This is not a book about a dog. I really do prefer my husband - honest. But it's hard to tell the story of our journey into the empty nest, and leave out one particular animal. Which kind of illustrates the problem.
"Susan Morse's second memoir, THE DOG STAYS IN THE PICTURE, is a hectic and hilarious look at growing up and letting go. There's a little bit of Hollywood in the story, and a lot of family, along with love and loss and sickness and health, but most of all there is Lilly, neurotic and loyal Lilly, graceful and fast, with a dramatic past and a future full of hope. Morse has written an extraordinary tale of transition for dog and human both that is not to be missed."
William Lasher, New York Times bestselling author of The Barkeep
"Morse's touching and sometimes laugh-out-loud memoir reminds us that in the act of rescuing someone else, we often end up rescuing ourselves."
Lee Woodruff, bestselling author and contributing reporter for CBS This Morning
"I read this book straight through in one night, and as an avid reader and greyhound rescuer, there are very few books which implore me to finish them in one night. Susan's voice is real and raucous, and I can't wait to read it again."
Claudia Presto, founder of The Greyhound Gang
