My Life with Georgeby Judith Summers

When Judith Summers first met George, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who would change her life, she and her young son, Joshua, were mourning the deaths of her husband and her father, who had died barely two weeks apart.
It was love at first sight. George was the ultimate upper-class pooch, and seemingly the perfect puppy, brimming with love and joy and complete with "the kind of film-star looks that made strangers stop in the street and coo over him."
But, as Judith soon discovered, George was as time-consuming as a full-time job and as expensive to run as a Ferrari. Willful, possessive and badly behaved, he refused to eat anything other than organic roast chicken, destroyed her work, and suffered from every allergy and illness under the sun. On top of that, George was horribly accident-prone. Stuff happened to him. His vet bills alone have run to $25,000?and George is still only nine years old!
It wasn?t long before King George ruled the roost in Judith's home. But even after he drove away one of her suitors, she couldn?t fathom giving him up. Just as his naughtiness was boundless, so was his devotion to her and her son. A foot-warmer on cold nights, a good listener, and a fierce (okay, not so fierce) protector, George was always by their side--and much of the time underfoot.
For anyone who has ever loved an incorrigible pet or known what it was like to lose a loved one, My Life with George is the hilarious and moving account of the impossible but adorable George, and of the wonderful way in which he helped to fill a huge void in the lives of both Judith and her son while driving them absolutely barking mad along the way.

This is probably one of my favorite books of all time! I love all of George's crazy antics and reading about Monster Mog - thinking she was going to get George kicked out of the house..... I would love to read more about George, too bad the author doesn't have a second "George" book in the works. If you love dogs, and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, this book is a MUST READ. I stumbled across it purely by accident, but I am so glad I did. I could not put it down once I started reading it. I laughed so hard at George, but there were also a few tearful moments too.... GO OUT AND GET THIS BOOK!!! RECOMMEND IT TO YOUR FRIENDS!!!
