Do you love dogs? Did you love Marley and Me by John Grogan? My Life with George: What I Learned about Joy from One Neurotic (and Very Expensive) Dog might be for you. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named George changes the lives of Judith Summers and her young son, Joshua as they recover from the loss of two close men in their lives. George is “as time-consuming as a full-time job and as expensive to run as a ferrari”. He is accident prone and suffers every ailment known to dog, running up vet bills to the unbelievable amount of $25,000 (thank goodness for pet insurance ), but the love George gives cannot be measured. This sweet story filled with tender moments and hilarious tales will win your heart.
