Description
"Has a couple ever gone to war or a spouse moved to another country because a pet came between them? Have two people other than my wife and me ever had such opposing feelings when it comes to domestic animals?" So wonders Richard Cohen, who has endured the beasts his wife Meredith Vieira has brought into the house to "enrich" their lives. Despite her unshakable affection for these furry creatures, to Cohen's mind they have only destroyed the serenity of a once-calm household. "Jasper is not my dog," he writes, "just the family animal, a mutt, to be precise. Jasper is nothing but trouble. But of course, I am the problem. That is how it works in our house." More than a countercultural ode to those weary of the pet pedestal, this hilarious rant is a portrait of a marriage, and of the redemptive power of humor and family when banishing the beast is not an option.

"Drivel. When Master Cohen vanishes some night, Jasper will have a quiet smile on his face and will probably never bark again."—Meredith Vieira, spouse and dog lover

"Cohen's droll sense of humor (and love for Meredith) is to our benefit—he invites us to laugh at his expense, even as Jasper howls, lunges, snarls at anyone approaching Meredith, and 'enriches their life' on the carpet. A laugh-out-loud counter to the dog-book genre by an author whose good humor belies his expressions of murderous frustration."—Shelf Awareness for Readers
