More About the Author
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 ten 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. She also consults for Lightside Games, and directs the West Coast Christian Writers Conference.

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.
Heart wrenching and heartwarming, the anthology contains my new all-time favorite title, "Running with Roselle" and you will have to read the story to find out why. Phrases such as "back from the dead", "fresh start", "belief in second chances", and "new every morning" kept popping up in my mind as I inhaled each compelling account, so let me suffice it to say that this collection will uplift anyone looking for a new leash on life. As a word trivia geek I've often considered it no small coincidence that God spelled backwards is dog, and that if this wondrous animal can mirror divine traits of faithfulness and courage at a moment of dire peril, or exude patience and cheer in everyday life, then perhaps we can do so too. Earnestly presented, Flory's book reveals doggedness as a vital component of that most heavenly attribute known to mutt or man - unconditional Love.

"Dog Tales" is a book with a series of stories regarding dogs, the good things they tend to do, the mischievous inborn nature that sometimes gets them into trouble, and how they really are man's best friend. I really liked the mini-stories about the dogs that the author chose to write about. I found that the author is a very good story teller with a likeable descriptive style. I found that she described details in a manner that was visually realized through her choice of words. A good talent. A good book. And I recommend it to all, especially dog lovers.
Susy Flory takes these and more stories, seventeen in all, and tells them skillfully and lovingly. Her attention to breed detail is helpful and informative for a non-dog-owner such as myself, and her love of dogs and her sensitivity to the owners' emotions through their experiences is refreshing.
I highly recommend this book.

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.
