Teddy is unhappily single in L.A. In between sessions with his therapist and dates with men he meets online, Teddy has debates with his dachshund, Lily, who occupies his heart. Unfortunately, he is also able to communicate with the "octupus" attached to Lily's head, which is soon revealed to be a metaphor for Lily's lethal cranial tumor. As Lily's condition worsens, Teddy faces off with the "octopus", engaging it in a battle of wills that takes on epic proportions. An exceedingly authentic, keenly insightful, funny and ardent tribute to the purity of love between a pet and its human.

I loved listening to this book. Steven Rowley captured what it is like to have a dog. And not only that but the heartache that you go through at the end of their life-- when is it the right time to let them go. It made me laugh (Michael Urie can really speak Dachshund) and it made me cry, and it made me feel lucky to have had the great pets that I had.

Make sure you have tissues nearby as you listen to Ted and Lily walk down a path neither of them wants to be on. Fantastic narration by Michael Urie, who speaks perfect dachshund.
