Présentation de l'éditeur

“The life of a good dog is like the life of a good person, only shorter and more compressed,” writes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anna Quindlen about her beloved black Labrador retriever, Beau. With her trademark wisdom and humor, Quindlen reflects on how her life has unfolded in tandem with Beau’s, and on the lessons she’s learned by watching him: to roll with the punches, to take things as they come, to measure herself not in terms of the past or the future but of the present, to raise her nose in the air from time to time and, at least metaphorically, holler, “I smell bacon!”

Of the dog that once possessed a catcher’s mitt of a mouth, Quindlen reminisces, “there came a time when a scrap thrown in his direction usually bounced unseen off his head. Yet put a pork roast in the oven, and the guy still breathed as audibly as an obscene caller. The eyes and ears may have gone, but the nose was eternal. And the tail. The tail still wagged, albeit at half-staff. When it stops, I thought more than once, then we’ll know.”

Heartening and bittersweet, Good Dog. Stay. honors the life of a cherished and loyal friend and offers us a valuable lesson on our four-legged family members: Sometimes an old dog can teach us new tricks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honoring a hound with humor and sensitivity 21 novembre 2007
Par Richard Cumming - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Anna Quindlen has written a succulent tribute to her beloved black Lab, Beau. It's funny, and fond, sentimentally delightful, a fitting honor to a dog who lived a long life.

There isn't any whining here. She makes you laugh as she recalls the pup who spent so many happy days and when he grew old could still get excited about the scent of pork roast in the oven.

When it was his time to go they said goodbye with dignity. The many photos of dogs enhance this pithy homage to a wonderful dog.

Quindlen is not adequately appreciated for her sense of humor. She is one of our leading literary stylists. This book will be treasured by many dog lovers.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Dissapointingly short 28 novembre 2007
Par Richard Piatt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I purchased this book to be quite honest because the picture of Beau on the cover reminded me so much of my dog Shelly who I had to put down 1-1/2 years ago. I don't know exactly what I hoped for when I purchased this book other than perhaps a loving, funny, retrospective on the life and times of a Black Lab. I guess to a certain extent that is exactly what this book is however there is so little text between all those photos that I can't help but feel that I've been cheated. First off the book is small. Then about half of the pages (or more!) are photos. The text is double spaced. If this had been printed more like any other book it would have taken up perhaps 20 pages total. Somehow, that is just not enough reminiscing for me! I want to hear more of Beau's adventures. I want to hear more about how he aged and how he dealt with Bea (the Quindlen's Yellow Lab companion for Beau). I want more! What little is there is moderately interesting but it lacks the 'wisdom learned through experience' I had imagined I might find between the pages. Overall the book was a disappointment (obviously) and not one I'm likely to read again. But I sure would have loved a chance to say hi to Beau regardless of how bad his book is!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A lovely read 2 décembre 2007
Par L. D Sears - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I have to be quite honest. I read this whole "book" at my local bookstore and did not spend a dime on it! Part of the problem is that, though it is selling as a book, what it really is is a quite lovely, funny and moving essay about some of Ms. Quindlen's life with Beau, her Lab. I own a Lab and feel about mine the same way Ms. Quindlen does about hers. Like other reviewers here, I do wish that she would expand this essay into a real book--and that I would buy. But for now, I can recommend this book to all dog owners--and certainly to any of you who enjoy your Lab as much as I do mine. Read it, for sure--the purchasing of it, quite honestly, I have to leave up to you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Charmer 20 novembre 2007
Par Rick Tome - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A wise, warm, and compelling little book that is as much about a family as it is about the dog they loved. Quindlen poignantly captures the obscure, seemingly mundane, events in life that are only fully appreciated in retrospect. In truth, this is a finely crafted essay on how we learn to let go of those we cherish most.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lovely Essay -- Not a Book 1 février 2008
Par Eliza G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
With dog books such a profitable cottage industry, it's no surprise to see famous people/writers throwing their hat in the ring.

"Good Dog, Stay" is a thoughtful, heartfelt tribute to a dog. And, in Quindlen style, there are some magnificent turns of phrases, laugh-out-loud humor, and sharp insights proffered.

In order to disguise the brevity of the book, the publisher pads nearly every other page with stock photography of generic dog photos, which felt contrived and meaningless. Why not photos of Quinden's dog?

While Quindlen's writing is as crisp as ever, I think the publisher was misguided on this project.
