Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed memoirist Wade Rouse has gathered some of America's best known humorists - authors, comedians, and actors - to offer biting commentary on what it means to share a life, and a heart, with a dog. From battling for bed space to trying to transform a pampered NYC pup into a Texas rawhide, and from helping a shelter rescue navigate through her new life to interpreting dog-run dynamics (and politics), being a canine companion has challenges as tough as any agility course. But laughter is just a tail-wag away.

This collection features uncanny insight and witty prose from:

  • Jen Lancaster
  • Rita Mae Brown
  • Laurie Notaro
  • Jane Green
  • Beth Harbison
  • W. Bruce Cameron
  • And many others, including a foreword by Chelsea Handler's dog, Chunk

Mildly entertaining

These stories were enjoyable enough but the narrative voices were too stylized for me. I would have preferred more natural reading voices. They sounded like commercial vocal actors and it was highly annoying, but then I dislike 'announcer' type vocals.

The stories themselves were mostly very good, with only a couple mediocre ones, but still, anyone who loves dogs or is perhaps even thinking of getting a dog would enjoy this book overall.
