A couple’s best friend? 

Stylist Jessica Champlin knows it takes more than a darling goldendoodle to save a marriage. She and her ex-husband, investigative journalist Sebastian Hess, had too many irreconcilable differences for even their beloved dog, Baxter, to heal. So they’ve agreed to joint custody, and life has settled into a prickly normalcy.

But when Baxter heroically rescues a child and the video footage goes viral, Jess and Sebastian are thrown together again, and her life takes some very unexpected twists. The line of dogwear she creates becomes wildly successful, and suddenly she’s in the spotlight with everyone watching—the press, the new guy she’s seeing, Sebastian and the past she never imagined she would face again. Soon there’s only one person by her side—and it’s the person she least expected. She’s willing to open up to a new normal…just as long as Baxter approves.

  1. My son and I go walking 5 days a wk and wake up at 6 o’clock in the morning. My Gracie is very excited to walk. She wakes up before I do and she rubs herself around my bed and if my feet are out of the bed, she makes sure I am up so she can go walking by rubbing my feet. She does every time we go walking.

  2. I grew up with dogs, until one time we were between dogs and were adopted by a cat. We had cats for years, and added a couple of dogs for a time. I’ve only lived with cats. I find they suit me better than dogs. Both my sisters have dogs and my nephew has started his pack. Big dogs too, Labs and standard poodles and lab mixes. I don’t lack for dogs, but I still like cats better.

  3. My Mom has a favorite chair she sits on. My dog Sami likes to sit on top of my mom legs. My mom likes to sing and Sami will sing with her. When my mom hits a high note Sami will do the same

  4. I can honestly not remember a time growing up where we weren’t completely surrounded by animals of all sorts. My dad was a magnet for all strays everywhere he went it seemed. He went fishing one day & came home with a dog, we named Lucky, by enticing him into his truck with sandwiches once he realized he was abandoned. He joined a family that was already overflowing with cats & even a parakeet, named Tweet, who was also very devoted to dad. Tweet became part of our misfit family of strays kind of like the way Lucky came about, one cold, rainy day in November while he was out deer hunting he heard & saw something fluttering about in the trees, once he got close enough he realized it was a parakeet in dire straights. He calmly gathered him up in his jacket to warm him & keep him dry deciding obviously that hunting was now being cut short. He looked around trying to find out where he’d come from with no luck, assuming he’d flown out the door of someone’s house. He brought him home so that we could nurse him back to health, waiting to see if anyone was missing him. Fast forward thirteen years of joy & laughter brought into our lives by one quirky little bird who constantly screeched “You’re gonna burn your beak!!!” whenever dad drank his coffee!!! I don’t know who benefited more from all the animals them or us, but I wouldn’t trade one second of any of the craziness for the world!!! Can’t wait to check out this new book, it sounds fabulous!!!:)

  5. When I was a teenager we had a Scottie named Duncan and a mixed breed named Whitefoot (we called him Foot for short). Foot was an older dog and was losing his eye sight. Duncan would lead Foot out into the yard and back to the house when they were done. I always thought that was so cool.

  6. Our dogs, Bear and Tex, who sadly are no longer with us, were very polite and never begged at the table… until we were finished with dinner. Even then they were polite.

    We had a glass table top and when they heard the ‘clinking’ of the forks on the now empty plates, they would saunter over to the table where we were sitting – get under the table at our feet. And look up at us through the glass and of course, then we would give them their treats. Asparagus was one of their favorites!

  7. My dog Hannah was enjoying a toy and apparently Sophie wanted it. After whining and nosing Hannah to no avail, she went to the window and began barking as though there were someone out there. Hannah ran up to see what the commotion was, and Sophie came back and stole the toy. Whoemever says dogs aren’t capable of subterfuge was SORELY mistaken.
