Conversations with My Dog
by Zig Ziglar
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.

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.

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.
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.
