"Poet Patricia Furstenberg has caught theinquisitive nature of dogs perfectly. She writes poems which capture their flare for getting into trouble and the way they shower us withunquestioning love." - Books Are My Cwtches
"This book is lighthearted and a delight.... Some beautiful Haiku at the end of the book will make you settle down with a loving sigh......" - Review This Reviews
"This is a charming collection of 'doggy'verse with an extensive range of other animals and nature included, aswell as some delightful haiku at the end... the content is excellent and Patricia Furstenberg has put together a clever collection" - Julia Thum

From the Author

"Whenever I see a dog watching something, that absorbed look in his eyes, ears pricked, muzzle quivering - either out on the window or at a birdperched on a branch - I ask myself: what goes through my darlingdog'smind? Is he waiting for someone? Surely dogs have an internal bodyclock; if you had a pet, you've definitely noticed how perceptivedogs are towards their environment and especially towards us, their, um,pack members.

"Still, what exactly goes through a dog's mind?What kind of questions do they ask themselves? How do dogs understandlife? When they look at a snail, for example, besides its scent, whatelse do they take in? And how does a dog feel when... a cat is suddenlyintroduced to the family?

"These questions stood behind the poems and haiku from As Good as Gold - as engaging as a tail wag."
