Find out all about Devon's life in his new home and his naughty adventures with geese, sheep, buses and meatballs in this wonderful true story!

Reviews

Jon Katz understands dogs as few others do, intuitively and unburdened by sentimentality. His keen insights cut to the heart of the human-pet relationship - its immense joys and painful sorrows. With wisdom and grace, he unlocks the canine soul and the complicated wonders that lie within and offers powerful inights to anyone who has ever struggled with, and loved, a troubled animal -- John Grogan, author of MARLEY AND ME What distinguishes Katz's witty canine account from most others is his absention from sentimentality ... The adventures described in A Dog Year are the stuff of great fiction ... Part cautionary tale, part love story, A Dog Year reminds us that adopting a pet is a massive responsibility but one that rewards the owner with a rich, more meaningful life * Los Angeles Times * Moving, funny ... a loveable mutt of a book * Chicago Times * The book is very enjoyable and makes you laugh at some points * South Wales Argus * The true story of a very lively abandoned Border Collie and the ups and downs of his eventful first year with a new family. * Primary Times *
