About the Book

The Dog Lover's Companion to New England has the inside scoop on the best parks, dog runs, beaches, restaurants and pet-friendly businesses throughout the six states that make up New England—Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Local authors, JoAnna Downey and Christian J. Lau, along with their trusty canine companions George and Inu, dish on such doggy delights as the Boston Common Dog Wash, New Hampshire's Walk for the Animals, and include information on pup-friendly movie and music nights, and off-leash areas. Packed with helpful maps, details on up-to-date leash laws, and a useful "paw" ranking system for all locations in the book, The Dog Lover’s Companion to New England is truly a pet’s best friend.
JoAnna Downey
About JoAnna Downey
JoAnna Downey's dog George is a "cannardly" (which means you can hardly tell what kind of dog he is), but people who insist on more limiting categories claim he must be a bearded collie, a Tibetan terrier, a puli, a Portuguese water dog–in other words, a cannardly. For the most part, George shuns these labels and just considers himself a member of the species Canis familiaris (commonly known as "dog"). While residing at Buddy Dog, an animal shelter, he picked JoAnna out of the multitudes, decided she looked like the perfect meal ticket, and hitched a ride home. When he's not out sniffing trails and conducting research for his newspaper column, George likes to chase squirrels and bark at weird people.

JoAnna and her co-author Chris Lau have been friends ever since George and Inu introduced them in the Common over 10 years ago. In addition to The Dog Lover's Companion to Boston, they are also the authors of The Dog Lover's Companion to New England and The Dog Lover's Companion to New York City. When not exploring New England with the dogs or disagreeing about the demise of baseball and whether or not the Red Sox will ever win a World Series, JoAnna is a freelance writer and contributing editor to Dog World Magazine.
Christian J. Lau
About Christian J. Lau
Chris Lau's dog Inu is proud of his heritage and carries his golden retriever lineage with style. Although an enormously social animal, Inu loves the solitude of the Great Outdoors—a taste he developed while living in the Berkshires for the first three years of his life. Then, needing a home and deciding city life would provide the attention he so dearly loves, he traveled to Boston and adopted Chris Lau. Although Inu loves calling the streets of Beacon Hill his own, he still heeds the call of the wild and is ready to travel at a moment's notice. When not out swimming or riding the surf, Inu can be found in the Boston Common working the crowd, looking for free pats, food, and adulation.

Chris and his co-author Joanna Downey have been friends ever since George and Inu introduced them in the Common over 10 years ago. In addition to The Dog Lover's Companion to Boston, they are also the authors of The Dog Lover's Companion to New England and The Dog Lover's Companion to New York City, all published by Avalon Travel Publishing. When not exploring New England with the dogs or disagreeing about the demise of baseball and whether or not the Red Sox will ever win a World Series, Chris works as a systems analyst and full-time dad to five-year-old Connor.
