This is an utterly delicious book about dogs and our relationship with them. I had so many "oh yes!" moments while reading it, and at various times both laughed out loud, and cried.
Beautifully written, by someone who really loves both dogs and their people.

A great writer can write on any subject. Mike White has a brilliant turn of phrase, a kind heart and inquiring mind. That's all on display here as he talks about the joy and heartbreak of being a dog owner.

I loved this gorgeous book which is basically a collection of vignettes about dogs and their people. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me feel like I understand my dog a little bit better. It has also inspired me to check out our local sheep dog trials in March! Can't wait!!!
