You Had Me At Woof by Julie Klam

Julie Klam was dreaming about getting married and having a family; wondering when she would meet the man of her dreams.  When she meets him he is not at all the tall, dark, and handsome man in her dreams.

Otto is a Boston terrier with bug eyes and a flat face, not exactly handsome,  but definitely a charmer.  Once he is in Julie’s life  and heart she learns about loving and living with another and what it means to be in a relationship.  Otto is only the beginning of family.  Klam does meet the man of her dreams, marries, and has a daughter.

She becomes a volunteer for a Boston terrier rescue organization and through it a foster mom to many dogs.  Dogs of all ages and temperaments become part of her family.  Among them is crazy Hank and sweet loving  Moses and the elderly, Dahlia, who surprises everyone with two puppies.

With great humor and insight Klam tells how her dog family has helped  her become more loving and compassionate.  Through her stories about the dogs who have graced her life we learn that sharing our lives with many different kinds of friends and families  is  important.
