This review is from: Wonder Dog: The Story of Silverton Bobbie (Paperback)
A great little read about a true wonder dog. The author does a terrific job at creative non-fiction, taking licence to fill in the gaps with descriptive detail, based on what could be gathered from those who cared for Bobbie on his long journey home. A nice companion to straight forward non-fiction accounts of this dog's arduous trek home. Makes me want to take a trip to Silverton, to see the monument.

You should come to Silverton Oregon to see the memorial, and to Portland to see where Bobbie's house is at the Oregon Humane Society. Rin Tin Tin even came when they had the big celebration of Bobbie's life!

Jamie are you related to Vades Crockett? I was sorry to hear of her passing a few years ago. She made the Bobbie book a reality. I would meet her a couple of times a year at the Bobbie events and I will never forget how gracious she was to lend the Bobbie scrapbooks for my research.
