Turin, in the eighties. On an unexpected train trip from Italy to England, Giorgio meets the love of his life. A few months later Giorgio and Margherita get a German shepherd puppy together.
Everything seems perfect until a car accident in the Tuscan countryside shatters this dream. The man survives, the dog dies.
But life must go on and soon Aria arrives, another German shepherd puppy with a connection to the first – and a special talent for attracting trouble.
Just days before Margherita and Giorgio’s wedding, Aria disappears, apparently kidnapped. An epic hunt ensues and via tragicomic episodes and vignettes of Italian life of the time, they embark on an adventure that turns Aria into Italy’s most hunted and famous dog.
This heart-warming, true story evokes tears and laughter and love – human and canine – set against the backdrop of beautiful Tuscan and Mediterranean summers and old, classic Turin. It’s a story dedicated to those who still know how to dream with their eyes open.

Giorgio Allemano was born in Turin, Italy. He completed a Masters degree in biological sciences, spending time overseas specialising in marine aquaculture where he formed his lifelong love of the ocean. After a successful business career, he left Italy and moved with his young family to New Zealand where he now lives, enjoying a beautiful Tuscan style home nestled among native New Zealand bush with wide Pacific Ocean views. Two Dogs, One Wife is his first (and most likely last!) book.
