Everybody Died, So I Got a Dog: 'Will make you laugh, cry and stroke your dog (or any dog)' -Sarah Millican [9781473671386]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The funny, heart-breaking story of love, family and overwhelming loss which led one woman to find hope and healing in the dog she always wanted.

'We would never be a dog family. People with dogs represented every aspect of domesticity that seemed right and functional. We represented everything about family life that was curious and unpredictable.'

Growing up with the Deans was a fabulous training ground for many things: ignoring unpaid bills, being the most entertaining guest at dinner, deconstructing poetry. It was never home for the dog Emily craved.

Emily shared the lively chaos with her beloved older sister Rachael, her rock. Over the years the sisters bond grew ever closer. As Rachael went on to have the cosy family and treasured dog, Giggle, Emily threw herself into unsettled adventure - dog ownership remaining a distant dream.

Then, tragically, Rachael is diagnosed with cancer. In just three devastating years Emily loses not only her sister but both her parents as well.

This is the funny heart-breaking, wonderfully told story of how Emily discovers that it is possible to overcome the worst that life can throw at you, that it's never too late to make peace with your past, and that the right time is only ever now, as she finally starts again with her very own dog - the adorable Shih-tzu named Raymond.
