    Cute short book Very heartwarming There s a poem at the end that honestly had me tearing up in work because I think a lot of people can relate to the unconditional love you have for your dog.

    An utterly charming and moving memoir written by a Princeton professor about the dogs who changed his life A pregnant dog appears in the back yard of a house George Pritchard shares with his partner, Ed, and takes up residence beneath the tool shed At first, the men are at odds as to what to do about this, as their lives seem to have no room for the care and feeding of dogs However, the dog gives birth to seven puppies, and being good men, they begin to feed the mother , and to worry about he An utterly charming and moving memoir written by a Princeton professor about the dogs who changed his life A pregnant dog appears in the back yard of a house George Pritchard shares with his partner, Ed, and takes up residence beneath the tool shed At first, the men are at odds as to what to do about this, as their lives seem to have no room for the care and feeding of dogs However, the dog gives birth to seven puppies, and being good men, they begin to feed the mother , and to worry about her and her pups, and as will come as a surprise to no one who s been tamed by a dog to fall in love George has been seeing a therapist for years, in an effort to understand why he cannot comfortably receive and give affection He does, however, reminisce about dogs of his youth, and feels a strong pull toward this stoic, frightened animal With infinite patience, he and to a lessor extent Ed, being the slow work of winning the dog s trust and acceptance She is named Lupa Ed is at first reluctant, not being a dog person, but soon warms to her, and to the pups They decide to find homes for six of the pups, but will keep one, who is named Remus And so begins the journey of healing, for everyone It s a quiet, delightful piece of writing The bonds of love the four develop are moving, inspiring and so strong the men take the dogs with them everywhere, including to France via the Queen Mary II Since the great fault of dogs is that their lives are so short, the ending cannot be other than it is, and some of the most moving passages come at the end of Lupa s life, when George describes how Lupa forced me to look death squarely in the face, to acknowledge its reality She taught me how to be a person in her dying, how to comfort her She made vivid for the me the plain truths that death is the natural rounding out of a life, that it can even be a desired conclusion She taught me not to resent a beloved person for dying but rather to cherish her all theShe taught me how to say farewell And she taught me, at last, how to grieve By then, he hasn t needed a therapist in a long time Such are the fur clothed miracles of love we call dogs Highly recommended

    I loved how focused on the dogs this story was, and how simple it was It s a story of animal ownership anyone who has ever had a special pet can relate to There are some beautiful accompany sketches and photos as well A nice story for dog lovers, if not a bit short Sad though, tearjerker warning.
