The #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Short Guide to a Happy Life honors the life of a cherished and loyal friend and offers a heartening lesson on our four-legged family members: Sometimes an old dog can teach us new tricks.
“The life of a good dog is like the life of a good person, only shorter and more compressed,” writes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anna Quindlen about her beloved black Labrador retriever, Beau. With her trademark wisdom and humor, Quindlen reflects on how her life has unfolded in tandem with Beau’s, and on the lessons she’s learned by watching him: to roll with the punches, to take things as they come, to measure herself not in terms of the past or the future but of the present, to raise her nose in the air from time to time and, at least metaphorically, holler, “I smell bacon!”
Good Dog. Stay. is a loving testament to canine companionship, a reflection on the impact a dog leaves on us, and a heartfelt ode to a dear pet.
