When Judith Summers met George, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, it was love at first sight. George was seemingly the perfect puppy, brimming with love and joy. But it wasn't long before King George ruled the roost in Judith's home. Willful, possessive, and badly behaved, he refused to eat anything other than organic roast chicken and suffered from every allergy and illness under the sun. On top of that, George was accident-prone. But just as his naughtiness was boundless, so was his devotion to Judith and her young son. A foot-warmer on cold nights, a good listener, and a fierce (okat, not so fierce) protector, George was always by their side--and much of the time underfoot. My Life with George is a memorable and moving story of how, after one woman's tragic loss, an impossible but adorable dog named George changes her life.
Judith Summers is the author of four novels and two non-fiction books. She has written widely on the 18th century and the history of London, where she lives with her son.
"The sentiment is keen, the journey captivating and the pain heightened by the charming honesty of the writing."—Good Housekeeping
"Humorous and poignant, reminiscent of John Grogran's Marley & Me."—Library Journal (starred review)
