Overview

A charming and hilarious New York Times bestseller about the enduring wisdom of dogs, from the host of the enormously popular National Dog Show

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 exploration of how and why dogs serve as some of our most valuable and enlightened teachers, well-known and well-loved actor/show host John O’Hurley 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
•You’re Only as Big as You Think You Are

“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 must read for dog lovers everywhere.
