You Had Me at Woof
You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness | Julie Klam
6 posts | 8 read | 10 to read
The hilarious and heartfelt chronicle of a woman learning the secrets of love, health, and happiness from some very surprising teachers: her dogs. Julie Klam was thirty, single, and working as a part-time clerk in an insurance company, wondering if she would ever meet the man she could spend the rest of her life with. And then it happened. She met the irresistible Otto, her first in a long line of Boston terriers, and fell instantly in love. You Had Me at Woof is the often hilarious and always sincere story of how one woman discovered life's most important lessons from her relationships with her canine companions. From Otto, Julie realized what it might feel like to find "the one." She learned to share her home, her heart, and her limited resources with another, and she found an authentic friend in the process. But that was just the beginning. Over the years her brood has grown to one husband, one daughter, and several Boston terriers. And although she had much to learn about how to care for them-walks at 2 a.m., vet visits, behavior problems-she was surprised and delighted to find that her dogs had more wisdom to convey to her than she had ever dreamed. And caring for them has made her a better person-and completely and utterly opened her heart. Riotously funny and unexpectedly poignant, You Had Me at Woof recounts the hidden surprises, pleasures, and revelations of letting any mutt, beagle, terrier, or bulldog go charging through your world.Watch a Video

A charming little doggy-tastic read about how much dogs (in this case Boston Terriers) bring into your life. Julie goes from owning her first dog Otto to volunteering to rescue and foster Boston terriers and it's through all her anecdotes that she shows how doggy companionship offers something unique to any other relationships. A nice read for dog lovers ❤🐶

I bought this book based solely on the dog on the front cover. It's a lovely story about a woman and her beloved dogs. Be warned- you will cry. #recommendsday
