Selected by Indie Booksellers for the September 2011 Indie Next List
“In this wonderful collection of short stories we celebrate life with our favorite shoe-eating, bed-stealing, impossible-to-train friends: dogs. Dog lovers who read this will find solace in knowing that there are others out there having experiences just like their own, both frustrating and funny. This is the perfect book to curl up with -- that is if your dog hasn't already taken your spot in the bed!”
-- Morgan Kiedrowski, Next Chapter Bookshop, Mequon, WI


Description

An anthology of bark-out-loud original essays about dogs from some of today's most popular writers.

Critically acclaimed memoirist Wade Rouse has gathered some of America's best known humorists- authors, comedians, and actors-to offer biting commentary on what it means to share a life, and a heart, with a dog. From battling for bed space to trying to transform a pampered NYC pup into a Texas rawhide, and from helping a shelter rescue navigate through her new life to interpreting dog run dynamics (and politics), being a canine companion has challenges as tough as any agility course, but laughter is just a tail-wag away. This collection features uncanny insight and witty prose from...

  • Jen Lancaster
  • Rita Mae Brown
  • Laurie Notaro
  • Jane Green
  • Beth Harbison
  • W. Bruce Cameron
  • and many others, including a Foreword by Chelsea Handler's dog, Chunk
