Jon Katz should stick to writing about dogs I liked thoise parts of this book that were about the dog but the parts about HIM and his nutty girlfriend now wife Maria were boring and annoying Really Jon you would divorce your wife of 35 years for this nut with a vicious dog At least that is the way he portrayed this woman I thought she was borderline autistic from his descriptions of her I'm married to an artist so I know they can be a little whacked but really Maria was beyond whacky A uilt maker who makes uilts from old scraps of material but she hasn't done anything with her art for 10 yearsbecause Well because she thinks people won't think it's good And she doesn't really like to show her art to people But of course a true artist is not going to much care what anyone else thinks of her work A true artist is compelled to make art God what a couple of whiners Even the dog Frieda Maria named her after Frida Kahlo So am I the only one who wonders why she spelled it Frieda not Frida A tiny nit picky point admittedly but still why Yep Jonny boy stick to writing about dogs I don't care about your personal life At all

Jon Katz ✓ 7 summary

The Second Chance DogJon was having a tougher time charming Frieda to his side Even after many days spent on Bedlam Farm Frieda still lunged at the other animals ran off into the woods and would not let Jon come near her even to hook on her leash Yet armed with a singular determination unlimited patience and five hundred dollars’ worth of beef jerky Jon refused to give up on Frieda or on his chance with MariaWritten with stunning emotional clarity and full of warm yet practical wisdom The Second Chance Dog is a testament to how animals can make us better people and how it’s never too late to find love. It illustrates the problem of rescuing a dog physically but not mentally and I wish the author had said about how giving the dog a home isn't enough if you don't make it comfortable in the world that is my main problem with the bookAlmost two thirds of the book is devoted to the author and his relationship with the owner of the dog FriedaI liked the parts and musings about the dogs and the relationship between the people and dogs in the book I was not particularly interested in long musings about how being an artist means that you cannot pay your bills I was rather annoyed at both of the main human characters one being manipulative and the other mistaking solitude for independence I probably would have liked the book of the humans got their shit together during the book but no some minor changes in habits but little real behavioural changes Almost the opposite of the dog story Showing how it can be easier to rescue a dog than to rescue yourself and other people
