What makes this memoir stand out is the incredible honesty and openness, together with the excellent story-telling. Sexton brings you with her on her life's journey, through the joyful times and the rock bottom times. You come to know each dog so well -- and you mourn their illnesses and deaths as fully as you cheer them on in their mischievous puppyhoods and distinctive approaches to life.
To give you a taste of this beautiful book:
When Linda starts to date a great guy named Brad Clink, the real test is how Brad will receive her beloved dog Gulliver, who has helped her through deeply difficult times. This is one of the many moments in the book that hits home so gloriously:
"As Gulliver took off and began to bark -- his approach steady and fast as a fighter jet -- Brad dropped to one knee and opened his arms, welcoming the speedy bullet of a dog straight into his chest. Gulliver flew in on target, all elbow and knees, and began to lick Brad's face with ecstasy. Brad returned each kiss with a nuzzle of his own, thumping Gulliver happily on the ribs, calling him 'a good ole boy.' He'd kissed my dog before he'd even kissed me."
A wonderful book about the huge contributions dogs make to our lives, and the happiness possible in our coexistence.
I have had Dals that came from "backyard breeders" and championship kennels. The "show dog" people work very hard to screen potential adopters and will tell you about how much love and concern they have for their dogs. They measure their value by success in the ring and that just makes the dogs a commodity. The dogs that do well get the most love and attention. The others......Not so much.
This book is about a person who had many Dalmatians throughout her life and was not worthy of any of them. That sums up the book; Dals are great no matter how terrible you are.
