DOG DAYS OF SUMMER: I'm Not the Biggest Bitch in This Relationship edited by Wade Rouse

Description

An anthology of bark-out-loud original essays about dogs from some of today's most popular writers.
Critically acclaimed memoirist Wade Rouse has gathered some of America's best known humorists- authors, comedians, and actors-to offer biting commentary on what it means to share a life, and a heart, with a dog. From battling for bed space to trying to transform a pampered NYC pup into a Texas rawhide, and from helping a shelter rescue navigate through her new life to interpreting dog run dynamics (and politics), being a canine companion has challenges as tough as any agility course, but laughter is just a tail-wag away. This collection features uncanny insight and witty prose from...

From the Author

My life has been defined by dogs. I've had six dogs in my life, and each one was different from the other as brother is from sister. But all had a few
things in common. They were all rescue dogs who loved me unconditionally,
and taught me to love without limit."


--WADE ROUSE
