Cats have nine lives; dogs, sadly, have only one. This anthology of tongue-in-cheek obituaries is a loving tribute to the lives of more than 20 real dogs. Complete with photos, this witty collection captures each dog's unforgettable character. A true celebration of man's best friend, "A Dog's Life" is sure to delight any dog lover.

Whether it's Bilbo, the swaggering Scottish terrier grappling with height envy, Watson, the medicated bichon frise with his own Facebook page, Boris, the gentle but over-sexed Doberman, or any of the other dogs profiled in this collection, these vivid verbal portraits will have you laughing out loud and wiping away a tear or two.
