Living a Dog's Life, Jazzy, Juicy, and Me
Author(s): Cindy Adams
The swell of dog love that met Cindy Adams everywhere she went after the publication of her bestseller The Gift of Jazzy made it clear that Jazzy's fans were primed for the next installment. And since, in Cindy's own words, "Yorkies are like peanuts—you can't stop at just one," her decision to bring Juicy into the family gave her ample ammo to do just that. But it wasn't long before her beloved Jazzy—who had become her closest family member and helped her cope with her husband's death—passed away unexpectedly. Cindy was devastated. Jazzy's paw prints had been indelibly imprinted on her heart and nothing and nobody would ever replace him. But as her relationship with Juicy grew, and the loving, single-minded pooch claimed her rightful place in the center of Cindy's lap, she realized that yet again a wise four-legged companion had shown her that "Life is good. Life goes on." With her signature wit, smarts, and taste for celebrity dish, Cindy Adams shares the life lessons she learned from both her saviors—Jazzy and Juicy.
