Julie Klam was thirty, single, and working as a part-time clerk in an insurance company, wondering if she would ever meet the man she could spend the rest of her life with. And then it happened. She met the irresistible Otto, her first in a long line of Boston terriers, and fell instantly in love.

You Had Me at Woof is the often hilarious and always sincere story of how one woman discovered life’s most important lessons from her relationships with her canine companions. From Otto, Julie realized what it might feel like to find “the one.” She learned to share her home, her heart, and her limited resources with another, and she found an authentic friend in the process. But that was just the beginning. Over the years her brood has grown to one husband, one daughter, and several Boston terriers. And although she had much to learn about how to care for them—walks at 2:00 a.m., vet visits, behavior problems—she was surprised and delighted to find that her dogs had more wisdom to convey to her than she had ever dreamed. Caring for them has made her a better person—and completely and utterly opened her heart.

Riotously funny and unexpectedly poignant, You Had Me at Woof recounts the hidden surprises, pleasures, and revelations of letting any mutt, beagle, terrier, or bulldog go charging through your world.

    " I love dogs and the author rescues dogs so I had to give it 3 stars but honestly I wanted to go with 2. I kept thinking that maybe she was just a bit too involved and if dogs taught her the secret of happiness then why was she so stressed out about them all the time? "

    " How can you not like a book about Bostons? "

    " As a new dog owner, I loved reading Klam's doggy memoir. She's a funny, witty writer. And her work with dog rescue groups read like a thriller.

    " A one day read. I learned a few things about how a rescue team works and got a few good laughs from it. For a person that was around dogs so much she could do a lot better training them. I've had dogs all my life and they certainly behaved much better than hers. "
