In the Company of Newfies book cover

“Most dog books focus on training, breeding or problem dogs.  Few tell you what it is really like to live with a dog.  Lerman conveys a true passion for her animals.”
—Jeffrey Mousaieff Masson
     (Author of When Elephants Weep)
Los Angeles Times

“Extraordinary,…exceptional…unusually lyrical writing, observations beautifully expressed…(a) truly unique voice.”
—George Berger, Publisher  AKC Gazette

“Will touch a chord with dog lovers.”

“A tender and elegantly written account of a relationship between humans and animals.
Lerman has captured that sweet relationship with her gift for words.”
—Alix Madrigal San Francisco Sunday Examiner and Chronicle

“Newfies is a bravely told love story, a story of intimacy and union, passionately and exquisitely rendered.  A visionary and provocative book, Newfies allows us to feel what we need to feel about our dogs while instructing us about love, communication, commitment and hope.”
—Mary Ellen Marusa

In the Company of Newfies is my all time favorite book.”
