“Illustrated with striking, blurred black-and-white photos, this collection muses on canine wisdom and charm.”—Booklist “Dog lovers will likely lap it up eagerly, budding writers will snuffle it with interest, and teens who combine the two tendencies might even roll ecstatically.” —Kirkus Reviews

Funny, comforting, and surprising, the words in this book explore our lives with dogs: dogs who befriend us, and dogs who annoy, perplex, and accept us. Teens speak for themselves in honest and forthright essays, and Joyce Sidman’s insightful poems further express the bond between dog and teen.

From the Author:

"This book started with a dog--my dog. I began writing poems about him in a dark time, when I needed comfort and he was there.  Friends, reading the poems, told me their feelings about their dogs, which spurred me to write more poems.  When my editor read the collection, she asked a What if? question.  'What if we were to ask teens to write about their dogs, and include those stories with the poems?'  I posted invitations on listserves and teen Web sites. Librarians and teachers across the country helped me.  The essays that flooded in were so full of warmth that I knew teen voices belonged in the book.  The teen authors provided photos of their dog, and Doug Mindell--with his emotive, expressive photographs--illustrated my poems.  That is how the book came together.  But it started with a dog."
