THE ANIMAL ADVOCATE by Author REBECCA STROUD is a compilation of colums written for a newspaper.

There must be a gazillion books about dogs, cats, birds, all creatures. I am a former K-9 Handler in the USAF (German Shepherd). As a boy, I grew up with a cocker spaniel, born the day after me. She passed at age 14 (people years),then came a Boxer (she was my sister's dog - not mine), then my first German Shepherd. When I enlisted in the USAF, my eldest brother and his wife promised to care for "Major" - when I cam home - my sister-in-law refused to part with him. He had a great home and a great life. Reason for giving you this personal background is that I have always been a dog lover, and I have always 'spoiled' my dogs - so much so that a friend bought me a book, "German Shepherds for Dummies", I've not even opend that book. She told me that my dog was THE Master.

THE ANIMAL ADVOCATE by REBECCA STROUD is THE FOREMOST BOOK AUTHORITY covering every subject of the "Do's" and Don'ts" of being a RESPONSIBLE DOG PARENT, BAR NONE! Although this is a compilation of writings, Rebecca speaks from her heart, and from her years of experience. She writes with a strong conviction of "NO HOLDS BARRED"! IF you are a Dog lover and a dog owner, YOU have to read this book and I strongly suggest you read it with your DOG sitting on your lap (or by your desk, just as I did.) My Rico der Hunter III listened to every word (maybe I could get a job reading for Audio Books), and he seemd to understand and agree with everything Rebecca said. A warning though, the last few pages, concerning EMMA and an ODE TO EMMA will definitely bring tears to your eyes, it did to this hardened old man, but I love her writing.

Unfortunately, Rebecca Stroud is one of the people who will never make the headlines unless she irons out an animal abuser and for that I would never blame her. The good people of this world are ignored in favour of sensationalism, usually involving so-called celebrities, the unsavoury antics of politicians or criminals - not that there is much difference between any of them.

This is a moving, practical book about the responsibilities of those who have animals. Judges and magistrates in Australia, as in the USA and UK - and every country in the world as far as I can see - do not seem to understand or care that the abuse of an animal an appalling betrayal of a helpless animal. Good people have fought for years and many have dedicated their lives to ensuring that penalties are put into place to punish the abusers, but this never happens. Time and again, these people get away with their crimes, leaving the Rebecca Stroud's of this world to pick up the pieces.

I highly recommend this book and hope that somehow the contents will reach those who need them most.

Good for you, Ms Stroud.

The author writes from her heart, without being sappy. Very emotional stories that remind us of the importance of the human/animal relationship.

Rebecca Stroud is The Voice!

The Voice for those who can't speak for themselves -- our furry best friends, the dog.

This collection of her newspaper columns is informative, well written and extremely useful for dog owners and those considering obtaining a dog. Stroud speaks from experience working in dog shelters. She also speaks from her heart and this is a person who truly loves dogs and gives us all some highly valuable advice about ownership. As she observes, problem dogs are usually the fault of the owners, not the dogs. Perhaps it is the owners who should be licensed instead of the dogs.

She wonders if God even may be a dog. Think about it. Just spell the word "dog" backwards. Hmmm!

This book is a bit intense and overwhelming to read in one sitting. It is best read in sections as I did, interspersed with a good thriller novel.

This is a very emotional book that reminds us of our special bond with our best friends and our responsibility to act as good human beings in their care.

Bravo, Rebecca!

The animal advocate is a collection of columns written for a newspaper. Ms. Stroud is direct, to the point of being blunt, but when humans act so idiotically and irresponsibly around their dependent pets, sometimes blunt still isn't blunt enough. Lots of great advice (that you think would be obvious.) There is, however, a lot of evidence to suggest that common sense isn't common, and people need to be told how to treat their pets. Ms. Stroud does a great public service by writing these columns.
