    I loved this book. We have shared our home with Standard poodles for the last 30 years and was delighted to learn that our girl was Maxim's niece. Doug described Poodle behaviour perfectly. He delightful descriptions made me laugh out loud. I was sorry the book ended. Thank you Doug for such a great read.

    Doug has captured the true spirit of Maxim and a beautiful and loving family. His family are long tine friends and I would be neglectful to not say that the little Cairn Terrier Maxim went walking with was my beloved Breagh. I'm waiting for the next book - where Bonnie stayed with us and met our rescue Cairn Jeffery-John. They amused themselves by racing up and down the stairs in a 4-level condo taking a run at the water dish, flooding the kitchen was too funny. This is a very special book. And a special thanks - we've lost both our Cairn's and Doug just gets it.

    This book charmed me from the very moment I began reading it. I fell in love with this amazing dog and found the funny and insightful writing to keep me engaged. I would recommend this to anyone who loves dogs and would benefit from Doug's deep insights about the psychology of a dog and the love we have for them...oh and how it changes US!

    It's not every day you come across a heartwarming story about dogs and the love of a family. This book had insight into the show dog and most importantly, the family pet. There were moments where I laughed out loud and cried as well. Doug Jordan makes all this possible with his descriptions that are so easy to visualize. Clever, insightful and a whole lot of fun to read. Maxim aside, this family is FUNNY. Especially the honest and familiar portrayal between a husband and wife duo raising a "Champion" Standard Poodle!
