Not for the faint-hearted or for children
on November 25, 2012
The stories in this book really capture the amazement, joy and love we experience with our dogs. As the German actor, Heinz Rühmann, said, "You can live without a dog, but it's not worth it." I had read the reviews so I was prepared for some sad stories, but some of the events described in this book are very disturbing and have left some very unpleasant images in my mind. It contains stories, not only of abuse to animals, but also to human beings. The reverent and even spiritually promising title of this book may attract readers who are not looking for quite so much upsetting reality in a book about pets.
