You Tell Your Dog First…
About the date you just had…about the questionable results of a medical test…about the good and the bad…about everything.
For years, award-winning author Alison Pace was a dog person without a dog. And then, she got Carlie—a feisty and fluffy West Highland white terrier. She could weed out bad boyfriends with a sniff of her button-black nose and win the hearts of lifelong friends with an adoring gaze. Suddenly, Alison had a constant companion and confidante, who went with her on long morning rambles in Central Park, on trips to the country and the beach, and on her search for inner peace, love, and happiness. Through Carlie, Alison found herself connected to the world as never before.
With her trademark warmth, wit and humor, Alison shares her stories…the tales of a dog person who found her dog.
