Publisher's Summary

At age 28 Eileen Riley had an enviably glamorous life; her globe-trotting career as a diplomat took her from the corridors of power at the White House to postings in Cameroon and Papua New Guinea and, finally, London - where she decided to give it all up to become a professional dog-sitter. But her diplomatic skills were to prove invaluable in her new career.

Secrets of a Pet Nanny is a fabulous and very funny collection of tales about the dogs she has looked after, from pedigree puppies to rare Tibetan terriers. Riley is a true dog devotee, but that does not prevent her casting a caustic eye across her charges - and their devoted owners. Part dog memoir, part outsider's perspective on the eternal relationship between dog-owners and their beloved canines, this is sure to appeal to animal lovers of all stripes.

Critic Reviews

"Even a dedicated dog lover will wonder what propels a successful careerist to give up her globe-trotting, corridors-of-power ways for a life among other people's animals." ( Publishers Weekly)
