9780452289819: Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to DoIt: Life Lessons from a Wise Old Dog to a Young Boy

From the New York Times bestselling author ?and his dog? more woofs of wisdom

In his first book, John O?Hurley wrote of the many life lessons he?d learned from dogs?lessons that carried him from the New England woods of his childhood to his life today as an award-winning actor, composer, and writer amidst the bright lights of Hollywood. Now, in Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to Do It, John once again finds himself seeking the wisdom of a canine companion. After years of parenting pets, last December, he became a father to his first child, William. Along with the many new joys of being a dad, John faced a new set of challenges?and it was Scoshi, his wizened white Maltese and faithful confidant for nearly two decades, who, at every turn, pointed the way.

At once poignant, profound, and laugh-out-loud funny, this book is a one-of-a-kind celebration of the joys of parenting pets and children alike, and further testament to the enduring wisdom of man?s best friend.

From the Back Cover:

From the author of the national bestseller It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, more woofs of wisdom—this time, straight from the dog's mouth

After years of parenting pets, John O'Hurley became a father to his first child. Along with the many new joys of being a dad, he faced a new set of challenges, and it was Scoshi, his wizened white Maltese who pointed the way—in writing.

Eight weeks after William was born, John began finding curious scribblings on small scraps of paper. Dear Little Pink Thing, the first note read, Who are you? The notes were Scoshi's life lessons for father and son—a wise old dog sharing truths he had learned over the years.

During the many fishing trips they took together, Scoshi learned the importance of quality time spent with loved ones. When he was waylaid by a skunk, Scoshi learned that life's not always fair—but that there are ways to make the best of it. He also sets straight the fact that dogs only eat homework that was never done—reminding William that it is important to take responsibility for his actions.

At once poignant, profound, and laugh-out-loud funny, Before Your Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have to Do It is a celebration of the joys of parenting pets and children alike, and further testament to the enduring wisdom of man's best friend.
