I loved Jack's introduction to Larry: "The unexpected jumps at Jack, then zooms away. The four-footed black and white bullet races across the outfield, scatters dust through the infield, bumps into the backstop, and stands there panting. I laughed when I imagined myself being with Jack as we watched Larry "hurl himself against sweaty shoes and socks in ecstasy."
My favorite chapter was 'Frenzy.' I have felt just like Larry--particularly recently. It is comforting and perhaps humbling to know one has so much in common with a dog. My second favorite was 'Taking Care of Business.' I hope I am as well liked and resourceful as this bull terrier. I will often think about Larry teaching his team to trash talk in 'Dog Gone.' Consequently, the next time I read Ginsberg's 'Howl,' I will do so with an entirely new perspective. Being from Chicago, I even got the joke in the chapter "Goat' and the irony of 'Say it Ain't So.'
I am going to Cleveland in June to visit a friend. She is a grandmother and I plan to take this book with me so she can share it with her grandson.
More importantly, my husband is now legally blind (one of life's bad hoppers) from AMD and I often read things of interest to him. Tomorrow morning, I will read 'Jack and Larry' with our morning coffee.
