Charming and hilarious, IT'S OK TO MISS THE BED ON THE FIRST JUMP is more than a mere celebration of man's best friend. In this lighthearted and reflective exploration of how dogs have served as some of our most valuable and enlightened teachers, well-known and well-loved actor John O'Hurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) shares lessons learned from his life with canine companions, including: Every 15 Minutes Is a New Day; When One Person Stops Petting You, Move On; and You're Only as Big as You Think You Are, to name a few. '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?' Both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, IT'S OK TO MISS THE BED ON THE FIRST JUMP is an ideal gift for the dog lover in your life.
