Richard Cohen Doesn't Really Want to 'Kill the Dog' Despite Title of New Book

But Jasper the Aussiepoo gets on his nerves

How to make peace when the pets in your marriage create tension.  For I Want To Kill The Dog.

Richard Cohen has a love-hate relationship with Jasper in his humorous new book, 'I Want to Kill the Dog.' — Corbis

Richard Cohen does not like his wife Meredith Vieira's dog, Jasper — and he's pretty sure Jasper's not a fan of him either. Don't take the title of his new book, I Want to Kill the Dog, too seriously, though.

Cohen tells us he's not actually going to facilitate Jasper's demise. His tempestuous relationship with Jasper the Aussiepoo is the basis for a funny look at modern family life and the strong kinship dog owners develop with their four-legged companions.
