Book #5: Good Dog. Stay. by Anna Quindlen

My fifth book of 2011 was quite short. "Good Dog. Stay." by Anna Quindlen has just 82 pages and over half of those are pages with only pictures on them. It is about Ms. Quindlen's black Lab, Beau.

To be exact, although it is about Beau, it isn't a memoir. It is more of a brief look back at the author's own life and how the dog played a role in it. You don't get much of a look at his personality, but you do get a good glimpse of hers.

It is a pleasant little story and you can feel the love she and her family had for Beau. If you have 30 minutes and don't mind a couple of tears, read about Ms. Quindlen and her dog. I know I would want everyone to get a glimpse of my pets if they could and I bet that is why she shared her Beau in this story.


  1. I liked this one, too! From the looks of your recent books, you're an animal lover? Me too! Great blog.

  2. Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I am an animal lover! My shelves are filled with animal books. I try to break it up now and then. My next review is about Betty White's autobiography. Of course one of the reasons I love her is because she's an animal lover too!
