"Dog lovers who read this will find solace in knowing that there are others out there having experiences just like their own, both frustrating and funny. This is the perfect book to curl up with, that is if your dog hasn't already taken your spot in the bed!"- Morgan Kiedrowski, Next Chapter Bookshop, Mequon,WI
"Dogs are indeed, our best friends. This book celebrates the special -- and often hilarious --bonds that develope between us. It will make you laugh, and touch your heart."
Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO, The Humane Society of the United States
With a "Paw Foreword" by Chelsea Handler's dog, the anthology includes writings by Jen Lancaster, Alec Mapa, Rita Mae Brown, Bob Smith, Laurie Notaro, Jane Green, W. Bruce Cameron and others. A great holiday gift for pet lovers, which I give five full stars out of five.

It is only Aug. but this is a great idea for a stocking stuffer for the upcoming holidays. It is so logical that Rouse was chosen to edit this book and if you have ever read him you know that he also has a wonderful sense of humor. You can't help but smile as you read.

The very funny Wade Rouse has gotten together a group of twenty fellow authors, comedians and humorists, about half of them gay or lesbian, and gotten them to talk about their relationship with their canine companions, current or past. The result is this clever, amusing and occasionally poignant anthology, showing just how otherwise-logical, responsible people can approach insanity in dealing with their dogs, most of them shelter rescues. We learning that "training" is a two-way street, worry about our pups being accepted by their peers at doggie daycare, compromise on sleeping arrangements, and - for a partner who isn't crazy about the dog - make it clear that an "It's me or the dog!"-ultimatum would likely result in a response he wouldn't like.
With a "Paw Foreword" by Chelsea Handler's dog, the anthology includes writings by Jen Lancaster, Alec Mapa, Rita Mae Brown, Bob Smith, Laurie Notaro, Jane Green, W. Bruce Cameron and others, as well as Rouse. Rouse is also donating 10% of the royalties from the book to The Humane Society of the United States. A great holiday gift for pet lovers, which I give five full stars out of five.

This is a collection of 21 stories from dog owners about their life with their dogs. There was a foreword by Chelsea Handler's dog, Chunk, and the authors included Jen Lancaster, Rita Mae Brown, Laurie Notaro, Jane Green, Beth Harbison and W. Bruce Cameron (there is a bio on each at the end of the book).
Some of the stories were funny and entertaining ... some not so much (I wasn't enjoying their writing style).
All in all, it was a fun read.
HIS LOVE FOR HIS DOGS COMES THROUGH SO PROFOUNDLY, I HAD TO WIPE TEARS MORE THAN ONCE.
I LOVED THE BEGINNING OF THE BOOK, BUT IT DID WEAR ON A BIT THIN AS IT WENT ON.
I DO ENJOY WADE'S STYLE OF WRITING. VERY TALENTED. WILL CONTINUE TO READ HIS WORK.
As for this book, it is a sometimes great read for those of us who have had a dog or two in our lives. I say sometimes because, like all books by multiple authors, you may find some of the stories funny and interesting, but you will also find others that don't speak to you in the least, like the Rita Mae Brown story of Idler, who "came to me in 1994 from the late Mrs. Paul Summers, Jr., MFH, of Farmington Hunt Club..." I'm not a big one on hunting dogs of any kind, or the way that they are kenneled and used. But that's just me.
I did relate to Jane Green's Doberman story, the 120 pounder who could get any piece of food from any height, and who easily intimidated "sketchy-looking men in hoodies." My last lab-mix, at 130 pounds, put many an "iffy" guy on the other side of the street for me, and could eat an entire box of doughnuts from atop the kitchen cabinet and close the lid when finished, so that when you came home you opened to an empty box!
Every dog owner, or former owner, has at least one story to tell. It's a bit like being a parent and bragging to the other parents. This is what I'm not the biggest bitch... is doing, telling dog stories to other dog people; it probably won't be appreciated by cat or bird or no pet people. Woven into some of the dog stories are humorous and realistic stories of gay couples that you don't expect in a book about dogs. An overall enjoyable and quick read that will make you smile.
