Now reading “Love at First Bark”!


Julie Klam’s Love at First Bark is truly a love story!  Not the traditional boy meets girl love story but more of girl meets many dogs and always finds room to love them!  Julie Klam shows how the ever changing menagerie of dogs, her husband, and school age daughter deal with the daily chores of dog ownership in the city as well as the very important job of volunteering as a foster parent for dogs looking for their forever homes. 

I was not raised in a dog house but now that I have a dog, I can’t allow myself to look at rescue dogs because I would want to take every single one home!  This book does a great job of showing how a person can love a dog and make it a part of your heart without always making them a permanent part of your home.  Ms. Klam identifies the several stories that have led to her current family of dogs, including the tragic story of Moses, a foster dog who was killed in an accident, to the story of Clementine, a dog who needed some extra attention and love to find her forever home.  While each story could stand on it’s own they also color one another.  She shows that the memories from the last dog shape the love for the current one. 

The book is an easy read, full of cute stories, heart warming moments, and lovable pups.  I think that this a must read for any pet owner, especially those considering a rescue dog or getting into pet fostering!
