In this sequel to the San Francisco Chroniclebest seller Bark If You Love Me(2000), which was received so positively by city-dwelling dog lovers, street-smart, professional Bernikow adopts a stray boxer she finds in Manhattan's Central Park. The unlikely pair seem made for each other, though Bernikow admits that Libro has probably had a better influence on her than vice versa (hence the book's subtitle). Readers will enjoy the continued antics of Libro as media hound (following the publication of Bernikow's first book), as the center of attention during the pair's frequent walks in the upscale Riverside Drive area, and as a source of therapy after Bernikow's cancer diagnosis. They will be touched by her account of how she coped with Libro's final years and prepared for his death. Loosely written and somewhat rambling, this is not as compelling a read as John Grogan's Marley & Me, but it should appeal to a similar readership-the millions who love dogs and share their homes with them. Not a necessary purchase; acquire where local interest demands.
