Reviews

"Twenty tales of man and devoted beast, from James Thurber's 'Josephine Has Her Day, ' in which a persnickety couple come to see their mutt's overpowering attraction, to Tobias Wolff's 'Her Dog, ' Lydia Millet's 'Sir Henry' and Rudyard Kipling's 'Garm, ' possibly one of the greatest love stories ever told--about the bond between a soldier and his dog." -The New York Times

"An entertaining pack of canine-themed short stories ranging from the 19th century to the present day. . . . Editor Tesdell takes pains to avoid the hoariest doggie clichés. . . . A charming assortment of stories that give the species the respect it deserves." -Kirkus Reviews

"Enjoyable. . . . With some exceptions, the dogs in these stories show human beings to disadvantage." --Boston Globe
