About The Book

How does the Master teach? Wilson the Pug, everyone’s favorite canine Taoist, is about to find out in this enchanting follow-up from the stars of The Tao of Pug.

Otto, the sage old pup who taught Wilson the ways of the Tao Te Ching, the ancient Chinese book of wisdom, is finally ready to rest his bones and retire to Boca Raton. Wilson is next in line to take his place as Master of the Taoist pug lineage, but before he can assume his rightful position, he must train his own successor, the young pup Homer. Once Homer has learned the lessons of the Tao and earned his yin-yang badge, Wilson can take his place on Otto’s throne.

Through funny letters and charming photographs, Wilson converses with his apprentice on the subtle wisdom of the Tao Te Ching. But unfortunately for Wilson, Homer’s not the easiest pupil to teach. He’s more interested in filling his stomach than feeding his mind and he’d rather nap his way to wisdom. The young pug’s path to enlightenment is chock full of surprises, as Wilson is about to find out.
