Item Details

Dawn Tarnauer's life isn't exactly a success story. Already twice divorced, the young Californian is too busy job-hopping to start a career, her current boyfriend insists on living "off the grid," and her Life Coach sister perpetually interferes with incomprehensible affirmations. Dawn's only source of security and comfort, it seems, is Chuck, a pit-bull mix from the pound. So when her boyfriend announces that he's leaving her for another woman, a despairing Dawn turns to Chuck for solace. "I should have said something sooner," Chuck confides. Dawn is stunned. It's one thing to talk to your pets, but what do you do when they start talking back? It's not just Chuck, either; she can hear all dogs--and man's best friend has a lot to say.--From publisher description.

Normally I'm not one for talking animals in human geared novels - if it's a general fiction. But this one was hilarious. Suffering a trauma, suddenly hearing her dog talking to her, what does it all mean? Sometimes it means nothing more than the fact that you're life is turned upside down and you're not sure what to do next. I hate the people who treat their dog like a nuisance... just a side story, but still.

Dawn Tarnauer knows that her life has taken a strange turn when she receives advice on her love life from her dog! After her latest break-up, Chuck, a dog she got from the pound, suddenly starts talking and offering advice about life and love. It is not just Chuck either, dog lover Dawn realizes that she can communicate with all dogs – and what stories they tell! Is she crazy, or has something wonderful happened to her? Should she follow their instincts over her own? A recommended, humorous read about life, love and the benefits of simple pleasures.
