    One thought on “Paws and Reflect: Exploring the Bond Between Gay Men and Their Dogs”

    1. this is not the book I read but is the closest title I cuold find same author The book is available from at a bargain of 1.99, an ebook called IN DOG WE TRUST It s a mystery set in Bucks county, the protag is an adjunct prof he ends up with his neighbor s golden retriever when she is killed What s not to like Neil sent me a copy of the book, and I enjoyed it very much.

    2. My friend Sharon Sakson is a journalist and dog breeder, and one day when she was visiting we sat down and brainstormed a book we could work on together I d just published Mahu, and was besotted with my golden retriever Samwise, and we wondered if other gay men had similar relationships with their dogs.That led to a proposal to Alyson Books, where the publisher was also a dog lover and thought the idea was great I began soliciting gay writers I knew, and Sharon used her contacts in the dog show [...]

    3. A nice little compilation of dog stories Most are cute, some are touching, and one or two will absolutely make you cry I was a bit surprised at the number of authors who chose to buy dogs from breeders rather than go to a rescue or shelter.Writing is uneven, as not all the stories are by folks whose primary occupation is that of writer, but it s not terrible by any means.FUNNIEST STORY My Ph.D In Dachshunds by Stephen KwielchekMOST TOUCHING STORY you will cry The Girls by Victor J Banis

    4. I must say I was expecting something better There is nothing wrong with the stories, but most of them are not well written True, that may be because most of the authors are not writers, but unfortunately, without good writing, even a good story is hard to tell

    5. Disappointing I was so intruiged by the topic, essays about gay men and their relationships with the dogs in their lives But most of the essays were boring and or not well written The Girls by Victor J Banis was the big exception beautiful piece that brought me to tears.

    6. Many of the stories are endearing and some pull at the heart strings The writing is not particularly strong the editing hit and miss.
