(EBOOK DOWNLOAD) [Drinking with Miss Dutchie]

Rable outside my kind of weather actuallyThroughout the book the author truly transports you to another place all the while revealing to you his deepest fears internal dialogues and struggles with addiction He describes how the introduction of this animal allowed him to view himself in the helpless animal and how this led him to realize the follies and the seductive powers of his additionsAnyway for fear of spoiling it I ll stop here and not venture further into the parts of the book that moved me the most I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to delve deeply into the thoughts and feelings of a man as he continually learns to navigate his way through this lifeAt first I thought that those who were not moved by this book must never have suffered the loss of a favorite pet or struggled with addiction But after further reflection there are so many other areas of this book with which I could relate and reflect on my own life s ourneyOkay Therapy is over Time to get back to work Drinking with Miss Dutchie was mostly about the author s life and his struggles with alcoholism and cigarette use I was thinking the book was going to include stories about the dog but overall it focuses on the author It was relatively entertaining though seemed depressing as well The book wasokay Frustrating because the writing was much much better than the story the subject matter and some of the author s creative choices allowed the book to be All dog stories are sad Eventually But this story was downright dreary In the very beginning at the end and all throughout Dreary might be putting it lightly At several points it is downright bleakI appreciate insights into an author s writing process But this book contained a little bit too much Much of the book involves the author talking about writing this book It kind of gave me vertigo How can you write about a book you are writing about in the book you are writing as you are writing it Very strange My biggest pet peeve was the author s word choice Clearly he is an intelligent guy but sometimes his vocabulary contrasts significantly with the subject matter he is addressing and the contextual tone And I found some of his choices downright condescending I have an English degree a law degree and received both with honors I have an insatiable appetite for reading and would like to think that I read at a pretty high level If the words you use alienate me I literally had to refer to a dictionary on average probably about once every ten or so pages who exactly are you writing to Who is your intended audience What exactly is the overlap between an audience that would want to read a touching story about raising a dog and an audience that is rolling around with a genius level vocabulary It reads like it was written with an unabridged thesaurus close at handI didn t hate it I didn t The relationship with Miss Dutchie was touching I appreciated the insights into the writing process and I appreciated the author s struggle with the emotional and chemical obstacles that he has overcome Breslin is a good writer I ust didn t love this story But I would be anxious to see his next book particularly if it addressed different subject matter i made myself finish this book it I made myself finish this book It taken me a long time to read it It was very intense especially near the end as Ed described the last 6 months of Dutchie s failing health in detail This was no Marley and Me or The Art of Racing in THE RAIN THIS WAS AN AUTHOR TELLING US HIS Rain This was an author telling us his of alcoholism trying to write a book and taking on a new puppy after never ever having a dog It told of the ups and downs of his disease his relationship with his wife both their discovering the oy of having a pet the agony of losing one and writing his great American novelThe book is written after the dog s passing so you already know the end before you get into the book If you own any pet you know the Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation joys and agonies of having one and can sympathize with him but at times it was so intense I could read no then a page or two at a time Then I made myself read the rest in one sitting Yes it brought tears to my eyes That final trek to the vet s is always very sadI am not sure if the author succeeded in his idea of the book either a catharsis in owning and losing a well loved pet or making the reader feel like they are living this person s life during the 12 years of this dog s life Whichever his desire I felt both.

An author should be careful when he says the book is not about himself This book is only a little about the dog and almost entirely about the author He says it is a memoir but still convinced me he would have something interesting to say about his dog beyond that she was wonderful and he learned from her the things he missed in kindergarten A really wonderful book very honest very heart wrenching and very lovely A book that really describes what is is like to love a dog and the complete loss of dignity that comes with that action and how the love of that same dog back can change a person deeply I really appreciated the honest portrayal of an addict and a depressive the face that he was already thinking about Dutchie dying when she was ust a wee pup was something I could unfortunately recognize in myself Thought provoking and at times uncomfortable definitely sad and yet beautiful Very recommendedPeople are funny about older dogs too As she aged people were not as attracted to her She handled her reduced status with dignity the way she handled every decline and setback sent her wayI have done time in many corporations and I never experienced one that didn t fundamentally try to infa A beautiful meditation on what it s like to love and be loved by a dogOn that lonely walk our mood was reminiscential our attitude grateful Neither of us could say enough about how much Generations and Collective Memory joy and fun and cohesion and increased love and affection Dutchie had brought into our lives This magnificent little dog had brought me out of myself and into life all by herself withust her voracious grasp of how much life itself could be worth living fully when fully aware and not while chemically altered and riven with depressionAnd let s face it it s a memoir that includes a dog so I m not revealing much when I share thisI kept flashing on her grinning even wider and thrashing her tail even harder the second time Bill Perkins entered the room with the big hypodermic clutched in his hand She was ust so happy to see him despite her spine being snapped despite being a paraplegic despite being engaged in taking her last rasping breaths on earth thanks to laryngeal paralysis Right to the end she was magnificent still sucking the oy out of every living moment still savoring the now still availing herself of an opportunity to interact with love and affection with another living being in this case a lethal vet Until her final moments she was still setting an example for me still teaching me how to live and this time how to die April 4 2011 I m on about page 80 toda So far I like it As with Dewey the Library Cat it s also about Ed s life and his personal struggles I like where I think it s headed How a pet can make all the difference in our outlook on life With the help of a beloved pet we can improve ourselvesMay 1 2011I ve read two dog books biographical and one supposedly about a woman and her cats Marley and Me get s 5 out of 5 stars it was the dogs full life in chronological order and the oy at the end was the impact the dog made in stories about him The title was accurateSleeping with Cats got 0 out of 5 stars I couldn t even finish it It was listed as an autobiograhy of a woman s life and her cats throughout that life There was barely a sentence in each chapter about her cats It was about her depression and odd boyfriendshusbands The title did NOT imply thisDrinking with Miss Dutchie might It was about her depression and odd boyfriendshusbands The title did NOT imply thisDrinking with Miss Dutchie might between them as three stars but because of drinking in the title I knew it involved AA therefore it gets 4 out of 5 stars This was a great Story Of How A of how a helped a man become a truly recovering alcoholic I didn t give it a full last star because I am a chronological nut and it felt like it umped around a bit I won t even read a mystery series out of order so that might not bother another person As with Marley Me the redeeming uality of that book was his ending with the great responses to his grief This book was redeemed by the new puppy who came into the family who would bless the family in her own way No matter what I m a sucker for animal stories This was a book I won for the drawings online in Good Reads Well done FTC disclosure I won a free copy of this book via Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway contest ThanksIt s not a spoiler for me to say that the author has to euthanize his precious black lab Miss Dutchie at age 12 because he tells us himself on the second page of the book That does.

Drinking with Miss DutchieN t make it any easier to read about it though when he actually describes the process at the end of the book In between is a wonderful read that I couldn t put down Knowing the ultimate outcome didn t make this story any less compelling and in fact may have made it so Breslin does a good ob of interweaving the story of Miss Dutchie s life and his struggles with alcoholism hence of course the title But he really doesn t drink with Miss Dutchie rather she helps him stop doing ust that To find out how you ust have to read itAnyone who thinks this is primarily a dog story might be disappointed it s a story about the author s middle aged life and marriage It reads like a coming of age story in some ways and he is uite open in discussing his struggles flaws idiosyncracies etc This had me at times either rooting for him or wanting to say hey Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets (Paper)) just grow up and deal with it It s almost like reading someone s diary and actually much of it was created from Breslin sournal writingsIf you ve ever had to euthanize a beloved pet there are parts of this book that will make you cry out loud it is very painful in spots However anyone who s ever loved a pet will also be nodding in agreement through much of it as the author describes his deep relationship with Miss Dutchie and how she changed his lifeI was especially happy to find a couple of photo inserts in the book I always find it helpful when reading non fiction or memoirs to be able to actually see the characters who are central to the storyI m a person who looks up any unfamiliar words I encounter while reading Maybe I was ust in intellectual down time while reading this book but it seemed I had to do that often than usual with this book I was stopped by for example contumely dipsomania pitons spalls termagant and gulp sententious and casuistry in the same sentence I m impressed by the author s knowledge and correct usage of these types of words but I frankly think it s a bit distracting to encounter so many of them in casual reading and it s my only real criticism of the bookAll in all I really enjoyed this book Stock up on tissues before you read it There are many reasons people adopt dogs Sometimes it s ust to give your wife something to keep her occupied so she ll leave you as is This one of those stories Of course the author fell completely in love Miss Dutchie his wife s four legged surprise You get a sense of their usual routines feel their oy in each other Although there were a few things the Miss Dutchie did not tolerate well Mr Breslin describes his struggles with alcoholism depression and the challenges of living with diabetes And how insight sometimes comes on four paws with a lethal tail He then describes the pain of her loss after 12 years the empty space How he managed to cope If you ve had a special relationship with a dog you understand The fact I shared my heart with a Labrador mix for 11 12 years may have a bearing on why I liked this book I am also very familiar with both alcoholism and depression how frustration and pain can fill and empty a life Mr Breslin describes incidents that are painful and enlightening He has written a fitting tribute to a frightened little puppy that ust happened to save his life I received this book through a goodreads giveaway I feel so lucky I get a chance to read so many authors novels I might not have found wandering through the bookstore A heart wrenching thought provoking book Drinking with Miss Dutchie is not so much have found wandering through the bookstore A heart wrenching thought provoking book Drinking *with Miss Dutchie is not so much a dog At least that s *Miss Dutchie is not so much a dog At least that s what it seemed to me I see some other reviewers here describing it as a story about a dog and that
