlook x 3 for the coming year. I kept hoping that you would write more more more. Thank you, David Rosenfelt

Happy New Year David and Deb and all those dogs. Much love and health

Oh my gosh - the acknowledgments on 'Play Dead' read by Grover had me in stitches!! I had to listen again ... I feel he is the perfect voice for Andy. Thank you for writing this series!

Yay! Can't wait! Citizen K9 is obviously my birthday present ๐Ÿ˜‰! Happy New Year!๐ŸŽ‰

They all look good!. Currently reading Best in Snow. Trying to Pace myself so I don't read it all at once. Want to make it last.

Good to know there is more coming. I am enjoying Best in Snow now. Much as I enjoy your books, I am even happier with your rescues. Happy New Year to you and all the dogs.

I am so glad they are brilliant additions to my library. Happy New Year!

So glad I will have great literature from this acclaimed author to read yet another year! You are the best! Must be that Maine air!

Can’t wait to listen to them all on my commute! Thank you for writing and rescuing!

Certainly they are brilliant! Your faithful and eager readers expect nothing less! ๐Ÿคฉ

LOVE your books—keep’em coming! Happy New Year!

I have just finished binge reading every Andy Carpenter book as well as every other book you've written. I couldn't read them fast enough, usually reading a book a day once I started one. When I read the last Andy Carpenter and couldn't just reach out for the next one, I felt like I had lost my best friend. Can't wait for these to come out!

oh, oh, i've missed 2 !! by the way, i know andy doesn't care for all those never ending christmas days but.....when my sons were young their father & i started with st. nicholas day & ended with the feast of the 3 kings !! that was to try to dispel all the commercial hype surrounding christmas.

THIS makes my new year!! (And just as a FYI…. I loved ‘Dog Eat Dog’… just letting you know!! ๐Ÿ˜)

Whew! I am addicted to this series so what a relief there are more๐Ÿ˜Š

Every morning is exactly the same. Keisha and Sonny wrestle in our bedroom at 4:15 AM, we pretend to sleep for a half hour, then I carry Hunter downstairs, give Rosie her morning chewie...etc., etc....every day. This morning I said to Debbie, "Phil? Phil Connors? It's me, Ned Ryerson." I wonder how many people will get the reference. ... See MoreSee Less

We don't have as many as you, but we have a pack of 12. The oldest is 15 - a mostly blind and deaf podenco rescued from Spain, who every year we say - surely, she won't make it another year, and yet.... then there are 3 more podencos, 2 greyhounds, 3 galgos, 1 galgo mix, a geriatric Great Dane and an Irish Wolfhound puppy. 8 of our 12 are over the age of 10. Our morning parade of outs starts at about 6 am. Ironically, it isn't any of our golden oldies - but usually the 9 month old puppy. Every day, I'm grateful it's the same thing... because one day it won't be. Maybe that will be the day I won't be carrying the 15 year old to the back door because she can't find her own way, or waiting for the 10 year old Great Dane to stir from his slumbers. So, I cherish these mornings. Because I won't always have them. <3

My husband just had his third surgery for bladder cancer the day after his 80th Birthday. I gave him Dogtripping to lift his spirits. I can't wait to hear him laugh out loud. Bless you for all you do while not even knowing how much you do.

Why is it when i read a post by david, i hear andy carpenters voice?

๐ŸŽถ They say we’re young…. ๐ŸŽถ

One of my fav movies. You have the best sense of humor.

Only four dogs here but, yes, our days and nights revolve around their needs. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Just lost my oldest, a 17 yo dachshund. I miss Aiden so much!

I got lucky with my latest rescue. She’s a dachshund who will happily sleep until 10 as long as she’s cuddled under the blankets!

David Rosenfelt , I have two African Grey parrots that are 26 and 21 years old. EVERY morning, I bring them out of the bird bedroom, fix them fresh vegetables and fruit and nuts, change clean papers, share my human breakfast, give them play time, seal up little dixie cups with macaroni and nuts for them to discover during the day, then clean it all up after they go into their cages. I relate to your experience....every damn day! (Love them like kids, though).

I live in Woodstock IL where Groundhog Day was filmed and live with 15 rescue dogs so yeah, I totally get it!

Thought of you when I saw this quote from Betty White. RIP. “Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a Golden Retriever, one's life and one's outlook is never quite the same.”- Betty White

Mine start at 3am and it is the 2 year old. Then we play musical dogs. The oldest is 14 and stays out the longest as I try to keep the 2 and 3 old kids away from him so he enjoys his peaceful time. The 9 yr old Newf thinks she can only go out through the pet door but must return via the kitchen door! Fun times with 6 dogs

I love dogs. We have five and many visitors. I dislike Groundhog Day. I could use a stronger word than dislike but I am restraining myself. Happy New Year! Keep up the great work.

You got me! The quote was so familiar and I could almost see the faces but it eluded me at the end. Thanks for the Grounding on this special Day have a great New Year to you and yours

Do you and Debbie ever actually get to sleep?

I’ve been reading many authors- most of the series include a dog. But I’ve got to say… I miss Andy and Lauri and Tara and Willie, and Ricky, etc… I found your series after you’d written all of them. I read them one after another. Doing that got me used to knowing I could read another few pages at night after my day was done. Then it stopped… and now I’m waiting like the rest of your readers for Holy Chow to be released. So I fill up my time reading as many dog series as I can find. March can’t get here soon enough!

I take my dogs out for the last pee of the day at 11 pm and then go up to bed. My husband usually takes them out at 7-8 am. When we have a puppy I sleep in the family room to let them out through the night. I actually took out a couch and put a single bed in there for one of them. It is also a great quick napper spot and a comfortable place to bark at squirrels and deer for the dogs!

Admire you so much for all the dog care! Got the reference as I read it. Seen that movie over and over...

I only have one very, very spoiled cat whose alarm clock is set for 3:30am who has now trained me to rise, take care of her needs and then return to bed for another few hours๐Ÿคฃ

Love you David/Andyโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. My best to you, your wife & your “ fur babies”. Now, it’s a New Year, when can I enjoy your new book?? I’m sure you must be working on one????๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

I love your books. The sarcasm of Andy Carpenter really hits home for me. In the past year our black lab has gone from sleeping in a crate, to spending the night on the couch, to stretching out between the wife and I in bed every night. Bill Murray would laugh his head off.

Me too... dog out back door, bathroom break, get dog food from freezer for his dinner, take his breakfast from fridge, push coffee button, let dog in front door, feed him, feed me... every single day.

Thank goodness for our doggy door. No need to get up and take him out!

Love all your books. Biscuits and special love to all your fur faces. Happy and peaceful New Year.

Groundhog’s Day!!! Thank you for all your fun Facebook comments! I really appreciate you!!

It took Keisha almost fifteen minutes to feel comfortable in our house.

Comment on Facebook

Listen - you can't rush these things. Clearly it's going to take at least two beers before she has you coming to find her chin-deep in the bed pillows.

This is the picture of a safe and happy dog.

She recognized her chair! A perfect Christmas addition! ๐Ÿ’

Lol she knows she is safe and loved ๐Ÿ’•

Such a cutie and very blessed to be part of such a special family. ๐Ÿ’“

David, you need to write a book on how you manage this great menagerie with tips for those of us who are afraid to bring in even three dogs together. Please consider. Merry Christmas.

My sister does rescue and one of her dogs lived on a cement slab and immediately when he got in the house he jumped up on their sofa like he had been waiting for it his whole life!!!!

Awww! Looks like Keisha is waiting to find out what Andy Carpenter has been up to!! Just like the rest of us!

How wonderful! We just added 4 special needs cats to our household, so I know the feeling of joy it brings (however long it takes) when they finally realize they are 'home'. <3 Wishing you all the Merriest Christmas! ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ„

I am not a dog, but I would feel comfortable the minute I walked in and saw all of the beautiful fur babies.

She is beautiful. Merry Christmas to you and your family and especially those many beautiful canines you have about your house. GOD BLESS YOU.!!!!

She is planning her day...being loved on, breakfast, more lovins, nap, lovins, lunch, lovins, lovins continues foreverโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Such a beautiful girl. Wishing all health, happiness, love and laughter to you and your family this holiday season.

It's amazing to me how all your fur family get along, and how many people complain and remove a "third" dog because it doesn't get along with the others. How is it that this is so? Blessings to you and your family, furry and smooth skinned.

She needs her own Andy Carpenter book! I am sure Tara would love her!

Love your books!! Love this pup!!!!

Totally love your books -have read them all. Thank you for such entertaining reading and for rescuing so many dogs.

She is beautiful. She seems very content now that she has her forever home.๐Ÿ’•

She is adorable! How many does that make now? Happy Holidays to you all!

How many dogs do you have now? The love you and your wife has for dogs is an inspiration and I love your books. Merry Christmas to you and your family (that includes all the pets because I know that pets are family)

Doozies always know good people! Merry Christmas to all of you

It took her 15 minutes checking out all the possible "best spots"...looks like she found hers.

Such a blessing to be a part of your family. โค๏ธโค๏ธ

You are too awesome to share with us! I love you all and wish for you all the Love. Joy and Happiness that the magic of Christmas brings!

I love her. So beautiful and she looks like she might have found home โค๏ธ.

Comment on Facebook

Dogs know good people. My dog didn’t like men either but he jumped on a man’s lap on the bus and now I’ve been married to that man 7 years.

What that says is that Keisha knows your heart and that you have a sincere love for dogs...she is a smart girl, trust her.

I'm not particularly fond of men either. The majority of them aren't very likeable and I definitely prefer my dogs. Any dog who is lucky enough to be adopted by you has found one of the very few good men out there. Thank you for being such a great dog dad.

As you know, dogs are instinctive about their feelings. She had probably heard about what a great author you are and couldn’t wait to inspire you by her presence! ๐ŸŒŸ

She probably just did not like one specific man or even two – and for good reason. So she has good taste and discerning judgment

She is beautiful!!! Please include her in your next Andy Carpenter book…she’s a star, for sure.

She is beautiful David Rosenfelt. I love you, your dogs and especially your books. Thank you for your rescue work.

I love you so very much for your great humanitarian activities with God's animal kind. And absolutely love your books. God-bless you merry Christmas happy New Year. Yeah and as always keep up the great postings we love following you.

Dogs know when they meet a true dog lover and rescuer. They can spot people who will treat them with kindness and love. You are very clearly one of those people…a truly exceptional human being. ๐Ÿ’—

Absolutely precious! God Bless you for doing what you can to help these animals.

It says she knows you are a kind, compassionate, dog-loving man!!

It means that she knows who to trust. It is a gift when you ooze that much kindness.

She’s beautiful Thank you for rescuing so many wonderful dogs We rescue dogs too and our lives are so wonderful with them We r always looking for a pug and they are so hard to find If you know of a pug rescue please let me know Thank you Also thank you for writing such great books I’ve read all your books

You’re amazing. Don’t forget it ๐Ÿฅฐ Hope you’re writing a new Andy Carpenter book for me??? I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOKS but I’ve read everyone & now hoping there is a new one soon??โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป. Merry Christmas & blessings for all the pup dogs you are caring for ๐Ÿ˜

She’s beautiful. Great Christmas present for you and the rest of your crew. Have a Very Merry Christmas!๐ŸŽ„

Gorgeous. Maybe she doesn’t like mean men but she likes kind ones!

Absolutely precious! Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ to you and your family (including your fur babies)

She is beautiful and dogs know when someone loves animals. I want to save all of them. Too many dogs, cats and horses are just thrown away. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโค๏ธ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

What a beauty. You got very lucky Keisha, welcome to your furever home. You are a special man David and the dogs know this.

It says your heart is pure and full of love David Rosenfelt. Merry Christmas. Thank you for the gifts of your words and the pictures of your furbabies.

Uhhh. . .my husband was the ONLY man our Aussie Shepherd (rescued as an adult dog) liked. We, too, had been warned that he "hated" men. But he instantly loved Hubby. LOL. . .yes, we never thot of this, but what might that have said about hubby? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

It says you are a good human and you are a safe place!

Dogs know good people the second they meet them! Congratulations on your beautiful new girl, David! And what a great Christmas gift you have given her! ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŽ„

you saved her from a shelter, she will love you, she probly thinks she hit doggy heaven with all your fur kids,

๐Ÿ’• Another beautiful addition to a wonderful and loving household. Love seeing your fur babies.

I couldn't agree more. Write with both hands so you get out faster. Read everything you have published.

Ha! Yay as to the top 3 authored by my FAVORITE author!

Almost finished with "Best in Snow". I hope your family, both human & canine, have a very Merry Christmas!

I haven’t published my novel yet but until then, I agree wholeheartedly with your list. The only time I ever relax is when I sit down to read your latest. Thank you.

This list is totally accurate! I think I saw the same on GoodReads! ๐Ÿคฃ

Just finished Best in Snow and passed it on. What other murder mystery can you read and end up laughing out loud a couple times?

You’ll always be tops on my list! I love your writing and all of your books. Can hardly wait when you have a new book coming out.

I just finished listening to Best in Snow. Loved it.

I'm on a Rosenfelt/Tara binge: one a day for the last 11 days. Loving the experience... will be continuing.

I discovered your Andy Carpenter series a short while ago ~ after reading your book about traveling to Maine and the one about precious Tara. I have binge-read them and just finished #7 (starting #8 momentarily ๐Ÿ˜Š). FABULOUS books ~ can’t stop!!

Oh what fun to discover your page....I am enjoying your books so much. Listening to them on audio, the reader is fabulous. Waiting for Best in Snow at the library....

You're my favorite author! I get the audiobooks for myself, husband gets the hardcopies, and son and his girlfriend also get the audiobooks. Thank you for doing what you do! Merry Christmas to you and yours. ๐Ÿ™‚

I've read alot of your books so cant wait to get another one at my book store. Love you and your wife.

Finally got to the top of the wait list at my library for ‘Best in Snow’! Tara (and all the other secondary characters) are always worth the wait!

Just finished reading The K Team. Thanks for your awesome, dry sense of humor. Your books are terrific!

Oh, I agree with your list!!

I love your books. Maybe you can come to the Basset National Specialty sometime and revel in Basset Hounds!! 2022 in Rockford, IL. โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

That's hilarious ๐Ÿ˜‚I have all your books and you and your wife do wonderful things for your house full of dogs! Bless your hearts ♥๏ธ

Have all your books, written and audio. Love them. Read with my..

Reading "Rescued". Found another typo, "we're" instead of "we've", pg.138. I would like to volunteer to be a proofreader on your future books.

Loved Best in Snow

You forgot to include a trashy romance novel!

David, I hope it's acceptable to call you by your first name, you have a fabulous sense of humor! What will I do now that I've finished the series?????

Just preordered Holy Chow!!!! Can't wait til July!!!!! And yes I agree with your list. Love all your books!!!!!!

Love each and every book, some I have read twice. Thanks for the many hours of total enjoyment. When will the next book be ready for publication? Enjoy your Christmas.๐Ÿ’“

My soul pup was a white Boxer Bull Mastiff mix. He weighed in at about 110 lb and had the best most loving heart ever. Knowing how much space Sweet Baby James took up I can't imagine having multiples! Your pups are beautiful and so are you.

They are! All dogs are beautiful..๐ŸถThey can do no wrong, they are a blessing in my life!

Love love love! I’d hug them all the time if they were mine

I think all dogs are great! Happy thanksgiving David Rosenfelt / Andy to you and your family including the fur people.

They are so wonderful! My first dog was a Bullmastiff. She was so gentle and she just loved people

Our first adopted dog was a mastiff. At 8 years old he was taken to a vet to be euthanized because his “family” was moving. He lived to 12 and was great with our adopted puppy and our adopted cats. He was also quite protective of us, his new family. Miss him so much.

I love to read your posts. We have several dogs. You guys are an inspiration. Our family doesn’t understand our love of dogs. Your’s probably doesn’t either!๐Ÿ˜Š

I had a Cane Corso for 10 years that I loved dearly. He was the best dog I've ever had and I've had a lot of dogs!

How much land do you have, for cryin’ out loud! Clearly, you aren’t in Paterson anymore

So adorable!โค๏ธ You are so wonderful people to care so wonderfully for these beautiful dogs. I have all your books I love them. I really enjoyed your moving book. I got your Best in Snow I had to order it to be sent to my house because Barnes & Noble still didn’t have because of shipping problems they have. I got it and the store still hasn’t. I love it thank you!

The late, great Mocos, French Mastiff, tiny for her breed at just over 100 pounds. She was incredible.

Thankful for dogs! Happy Thanksgiving

You are! I had a Mastiff on a rescue transport aptly named "Big Rig". He was such a sweetheart!! ๐Ÿ’•

Love mastiffs our Doodlebug maximus died a little over a year ago. We miss him so much

An old mastiff wandered into our yard this summer, sniffing and lost. He was sweet, but kind of oblivious. Like an idiot, I let him into my house while I was going to locate an owner. Big mistake, I have two African Greys in big cages. Oh lordy, he went nuts and jumped on the cage! I had all I could do to maneuver him back outside. I found his home, right up the hill, thank goodness. He was a sweetie, but about 130 lbs of muscle!! Lol!

Love you both for what you do. Have you watched the new Turner and Hootch series on Netflix? Dog de Bordeaux I think.

I believe you are all lucky to have each other.

Yes, my niece adopted a Senior mastiff 5 years ago. We โค๏ธ Maggie! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿถ

Happy Thanksgiving to your family and all your babies!

Mastiffs are not only beautiful, but they are such sweet, loving, gentle giants! Yours are gorgeous!

4,000 dogs are thankful for you and your wife ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ˜ป

Is it a Merle. I love that coloring. We saved a pup one time from a dumpster he was a snoring awesome pup.

I love that all your furniture is covered, just like mine. No fancy digs for the famous writer! Of course, there's no such thing as a perfect Better Homes and Gardens house when you have more than one animal. I gave up on that years ago.๐Ÿค— Thanks for the look inside.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Debbie and that beautiful pack of pups.

David, no matter if it’s a book or a post, you are always funny!

I see the wit , intellect , comraderie and I suspect a good deal more love than present at that famous table. Congratulations on your choice in companions

Your Fur babies are fabulous and you are so funny. I'm sure some people do not know about the Algonquin. Not sure if it still has its round tables discussions like it did back in the day.

David must be in trouble...the dogs look serious! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Looks like mom and dad may have a mutiny on their hands.

I finished Best in Snow last night. It was so good and very funny.

Hysterical! But truly their discussion Is much more thoughtful than most humans could possibly say. If only we understood!!! Love them all!!!๐Ÿ’š

Precious pups! Looks like you've walked in on a "secret conference", David.๐Ÿ˜‚

Just finished "Best in Snow" and as always I couldn't put it down.

Thanks to an amazing high school Advanced Literature teacher, I understand the reference 40 years later. Cute pups.

Which one is Dorothy Parker????

You're not feeding those dogs enough!

HA! Looks like the annual "How do we manage to grab the turkey when nobody is looking" discussion....๐Ÿ˜

Is the Algonquin still going on 43rd st. If so, I’m sure you would be at Dorothy Parker’s right hand…….serving drinks.

I just finished up Best in Snow, so good! I will just sit on all the the raves because there's probably a couple people that haven't read it yet! ๐Ÿ˜ I look forward to every single one, thanks!

I caught them at it when I was coming downstairs. They shut up and looked innocent as soon as they saw me.

Oh dear David. I've read nearly everything you've written - some more than once. However, being a top-notch author, you should already know that when you have three - it's "among", not "between.".....

Looks like a planning meeting ๐Ÿ˜‚

They are so good looking?Which one is female? And why isn’t she named Dorothy? ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ

They don't look a bit spoiled.

Looks pretty serious. You could be in trouble.

So adorable!โค๏ธ. Sue N.

Great minds at work.

Love seeing pictures of the CANINE Rosenfelts.

That's a great picture. Bet they could solve the problem of climate control

Debbie is a genius. At 4:30 every morning since we moved the clocks, Sunny (our new golden) and Bear (our St. Bernard/lab mix) have started wrestling...waking up the entire house. Debbie finally figured out the reason...we had not reset the coffeemaker, and the beep it made going on triggered the chaos. It was the equivalent of Michael Buffer yelling 'Let's get ready to rumble'. So we reset the coffeemaker, and today we slept all the way to 5:30. Life is good. ... See MoreSee Less

Have a new pup and we sleep until 4 am do a potty and pre breakfast snack for all 5 pets then sleep until 7!

Thanks for the great laugh. It takes a village. We love you for your work with animals and your great good humor. And all your wonderful books. Whoever thought sleeping to 5:30 was fabulous. We still get the 4:30 wake up call.

My coffee maker has been blinking for 3 years. I need to sign up for a refresher course at MIT to set its clock.

Living successfully with multiple dogs takes a genius for sure.

Well, I’m reading this at 4:30 am and I don’t even have a dog.

As my pets get older it seems that every time we adjust the clocks (in either direction) they start begging for their nightly treats earlier and earlier. What is suppose to be an 8:30 pm treat time is now starting at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Dogs are so smart! "The coffemaker's on, we can make noise now!"

Remind me to tell you someday about the Braille clock my husband found and set up for a rooster crowing at 5am and resulting morning chorus from 3 Airedale puppies!

Debbie is a genius!! Thanks for loving and caring for all those beautiful fur babies. โค๏ธ

How funny, your family is great, your books are fabulous, you have it all.

Try setting it Forward another hour and you'll get to sleep until 6:30!!

I have the opposite problem. I'M awake at 4:30 every morning and have to lie quietly in bed until at least 6 (they would sleep till 7:30 given the chance) so I don't wake the dogs sleeping in my room. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

My cats understand that my alarm going off on weekday mornings means that breakfast is coming and they go nuts. They sleep later on weekends when there is no alarm.

No ? You have some of the smartest dogs ever! They keep you in line! Love the new book. Thx for the smiles and enjoyment.

Love “Best in Snow.” Already rereading it! Just couldn’t resist!

This feed on Facebook was followed by a video with an actual bear. I started reading and the video playing below and thought you’d lost it! Bear was actually A bear!

Pavlov was so brilliant to figure out triggers years ago.

Our poor cat has waited by her automatic feeder for several days waiting for it to rotate and reveal food. It's been a looooog wait!

Nicely done, Debbie!

Thanks for sharing some of the funny events that involve your fur babies!

Dogs are such creatures of habit. As I age, I’m finding that I am too!๐Ÿ˜

My 2 rescues took a few days to adjust. We went from everyone up, pottied, and breakfast starting at 5am when I was working to 8am now that I'm retired. Sweet!

How funny!!! Love your books and hope you never stop writing.

Those beeps! My dogs get so frightened when the smoke detector battery alerts go off! And then we have to find them!

Remember this 5:30 AM serenade? Daylight Savings Time has caused the little darlings to change their schedule, so today they did it at 4:30 AM. They must think we are dairy farmers. ... See MoreSee Less

Over the years my dogs aged and left me, the last only two months ago. The house is now clean, peacefully quiet, I’m no longer tripping over scattered bones and toys. It’s horrid-noone should have to live that way.

I can relate! Our beagle had us up at 4am crying for breakfast since her empty stomach alarm did not switch off daylight savings time.

I saw a story about a woman who couldn't decide which dog to adopt, so she bought the whole shelter!! Figured it HAD to be your wife ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

For our old girl it’s 3:30 am these days ( she gets fed at 4:30). Thankfully we are in Az where our time doesn’t change or else we would be up at 2:30 am! By the way I am really enjoying your new book.

David- I’m reading your Dogtripping book right now. I thought when I finished Best in Snow that I would read the last book you have written Holy Chow, but found out it won’t be available until July 5, 2022. I was very upset because I have read your 25 books back to back and have become an “Andy Addict”. I found you by reading the KTeam first. So I’m out of dog books and will have to hunt for another author. Any suggestions?

LOL- could be worse... at 330 I was woke up by a symphony of coyotes in the back yard and a dog crying ๐Ÿ™ dunno whose dog but sure sounded like they got one. walked all the way out back this morning, didnt see any trace, but they sure sounded close last night.

My newest rescue screeches louder than that ๐Ÿคฃ She was fascinated by all that adorable howling. They all sound like small dogs. My small dogs sound like labs ๐Ÿคฃ

I thought about your doggies this morning and wondered if they would get you up earlier. Animals don't know the difference they just know the time they normally get up and do whatever they do. Thanks for the posting. Love your books and your doggies.

Our doggo made it to 5:15. Guess it’s time for me to finish my latest Andy Carpenter book as long as I’m up.

We really did have to adjust the cows gradually, they were ready when we weren't!!

My Lucy gets up 5am every single day..hiw she know about the time change is my mystery

I guess I’m really lucky. My Angel slept like a champ & didn’t make a sound till I got up at 7:30. She’s a good girlโค๏ธ

They sure can carry a tune! My doodle Olive got up at 8 am, we live in Scottsdale so our time is the same! How long of a wait til the next book David?

Better than a rooster !! I loved your latest book. Yours are the only books I pay full price for . The other books I get are free from book -bub and E reader cafe . I love Andy Carpenter that much. Lol

Just finished Dog Eat Dog, loved it and loved that Laurie saw her favorite author โœ๏ธ, โค๏ธ

Dumb time change. Fixed the clock on the microwave but lost the instructions to reprogram the pets.

David, that’s the beauty of having to get up at 4:00. They don’t sing until I’ve already been up for an hour. But yes, they are punctual!

My 6.6 lb Yorkie was ready at 3:30. Luckily we get on couch and go back to sleep for a few hours.

I am laughing while feeling very sympathetic, 5:30 was way too early to begin with.

Remind me not to turn on the volume to this when my dogs are sleeping next to me.

Mine were up early today too but not at that hour and of course I totally spaced on the time change. Now they’re resting of course.

I have cats and they were loudly meowing this morning because they were fed an hour late. ๐Ÿ™„

Dogs don’t understand time change, I have been up twice already and it’s currently 5:54 am . I might get another 1/2 hour before I need to feed my two pups.

Cats too. The 6 am stomp on me with needle legs and purr came at 5 am this morning. ๐Ÿ˜†

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’™Nothing quite like a nice EARLY morning concert ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’—

Welcome to my world of rescue Livestock Guardian dogs. They don't howl but bark non stop if a moth farts in Jackson Hole.

Singing the songs of their people!

Wow, this would be awesome if they could do it around 8 am rather than 5:30 ๐Ÿ˜ณ. The rooster is filing for unemployment ๐Ÿ˜‚. Loved the latest book!

I don't know what got them going but as I played the video My Sweet girl Poppy nearly beat me to death wagging her tail. She's the one with only three legs and the weaponized tail. And, by the way, I noticed the books on the table I hope you're signing those and that one of them is going to be for me ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ok so now you know at least one of your dogs have Husky and/or Beagle in them and taught everybody how to do that. lol

Obviously there is much to sing about at Chez Rosenfelt!

I get the feeling something with a siren just went down the road.

Looks (and sounds) like heaven to me! Better get breakfast in the works!

Does it help to know, you’re not alone? My crew, of 8, though not as large as yours, loves to have early morning sing alongs too. It’s music to my ears Monday through Friday.

Beautiful!! They are loved and happy! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’œ

you are one lucky man to wake up to the howlelujah chorus each morning......

They must be alerting you that their individual copies of Best in Snow was just delivered by Amazon.

I am so glad you do it l, and I love dogs, but I have no idea how you handle this. ๐Ÿ’—

Yep same here...15 rescue dogs, never need an alarm.

LMAO!! Love the music!! Better you than me! BTW, just finished your latest book and…wait for it…loved it!

They are almost harmonizing. I would save that recording and use it as a ringtone on my phone. โค๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพโค

I didn't think there was anyone else who was crazy enough to live like this...other than me! I love it!!!

Hounds of love!

I tried to listen but my 4 dogs had to join in!

You are wonderful. We hear this every morning but from one part beagle we have. Recently she started her barking at 6:30 a.m.when my husband left for work and finally quit at 9:30. I never hear or see anything that could cause our Holly to do this. Thank you for the lovely cacophony.

Oh my goodness ๐Ÿ˜ They’re just saying good morning!

OMG...That is sooooo adorable........Great alarm clocks..lol

Music to my ears, Wish I was there to say good morning.

Just precious. Of course, would be more so at 8-9!!! Just finished Best in Snow - loved it as always. Ok, ready for the next one.

Omg at first I thought it was pm.-dinnertime. Hope you go to bed early,and nap when they do !

I am humbled at your humility and grateful for your gratitude. Andy will be proud!

What an amazing coincidence! I won the Andy Carpenter reader award at the same ceremony. I understand they have posted the cheque. It is indeed an honour to share the platform with such a distinguished guest list. Mrs Carpenter (senior) said she always knew her son would be one of the most well known fictional people of East Orange and Newark.

I have read and love all of your Andy Carpenter series and just recently started reading some of your other books. I really enjoy them all.

I am love love love the Andy Carpenter series and Grover Gardener is an awesome narrator ๐Ÿ™Œ

Just found and finished Dog Eat Dog. It definitely met, and even exceeded expectations. Where I used to work that was hard to do. Reading another of your books kind of makes me greedy for the next one. So I'm glad you won this prestigious award and get lavish praise. It buffers those of us who say more..more..more.

You are living my ideal life! Dogs are the best people in the world! I only have one but know every dog in my neighborhood. Forget about their parents!๐Ÿ˜† If the answer to a fulfilling life is being needed then David and his wife will live forever! I look forward to an Andy Carpenter book like it is a child’s Christmas morning! Love love love the books! Write faster David!๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Merry Christmas!!!! We are on our way to Pensacola Beach and we are listening to Best in Snow.

Just finished Best in Snow. Can't tell who I love most -- Andy Carpenter, David Rosenfelt or Marcus.

What a wonderful life. So glad you enjoy the whole process.

You are welcome. Thank your fans. We LOVE you.

Your posts are the best. I know I don’t need to mention that your books are the best because you already know that ๐Ÿ˜‰. I’ve got several friends reading your books as well. I’m sure my referral check is in the mail. Hope you keep ‘em comin’.

You deserve it! So happy for you. Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘

I am reading "The Twelve Dogs of Christmas". Sondra suddenly became Sandra. I am available to proofread before a book goes to print. Typos in a book drive me crazy!

I just finished reading it. One of the best Andy Carpenter books.

I ordered this book and looking forward to delivery. I very much enjoyed, "Dog Eat Dog!" An excellent book!

Your books are always engaging and suspenseful and fun! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜†

You’re amazing. Don’t forget it...your readers enjoy the constant reminders.

You write snarky and I think it but never say out loud. I did a few times and it wasn’t well received. Love all your books.

Read all your books. Love them. Started Best in Snow this morning.

I hear that that is one of the most prestigious awards!

I always put off reading a new Andy Carpenter...I like to savor the anticipation...Always makes me laugh and feel good.

There are so many dog lovers and mystery readers that will love this series.

It’s in my Audible library. Saving to listen in a few weeks when driving from VA to SC.

I just finished this one! Loved it of course! My favorite one! ๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

You people are funny ๐Ÿ˜„ Same sense of humour. Guess that’s why we’re all fans. I’m about 2/3rds through my copy and loving it!!

I wish Andy Carpenter books would become a tv series. I have read everyone of them twice. They are my absolute favorite book series.

Your books have given me an escape from some pretty horrible things. Keep them coming! You’re awesome!

I’m awarding Best in Show to Best in Snow.

In my opinion you’ve been robbed repeatedly! I’m so happy “someone “ finally saw the light and created this award. Good luck!!

It's because they can't just have the same winner every single year- they're clearly waiting until you announce your retirement. Like how everyone thought lord of the rings movies would win every Oscar, but only the last one did.

Well I love your books so much! I’ve read the first 20. Some were so emotional at the ending , I would just burst into tears and when my husband asked me what was wrong I couldn’t tell him without crying. I’m pitiful.๐Ÿฅฒ

Exited to listen to your next adventure Andy!

And the winner is…………David Rosenfelt!


You've got my vote!

You get my vote.

I vote for David Rosenfelt.....

You have my vote!

You have my vote


You win in MY book!

I love your writing! First prize for great dog mysteries.

One hour to go until 10/19. So excited. Squee ๐Ÿ˜†

I would read the books just for the cute pictures on the covers.

I just ordered the book. Can't wait.

Of course, the winner will have four legs, a wet nose, and a tail.

'Best in Snow', soon to be an all-time Christmas classic, comes out next week. Yet I now see that they have decided not to schedule Christmas this year until late December. It's another example of the 'anti-brilliant- literature' cabal trying to undermine me. ... See MoreSee Less

Woo hoo, can't wait! I love the Andy Carpenter books, and love to listen to the audiobooks on road trips. Grover Gardner is the best.

Can't wait to read this one. I've read them all. There is no better pet than a loyal Golden.

thankful that I had the opportunity to read this on Net Galley. Another great book in the Andy Carpenter series.

Just finished this book - it’s excellent, naturally! Don’t stop writing David! I want more!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

How dare they! Send Marcus to talk to them.๐Ÿ˜

I am ready for some Andy and some furbabies!!

I am looking forward as usual to this next installment.

I pre ordered as soon as it was available to do so.

I love this series๐Ÿ’–

Pant, pant.......


Good morning maestro!๐ŸŽต

Often I am up throughout the night assisting my husband of 47 years as he struggles with the challenges of a serious illness. After he is settled, I reach for my latest David Rosenfelt book. Your stories make me laugh out loud and bring joy to my heart helping me get through some very tough times. I graduated from Paterson State College and over the course of our married life we were parents to 4 Golden Retrievers (Cider, Rosie,Luke and Rusty - the latter 3 being rescues). So your stories hit close to home. I just wanted you to know how VERY much I appreciate your style of writing and to let you know what a positive difference your books have made in my life…

Love, love, love your sense of humor. It makes your books so great! Merry Christmas on October 19.

For almost two years I have listened to your audiobooks back to back, including the K Team and your non-fiction. I felt a genuine loss when I ran out and I had to go pick somebody else’s book. I am too excited for the new release!

You bring us much needed humor.

I love your books soooo much! Read Silent Bite recently. It was great!

I hope you’re already working on the next book…. It’s sooo hard to wait!

I have loved all the Andy Carpenter books and I finally just read Dogtripping! I loved it too!

I got an advanced copy of the audiobook and it's as marvelously entertaining as I'd hoped. I now have my husband addicted to the ebooks and my son addicted to the audiobooks. My catahoula wants a tv series adaptation!

Great book. Was able to read an advance copy and gave it a 5 star review!

I'm glad Laurie's Christmas starts a little earlier this year, it's a hard slog waiting till Thanksgiving!

I love your books! Andy Carpenter is my favorite!

I love listening to your books on road trips! I worked in Patterson for a few years and enjoy hearing about it.

You are my favorite author… and Andy is my favorite lawyer, husband, family man and friend. Oh, and Marcus and Edna crack me up ๐Ÿ˜†

I love all your books! The audio ones are my favorite!

It will be Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ when I get this book!

Just finished Dog Eat Dog. Loved it. Thank you!

Holding my breath! Pre-ordered and hoping a midnight:01 release EDT!

I already preordered!!! Can not wait! Love your books.

Always a great story

You are a real piece of word David Rosenfelt , but I love you and your books anyway!

I had a chance to listen to the audio and I don’t mind saying, this is your best yet.

Oh boy...waging your own personal war on Christmas. It's almost as if you're inviting a bunch of free promotion of your book on Fox News.

I'm on the wait list at my library, number 10. Cannot wait!

Re-reading your books. Love them.

I thought it was the 23rd. Yay. 4 less days to wait!
