Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a single woman living in the city, Louise Bernikow relished her independence. Then a brown boxer with amber eyes unexpectedly came into her life and taught her a few lessons about love and companionship.

At first, they're not the perfect match. She's never had a pet and knows nothing about dogs. He's got a gimpy leg and a mysterious past. They first meet in the park: he, hunched down in the backseat of a police car; she, jogging and minding her own business. But when she sees a crowd around the police car, she stops and sees a scrawny dog with big eyes gazing up at her. He needs a home, she's told. Never mind that she lives in a small fourth-floor walk-up apartment. Never mind that she's been told she's allergic to all animals. She takes him in.

With wit and heart, Bernikow chronicles their first bumpy year together--in which both dog and woman become part of the neighborhood's eccentric community of dog people. And she discovers, just as her sister-in-law predicts, that a dog is a good way to meet people (that is, men). But in the end, she realizes that she's already met Mr. Right. BARK IF YOU LOVE ME is the uproariously funny and moving story of a woman, a dog, and how they manage to find their way into each other's hearts.

Synopsis:

With wit and heart, Bernikow chronicles the first year she and a brown Boxer spends together, in which both dog and woman became part of the neighborhood's eccentric community of dog people.

Synopsis:

As a single woman living in the city, Louse Bernikow has always been independent. But when a little brown boxer with big amber eyes moves in with her, she learns a few lessons about love and companionship.

At first, they're not the perfect match. She's never had a pet and knows nothing about dogs. He's got a gimpy leg and a mysterious past. Then one sunny day, the woman and the abandoned boxer meet and something inexplicable happens. And Louise does what her mother always warned her not to do: she invites the strange male home. Never mind that her apartment is small. Never mind that she's highly allergic. She takes him in anyway.

Bark If You Love Me is the funny and moving story about this odd couple and how they change each other's lives. Libro, as she comes to call him, introduces her to the curious world of dog runs and to life as a media hound. When they meet a handsome man and his equally handsome dachshund, life takes an unexpected turn for both of them. And Libro's past is revealed.

Populated with wonderful characters - both canine and human - Bark If You Love Me is a true story about how love works in mysterious ways and is proof that sometimes a dog really is a woman's best friend.
