I received a copy of Dog on Earth from the author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are, of course, my own.
Dog on Earth
Publication Date: December 2, 2020
Length: 279 pages
During a late-career sabbatical, a journalist begins having thoughts filled with wisdom and knowledge. Since both of those qualities are well beyond his scope at this muddled point in his life, he believes the thoughts are coming from his dog, Elmo. The two then embark on a series of capers, investigating neighborhood mysteries while discussing topics including dogs, cats, sex, evolution, reincarnation, and puddles.
J.D. Miller is a longtime newspaper writer/editor who now writes books, plays, and magazine stories.
My Thoughts & Takeaways
Dog on Earth by J.D. Miller is definitely unique. I’m glad the author reached out to me because I don’t know that I would have ever come across this book on my own. Despite my love (err, obsession) of dogs, I had never thought to seek out this kind of book.
If you’re anything like me, you have daily conversations with your animals and if anyone looks at you like you’re crazy, you say … what? he understands me.
Well, what if you actually could communicate?
Miller covers life’s existential questions, reflections, and musings through a comedic route – his dog. And, not only is this book fun and unique, the writing, dialogue, and prose is fantastic.
