9780156010955: Bark If You Love Me: A Woman-Meets-Dog Story (Harvest Book)

A single city woman meets Mr. Right-he has amber eyes and a wily heart. There's only one catch . . . he has four legs and a tail.
Relatively indifferent to the natural world, allergic to dogs, and happily independent, writer Louise Bernikow never had a pet and knew nothing about caring for one. But one day while running along Manhattan's Hudson River, she came across an abandoned boxer. He had a gimpy leg and a dim past, but Bernikow instantly, bewilderingly, did the one thing her mother always warned her not to do-she brought the strange male home.
Here is the comical and offbeat story of their first year together. Libro, as she comes to call him (for "book," in Spanish), introduces her to the curious world of dog runs and dog people, and to a local dive where the bartender pulls pints from the tap and dog biscuits from the drawer. Bernikow, in turn, introduces Libro to the eccentric neighbors and to life as a media hound. When they meet a handsome man and his equally handsome dachshund,
life takes an unexpected turn for both of them.
Wonderfully written and captivating to the last, this is a remarkable tale of companionship.

From the Back Cover:

Relatively indifferent to the natural world and happily independent, writer Louise Bernikow knew nothing about caring for pets. But one day while running along Manhattan's Hudson River, she came across an abandoned boxer and did what her mother always warned her against--she brought the strange male home. In this off-beat and comical story of their first year together he introduces her to the world of dog runs and to a local dive where the bartender pulls pints from the tap and dog biscuits from the drawer. She introduces him to the eccentric neighbors and to live as a media hound. When they meet a handsome man and his equally handsome dachsund, life takes an unexpected turn for both of them.
A remarkable tale about companionship, wonderfully written and captivating to the last.
"Lively, comical, self-aware and touching, this urban romance shows it is never too late to find love with the proper stranger--even if he happens to be a dog."--Philip Lopate
"A charming tale."--San Francisco Chronicle
LOUISE BERNIKOW is the author of eight books, including Dreamin in Libro: How a Good Dog Tamed a Bad Woman, and many articles on women's history and popular culture.She lives in New York."
