|"Sharply observed, beautifully written" (Claire Cook), a delicious summer read for any dog lover|
From the Publisher:
Presents an amusing and poignant story about an eight-year relationship between an abandoned dog and his free-spirited owner, the special times they shared, and the incredible bond that developed between them from the moment she brought him home. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
In a city park, a woman meets an abandoned, amber-eyed boxer who follows her home. They spend a honeymoon year discovering each other’s idiosyncrasies (morning dog or evening dog?). Then life settles into routine, and the freewheeling woman realizes that she and her bilingual comedian of a dog are “happily stuck with each other,” for better or worse. In this witty, tender memoir, Louise Bernikow charts a love story across eight years, as she and Libro take Manhattan by storm. They revel in the perks of the media spotlight; spend a hilarious summer in the Hamptons; and volunteer for pet therapy after 9/11, where Libro gets treats and Louise gets kicked out for poor behavior. With wisecracking waggishness, this story about an urban dreamboat who rescues the woman who rescued him “will touch the heart” (BOOKLIST).
