A Dog Year : Twelve Months, Four Dogs, and Me
A Dog Year Twelve Months Four Dogs and Me
Author: Jon Katz
Sometimes, change comes on four legs. — In his popular and widely praised Running to the Mountain, Jon Katz wrote of the strength and support he found in the massive forms of his two yellow Labrador retrievers, Julius and Stanley.

This is the first of a handful of books about Jon Katz and his dogs. As always, the author's love of his dogs comes through on every page. I have to stop reading his books while at work though because they always bring tears to my eyes, as Katz never shies away from the sad parts of dog ownership. This quick read is highly recommended for any dog lover.

This is the first Jon Katz book I have read. The book is a true story about how he came to have his four dogs and his relationship with them. The first two are yellow labs and the other two are border collies, completely different from his calm labs. He tells some funny stories, especially about his one childhood dog who stole the roast off the table, but it is mostly a serious book about learning to live with border collies.

A dog lover can appreciate this book. The author had gotten a completely out of control border collie and some of the things it did was really off the wall. However, during a year things had changed, for the better. The author and the dogs he had changed his outlook on a lot of things. They learned from each other. A good book.

Quick and easy read. Good insight into the life and love of this man with his dogs. Love and loss and the cycle of life.

I absolutely loved this book. The previous book "Running to the Mountain" was primarily about the author and how his two labs helped him get through a tough time in his life. This book is purely about how HE adjusted to the new dog(s) and how different their needs were than his labs. (Spoiler Alert) I did cry in a couple of places when his labs grew old and feeble - but the rest of the book kept a smile on my face. I can hardly wait to read the next book.

This book was sad, funny and an excellent read. This has been a good change of pace for me. Katz has a great way of writing that draws you in. His winning of Devon/Orson is a pleasure to read, adding Homer was a great move. This book should be read after Running to the Mountain and before A Good Dog, but if not you can put the pieces together without any problem. Good reads, all.
