Abstract:

Chronicles Yoffe's journey from cat person to dog lover. She was in for some surprises when she took in a neurotic rescued beagle to satisfy her daughter; the transformation begins with consternation and culminates with real affection as she becomes a foster mother to a series of homeless beagles; she studies (without success) to be a pet psychic; and she visits the Department of Homeland Security to watch sausage- and incendiary device-sniffing canines in action. She finds that everyone who has ever owned a dog has a story to tell, and becomes the repository for adventures of heroic, lovable, lazy, malodorous, phlegmatic and incontinent dogs--this book delivers some of the most outlandish and certainly the funniest dog stories on record. But, at its heart, it tells how Yoffe's family turned Sasha, the skittish stray, into a wonderful pet--and how Sasha transformed Yoffe into a dog-lover for life.--From publisher description.
