When Steven Winn and his wife, Sally, finally gave in to their only child Phoebe's pleas for a dog, they adopted a scraggly terrier mutt from a local animal shelter. The new family pet, Como, turned out to hate men - especially the author - and proved to be a cunning escape artist. Traumatized, single-minded, and exceptionally clever, Como was bent on breaking Winn's sanity and self-respect, his bank account, and his heart. An international sensation, Come Back, Como is the story of one man's hilarious and poignant quest to win the trust of a dog who wanted nothing to do with him. With humor and pathos, Winn describes the maddening but ultimately rewarding effects Como had on his family; the misadventures, ordeals, and terrifying events he and his dog endured together; and the greatest lesson Como taught him: that loving a dog can make us more human.
