Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Charming and hilarious, It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is more than a mere celebration of mans best friend. In this lighthearted and reflective exploration of how and why dogs have served as some of our most valuable and enlightened teachers, well-known and well- loved actor/show host John O'Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) shares lessons learned from his life with canine companions, including: Every 15 Minutes Is a New Day; Never Miss a Nap; When One Person Stops Petting You, Move On; A Cold Can of Meat Is Still a Feast; and Youre Only as Big as You Think You Are, to name a few.

Dogs, after all, have pure hearts, trusting natures, a zest for living, noble characters, and an ability to take things in stride, writes O'Hurley in the books introduction. They can be counted on, and are pleasant companions. They know whats important, always. How many humans do you know about which you could say the same? At once poignantly moving and laugh-out-loud funny, It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is a book for the dog lover on everyones holiday shopping list.

Review:

"Although O'Hurley's love for dogs is genuine, the recollections of his youth are somewhat uninspiring, and there really isn't much new here." Library Journal

Synopsis:

The host of the enormously popular National Dog Show delivers a funny, profound book about the enduring wisdom of dogs.
