A powerful memoir where a chance encounter at a NYC farmers market leads to a new friendship for two women, and two bull terriers. When Martha Teichner’s beloved bull terrier dies, her other bull terrier, Minnie, is left devasted. Carol is dying of cancer and needs someone to take her bull terrier, Harry, on when she passed. Will Harry help Minnie out of her grief?
One of the best parts of being a publication partner is receiving books you would not normally pick you yourself. I never read books with dogs on the cover because I know they’ll be sad. It was true for this story, but it was a very worthwhile read. Pets are great companions, but we know they aren’t likely to outlive us, yet it’s still so heartbreaking when they go. This book is a dog lovers dream, especially bull terrier fans. It’s full of cute tidbits and inside quirks special to the breed; for example how the author was asked multiple times if her dog was an anteater! This was a great read on making friends as an adult, the power pets have over us, and two dogs going through tough times finding each other- just make sure you have tissues at the ready, for real.
