Go behind closed doors and discover the secret lives of some of the most devoted pet owners, whether they’re feeding their dogs home-cooked meals or leaving Animal Planet on all day to keep their pets company.
As a round-the-clock animal nanny, Lindsey Grant shared a bed with countless dogs, cooked custom meals for exotic birds, broke up brawls between animals and spouses alike, weathered end-of-life care for beloved companions, and catered to the often obscure needs of her charges—and the bizarre demands of their owners. She offers a hilarious inside look at the pet care industry and the lengths people will go to for their furry friends.
With a cast of unforgettable characters, from a toast-loving cockatiel to a gassy greyhound, Sleeps with Dogs is filled with tales of pets and those who love them.

She holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and English from Mills College in Oakland, California. Though she lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for nine glorious, sun-drenched years, she originally hails from Atlanta, Georgia. You’d know she’s a Southerner at heart by her liberal use of the word “y’all” and her belief in casseroles as a form of damage control. She currently lives in Zurich, Switzerland with her husband and their cats, where she cooks often, tries to speak German, and blogs about her attempts to assimilate.
