Years before he played J. Peterman on Seinfeld, danced his way into the hearts of America as the first-ever champion of Dancing With the Stars, and hosted NBC’s National Dog Show, award-winning actor, composer, and writer John O’Hurley was devoted to dogs. From the New England woods of his childhood to the manicured lawns of Los Angeles, he has never known life without the pleasure of a dog by his side.

Now, in It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, a charming and hilarious book about the enduring wisdom of dogs, O’Hurley brings his love for dogs to listeners, exploring with his characteristic wit and warmth personal yet universal lessons learned from a life lived with canine companions.

Within these pages we meet the dogs of O’Hurley’s life, both his and others’, who have served as some of his most valuable and enlightened teachers: Taffy, O’Hurley’s first dog, a dachshund who demonstrated that compassion is best expressed by listening; Betty, a sweet bearded dachshund/black Lab mix, who encourages us that not only will a safety net appear if we’re brave enough to leap, but that every moment has the potential to change our lives; and Scoshi, a wizened Maltese and O’Hurley's loyal companion for fifteen years, who reminds us to always bark the truth, to be grateful for every meal and every moment, to never fear a face-off, and to never miss a nap.

At once poignantly moving and laugh-out-loud funny, It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is a must-read for dog lovers everywhere.
