Description

Kac Young never imagined that after a lifetime as a cat person she would fall in love with a tiny rescue dog named Talulah.

She took her home to the Californian woodlands to live with her partner and six cats. The stories of life as a first-time adopter describe Kac’s progression from slightly shell-shocked beginner to savvy, adoring dog guardian.

Entertaining and informative, you’ll see how Kac consulted with behaviorist Lisa Tenzin-Dolma on all things dog-related, and will get Lisa’s observations and guidance on a wide range of subjects following Kac and Talulah’s many stories.

Get started on the right food (or paw) with your new dog, or get reacquainted with your longtime friend!
