This review is from: I, Toto: The Autobiography of Terry, the Dog who was Toto (Hardcover)
This heartwarming, charming book tells the real story of Terry, a once-abandoned cairn terrier, who became Toto in the Wizard of Oz movie. Rescued from an uncertain future by dog trainer Carl Spitz, the story is told from Terry's point of view. The "auto-biography" is written in such a charming way we can believe that Terry did write it. The discovery of Terry's scrapbook, kept safe for 50 years in a tin box, in a pile of rubble that would soon become part of the Ventura Freeway, is akin to the magic of Oz. Lovingly created (we assume) by Terry/Toto's "guardians," the Spitz's, we rejoice in its recovery and are glad Mr. Carroll has shared Terry's story with the world. As a Cairn Terrier owner, and grieving the recent loss of a 17-year companion, this book lifted my heart. The Toto in my life, Andy, is memorialized forever. The book inspired me to open my heart and share my life with another Cairn Terrier. If you love cairn terriers, dogs, Toto, or Oz, you MUST read this book. A wonderful gift for any dog lover.
