Has a special dog left a legacy for you and others to remember?
Has the loyalty and commitment of a dog inspired you?
Do you have favorite childhood memories of your dog?
Has your dog helped you to see someone's true character?
Has your dog taught you something about courage, judgement, changing course and setting off in new directions in life, loyalty, or just live and let live?
If so, then this is the book for you. It contains heart-warming true stories written by women about the friendship,the lessons learned, the bond of love existing between them and their dogs. Some tales are humorous, some will break your heart. There is "Barney," devoted, goofy, kindhearted; and "McDuff," connecting with the elderly and sick; and "Lady" abused and abandoned, later rescued and re-habilitated still capable of trust, who transforms her new human friend by demonstrating confidence and faith.
The Andersons have unleashed yet another fine book in their arsenal of true animal stories. You may find your own experiences reflected in "Dogs & The Women Who Love Them." I did.
Highly recommended reading. You don't have to like dogs to be astonished by the almost human qualities they reflect in these extraordinary uplifting canine tales.
