Within these pages we meet the dogs of O'Hurley's life, both his and others', who have served as some of his most valuable and enlightened teachers: Taffy, O'Hurley's first dog, a dachshund who demonstrated that compassion is best expressed by listening; Betty, a sweet bearded dachshund/black Lab mix, who encourages us that not only will a safety net appear if we're brave enough to leap, but that every moment has the potential to change our lives; and Scoshi, a wizened Maltese and O'Hurley's loyal companion for 15 years, who reminds us to always bark the truth, to be grateful for every meal and every moment, to never fear a face-off, and to never miss a nap.
At once poignantly moving and laugh-out-loud funny, It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is a must-read for dog lovers everywhere.

You'll wish it would keep going
If you're not afraid of looks and pointing as you laugh hysterically while driving, this is a book for you! For 3 straight days I arrived at work with the biggest smile on my face. There's something about those furry little faces and wet noses that turn professional people into babbling idiots.
I have always appreciated my dogs for the wonderful creatures they are but I wasn't prepared for the way this book would expand on those feelings. In a positive, feel good fashion, this book is an experience in life from our dogs perspective.... similar to the saying "Don't sweat the small stuff".

Extremely fun listen
The only con I can mention is that it wasn't longer! If you're a dog lover, you will thoroughly enjoy this book and likely identify with some of the stories and personalities. At times laugh out loud funny and at other times tender and touching, this book is a pure joy to listen to (and John's narration is top-notch!).
