Real Dogs Don’t Whisper: Life Lessons from a Larger than Life Dog! (and his Owner), is the true story of a remarkable family as told in a unique way by both Kelly Preston, the owner of the household, and her spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso, Mr. MaGoo.
At times tear-jerking, at times hysterical, always enthralling, Real Dogs Don’t Whisper is more than a book about dogs – it’s a book about life.

He is, in his own words, “the alpha and omega of all dogs – in the cutest and sparkiest, most fun-loving package ever.” Ignoring Kelly’s persistent eye-rolling, Mr. MaGoo has forged ahead with this project in an attempt to, as he puts it, “present the facts from a dog’s perspective. In other words, the correct, most accurate, most interesting, only-one-that-
Both Kelly and Mr. MaGoo have determined to donate a portion of their proceeds from the sale of the book to FACE Foundation.
