The Dogs Who Came to Stay




By George Pitcher


This is one of my favorite dog books. I was so moved by it that I wrote the author a letter. I keep his response to my letter in the book.

Two middle aged bachelors shared a home near Princeton University, George Pitcher being a professor of philosophy at Princeton University. One day, a wild stray dog finds its way into their backyard. She is looking for a place to have and hide her puppies.

After much patience, love, and earned trust this mama dog became the regal and dignified Lupa. Her remaining pup became known as the goofy but gentle Remus, a clown of a dog.

Filled with stories of how two dogs changed the lives of two aging bachelors, the book celebrates how dogs enter our lives in just the right way, at just the right time. If we allow them to, they can even better our lives in unexpected ways. Dogs give from the heart, unconditionally.

This humorous but sensitive book has photos and drawings to compliment the stories. You will love Lupa and Remus, and George Pitcher. I have read this beautiful book several times, and will again.
