Gary Paulsen’s My life with Dogs is hysterical

I have read this book a dozen times, but never listened to it. It was actually fabulous as a listen too. He is such a dynamic writer and so vivid that you feel right along with him. When reading ~ especially out loud ~ one gets stuck due to laughter- you can hear Gary trying hard not to laugh as he continues on. It is the best!!!!
Would love to hear him read Winterdance!!!

absolutely beautiful

Amazing book about his life and his dogs. I didn't expect to cry but damn, some if those stories were beautiful. I love dogs and I love the outdoor and I love being out there with a dog. He captures that perfectly in this book.

Great feel good dog stories!

Great stories and I liked that the author was the reader, there was a lot more emotion behind it. The only issue was the volume range, I had the volume up but still some times the ends of sentences trailed off and you couldn't hear them.

A short humorous story about various dogs.

I found it funny and sad. Tells of mans and dog's special bond. Worth a quick listen.
