This is a really fun little paperback book, written by actor John O'Hurley, who also happens to be very funny and charming, even on paper. It's got adorable pics and stories, some of which are sweet and touching, while others had me laughing out loud. It even has some good bits of advice - for dogs AND the people they own. Definitely a fun read for anyone who loves dogs.
This book is so good and so funny that I have ordered three copies from PBS to give to friends. Each chapter is a different event in O'Hurley's life with his dogs so reading can start at any chapter that interests you. Not only is O'Hurley a great dancer, actor, and master of ceremonies, he is an engaging and funny author.
The stories involve dogs and what people can learn from them. Overall the stories are cute, true and do make you think a bit.
John O'hurley has a very nice reading voice.
Overall I can recommend this book
