Actor Vincent Price won acclaim for his performances as a menacing villain in dozens of macabre horror films, such as House of Wax. Less well known, though, is Price's lifelong love of animals, especially his 14-year-old mutt, Joe. From his wife's passion for poodles to film set encounters with all types of creatures, including goats, apes, and camels, Price's life was full of furry, four-legged friends. But it was Joe who truly captured his heart. Intelligent, courageous, and devoted to his owner, Joe was a special dog with a personality all his own.
This touching and light-hearted memoir includes a new introduction by Bill Hader and a preface by Vincent Price's daughter, Victoria.

I definitely would! What a fun story about someone who is such a huge public figure sharing his life with a dog. I really enjoyed that Vincent's daughter was the narrator. It made the story more enjoyable.
I really laughed at how Joe would go out and about in the neighborhood and he would be gone for so long that another family thought he was a stray and they decided he would be theirs and gave him a name, until Vincent found him and told that family who he really was! Funny!
This is the first I have listed to by her.
I was fine either way.
What a nice treat to read an autobiography of a celebrity that is not all about the human, but more about the pet.
