G.P. Putnam's Sons I underestimated the dog. He wasn’t just a dog. He was negative energy, a competitor for my husband’s attention, a nuisance, a bad roommate, a total traitor. —Mia STEPDOG is a comedy of errors about woman versus dog.  The funniest part is that this story is true. Mireya “Mia” Navarro has written a wonderfully funny, sentimental story about her and her rival.  She is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist with The New York Times .   She’s traveled the world and covered many difficult topics from immigration to 9/11.   She has won numerous accolades and taught university.   Nothing gets under Mia’s skin.   Well, nothing but the dog. It’s a hate-hate relationship from the start.  Mia finds the man of her dreams, with the dog of her nightmares.  She knows that marrying a man from a different culture will be a challenge—she's Catholic; he's Jewish; plus, he has kids which will also be difficult. Stepmom sounds horrible in any langua
