Publisher's Summary

Julie Klam was 30, single, and working as a part-time clerk in an insurance company, wondering if she would ever meet the man she could spend the rest of her life with. And then it happened. She met the irresistible Otto, her first in a long line of Boston terriers, and fell instantly in love.
You Had Me at Woof is the often hilarious and always sincere story of how one woman discovered life's most important lessons from her relationships with her canine companions. From Otto, Julie realized what it might feel like to find "the one". She learned to share her home, her heart, and her limited resources with another, and she found an authentic friend in the process. But that was just the beginning. Over the years, her brood has grown to one husband, one daughter, and several Boston terriers. And although she had much to learn about how to care for them - walks at 2 a.m., vet visits, behavior problems - she was surprised and delighted to find that her dogs had more wisdom to convey to her than she had ever dreamed. And caring for them has made her a better person - and completely and utterly opened her heart.
Riotously funny and unexpectedly poignant, You Had Me at Woof recounts the hidden surprises, pleasures, and revelations of letting any mutt, beagle, terrier, or bulldog go charging through your world.

Critic Reviews

"A funny, wise and moving account of being dragged into reluctant adulthood by a pack of abandoned Boston terriers. It didn't just make me laugh - it also, I'll confess, made a grown man cry." (Ken Foster, author of The Dogs Who Found Me)

Enjoyed the audio version..

This book is about the journey of being a dog owner and rescue person. I own 4 dogs myself and dog sit for another. 4 out of 5 are also Boston's. I could really relate to the Author. What I liked about this book is that the stories are true and heartfelt. They made me laugh and cry. What I really liked is how the book shows how important it is to be a responsible pet owner and how much our pets need us. I recomend this book for all dog lovers but especially for someone considering getting their first dog.

The title is titilating, but I had to stop listening after the first two hours. I couldn't take the obsessiveness of the character, the fact the dog dies without any reference to its aging or demise. The author then launches into her marriage and having kids. It made it hard to follow or stay engaged.
