You may remember John O'Hurley as J. Peterman from the sitcom Seinfeld from the 1990's. If you are too young, that's okay. You may still enjoy this book. John has been devoted to dogs since his childhood, and in It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, his dry wit explores his relationship with his dogs and the wisdom they have shared with him.
Out of Four Paws
Hi! I am back again to review another book (audio book actually). What is it with all these books about dogs? I want to review something about a cat. Please, if anyone out there knows of a good cat book or movie, email Mommy (Ray) at Raylene@yourcrittersitters.com so she can let me review it instead of all these doggy stories.
I would imagine that it is a nice read, but I highly recommend the audio book. John’s voice is purrfect for putting you in his shoes (or a dog’s paws) so you feel exactly what he or they felt and experienced. This would be lost in print. I wouldn’t say this was “laugh out loud”, but his dry, self-deprecating wit is enjoyable throughout his insights into dogs and humans, and he passes along some good advice from dogs. Now I’m not saying dogs are smarter than cats, but they do have a modicum of intelligence. This is a touching and tender view on life, love and barking. ~Lucky
