Book Description

Nov. 4 2008
As the popularity of Marley & Me attests, people love their dogs?and everyone else?s too. For all the time spent on grooming, petting, and other care?it?s as if owning a dog is a religion unto itself. Woof! brings together original essays from acclaimed writers ruminating on the sometimes tumultuous, often selfless love affair between human and dog. Alternately poignant and hilarious, these collected stories of mutts and purebreds alike will win the hearts of the millions who?ve ever loved a member of the world?s most loyal species.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone with a brain! Nov. 29 2009
By Arlene Wands - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
"Woof!" is exquisitely written! I love this book. The PERFECT gift for anyone with a heart-full of love for dogs -- and a "brain-full" of appreciation for the written word! The writers have a glorious gift in their ability to allow the reader to FEEL what the writers have experienced. And the stories run the gamut -- whimsical, very funny ("My Commodore"!), touching, philosophical...
I've given four copies (so far!) as gifts. And of course, I bought one for myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful May 25 2009
By Robin Ferruggia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A collection of powerful, poignant short stories by contemporary writers about their often complex relationships with dogs. You're not likely to see dogs the same way again after you read this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Woof! Feb. 3 2009
By B. Nichols - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I read a lot and I read a lot of books on dogs, as I'm a dog lover and do lots of fun things with my dogs. I must say, I have not read a worse collection of "dog stories" (using the term loosely) in many years, if ever. The writing was atrocious in most of the stories and the stories mostly consisted of people talking about how their dog or dogs (in some cases several in the same story) were killed or injured by cars or guns, mostly because the owners were woefully ignorant of the most basic responsibilities of dog ownership. Letting dogs run loose to be killed or injured and then blaming others. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who loves dogs, or anyone who loves good stories or good writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Double Woof Jan. 25 2009
By bijou by the bay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Just received this from a friend - I'm loving it! You don't have to be a dog lover to appreciate the humor and touching vignettes herein. One of my favorites so far is by Michelle Latiolais - a touching mix of the comic and the tragic.
