Elsa was born a dog. I was born a human.
Things have changed.
by Rhoda Lerman

In Rhoda Lerman’s newest book about her dogs, we get to know Elsa, a very large, black and white Newfoundland, as she struggles to be human, to speak, to act, and to think as we do. Because of her profound and intense relationship with her humans, Elsa has become a person-dog, happily living her life on the interface between human and dog. Lerman, who is always trying to understand her dogs and join their universe, has struggled to become a dog-person. Elsa and Lerman understand each other.

“I love what Ms. Lerman says about dogs [in Elsa Was Born A Dog]! Her deep love of dogs come through and she asks all the profound questions that we dog people are always asking: just who are these animals/people?
– Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson author of When Elephants Weep; The Emotional Life of Animals  and Dogs Never Lie about Love

In the Company of Newfies
by Rhoda Lerman

2022: Currently out of print but we plan to get this classic back in print!

“Extraordinary…exceptional…unusually lyrical writing, observations beautifully expressed…(a) truly unique voice. Now the best news: In the Company of Newfies is, indeed, being republished. A true collector’s item.”
– George Berger, Publisher, AKC Gazette

“In The Hidden Life of Dogs Elizabeth Marshall Thomas asked what dogs want. Rhoda Lerman has come up with a different answer. I love both books because the authors have so much in common.”

“This is a book that you can read and share with your dogs. You can share it with your husband too, although he may not be as much fun.”

Eleanor, A Novel

“…The novel has informed all of my dramatic renderings of Mrs. Roosevelt…”
— Jean Stapleton”

A reality truer and more haunting than the most scrupulous notes of the biographer — distinguished historical fiction.”
