A Book about Dogs, Love and Houses

I just recently joined Library Things "Early Reviewers" program.
I thought it might be fun.
Well I got a book my first time choosing and what a perfect book it was for me!
Carol's story of her 42 year marriage and the 10 different dogs they had through the years sounded so much like my life!
I have only had 4 dogs and I hope I am a better chooser of breeds than she was at times. Her quick wit with the stories of her dogs made me chuckle out loud many times to where I was annoying my husband. Which leads me to her relationship with Millard, her high school sweetheart! It is so refreshing to read about a real couple. The things they loved and shared and the things they just put up with. Their love was deep and special and I am glad Carol chose to write about their life.
If you love dogs, fixing up houses, antiques and especially have a good long lasting marriage, I think this book will give you a few good evenings of pleasurable reading!
It's available now at or many other book stores.

(note: the real cover has a Jack Russel on the front)

  3. I have come over from 'Owning the Words' blog and I am enjoying your blog. I love that you do these early reviews. How fun. Would you say the book is a memoir then?

  4. Oh, I wish my library had an early reviewers program! I'm jealous!

  5. Oh, thanks for clarifying. I did see the capitals and Thing part of Library Thing, but it didn't click. I saw library and that's where my mind went. Duh.
