Attention all dog lovers! “The Book of Joe: About a Dog and His Man” by Vincent Price is a sweet and funny tribute to Vincent Price’s mutt Joe and the importance that man’s best friend has in its person’s life.
Through his funny and candid memories, Mr. Price captures the greatness and individuality of a good dog and the at times crazy bond and personification that people form with their canine pets.

Mr. Price’s anecdotes about Joe, along with his personable writing voice, allow the reader to feel like they are sitting with the author in his California hills home listening to him talk fondly about his beloved dog. I enjoyed seeing into the life of Mr. Price and how he viewed life with his dogs, especially Joe.
Anyone who loves dogs will cherish this wonderful memoir, and those who claim they are not “dog people” may change their minds!

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
