9780061051722: My Life as a Dog

What can you say about Moose? a lovable canine? A consummate professional? A bright star in the Hollywood universe? Yes, you could say all those things. Or you could just say that he was the little dog that could. The little dog that never took no for an answer. The little dog that never said, "I can't," but always, "why can't I?"

The story of Moose is a classic rags-to-riches story of how an average pound-bound puppy barked, jumped, and mugged his way up the ladder of success to become a major superstar. Not since Lassie has America cared so much about one of its four-legged creatures. At least, that's what Moose would say.

I would say that working with that dog has been a nightmare. I had to be at his beck and call, any time, day or night. You don't know what it's like to get a call at three o'clock in the morning because "someone" has something he wants to add to the Frasier chapter. Did he think I had no life of my own? Or that I slept by the telephone waiting for him to call? Yes, he did. Because, like most uber-stars, he thought the world revolved around him. From the moment I committed to working with him on this book, it's been nothing but Moose, Moose, Moose.

But I have to admit he's had a fascinating life. To be plucked out of obscurity and thrust into the limelight may be the dream of every actor in the world, but in reality it's more of a challenge than most people realize. It's hard not toget caught up in all the glitter and hype of Hollywood and completelylose sight of what's really important--family and friends. As egomaniacal as Moose is, he has never forgotten where he came from or taken for granted the fans that got him where he is today.

He's a complex guy--selfish and independent, demanding and feisty, impatient and intense, arrogant and stubborn, and strong-willed. But heis also loving, caring, thoughtful when he wants to be, charismatic, funny, charming, and above all loyal.

In short, Moose is a Jack Russell terrier with an attitude. Is there any other kind?

Review:

An enjoyable read for Eddie-the-dog fans, My Life As a Dog is full of the same snappy attitude that brought stardom to Moose on Frazier. Great photos, replies to a sampling of letters received by the popular canine, and an entertaining life history will supply you with the answers to every possible trivia question about this adorable Jack Russell terrier. What was his first professional job? How many children does he have? What was the name of the film that he and son Enzo acted in alongside Kevin Bacon and Diane Lane? It's all here, and all narrated by the king of cute himself.

Ever wondered why his tongue is always sticking out in that oh-so-elegant manner? Turns out he wore his teeth down from chewing too much as a puppy. You'll be relieved to learn that Frazier isn't really a dog hater--he gets along just fine with Eddie off-screen, and apparently his breath smells like popcorn. We won't spoil the rest of it for you--if you want to learn about the inspiration for that continual stare, or just what flavor of dog biscuits he's partial to, you'll just have to read it yourself! --Jill Lightner
