9780091932251: A Good Dog: The Story of Orson, Who Changed My Life

When Jon took on a troublesome two-year-old Border Collie in A Dog Year, it turned his sedate life upside down and culminated in a move from suburbia to a rural farm.

But the contrary Collie - incredibly loyal but incredibly misbehaved - never settles down. Jon tries everything, obedience training, changing his name from Devon to Orson, even acupuncture, and it all helps a little, but not enough.

Together Jon and Orson chase sheep across high meadows, wade through snow, bask by a roaring stove and struggle to keep faith in each other. A story of great joy and heartbreak, in A Good Dog Jon faces the most difficult decision any dog lover has to make ...

Review:

"Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. His keen insights cut to the heart of the human-pet relationship - its immense joys and painful sorrows. With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful inights to anyone who has ever struggled with, and loved, a troubled animal" (John Grogan, author of MARLEY AND ME)

"Like John Grogan's Marley and Me, A Good Dog shows how the intersection of canine and human can bsometimes result in profound love - as well as profound frustration ... A heartbreaking love story" ( USA Today)

"We should all have such a companion" ( Washington Globe)

"[A] loving tribute to that once-in-a-lifetime dog" ( Library Journal)

Book Description:

A heartbreaking tribute to a difficult dog, by the Sunday Times bestselling author of A Dog Year and A Home for Rose
