No dogs were injured or died during the writing of this book. In the interest of full disclosure though, it must be noted during that time span each dog had several accidents in the house due to a lapse in proper toilet habits.
What happens when somebody finally gets their first puppy at sixty and has no practical skills or experiences to prepare for the event? The author finds himself in just that position and thus begins what turns out to be a touching and often funny journey of discovery. The narrative immediately grabs your attention and it is held throughout by a unique blend of humor, humanity and wisdom. In the end Jasper's Person is really a story about family and calls to mind the phrase: "Be the person your dog thinks you are."
