Greetings from Illinois (-9 degrees as I type)!!!

I wanted to share with you all a book that was given to me for Christmas. It's called, "My Life with George: What I Learned about Joy from One Neurotic (and Very Expensive) Dog" by Judith Summers. My mom gave it to me because it is about a woman who loses her husband and her son convinces her that what their family needs is a dog. After searching, the main character chooses a Cavalier named George. The book talks about how George pretty much runs her life, chases away suitors and is pretty heartwarming. You'll catch yourself saying, "my dog does that, too" a lot!
While the story does focus a lot on how this woman deals with the death of her husband, the parts of the story with George are just right-on-the-nose when it comes to Cavaliers as pets.
If you're looking for a quick read about a breed you love, check this one out!!!!!

I am also reading this. It's very funny (and sad at times) and George has a lot in common with my Bailey lol :)

I loved "Marley and Me" as well!

I just think George is the cutest little pudgeball! I love how much he insists on sleeping with his owner! Wrigley was in his crate for the first week we had him. We were of the mindset that "no dog will ever sleep in our bed". One week into life with him and he occupied the spot right between us. We wouldn't have it any other way now!!!!!

I read that last year well worth getting, I would say its a better book than My Life With George or Marley and Me.
