Dogs We Love

With Jane Smiley, Armistead Maupin, Ann Beattie, Edward Albee, and 14 Other Dog People

By Michael J. Rosen Michael J. Rosen

What we love about our dogs.

Some of us just "feel incomplete without the company of a dog or two," as Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Edward Albee puts it in this timeless collection of great writing about dogs. In fact, millions of us wouldn't dream of living without dogs, none more so than the renowned dog-devoted authors of Dogs We Love. From Ann Beattie debating whether to upgrade from "occasional dog sitter" to full-time dog owner to Bob Shacochis fretting over how to welcome a second dog into a one-dog household, these 18 tributes convey with wit, insight, and passion the love that makes the bond between dogs and dog-people so powerful. Accompanied by the humorous, endearing photographs of Robin Schwartz, Dogs We Love gives image and voice to the enduring, undiluted emotions that our canine companions inspire.
