    Jilly is at her best when waxing lyrical about nature This is an autobiographical read about the ten years she spent as a dog walking resident of Putney It lacks the racy nature of her novels but is a delicious read and I loved itYou will love reading about Putney and Richmond parks as her prose takes you through summer heatwaves to a frosty snow covered common I also loved all the poetry that is scattered through the text

    Charming punning and gossipy this book deals with the ups and downs of life with boisterous dogs as well as life in a small community in this case the dog walking denizens of Putney This is the second time I have read this book the first when I myself have dogs and the bonding effect of having a dog is well captured in this book as is the fact that walking a dog does give you time to contemplate the world around you This is a well observed and well written slice of Iife

    This is now very much a period piece it makes the 1980s seems a long long time ago The descriptions of the natural world on these semi urban commons are lovelyBUTI cannot believe what an irresponsible dog owner this woman wasis Her dogs were undoubtedly loved but her lack of discipline led to the deaths of several cats and a dog and to two of her dogs being put down This is inexcusableI was also annoyed about seeming fecklessness with moneyThere are lots of similes so many that I became fed up the word like started to really irritate meI shall only keep the book because I know the area well and it is in a way a slice of my life but not the dog part

    In the past 1980s or so really enjoyed J Cooper sexy romps I read on audio and there were beautiful descriptions of nature through the seasons This was very informative and mood lifting What drove me mad as a life long lover of dogs was her years of dog ownership with no control or training and didn't think other dogs bitten needing switches or cats been killed She remained to think other people's views were wrong and none of her dogs needed castration or training or keeping on the leadFelt like ringing the Rspca ¡ 😁
