You Had Me At WoofPosted: January 31, 2011
Again, from the latest edition of the AKC Gazette: A new memoir by Julie Klam: You Had Me At Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness, offers chapter-by-chapter lessons in life.
The article included an excerpt, a complete story actually that starts like this…
“I was on the treadmill at the gym when I got a call. It was about 95 degrees outside and I had to dry off repeatedly to hear Sheryl, the head of my Boston Terrier rescue group. A woman had found a Boston in the West Village and was going to dump him in the city pound if someone didn’t get him today. I called the woman and said I’d come. She told me to meet her at West 4th Street. I took the train down and waited for her to show up. A very thin young woman wearing a black slip, stiletto heels, and Victoria Beckham-type sunglasses was coming towards me. She was definitely on drugs.”
I put the book on hold at my library too.
