Ackerley discusses taking Tulip out to the restroom.

My Dog Tulip is a bittersweet retrospective account of the fourteen-year relationship between a female German Shephard and author J.R Ackerley. In vivid and sometimes startling detail, the film shows Tulip’s often erratic behavior, canine tastes, and Ackerley’s determined efforts to ensure an existence of perfect happiness for Tulip.

My Dog Tulip was originally published in England in 1956. It is now published in this country by the New York Review of Books in their Classics Series and is the series’ best selling book.
