The swell of dog love that met Cindy Adams everywhere she went after the publication of The Gift of Jazzy made it clear that Jazzy's fans were primed for the next installment. And since, in Cindy's own words, "Yorkies are like peanuts. You can't stop at just one," her decision to bring Juicy into the family gave her ample ammo to do just that. But it wasn't long until her

Fluffy and light as a Yorkie this is a follow up to her first and superior book about her pets. It's a book I turned to when there was absolutely no mental energy left in me.

I actually finished this book and i don't know why. I love dogs and I love books about dogs. I do not like books that make you think will be about dogs and all they are, are a bunch of name dropping and whining. I got the feeling she wrote the book just to let us know how important she is with all her name dropping. When she did talk about her dogs, she is exactly the kind of dog owner I hate. Her dogs aren't housebroken, poor mannered, neurotic. Just because they're small that's no excuse for p ...more

There was a significant difference in reading this book than other canine memoirs in that most, if not all, of the other books I've read were written by ordinary or slightly famous authors, like John Grogan of 'Marley and Me' before that book became a bestseller. 'Living a Dog's Life' however, is by socialite Cindy Adams, not someone I'm familiar with, but she make sure to emphasize her dogs' lives of luxury at every opportunity. That said, I didn't find the book too pompous or haughty for my ta ...more

Super light read, but that's to be expected considering this was written by a famous NY Post gossip columnist. Most of the book was charming. I love Cindy's love of her doggies; to me, my dog is the most amazing friend I will ever have so I totally relate to her quirky over-the-top love of her furry friends. It took me the first 20 pages or so to get into this true story, which quickly became very sad. I was happy to see the sadness was short-lived; it was overall a happy, fun book. My only qual ...more
No matter how hard I try to teach my mom that I do not read book with twirly, gold-covered letters and cute drawing on the cover, she keeps on giving them to me. "Women-books". Shopping-literature. Cutsy stories of midlfe crisis women on the way to find true love and a new hand bag.


At least this one had dogs and was rather entertaining and, well, even a bit cynical. Or maybe that was just me.
Being a dog lover, and I love to read, I actually gave up on this book. I found it pathetic that her dogs had so many issues because of her poor dog ownership, they do not need babysitters, and medication, I just couldn't get through it, and I have maybe given up on 4 books ever.
It was very cute - totally funny and if you're a dog lover you'll totally relate :)
