When Harry Met Minnie was a beautiful story by Martha Teichner, a CBS news correspondent, and is more than just a book about dogs. I did a combo of ebook and audiobook for this one, and Martha Teichner's story was so captivating! She narrated the audiobook herself, I love when that happens!

The story starts with Martha searching for an older Bull Terrier to adopt; one of hers had just passed away. Through a chance encounter, she meets an old friend and he puts her in touch with one of his close friends named Carol. Recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, Carol is looking for someone to adopt her Bull Terrier, Harry, not a small feat due to his age and high maintenance care. Martha agrees to meet Carol and Harry, and they slowly introduce her dog, Minnie as well.

What follows are beautiful friendships, sadness, loss, and hope. I adored this memoir, and Martha's love of the Bull Terrier Breed was evident throughout the book. Be sure to have tissues on hand!
