What Wendell Wants: Or, How to Tell If You're Obsessed with Your Dog


What Wendell Wants: Or, How to Tell If You're Obsessed with Your Dog Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jenny Lee covered her first year of marriage in the painfully real and funny book I Do. I Did. Now What?! Now it's time for her to write about the real love of her life: Wendell. Her dog.

*Do you talk about your dog non-stop?

*Do you suspect your dog is a genius?

*Do you name each of your dog's toys?

*Does your dog get more heavy petting than your spouse?

*Do all holidays revolve around your dog?

If any of these scenarios sound familiar, you probably have a healthy admiration for your dog. But if all of the scenarios in What Wendell Wants sound familiar, well, it's obvious that your appreciation of your pooch has truly crossed the line into true love--dysfunctional, sure, but who cares?!

Jenny Lee knows this obsession inside and out, and her advice is not to fight it: there's simply no cure. Instead, she offers hysterical accounts of her own experiences--from fretting over her dog's haircut to getting his portrait painted a la Picasso to trying desperately to impress the Bed & Biscuit dog kennel--to give all kindred dog-loving spirits out there some consolation that they're not alone.

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Jenny Lee was born in Tennessee and now lives in Cambridge, MA, with her (cute) husband and their (even cuter) dog, Wendell, a Wheaton Terrier. When she's not obsessing about her dog, she also writes for Animal Fair and Redbook.

From the Hardcover edition.
