Bad Dog: A Love Story

Bad Dog: A Love Story - Martin Kihn Martin Kihn is a cat person -- and an alcoholic. When his wife, Gloria, convinces him to get a dog, they bring home Hola -- a Bernese mountain dog.Hola runs amok for a great deal of the book ... which seems to match up with Kihn's life. As he enters recovery, and Gloria leaves him, Kihn decides it's time to work on Hola's training. His goal? To pass the Canine Good Citizen test.The challenges of recovery mirror his experiences in the dog training world; both require self-mastery. Kihn obviously has a good sense of humor about himself, and his descriptions of dealing with his enthusiastic large dog, the cat he acquires from his AA sponsor, and putting his life back together are sure to bring both a laugh and a tear.Highly recommended.(Review based on uncorrected advance proof.)
