Living with three strong-willed, highly individual Dachshunds can be equal parts entertaining, frustrating and rewarding. Just ask Matt Ziselman.

Armed with a fresh, creative voice that is unabashedly cranky one moment and profoundly poignant the next, Ziselman mixes hilarious canine stories, with heartfelt reminiscences from his own life, the results of which is a memoir of illuminating life lessons, courtesy of the three thoroughly Teutonic Dachshunds that he shares his life (and couch) with: Baxter, Maya and Molly. Seemingly mundane moments, like Baxter’s incessant, neuroses inducing staring, Maya’s inexplicable refusal to walk through the front door and Molly’s obsessive compulsive love for a torn and tattered blanket become, through Ziselman’s insightful eyes, a treasure trove of observations that any dog-lover will appreciate. In a market where Americans spend more than $40 billion a year on their pets, this work of razor-sharp wit and quiet tenderness will reach out and grab readers everywhere by the heartstrings and quite possibly their leashes.

Hounded wraps universal insights in hot dog-shaped packages, providing true dog lovers with many knowing nods, honest belly laughs and an accurate, warts and all reflection of the fascination, wonder and love that they have for their dogs.

And that Matt Ziselman obviously has for his.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A lovely, lyrical reminder that dogs aren’t simply our best friends, they’re also our best teachers, if we’re only wise enough to pay attention. Ziselman is equal parts John Grogan and Andy Rooney: Funny, cranky, wise and heartbreakingly human. I can’t tell you how much I love this book!”

    Wade Rouse, author of It’s All Relative

About the Author

Matt Ziselman grew up in Long Island, New York. By the time he was twenty-five, he had worked as a stock boy, cab driver, landscaper, movie theater manager, nightclub promoter, garbage man, stagehand and other assorted, deeply unfulfilling occupations. In other words, Matt was destined for advertising. First as a copywriter, and later as a Creative Director, Matt has been involved in marketing some of the world’s leading brands, where his work has won numerous industry awards. He lives in New Jersey where he tries to keep three Dachshunds, a twelve year old daughter, and one wife blissfully happy, but not necessarily in that order.
