Editorial Reviews

Review

"A touching book about a wonderful dog."
--Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, bestselling author of
When Elephants Weep

"The beauty of this small but mighty book is Vanderbilt's ability to find the right words to describe the incredible charisma and boundless joy of his golden retriever and the love they share."
--
The Sunday Star-Ledger, Newark

"Golden Days is not only an eloquent tribute to a cherished animal but a love song whose tune will resonate in the minds of pet owners everywhere."
--
The Cape Codder

"Once someone has had the good fortune to share a true love affair with a golden retriever, one's life and one's outlook are never quite the same again. A warm afterglow remains that lasts a lifetime. The author is fluent in that language."
--Betty White

"This well-written reminiscence will appeal not only to dog lovers but also to naturalists and those interested in Cape Cod."

From the Inside Flap

en eyelashes, a fondness for Vermont cheddar, and a worn-out slipper she brought to those she felt sure needed it. From the time she was an eight-week-old puppy, Amy put herself in charge of the Vanderbilt family. She accompanied her human pack on sun-filled sailing expeditions on Cape Cod Bay, long beach walks, and brisk surf swims, and led them on uncountable jaunts of adventure and discovery. And on those rare occasions when Amy had to be left behind, she would lapse into a sulk worthy of the best Hollywood leading ladies.

Tenderly told, with absorbing asides on the picturesque coastal landscape of Cape Cod,
Golden Days is the story of a unique friendship that illustrates the invaluable lessons of life and love only a dog can teach us about ourselves and the world we share. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
