From Library Journal:

O'Hurley, host of the NBC program National Dog Show, champion of Dancing with the Stars, and an Emmy award-winning actor (for his role as J. Peterman on Seinfeld), reflects on the many life lessons dogs teach us. He interweaves memories of his youth including childhood dogs, his first love, homecoming games, and acting dreams with reflections on the simplicity of a dog's life. In such chapters as "Never Miss a Nap" and "Own Your Own Fur," he offers lessons he's learned from his own dogs, Betty and Schoshi. Unlike John Grogan's Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog or Jon Katz's A Good Dog: The Story of Orson, Who Changed My Life, this breezy and lighthearted look at dog behavior has no sad endings or sentimentality. Although O'Hurley's love for dogs is genuine, the recollections of his youth are somewhat uninspiring, and there really isn't much new here. An optional purchase.
