A funny, profound book about the enduring wisdom of dogs,
from the host of the enormously popular National Dog
Charming and hilarious, It’s Okay
to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is more than a mere
celebration of man’s best friend. In this lighthearted and
reflective exploration of how and why dogs have served as
some of our most valuable and enlightened teachers,
well-known and well- loved actor/show host John O’Hurley
(Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) shares lessons
learned from his life with canine companions, including:
Every 15 Minutes Is a New Day; Never Miss a Nap; When One
Person Stops Petting You, Move On; A Cold Can of Meat Is
Still a Feast; and You’re Only as Big as You Think
You Are, to name a few.
“Dogs, after all, have pure
hearts, trusting natures, a zest for living, noble
characters, and an ability to take things in stride,” writes
O’Hurley in the book’s introduction. “They can be counted
on, and are pleasant companions. They know what’s important,
always. How many humans do you know about which you could
say the same?” At once poignantly moving and laugh-out-loud
funny, It’s Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is
a book for the dog lover on everyone’s holiday shopping list.
