Description

From Canada's beloved award-winning journalist and bestselling author comes a collection of essays, new and previously published, on man's best friend. In the course of 20 years of column writing about everything from politics to hockey and everything in between, Roy MacGregor has learned firsthand that the columns with the greatest reader impact have been those about the family dog. Roy has collected these columns and written many more on everything from puppy love to the sorrow of losing a pet, as experienced by Roy and the dogs he's known and loved. From his earliest moments of dog ownership, when he bundled his new puppy Cindy into his oversized, hand-knitted hockey sweater, to a present-day magical winter's walk in the woods with Willow, Roy MacGregor captures the joys, the mysteries, and the occasional if inevitable heartbreak of a lifetime with dogs. Whether it's a hilarious tour through the puppy brain or the poignant final days shared with a long-lived friend - and everything in between - "The Dog and I" is an homage to a life of unsurpassed companionship and unconditional love.
