Okay, so dog stories tend to have a tender place in my heart... Great, funny writing by Dean Koontz, with strong expressions of emotion, from excitement, fear and lots of joy.

Note, this book proves that a dogs memoir doesn't have to show the dog as a psychotic, misbehaving troublemaker to be a page-turner aka Marley & Me.

Quotes Steve Liked

Dean Koontz
“No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.”
