Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe

With an ingenious plot device that is truly novel, this book is a hoot. You have to wade through the first third with a heroine that is so abused by everyone around her that it's difficult for her to sustain the novel UNTIL the dogs enter the picture. No spoilers, but if you've read this book you know what I mean. Funny and touching, although some of the characters stretched their credibility to the breaking point.
