Publisher's Summary

When Nancy Balbirer learns her beloved eleven-year-old beagle has kidney failure, she’s devastated. She and her husband had gotten Ira as a puppy - a wedding gift to each other, and their first foray into “parenthood.” Now, her dog is terminal, her marriage is on life support, and Nancy is desperate to save them both (whether they want it or not). In a single year, she loses her two best friends, but Nancy’s life is about to take yet another unexpected turn. 

With humor and heart, Nancy Balbirer shares her story of relationships, loss, and canine friendship in this illuminating memoir about the lengths people will go to keep love alive...and the power of finally letting go.

Love a good memoir

I enjoyed this audiobook. I could definitely relate to a lot. There were just a few times I struggled getting through a few pages, but I think it was only because some of the chapters were too long for me. I like to start and stop with a chapter, so when a chapter is too long, I start to drift. And although I'm not a prude or angel, I felt there was overkill on the "f" word. The occasional emphasis, in this day, is understandable, but way too many. Other than that, the book was entertaining and worth the money.
