Publisher's Summary

The hilarious and heartwarming account of Miranda and her life changing dog, the inimitable and most lovable Peggy.

Hello dear audiobook browser and welcome to Peggy and Me. The story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy.

Some of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I'm sold. In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.

Others of you may be thinking: 'a book about a dog, how totally mad, she must have officially lost it.' In which case I completely understand. For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion. The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement.

But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds. It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration (dog-min), and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me. It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.

Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me....

    "Not for cat lovers"

    I loved Miranda Hart's first book "Is it just me?" I wanted to love "Peggy and Me" but sadly somewhere between the two offerings, stardom has taken over and this doggy tale has just gotten a wee bit too, what I call, self indulgent. As with any moments of navel gazing it's normally best done in private. There are moments of greatness like coining the word "Poo-calypse," but all in all there aren't enough to make up for the deeply soppy moments of canine inspired self discovery. Full disclosure, I am a cat person. I'd like to say I'm an all animals person, but some of the needier, whiny canines I've met tend to make me think I'm now a confirmed cat person. Cats are better than dogs. For those who already know that, you probably don't need to bother picking this up to confirm it.

    "Great!!"

    If you like dogs and stories about dogs this is a must for you. While I enjoyed this thoroughly and would listen to it again, I am not a dog person. I did in fact listen to this because I love Miranda, so while I wasn't let down and the dogcentricity of it all was done with her typical humour, I did enjoy her first book more.

    "Very Miranda ... but there's more!"

    This reflection is laugh-out loud funny in many parts, but also tender, honest, witty and brave. It takes the reader on a gentle roller coaster of the sublime and the ridiculous of loving your dog. Along the way, Peggy becomes a canine beacon of hope, resilience and enthusiasm for life. Miranda Hart's narration is just what you'd expect - warm, engaging and personal. Poo-calypse has now been added irrevocably to my vocabulary!

    "<3 Peggy"

    Enjoyed some genuinely laugh out loud moments with this book - felt a little mad laughing to myself listening via earphones while others nearby had no idea what was so funny. ( fortunately these were family members who know I'm not totally crazy ;) )
    This is an enjoyable heartwarming story, totally relatable for a fellow dog owner who has been known to talk to her pup and take her out for coffee at a local cafe.
    Nice to have the story told by Miranda and I was a little disappointed when the tale came to an end.

    "Brilliant, funny and wonderful"

    I'm a long time lover of Miranda Hart as a comedian and this book has only strengthened my love and respect for her.
    The tone at the beginning, as she shares the story of how this book began, gives an all to familiar reality that, even someone as successful as Miranda can, and does, live with the same misfortunes as the rest of us.
    Peggy and Me is funny, wise and an important look into the life and love of a woman and her trusty companion. Peggy is one lucky pup and Miranda, equally lucky to have found her to share life with.

    "Not A Comedy"

    I was looking for a light and funny book. I love Miranda's comedy and was hoping for a book along that line. No such luck. I am two hours in and so far we have explored a disastrous burglary, childhood disappointments and pet death upsets and a long detailed discussion of elephant abuse in Thailand. This list just names a few of the unhappy topics covered. Really not funny at all. Wish I could have not heard about the elephants.

    What was equally troubling was the narration. Hart speaks very quickly and softly--which at times was hard to understand. Even worse, during the reading there was a dog barking in the background. This was a distant barking that kept me thinking that one of my dogs was in trouble somewhere. Distracting and odd.

    I can't continue with this listen as I am not sure what distressing thing will come up next and I can't stand all the barking. Giving up.

    "Heart full of love"

    I've been yearning for a dog for many years. Not being able to own one for various reasons has left a nagging hole. I don't know where it came from all of a sudden a few years back. Listening to Miranda has only widened that hole into a full on ache of loneliness. This book was funny, heart wrenching and lovely. Thank you for giving a reason for this ache Miranda. I'm a crazy dog lady and I own a cat.

    "Delightful!"

    I have the actual hand held book as well! I love reading along with Miranda, letting Miranda lull me to sleep at night enabling me to wake after a lovely night's sleep. Miranda's ability to read with different voice and expression as only she can do is nothing short of painting a picture moreover her written word. Being able to be read to by Miranda herself is like being read to by My Dear Reader Chum summoned up at any whim! What other friend would do as much? "Kristie, will you read for me?" She says no every time. MDRC-every time, she says yes.

    "Hilarious and Heartwarming"

    I may be a bit biased because I love Miranda Hart's TV program, but I will admit that I was hesitant to listen to this as I am... a cat person. Even after Miranda's cat vs. dog "interlude" that I very much disagreed with, I loved this story. Her anecdotes are hilarious with their junior high humor (I too cannot say the word "ball" without giggling) and their genuine honesty. I am so glad I chose the audiobook format for this read because 7+ hours of Miranda's voice was such a joy.

    "Heartwarming and such fun"

    Discovered Miranda Hart as Chummy in Call the Midwife and became interested in her as a comedian. She narrates this audiobook both as herself and as Peggy, her diva of a dog. There are some laugh-out-loud moments as well as genuine bits of wisdom.

    "Lovely"
    What made the experience of listening to Peggy and Me the most enjoyable?

    I loved the book. I have read all of her books but this one gave wonderful insight as to what what going on behind the scene during the "Not going out" years through to the master piece which was "Miranda", as well as made me feel, as often Miranda does to people, wish she and Peggy, the Pegster, was my friend. Many of her feelings as she realized her love for Peg were ones that understood from my heart. For, I as well have a wonderful little four leg best friend who brings me massive joy. I have 4 children as well but the book was not about Miranda and her kids now was it? teehee. (stop judging! read the book you will understand )


    Have you listened to any of Miranda Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! I also loved "Is It Just Me?".


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened every day as I walked. It was like taking a long walk with a good friend!<br/>

    "A truly wonderful book"

    There was a moment of hesitancy as I went to press the purchase button for this book on audible, would this book be as good as Miranda's "is it just me" book, which I thoroughly enjoyed, however, I needn't have worried as I write this review I realise that there are reasons for Miranda Hart's magnificence. The way Miranda expertly describes her struggles, the effort and the realisation that being different can be beautiful is pure genius. The way she tries and fails and tries again is inspiring to me because I am the same ... although I'm neither a tall beautiful woman or a brilliant writer, a TV / acting sensation or a comedian I can honestly say that I have been engrossed and loved every minute of this book.

    "Non dog lovers need not apply!"

    This is a glorious story of the dog human relationship told in Miranda's inimitable style. Even the dark, lonely scary parts of the story are given a comical skew by her off kilter view of the world. Peggy's canine contributions bring the tail (you're welcome! 😉) to vibrant life, immediately conjuring a crystal clear image of the little pooch skittering about and snaffling treats. It also provides an interesting alternate account of Miranda's rise to fame. One word of warning though. Unless you are a proud possessor of the dog goof gene, don't bother as this is (as, to be fair, suggested by the title) shamelessly dog centric and credits Peggy with providing the answers to life, the universe and everything. This, of course, is not true as it is obviously my beloved mutleys that are responsible for that! My advice, buy, make a mug of hot chocolate, listen and enjoy.

    "Wonderful comfort-listening for dog-lovers!"


    This quick quiz will tell you whether you'll enjoy this download: Do you a) talk through your dog in a doggy-voice? b) ever dress your dog in a puffa jacket or a specially purchased outfit like Captain Hook or Wonder Woman? c) give your dog a conical Happy Birthday hat to wear on his/her special day? d) send your dog a postcard or phone him/her (yes, really!) when you're on holiday? e) share your cute doggy pix on social media? f) love your dog more than many or even most of the humans in your life? If you've answered YES to one or more, you'll love it!

    Miranda's little Peggy came into her life when she was at a very low ebb indeed, and this warm, moving, funny tale told in her inimitable way is the story how the fluffy little creature became the love of her life and taught her many valuable lessons about life along the way. Peggy wasn't love at first sight - there were early days when Miranda struggled with dog ownership, not to mention the 'apoo-calypses' before Peggy was house-trained. But Peggy wriggled her little self into Miranda's heart and she's not ashamed to admit to the mad-dog-woman antics she enjoys with her, or the deep comfort and healing she's derived from Peggy's devotion and dependence, sometimes just lying beside her feeling her breathe. (If you answered yes to f) above, you'll entirely get this last one!)

    Miranda is consistently funny on a whole range of topics from the superiority of dogs over cats to the categories of dog-walkers she encounters. She muses on animal funerals - who would you invite? The neighbourhood dogs? Apart from all the funny bits, Miranda also invites us into her soul - all her struggles, fears and disappointments and analyses how Peggy's trust and love has brought her to greater understanding of herself, no longer in a dark abyss, but out in the sunlight.

He moved on to Heaven 3 years ago and I am now a mother of 2 children, love them very much. But as I listen to your book I missed my days as a crazy dog spinster and being with dog.
