Once in a Lifetime Dog: My Borisangel Paperback – November 26, 2010
Top Customer Reviews
ONCE IN A LIFETIME DOG, MY BORISANGEL will most assuredly appeal to dog lovers of every kind, but it is also a fine book for those of us who no longer have a dog for one reason or another, allowing all those wondrous memories to surge forth again. And there is a lot to recommend going there - courtesy of both Hildreth and Boris! Grady Harp, January 11
After searching animal shelters and breeders, "Boris" fell into Chantelle's life. He was born in 1995 and was 13 months old when she brought him home. Boris was a very active 146-pound dog and seemed to be as affectionate of Chantelle as she was of him. Some logistics had to be reconfigured for the big boy to sleep and run around, as he loved to do. During the time that Chantelle had Boris she also had a boyfriend who she married shortly, a very active mother and father who shared her love for large dogs, especially Boris, and she taught college courses part-time.Read more ›
Boris, a Russian wolfhound, is the inspiration for Hildreth's memoir as he was her best friend and with her through many stages and experiences in her life. The love and loyalty between Chantelle and Boris is evident throughout this book and the relationship between them and unconditional love is portrayed well.
Hildreth's style of writing is enjoyable to read and is easy to follow. The memories that are shared will have you laughing at some times and crying at others. It is a true love story of the love with human and dog and a pet lover of any kind will truly enjoy this book and will not want to miss!
