Having lost both her husband and her father to cancer within the space of two weeks, Judith Summers suddenly found herself in the depths of depression and grief. Life for her and her nine-year-old son Joshua felt like it was never going to be normal again. But then Judith met George, and she was immediately smitten. George, a gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, bounded into their little family?'s household bringing much-needed joy with him. Yet, as Judith soon discovered, living with a George had its drawbacks: he was as time-consuming as a full-time job and as expensive to run as a Ferrari. Willful, stubborn and badly-behaved, he refused to eat anything other than organic roast chicken, and became as jealous as a spurned lover if any man dared show an interest in Judith. And then when a near-death experience with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier resulted in very pricey sessions with an animal psychologist, Judith found herself on the therapist?'s couch. My Life withGeorge is the delightful account of the impossible but adorable George, of? his adventures and misdemeanors, and ofthe wonderful way in which he filled a huge void in Judith and Joshua?'s liveswhilst driving them absolutely barking mad along the way.

Judith Summers ‘My Life With George’ started out with some wonderful humorous stories about her dog George, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. It would be too much to ask any author to dedicate 271 pages to one dog and this proved to be the case. The book is more about the author’s life which was turned upside down when she lost her husband Udi and her father within a two week period and her need to maintain a balanced and loving life with her young son; this problem overtook the book. The book is well written but I cannot say it was wholly entertaining. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
