Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
We didn’t need a dog. We had a perfectly nice dog named Shakespeare, a big, loveable, huggable shaggy black mutt from the pound. And a cat, a beautiful tabby named Isis. We were a family—me and the dog and the cat and Mikey, my youngest child and the only one left at home. His siblings were grown and gone. His father was just gone. When I finally scraped up the money to buy a little house, Mikey reminded me that it was time for the puppy.
“What puppy?” I didn’t do puppies.
“‘When we get a home of our own,’ you said. You promised,” insisted Mikey.
You promised—the two words in the English language most likely to bring a single mother to her knees.
We didn’t need a dog. We certainly didn’t need a beagle. And we most certainly didn’t need Freddie.
There are bad dogs–and then there are bad beagles.
In this hilarious and heartwarming memoir, single mother Paula Munier takes on the world’s worst beagle–and loses every time. She tries everything to fix Freddie–but nothing really works. As her youngest son grows up and prepares to leave her soon-to-be empty nest, Paula’s worst fear is that after more than thirty years of raising kids, she’ll be left all alone–with Freddie.
