For weeks now, I’ve been carrying Walking With Zeke, by Chris Clarke, around with me. I’ve squeezed this book into my purse and taken it across the country by plane, its pages rifled through by security at LAX. It has endured my tears, my fingers pinching and dog-earing its pages in wonder, my constant, hungry scribbling in the margins.

Mmmmmm...Chris Clarke's writing is SO good. I'm reading this over breakfast (probably due to the number of other books I'm supposed to be reading for school and such) and it's a treat. I wish I could write like this. :)

Funny, touching, joyful, sad - captures all of what you go through when you discover that a dog owns a piece of your heart. Chris's writing is beautiful, and his observations of Bay Area flora and fauna can take me back there in an instant. A special book.

This book has finally convinced me that I am NOT a pet person. 200 pages of taking about your pet dog dying. Sorry, not for me.....
