More About the Author

Susy Flory is a New York Times best selling author who grew up on the back of a quarter horse in Northern California. She took degrees from UCLA in English and psychology, and has a background in journalism, education, and communications.

She first started writing at the Newhall Signal with the legendary Scotty Newhall, an ex-editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and a one-legged cigar-smoking curmudgeon who ruled the newsroom from behind a dented metal desk where he pounded out stories on an Underwood Typewriter. She taught high school English and journalism, then quit in 2004 to write full time for publications such as Focus on the Family, Guideposts Books, In Touch, Praise & Coffee, Today's Christian, and Today's Christian Woman.

Susy is the author or co-author of seven books, including So Long Status Quo: What I Learned From the Women Who Changed the World, as well as the much-anticipated 2011 memoir she co-wrote with blind 9-11 survivor Michael Hingson, called Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero. Thunder Dog was a runaway bestseller and spent over a dozen weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Susy lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband. She has two grown children, a bratty terrier named Sprinkles, and a crazy ex-racehorse named Stetson.

"A dog is a man's best friend." Susy Flory, a dog lover herself, has written a wonderful book, Dog Tales, featuring stories of dogs who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in taking care of their people and other animals. The stories are endearing and a wonderful reminder of how our Creator made them to be a human's companion. They illustrate the truth of the quote mentioned above. Here are a few of the dogs featured in her book:

You will discover the courage of Roselle, a seeing-eye dog who happens to be afraid of thunder storms, yet courageously led her blind owner out of Tower One of the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Black Pearl is a dog with high energy and intelligence. She came to be one of the rescue dogs in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.

I think my favorite story is about Brutis, a 125-pound golden retriever, who saved his owner's grandchildren from a coral snake.

There is something special about the bond between a dog and its owner. They love unconditionally and will do just about anything for the one that cares for and loves them. Whether you are a dog lover or not, these stories will warm your heart and will give you more of an appreciation for these four legged animals.

It was a fun read and the companionship that dogs give to their caretakers. I have never had a dog but
can see the people that do are so connected.

I believe this is an excellent book for a few reasons: It is a good compilation of short stories (5-6 pages each), all are almost uniquely different (including one horse story), they tap into the emotional aspect, show above extraordinary results from the dogs and people, and they are all true! I have already purchased 20 copies for my friends and family.
