A Good Dog: The Story of Orson, Who Changed My Life by Jon Katz (Author)

When Jon took on a troublesome two-year-old Border Collie in A Dog Year, it turned his sedate life upside down and culminated in a move from suburbia to a rural farm.

A Good Dog Reviews


"Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. His keen insights cut to the heart of the human-pet relationship - its immense joys and painful sorrows. With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful inights to anyone who has ever struggled with, and loved, a troubled animal" -- John Grogan, author of MARLEY AND ME
"Like John Grogan's Marley and Me, A Good Dog shows how the intersection of canine and human can bsometimes result in profound love - as well as profound frustration ... A heartbreaking love story" * USA Today *
"We should all have such a companion" * Washington Globe *
"[A] loving tribute to that once-in-a-lifetime dog" * Library Journal *
