If you ever loved a dog, and talked to it, and wondered what all the whines meant, and what on earth they were doing, here's a highly entertaining book, especially from someone who always watched her own dog's reaction every time a new guy came into her life.
I recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Her characters are well developed... each one showing their quirky imperfections at just the right moment.
The dogs are fabulous. I can't even count the number of times I caught myself thinking that my own dog would absolutely say some gof the things Markoe wrote about if she could only talk. Fortunately, my dog cannot talk, which made reading about a woman who converses with her dog that much more entertaining.
I highly recommend this book, and fully intend to run out and buy another of Markoe's works as soon as possible.
I worked at a bookstore for 3 years, and was asked for referrals of good reads daily. This was one of my top referrals after I'd read it. If you want plain enjoyment, read this. My hat is off to the author, and I can't wait to read more books written by her!
I ended up having to special order it from my local bookstore, but it was definately worth the wait. Got it just in time for a Holiday road trip.
It's a fast read, but very entertaining. You will most definately laugh out loud at this one. The dogs are hillarious. I love the how they talk like us, where in most books it's usually very preschoolish language, these dogs have a fabulous vocabulary making it all the more entertaining.
I will warn you, there's a lot of cursing so if you're not a fan of that kind of language keep that in mind.
I love Dawn's crazy family and her tragic romances.
If you're a fan of dogs or animals in general you most definately have to get this book!
That stung, Amazon.
Alas, it was a very funny book and Merrill Markoe is a comic genius. Great read.

I LOVE this book so much that I've spent the last 4 years looking for a second copy after losing the first one. Any woman who has been owned by a dog will relate. Read morePublished 1 month ago by M.H.P.
It was an easy, entertaining read but it by no means is a capture-you-right-away kind of book. If you have never had a pet, you probably won't like it.Published 10 months ago by Jay He
