Lee and Ted are a young, hip New York City couple living together in New York City whose lives consist of nothing but cool work assignments, long lunches, and evenings out with their equally hip and trendy friends. But, not yet feeling quite equipped for life or love, they're vague about plans for "the future." "Our relationship is like a French movie," Lee tells a friend. "There's a lot of interesting character development, but no plot." One summer weekend, Lee and Ted stop at an animal shelter. They've always wanted a dog, and perhaps if they commit themselves to a loving pet, they reason, their lives will become more rooted. When they meet and fall in love with Rex, a beautiful, lively spaniel of mysterious origins abandoned on Doggie Death Row, they elatedly adopt him and bring him home, expecting to be flooded with doggie gratitude and exuberance. But Rex doesn't romp and wiggle happily like the yellow Labs in Alpo commercials. He doesn't greet Lee and Ted with exuberance or fetch The New York Times. Instead, Rex is unlike any dog the couple has ever known-he clearly loathes his new owners, their friends, their apartment, and New York City. He terrorizes everyone he encounters (even the friendly librarian who lives next door) and runs away every chance he gets. Lee and Ted are flummoxed. How have they ended up with the only dog on the planet who won't offer unconditional love? The couple question whether they can handle this dog, especially in New York City. They can't agree on how to train him-while Ted wants to use the "hand-corrective method," Lee prefers a nurturing approach. Consequently, Rex's behavior doesn't improve much in the first few months. And Lee and Ted's relationship doesn't improve either-they begin to argue constantly. But the twosome refuse to give up on their pooch. As Rex becomes more doglike, they begin to take delight in Rex's antics and signs of progress: his first nonviolent dog-run experience, his first Halloween costume contest, his first kiss. And as they witness their pet's gradual transformation from a wounded, fearful puppy into a confident, free-spirited dog, Lee and Ted's relationship also transforms, as their commitment to the dog seals their commitment to each other. Lee Harrington writes with an open heart, in prose that is witty, insightful, and poignant. Ultimately a love story between humans and animals alike, Rex and the City is a hilarious and riotous romp of a memoir.

1997, ISBN: 1400063019

ID: 3038169

In this rich, humorous, and startlingly original memoir, critically acclaimed author Lee Harrington shares her story of love, loss, dysfunctional relationships, and the shelter dog who put things right. In 1997, Lee and her then-boyfriend Ed were on the verge of breaking up. Money was tight, their careers were floundering (Lee was an aspiring novelist: Ed was an aspiring documentary filmmaker) and their personalities, frankly, did not mix. Plus, they lived in a crumbling, cramped tenement apartment on the Lower East Side--for which they paid more than they earned. Tempers, needless to say, often flared.   Then, on a fateful day in August 1997, they decided on impulse to visit a nearby animal shelter, just to "look at" dogs. In a split-second decision that would change their lives, they brought home a troubled spaniel mix named Wallace. They quickly realized that this dog was more than they could handle--he was aggressive, fearful of humans, untrained and seemingly untrainable.  For the first few months of their new lives with this aggressive animal, Lee and Ted struggled with the question--the reality--of whether they could realistically rehabilitate this dog (they even considered bringing him back biographies,crafts and hobbies,dogs,essays,mid atlantic,pets and animal care,regional u.s.
