From the very beginning, Orson was a misfit. Like all border collies, he needed to work. But since there weren't any sheep available for herding in the New Jersey suburbs, Orson instead tried to corral school buses, garbage trucks, and skateboarding kidns. So Katz pulled up stakes and moved to a farm in upstate New York. There, Orson improved dramatically--until the day he started nipping people.

Since you like dogs, you may enjoy this story by best selling author Jon Katz about his "once in a lifetime dog."
  mcmlsbookbutler | Jan 2, 2017 |
I enjoyed this book for the most part - literally until the last couple of chapters. John Katz is a likeable guy for the most part and a good writer, even if he's a skeptical, cantankerous old fart. Unfortunately, I just had to read this book until the end. I should have stopped, but I thought maybe that since there were several chapters after the low point (Spoiler: He has Orson put down), that there must be some writing at the end to at least make up for that part of the story. Nope. He went and got another dog six weeks later (a lab) and is happy as a clam with his perfect dog family minus the troublemaker. I spent the last thirty minutes of the book daydreaming about John Katz rolling down his favorite hill or having a terrible ATV accident and having the epilogue written by his handyman after finding the manuscript. Halfway through the book I had gone ahead and added the rest of Katz's dog books to my "to read" list. Nope. Nope. Nope. ( )
