No-one ever called Dan a pushover. But then no-one ever called him fast-track either. He likes driving slowly, playing Sudoku on his iPhone, swapping one scruffy jumper for another.
He's been with Clara for four years and he's been perfectly happy; but now she's left him, leaving nothing but a long letter filled with incriminations and a small, white, almost hairless dog, named Doggo.
So now Dan is single, a man without any kind of partner whether working or in love.
He's just one reluctant dog owner. Find a new home for him, that's the plan. Come on...everyone knows the old adage about the best laid plans and besides, Doggo is one special kind of a four legged friend...and an inspiration.

Review by nicx27
Waiting for Doggo is a lovely little read, just a little over 200 pages in length. It tells of Dan, whose girlfriend of 4 years just ups and leaves him one day. She leaves behind Doggo, who she has only just got from Battersea Dogs Home. Doggo is not the most attractive dog but manages to melt the hearts of most of Dan's new colleagues and indeed Dan himself.This didn't turn out to be the doggy story I expected, but more about Dan's life and how it changes after Clara leaves him. It's fun, warm and, most importantly, not sugary sweet. I would never have chosen it if it had not been for the recommendation of friends because I had read a Mark Mills book before and not liked it that much. I'm glad I did read it because it was so enjoyable and I loved Doggo!
