I truly loved this book. As I lent it to others, all have the same comment. It is their story, their experience. They remember the total joy, love, frustration, and sometimes anger that comes with new dog ownership, especially a special dog that is rescued. And despite it all, the book confirms that we will do it over and over again. It gives hope and inspiration to those going through their first year. And it provides a rememberance to those who survived that time. It is a must read for all dog owners and lovers everywhere.

I bought this book for my 13 year old daughter who loves dogs. She said it was wonderful so I began reading it myself. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was easy to read in bits and snatches while waiting to pick up kids etc. I just love the look on Devon's face on the cover photo--of course Jon had to keep him!

I first heard about this book on a TV show and I am thrilled that it stuck in my head. Jon paints the picture of his emotions and perceptions in your mind so well, you almost feel you are part of his life. I was extremely pleased with this book and gave it to the rest of my family to read.

A Dog Year is a charming book that I laughed and cried through. For those of us who have learned that dogs/pets help us understand what's important in life and how to live it, this book is for you! I'm a bit of a slow reader, but I read this one particularly slow because I didn't ant it to end.

I, of course, loved the dogs. Found the stories about the border collie delightful because I could relate to them. However, I found some of his thoughts on training and behavior modification a bit naive.

It's so nice to be able to read and connect with other people that care and feel about dogs and other animals as I do. When you have pets it isn't always a bed of roses with them, they definitely have their own personalities, and it is refreshing to read of another person's ups and downs with their beloved pets!

A Dog Year continues the story of Jon Katz's admirable adventures as he re-discovers himself and embraces change in order to 'keep the hinges oiled' as he enters middle age. I find that I can totally relate to where he is mentally, physically and pschologically as I am there, too. I've read five of Katz's non-fiction books and have come to feel as though I know him and would like to have him as a friend. This is not a 'seat of your pants' adventure book. It is the story of an individual totally and honestly exposing his life and weaknesses to readers. Katz exhibits great humor about life, and about himself. Great 'quotables' in this, as in all of Katz's, book.
