Book: You Had Me at Woof

Just look at this book. Is that not the cutest cover ever?!

Combining dogs and reading is one of my favorite thing: reading about dogs...reading with a dog on my lap...reading while walking a dog (difficult, but achievable). That's why I'm excited to recommend You Had Me at Woof , a new memoir by Julie Klam (author of Please Excuse My Daughter). Julie writes with honesty and humor. I learned a little about her Boston Terrier Otto in her first book, and can't wait to meet up with Otto again. What's more, in this new book there are other dogs to love: Beatrice, Hank, Moses and Sherlock and more.

From Amazon:
The hilarious and heartfelt chronicle of a woman learning the secrets of love, health, and happiness from some very surprising teachers: her dogs.

Julie Klam was thirty, single, and working as a part-time clerk in an insurance company, wondering if she would ever meet the man she could spend the rest of her life with. And then it happened. She met the irresistible Otto, her first in a long line of Boston terriers, and fell instantly in love.

You Had Me at Woof is the often hilarious and always sincere story of how one woman discovered life's most important lessons from her relationships with her canine companions... Riotously funny and unexpectedly poignant, You Had Me at Woof recounts the hidden surprises, pleasures, and revelations of letting any mutt, beagle, terrier, or bulldog go charging through your world.

Check out this hysterical book trailer. And then I hope you run out to the book store to get this book!
