As a single woman living in the city, Louise Bernikow relished her independence. Then a brown boxer came into her life and taught her about love and companionship.

At first, they're not the perfect match. She's never had a pet and knows nothing about dogs. He's got a gimpy leg and a mysterious past. They first meet in the park when she sees a crowd around a police car. She stops and sees a scrawny dog with big eyes gazing up at her. He needs a home, she's told. Never mind that she lives in a small fourth-floor walk-up apartment. Never mind that she's been told she's allergic to all animals. She takes him in.

With wit and heart, Bernikow chronicles their first bumpy year together -- in which both dog and woman become part of the neighborhood's eccentric community of dog people. And she discovers, just as her sister-in-law predicts, that a dog is a good way to meet people (that is, men). But in the end, she realizes that she's already met Mr. Right.
