About What the Dog Said

Life is messy business, and that’s just fine with Brokaw. For almost a decade, she’s been musing on life’s ups, downs and in-betweens, taking readers on a journey filled with laughter, dog hair and even a few tears. From her heartwrenching chance encounter with a soldier in an airport to her confession as an office supply addict, from parenting advice to holiday observations penned by Bandit, her blogging Border Collie, Brokaw has compiled fan favorites into a single volume entitled, What the Dog Said, from WordCrafts Press. Brokaw invites both old friends and new readers to join her as she explores the mundane (but often hilarious) mishaps and adventures of everyday life.

The book has garnered kudos from industry pros. Kelsey Timmerman, author of the books “Where Am I Wearing” and “Where Am I Eating,” said, “Life is funny and packed with poignant life lessons. So is Joanne Brokaw’s “What the Dog Said”…Tickle that funny bone; pluck those heart strings; read this book!”

Barbara McSpadden of “Rochester Woman Magazine” said, “Joanne’s unique ability to find humor in the everyday things that life throws our way is intricately woven throughout this book. “What the Dog Said” is witty, insightful and a true pleasure to read. Her dog Bandit provides his own canine perspective on holidays like Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Christmas, that will make you smile. The final chapter, from which the book gets its name, was my favorite chapter of all. It will touch the heart of anyone who’s ever owned a dog…all I can say is keep the Kleenex handy.”
