Synopsis

My Life with George The Inspirational Story of How a Wilful Dog Brought Joy to a Bereaved Family by Judith Summers

When Judith Summers's husband and father both died within the space of two weeks, she found herself floundering. Life for her and her eight-year-old son Joshua seemed relentlessly bleak. Then George bounced into their lives. A loving Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with film-star looks, George reawoke their joie de vivre. Yet Judith soon discovered that living with George had its drawbacks. He was a full-time job and as expensive to run as a Ferrari. Wilful and badly behaved, he refused to eat anything other than roast chicken, preferred travelling by car to walking, and became as jealous as a spurned lover if any man dared show an interest in her. And when a near-death tangle with a Staffordshire Bull terrier resulted in costly sessions with an animal psychologist, Judith found that it was she who was put on the couch . . .

Reviews

Animal enthusiasts will love this story of four-legged emotional rescue but beneath the surface there is a touching and bravely charted narrative of bereavement and its aftermath * Daily Express *
