Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“A sparkling collection of 51 dog stories… this selection of vignettes is varied, entertaining and frequently heartwarming.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The pieces run the gamut from heart-wrenching to hilarious… this is a wonderful compilation of well-written short narratives covering all aspects of life with dogs.” (Library Journal)

“I love this book.” (Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC's "Morning Joe")

Présentation de l'éditeur

Inspired by Garden & Gun magazine’s popular “Good Dog” column, a rich collection of true stories celebrating the unique relationship between humans and their canine companions, penned by some of today’s top writers, including Jon Meacham, Roy Blount, Jr, Dominique Browning, and P.J. O’Rourke.

When Garden & Gun magazine debuted a column aptly named “Good Dog,” it quickly became one of the publication’s most popular features in print. Now, Editor-in-Chief David DiBennedetto (proud owner of a Boykin spaniel) and the editors of G&G have gathered the most memorable stories, as well as original pieces, in this collection of essays written by some of most notable dog owners in literature and journalism.

Good Dog offers memorable, beautifully written stories of dog ownership, companionship, friendship, and kinship. From the troublemakers who can’t be fenced in to the lifelong companions who won’t leave our sides, this poignant anthology showcases man’s best friend through all of his most endearing—and sometimes maddening—attributes. By turns inspirational and humorous (just like the dogs we love), Good Dog is a must-have collection for dog lovers everywhere.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dogs - wonderful animals and great friends 23 octobre 2014

`Good Dog' written by Garden and Gun magazine Editor David DiBenedetto and fellow editors is beautiful collection of stories which celebrates friendship between people and our best animal friends - dogs.

On more than 300 pages between covers more than 50 stories can be found split into five chapters whose names speak for them:
- The Troublemakers
- Into the Field
- Man's Best Friend
- Family Ties
- Life Lessons

Book starts with introduction made by DiBenedetto himself in which he speaks about his infant son highlighting how important in his opinion is the role of dog in the life of every human being who loves these animals - starting from childhood and throughout whole life's journey.

What follows is compilation of stories from actual life, stories that are full of humor and wisdom or in some occasions speak about sad situations, but all of them manage to touch reader heart in very special way. Speaking about dog's life path from time when as puppies they are playful and clumsy to the old days when we need to separate from old friends which is so hard and painful, authors succeeded to make book which in many ways will additionally attach reader to beloved animal friends.

Quoting his friend Guy Martin DiBenedetto says that "It's simultaneously never the right time for a new dog, no matter what, and always the right time for a new dog, no matter what." And that is exactly what this book manages to arouse in reader heart - a desire that if you do not already have a dog, through a multitude of stories for nth time you will realize how wonderful animals and great friends they are.

And get one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I subscribe to Garden and Gun and Good Dog is the first article I read every month 26 novembre 2014

I subscribe to Garden and Gun and Good Dog is the first article I read every month, so I was excited to see and order the book. In the magazine there is always a GREAT cartoon illustration to accompany every article. Unfortunately, they did not make it to the book. That is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars

I am a dog lover. I always have been. The earliest photos of me are of our dog Cookie and me in my playpen or sitting in the sand at the beach or on our motor boat. I usually had my three year old arm around him. Dogs are the best Christians( and I imagine the best Jews). They love you no matter what you do or don't do. They forgive you if you cause them some type of trouble like taking them to the vet for shots. Now I will tell the story of Cookie 111. She was a British black lab and was smallish in size. When Cookie was about three years old, she seemed despondent. So we got her a puppy....a sort of back up dog. They instantly bonded and our second dog, Gidgit ( the children named her) never cried. Cookie was happy and they played together gleefully. My husband had bought Cookie a station wagon and then decided she needed water to swim. So we bought a cabin on the Lynnhaven river. Both dogs loved it and spent many hours fetching a stick (we threw two but Gidgit always helped Cookie in with her stick). We noticed a strange behavior that Cookie was exhibiting. At high tide, she would swim out a way and then she would be upside down in the water with just her tail and back legs sticking up. We couldn't figure out what she was doing until we told the story to a man who said she was probably eating oysters. At high tide oysters open up to feed. It turned out to be what she was doing. We also noticed a pile of oyster shells under a tree. she was getting them at low tide and bringing them up the hill to eat. She lived 15 years and had no front teeth left. Of course I loved Good Dog.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I really thought I was going to like this book 22 novembre 2014
Par John B. Murphy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I really thought I was going to like this book. How can any dog lover dislike a book about dogs? Because the authors of the stories are writers first--and dog lovers second or third. The stories are written by by friends of the author who also happen to have dogs. Just because you have a dog doesn't mean you really really love dogs or have good stories about them. It seems like this guy asked 20 friends to write something about their dog and put them in the book without editing any of them--without saying "hmmm, thanks but that story isn't very good I'm going to leave it out.

A few examples:

A story from a guy who had dogs has a kid but now he travels too much to have one. The End. Trust me, this isn't a story about a guy longing for a dog and bemoans all the travel because he really wants a dog. Nope. This guy likes to travel so no dog. The end.

Another about a couple who want a puppy at 6 weeks but find out the puppy due to eye problems won't be available until 8 weeks. So.....they don't get the puppy. The end. Again, the couple doesn't really care. The story ends with them wanting a puppy from the next litter and will take the other one then if it's still there.

Another with a story about their dog chewing things up. Wow. Never heard of that before. A chapter on why Pit Bulls are nice dogs that doesn't open up anything you haven't heard before.

The stories aren't funny, won't make you cry, won't make you look at your dog differently. Just people that have dogs that also happen to be writers and knew the guy who put the book together. Very disappointing.

Get one of the Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul instead.
