This book is actually more of an essay, with lots of photographs of dogs (many by famous dog photographer Amanda Jones.) I read it in less than an hour. The author briefly details the life and ultimate passing of her lab Beau. Though a short read (almost a Readers Digest Condensed version of Marley and Me), the pictures and loving reflections on dogs make this book hard for any dog lover to not enjoy.

This was a beautifully yet simply written book about the life, death, and lessons learned from Anna Quindlen's dog, Beau. Each page features a photograph of someone else's beloved pet(s). If you are a dog lover then it will gently pull at your heartstrings but leave you with the feeling that we have much to learn from our canine companions. It was a very quick read yet thoroughly enjoyable.

I didn't like this book as much as I expected to, as a dog lover. This book chronicles the life and death of Beau, her laborador retriever of 14 years. As a lab owner, I can identify with some of the childish antics of Beau, like when they got a second dog, Beau's response was one they had seen in parenting, not dog raising. Beau pushed the dog out of the way, and he clearly wondered why they got another dog, as if his owners had lost their minds. The anecdotes of dog life were more like a series of essays, which is how the book originally appeared. I found it a bit trite and cliched, but worth reading.

Lots of pictures of dogs, short read with the predictable Newsweek-ish pablum. Of which I read every word.

Good Dog Stay is an absolutely marvelous story of love and family committment. Anna Quinlen shares my philosophy of knowing that dogs become an integral part of a family and have MUCH to teach us! Perhaps if we watched and listened to wildlife and dogs, our world would be a happier place. Unconditional love....

This book did not impress me. There are other books about dogs which is better. I like Anna Quidlen books I like better. The pictures of dogs were okay. It was a column expanded that was not very good. You would better off reading Marley and Me or Merle's Door.
