The Dog Who Couldn’t Stop Loving by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

How Dogs Have Captured Our Hearts for Thousands of Years

This is more than a collection of bits of information about the relationships between  man and dog. I think that this is a love story inspired by Mr. Masson’s relationship with and love for his beloved dog, Benjy, and 2 cats. This is the first book that I’ve read by this award-winning author.  It has some provocative ideas about how the relationship between man and dog was developed thousands of years ago.  And there are some heart warming, stories about Masson’s relationships with his four-legged family members.  His dialogue is supported by a full bibliography section, notes and index.

After All These Years by Susan Isaacs

“After All These Years” by Susan Isaacs is a crime novel, with a fusion of humor and romance, about a wealthy, middle-aged, Jewish, high school English teacher who finds her soon-to-be ex-husband stabbed to death on the floor of her kitchen. Due to lazy police work, our heroine is deemed to be the suspect in the murder, and is therefore forced to go-on-the-lamb in order to launch her own investigation. She is fortified by her knowledge of detective work that she’s acquired due to her passion for crime novels. The reader is treated to her transformation from a woman of wealth to a street wise detective.

I have this book in queue to read, but in the meantime I wanted to report that my Tucker was one of the “lucky dogs” chosen to participate in the video advertisement for this book. He’s the one in the yellow rain slicker.
