Summary
A charmingly edgy memoir about an out-of-control, ninety-five-pound Bernese mountain dog named Hola; a high-functioning alcoholic named Marty; his wife, Gloria; and their attempt to keep a marriage together in spite of apparently long odds. Marty knows he's in trouble when a somewhat less than scrupulous breeder passes him a roly-poly ball of fuzz-allegedly a purebred Bernese mountain dog- that seems to be purring. Or he would know, if he weren't knee- deep in malt liquor and peach vodka. And so enters Hola, who misses the socializing stage by about a mile. She tackles strangers. She chases after fried chicken containers and Volvos and drug dealers. Worst of all, she frightens Gloria, Marty's improbably patient wife, who, finally fed up with the dog and with her husband, packs up for the Catskills. Startled into all kinds of sobriety, Marty throws himself headlong into the world of competitive dog training. Or he will, as soon as he teaches Hola to sit. Bad Dog is a hilarious, acerbic, utterly unleashed story about recovery, and about winning back years of squandered trust. But mostly, it's about a dog who really, really likes cheesecake
