For Paul Gustavson, life is a succession of obstacles, a minefield of mistakes to stumble through. His wife has left him, his father has suffered a stroke, his girlfriend is dating another man, he has impotency issues, and his overachieving brother invested his parents’ money in stocks that tanked. Still, Paul has his friends at Bay State bar, a steady line of cocktails, and Stella.

Stella is Paul’s dog. She listens with compassion to all his complaints about the injustices of life and gives him better counsel than any human could. Their relationship is at the heart of this poignantly funny and deeply moving story about a man trying to fix his past in order to save his future.

From the Author:

This is a book about love in all its various forms, love between a man and a woman, a man and a dog, between brothers, within a family --- and how love gets us through the hardest of times.  It's more than just another dog book, but it's a dog book too.  Cat lovers, please, no letters.  I like cats just fine, but I'm too allergic to pick them up, and if you can't do that, what's the point?

I hope you like this book.  It took me twelve years to finish.  It will take you considerably less time.

About the Author:

Pete Nelson is the author of several books, including Left for Dead. He is also a singer-songwriter with a select but devoted following. He is not, however, the Pete Nelson who writes books about tree houses, although he has nothing against them. He lives in Westchester County, New York.
