Most people talk to their dogs (some people talk to their plants!), but Zig Ziglar has engaged in lively conversations and even the occasional debate with his Welsh Corgi dog, Taffy.

When Dirty Dog (Zig’s affectionate nickname for Taffy) walked into the Ziglar family household on his short, stubby legs in early 1995, he walked straight into Zig’s unsuspecting heart. Convers

in my opinion this book has the wrong title and concept.....from reading the title, i got psyched up for a nice warming story about a dog and his/her owner....there is no "doginess" in this book at all....perhaps the title should've been something like: "The venting of Ziglar" or "The Zig Zag in Zig's Mind"

You probably know that I will snatch up any book about dogs, relating to dogs, or ahem as a dog trainer as a main character, but this book sucks. I am listening to it on CD read by the author in my car and am afraid of what I may do to myself. I may fall asleep at the wheel or drive into a tree trunk on purpose. Zigler has such a drawl that I can barely listen to him, the fact that he is not saying anything worth listening to. He tells us what his dog says to him, but it is just plain ridiculous ...more

I listened to this story on audio while driving to and from work. It got my attention because it is about conversations that the owner has with his dog which is a Welsh Corgi. I have a Welsh Corgi - totally sweet dog. But the author takes the part of both the narrator and the dog's part - and there are a lot of good quality life lessons. "Dad" called his dog "Dirty Dog" although the dog's real name was "Laughy Taffy". Dad had a nickname for all his children and his wife (Redhead) - so now just t ...more

As Charles Barkley would say, turrible.

about his 'dirty dog' and stories of life, relationships and forgiveness as a means of unharnessing self. Also, The autobiography of Zig; To achieve help someone else achieve, life is a teacher failure merely an occurrence, growing vs swelling (poor listener), a neurotic early career and curious to note how products were marketed and sold prior to stores like Walmart, jcpenny and others.
Ginger
Mr. Ziglar wrote this as if he were carrying on a conversation with his family dog. He used the so called conversations to exemplify life lessons. Even though it seems quirky, it is a good way to capture an audience of dog lovers. As the book ends, he also enlightens us to the dying of "DirtyDog." He then uses this time to verbalized what a pet can truly mean to someone.
Tara
Delightful, meaningful, fun. Perfect combo. Listen to the audiobook read by the author for an extra dose of good times.
David
A humorous and creative collection of stories. Ziglar does an amazing job sharing principles for relating with people.
Nancy
Are dogs like people, or people like dogs? This was an escape with a tilt toward self-reflection.
Clark
Zig is someone that should be listen to instead of read. This book goes over his other books.
Shirley
Very entertaining and some good thought to live by.
Susan
