Publisher's Summary

Living with three strong-willed, highly individual Dachshunds can be equal parts entertaining, frustrating and rewarding. Just ask Matt Ziselman.

Armed with a fresh, creative voice that is unabashedly cranky one moment and profoundly poignant the next, Ziselman mixes hilarious canine stories, with heartfelt reminiscences from his own life, the results of which is a memoir of illuminating life lessons, courtesy of the three thoroughly Teutonic Dachshunds that he shares his life (and couch) with: Baxter, Maya, and Molly.

Seemingly mundane moments, like Baxter's incessant, neuroses-inducing staring, Maya's inexplicable refusal to walk through the front door, and Molly's obsessive compulsive love for a torn and tattered blanket become, through Ziselman's insightful eyes, a treasure trove of observations that any dog-lover will appreciate. In a market where Americans spend more than $40 billion a year on their pets, this work of razor-sharp wit and quiet tenderness will reach out and grab listeners everywhere by the heartstrings and - quite possibly - their leashes.

Hounded wraps universal insights in hot-dog-shaped packages, providing true dog lovers with many knowing nods, honest belly laughs and an accurate, warts-and-all reflection of the fascination, wonder, and love that they have for their dogs. And that Matt Ziselman obviously has for his.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Great read/listen!"
    Where does Hounded: The Lowdown on Life from Three Dachshunds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can't rank them, but this was a lovely, cosy listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It seemed a very honest autobiography of a man who had still not come to terms with the premature deaths of his parents, his obsessive, and at times depressive, personality and his love of his family, both human and hound.


    What does Brian Troxell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Excellent narration.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. It isn't really a book about dogs though, as the cover and the blurb imply. The dogs feature large. They are a central part, but it is a rather nice autobiography - sometimes sad, sometimes interesting, often funny.
