Praise

“People and dogs have a simple, unwritten contract: The dog provides the devotion, love, companionship and work while we accept the responsibility of providing food, water, shelter, healthcare in life and death, and hopefully some love in return. Unfortunately, we as people often fall short. Dogs rarely do. Tracie Hotchner has written a book that will help us keep up our side of the bargain”

--Dr. Barry C. Browning, B.V.M. & S., M.R.C.V.S.

“I believe Ms. Hotchner was a dog in a previous life. Her perspective is that detailed and complete. Since I speak "dog" fluently and converse with my three canines, Lucy, Henry and the "diva" Frances, we have agreed that it is the finest book about dogs ever written”

–Jamie Lee Curtis

“My three dogs, Veronica, Lulu, and Max, are all barking, ‘Finally! The book we've all been waiting for‛ Everything you've ever wanted or needed to know about your dog is in here. Hooray”

–Joan Rivers

“Damn, wish I was your puppy..”

–Sophie B. Hawkins and Skeeter, Huck (mini-Dachshunds) & Virginia Wolff (black Lab)
