One of mom and dad's very dear friends send a book in the mail and mom has started to read it. She's about halfway through it and she says that it's a wonderful story. The book is called "A Dog Year" and it's by an author named Jon Katz. She's never read a book by this author before but she noticed on one of the first pages that Mr. Katz has written many books.
A Dog Year: Twelve Months, Four Dogs, and Me is the story of how Devon and Jon—and Julius and Stanley—came to terms with each other. It shows how a man discovered a lot about himself through one dog (and then another) whose temperament seemed as different from his own as day is from night. It is a story of trust and understanding, of life and death, of continuity and change. It is by turns insightful, hilarious, and deeply moving."
Please read us the story, mom!
