Only

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 1998 - Fiction - 224 pages
It's the chaotic summer of 1968 and newlyweds George and Alice Martin's new family member has just arrived: a somewhat clumsy orphan sheepdog named Only, a pup with definite ideas about what he wants and how he should get it. A sensitive if uniformed observer, Only makes a striking impact on George and Alice's marriage, as he watches the family grow and stray in unforseen directions. In the meantime, he discovers the joys of pot roast, girlfriends, and digging - as well as the perplexities of separations, veterinareans, and cats. But when his Massachusetts yard becomes too small, Only takes the biggest chance of his life - leaving behind his home to explore the promises and pecularities of a much larger world.
