4.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming and hilarious, a must for all dog owners, 21 May 2012
This review is from: Handbags and Poobags: Tales of a Soho Boxer Dog (Kindle Edition)
This book is good fun and I have completely fallen in love with the Boxer Puppy (I won't give away his name). It tells the story of how a city girl who loves to party has her life completely transformed when buying a Boxer dog puppy.

Alice lives in Soho and her life consists of focusing on her career and attending glamorous premieres and parties. Her life is completely transformed when her and her partner decide to buy a puppy.

This book has some hilarious anecdotes, tips on how to clear up doggy poo (don't wear a long scarf), and builds a realistic picture of the responsibility of owning a dog. If you were planning on buying a puppy for the first time I would definitely recommend reading this book beforehand. The author states on numerous occasions that it is not a training manual, however, it is a good way of preparing you for the damage puppy can do to furniture, also how much time and commitment is required to become a responsible dog owner.

For the puppy's first birthday Alice holds a birthday party at her office for him, this was one of my favourite parts of the book. The food ordered, the balloons, gifts and also the reactions of the other members of the office.

There are many other funny moments in the book which I do not want to spoil. The story is also a love story and there are some really touching moments in the book.

I am also a dog owner and can relate to a lot of the tales in the book, I can also relate to the fact that the good times outweigh the bad and your dog will end up being a part of your family (and most probably will end up sleeping in your bed!)

A lovely story, 4 stars from me.
