The Tale of a Waggish Dog
A novel by

"This beguiling book - so light in the hand and so long in the heart - chronicles the full, exuberant days of Max, canine extraordinaire....engagingly told by Paul Bennett...the story is Max's, but around Max radiates a marvelous portrait of an extraordinary marriage. Within this charmed circle, as with this wise and funny book itself, the lessons learned are the deepest - instinct, kinship, pleasure - and the hardest - loyalty, trust, endurance, and finally, grace. A gem of a book."
Deborah Pope, Author, Teacher - Duke University

"We read ourselves in the eyes of our animal companions, but none, I think, go as far as Paul Bennett in showing how our companions read us. Paul has honored us again, in a world seen fresh, inhabited by animals of mutual need and disparate skill...."
Clark Blaise, Author, Teacher - University of California, Berkeley

"Each of us who has treasured an extraordinarily talented dog as a family member has tried to tell others about our special experience. Few have succeeded with as much style and grace as Paul Bennett in his tale of Max."
Richard G. Lugar, United States Senator
