Every thing the synopsis says of this book is true. This is story about an absolutely adorable dog who gives his owner so much joy in there life. It shows how important a pet can be. This couple who never had a pet have given their life a wondeful treat.

This book was okay, but there are many other pet related books I've enjoyed more. I feel that the author is a bit egocentric, throwing in expensive brand names, or trying to sound better than the rest of us because she lives on Madison Avenue, owns a home in Umbria, and has traveled to many upper class parts of the world. On the flip side, it's nice to see that her dog is living such a grand life. All furry family members deserve the love and affection that Ben and Elke Gazzara give their dog.

'Madison Avenue Maxi' is a charming, well-written story that lovingly chronicles the journey of an adorable little dachshund and her famous people-parents, Elke and Ben Gazzara. I enjoyed the book very, very much. While to some people, on the surface, this may seem like a simple book about a world-traveling dog and the movie stars, politicians and movers and shakers that she meets with her parents, this book is MUCH deeper than that. Honestly, when I read it, I cried. Maxi and her tale merely set the stage for a series of touching events that unfold in normal people's everyday lives: family struggles and discontent blossom into love, serious health problems become beautifully inspiring and healing moments, friendships grow and change, hardened hearts soften and in spite of unforeseen challenges, life does go on . . . and it goes on with style, with joy, with chins up and with a few barks and wags along the way. Elke Gazzara paints a vivid picture of her 'best friend' Maxi that will touch your heart and make you wish you had a Maxi of your very own. But don't take my word for it!!! Read for yourself. )
