I am 33 years old and have read FBOFW since day one. When Farley joined the family, I was afraid that they wouldn't keep him. But every day he became more a part of the family than the day before. The days that featured Farley were the best. The day they couldn't revive him after he saved April was horrible. I am a grown man with a family of my own and I cried over the loss of this fictional dog. Even looking back now, I get teary eyed. I was so thankful when Lynn put this book out. If you only buy one FBOFW book, make it this one. You will still be able to watch the family grow, and you will become very fond of this very important part of the Patterson family. Farley was indeed a special friend and this book remembers him well.

Lynn Johnston and her cartoon For Better or Worse is not really well known in Australia, so it was with a degree of apprehension that I decided to buy this book to see what her cartoons were like.
One of the best book purchases I've made as I soon went on to buy as many of her books as I can. Quite simply she has great drawing skills as unlike many other cartoonists objects she draws such as houses, cars, kitchens, people etc. look realistic.
Unlike other cartoons people and animals also 'age' in her cartoon strips. So you'll see the life of Farley from a young pup to his ultimate demise. Along the way you'll see not only Farley grow and change but also the Patterson family.
Her humour is often subtle so it might be suited to those who get a quiet chuckle out of the ordinary everyday things in life that happen. If you are after something along the lines of Gary Larson then this one might not be for you.
I would highly recommend this as a great selection for anyone wanting to see what Lynn Johnstons cartoons are like or to anyone who has ever loved and lost a loyal freind. You might find that Farley's antics were quite similar in some respects to those of your own dog.

This book is a must have for anybody who has ever shared a life with that special dog, and then suffered their loss. Not only will you remember all the little things that you thought you had forgotten,but this collection will allow you to laugh again.
It is also a book that any fan of Lynn Johnston's simply has to have in their collection. Farley was, and still is, such an important part of this family. It is fitting that this collection of strips was assembled as a final tribute to the dog that changed the family forever.

This is a compilation of some of the strips from the cartoon that deal with Farley. If you have ever owned a dog there will be at least three or four, at a minimum, of the strips where you think she must have been secretly in your house/apartment and seen me and my pet together. You will laugh out loud at many of the slices of life when dealing with Farley and be prepared to shed a tear or three at some point in the book. This was a joy to read and one that i refer back to from time to time, especially when my Brittany starts to go a little crazy or goes to sleep with her legs in the air.

This was one of those books that you can read over and over. I made the mistake one day of taking this book to work with me to read while I ate my lunch. At some points I was laughing so hard people started to give me strange looks. It also made me cry. You don't have to own a pet to appreciate this book. (But it helps.) I have been following Lynn's strip for the past year and I am gradually buying each and every one of her books.
I highly recommend this book!

You laugh you cry, you laugh some more and you see your dog in Farley in everything he does. Then you dry when the family looses their beloved dog. Makes you pull your dog into your lap and just snuggle him and fell blessed for the time you still have with him.

One of my all time favorite cartoons, so loved it when Mrs. Johnston broke out the characters into specific books. If you have ever owned a dog, you'll relate to several of the story lines with smiles, laughter and poignant moments. A Keeper!
