Charming and hilarious, ItÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is more than a mere celebration of manÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs best friend. In this lighthearted and reflective exploration of how and why dogs have served as some of our most valuable and enlightened teachers, well-known and well-loved actor John OÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂHurley (Seinfeld, Dancing with the Stars) 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; and YouÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂre Only as Big as You Think You Are, to name a few.
ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂDogs, after all, have pure hearts, trusting natures, a zest for living, noble characters, and an ability to take things in strideÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ, writes OÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂHurley in the bookÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs introduction. ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂThey can be counted on, and are pleasant companions. They know whatÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs important, always. How many humans do you know about which you could say the samepÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ.
Both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, ItÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump is an ideal gift for the dog lover in your life.
