I need a pug in my life
Clara: The Early Years: The Story of the Pug Who Ruled My Life by Margo KaufmanOnce a pug owner, always a pug owner -- so thought Margo Kaufman, having shared her home with the lovable snub-faced imps since her college days. But it was not until the 1992 arrival of Clara -- petite, imperious, whip-smart, and seductive -- that Margo found what it meant to be a pug parent: a pug could rule her life, and perhaps the world, as well.Clara, the Early Years is the hilarious story of how a glossy-black, twelve-pound package of canine energy took over Kaufmans heart and home, while charming the pants off the rest of the world. From commandeering the dressing rooms at Saks (where a personal shopper offers Clara Evian in a cut-crystal bowl), to accompanying Kaufman on her first book tour, to an appearance on Prime Time Live (where Kaufman played a supporting role), the indomitable Clara establishes herself as a world-class personality, a star of the first order. But there is one event Clara cannot upstage, as Kaufman and her husband travel to Russia to adopt an infant boy, and all of them learn new meanings for parent, family, and home.
Full of the uproarious observations and brilliant insights that have won Margo Kaufmans books and commentary legions of loyal followers, Clara, the Early Years is a laugh-filled portrait of a singularly memorable pet.
