Synopsis

A kaleidoscope of vivid, moving and highly entertaining accounts of the delights and benefits of dog ownership: an anthology of stories, freely contributed, from TV personalities, broadcasters, politicians, writers, and many others. Brought to life with colour photographs of the writers and their beloved canine companions, this is an ideal bedside or coffee table book that can be read cover-to-cover, or simply ‘dipped into.’ It conveys the key message that dogs can – and do – have a positive impact on the way we feel and live. All author royalties go to the charity Samaritans, to support its invaluable work of alleviating emotional distress and reducing suicidal behaviour.

Independent Reviews

It's a delightful collection and, with all author royalties donated to the Samaritans, I would think a difficult one to resist.
The Guardian

As the title implies, this spirited romp is sure to make the reader smile and affirm once again how that four-legged character nestled alongside him/her and possibly helping flip the pages is a best friend and valued family member.
Seattle Kennel Club

The perfect book to reassure dog lovers that they are not alone ... Anyone undecided about the merits of owning a dog will certainly be convinced.
Amazon customer review

Truly heart-warming tales of the indisputable value of canine companionship to owners.
Midwest Book Review

As the title implies, this spirited romp is sure to make the reader smile and affirm once again how that four-legged character nestled alongside him/her and possibly helping flip the pages is a best friend and valued family member.
Seattle Kennel Club

My Dog, my Friend is an inspiring testimony to the power of dogs. It belongs on every dog lover’s bedside table. My Dog, my friend offers the reader perceptive insights into worlds shared with dogs. A gem of collective wisdom to inspire us all.
This beautifully conceived testimony to the dog is an ideal gift.
Geelong Obedience Dog Club

This is a really attractive book for all lovers of dogs and those who are intrigued by the ‘healing’ psychological effects of pets generally ... a lovely Christmas stocking filler for any dog lover. It is a book to kick off your shoes and curl up with and simply enjoy heart warming stories.
Pet Owners Association

This is very much a life-affirming book that will appeal to non-dog owners as well as those of us that do share our life with a dog.
Lost and Fond
