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.Read more ›

This is a kids' book, probably not suitable for most adults. Detailed sources would have been a big plus.Published 23 months ago by boh kinczyk
