What do you want so badly that you can taste it—and can you persuade someone to give it to you? That’s the subject of a writing assignment Calvin’s fourth-grade teacher, Mr. Purdy, gives the class. Calvin wants a dog! He reads what he’s written to his mom to see just how persuasive he can be. No way, Mom says: Stella, their babysitter, might be allergic, and Calvin is too irresponsible to care for a pet. Luckily, Mom’s boyfriend, Ledward, is on Calvin’s side. He takes Calvin to a place he calls dog heaven. There Calvin meets the dog of his dreams—Streak. Now Calvin’s got to convince Mom he’s dog-responsible, because he and Streak belong together!

He was ever so small, but he was also such a super little dog, he could do so many tricks and he could jump ever so high.

The Journey to Dog Heaven Once it is given, a dog’s love is forever. Bob was a cattle dog, a dingo mix, and his love for Buddy was like that. When Buddy left the ranch—for an important reason but not one any dog could understand—Bob did the only thing a loyal dog is going to do: he followed his master. He followed him across the night prairie, along the white roads and across the vast stretching plains, until finally he reached the town where Buddy’s last scent slipped away on the wind. This is the story of Bob’s journey to locate Buddy, and the courage of both dog and master, each of them doing what he had to do to find his true way. On this journey, Bob comes to a moment of choice that will forever define him. He will take either the hard path that leads to Buddy or the easy one that will fill his starving belly. The road to Dog Heaven is a lot like our own road, full of hardship and danger and temptation. This is the story of one dog’s journey to that heaven.

Steve Reider is the “doctor of dogdom,” the “pooch prognosticator,” the “wizard of woof,” the “muse of mutts,” and the “canine clarion.” Nobody explains and describes the touching and hilarious intersection between the world of dogs and their human partners like Steve Reider. In his book Somedays You're the Dog, Somedays You're the Fire Hydrant, Steve has captured the wonderful, touching, hilarious, mystical, and precious relationships between dogs and humans in ways that anyone who has ever had a dog will understand. His stories and their accompanying illustrations will make you howl with laughter while simultaneously encourage you to reflect on the meaning of life. Most importantly, you will deeply appreciate how the world seen through a dog's eyes provides a fitting metaphor for our human foibles and imperfections. Somedays You're the Dog, Somedays You're the Fire Hydrant, is without question a funny book. But, when one steps back a minute and considers its’ broader message, it becomes clear that Steve Reider has given us a unique “window” through which we can see the many ways that dogs help to cast a brighter light on the joys, sorrows, frustrations, contradictions, and hilarities of our own lives and of our fellow humans.
