Publisher's Summary

The hilarious and heartwarming account of Miranda and her life changing dog, the inimitable and most lovable Peggy.
Hello dear audiobook browser and welcome to Peggy and Me. The story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy.
Some of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I'm sold. In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.
Others of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally mad, she must have officially lost it.' In which case I completely understand. For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion. The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement.
But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds. It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration (dog-min), and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me. It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.
Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me....

Not A Comedy

I was looking for a light and funny book. I love Miranda's comedy and was hoping for a book along that line. No such luck. I am two hours in and so far we have explored a disastrous burglary, childhood disappointments and pet death upsets and a long detailed discussion of elephant abuse in Thailand. This list just names a few of the unhappy topics covered. Really not funny at all. Wish I could have not heard about the elephants.

What was equally troubling was the narration. Hart speaks very quickly and softly--which at times was hard to understand. Even worse, during the reading there was a dog barking in the background. This was a distant barking that kept me thinking that one of my dogs was in trouble somewhere. Distracting and odd.

I can't continue with this listen as I am not sure what distressing thing will come up next and I can't stand all the barking. Giving up.

Heart full of love

I've been yearning for a dog for many years. Not being able to own one for various reasons has left a nagging hole. I don't know where it came from all of a sudden a few years back. Listening to Miranda has only widened that hole into a full on ache of loneliness. This book was funny, heart wrenching and lovely. Thank you for giving a reason for this ache Miranda. I'm a crazy dog lady and I own a cat.
