Living With Mochi

Gemma Gene's adorable comics celebrate fur-parenthood and the extreme love you experience when you look into your dog’s  eyes. If you are never alone when you go to the bathroom, are forced to share your food, and find your life ruled by a sassy fur ball, Living With Mochi is the perfect book for you.

When architect-turned-cartoonist Gemma Gené first met her pet pug, Mochi, she felt as if time stopped. This dramatic moment and her adoring relationship with the rambunctious pug led the architect and visual artist to begin chronicling her adventures with Mochi in a series of incredibly cute webcomics that have steadily gained a social media following of half a million loyal readers. The comics chronicle Mochi’s life from puppyhood to jaded adulthood, featuring subplots of unrequited dog friendships and Mochi’s jealousy of his two dog-brothers. Readers will enjoy and relate to this humorous tale of a sincerely loyal friendship between one grumpy pug and his adoring owner.
