In the interest of honesty, I admit to two facts - the author is a close friend and I am not a dog person. Due to the former, I own a copy of this delightful book. This is not a page-turner….it is a bed-side book that provides wonderful inspiration for dog lovers of all ages. Each entry provides information about the breed(s), a peek into the life of the animal and its family, and lots of love.

Through the excellent photography and informative stories, the reader gains understanding of the world of dogs and their protectors. Dog owners may find new ways to enjoy or employ their pets and well... as a non-owner, I'll admit to marking a couple of pages for future reference - it's impossible not to love dogs after reading this collection.

A great gift for the dog lover in your family or anyone contemplating acquiring a new pet!

In a book full of delightful surprises, "Surprise on Mt. Airy Street" is among my top favorites. That dogs are wonderful is no surprise. Lisa Loeb has such a talent for uncovering the unique gifts of so many dogs is remarkable. Time and again she bravely walks up to total strangers so she can gift her readers with totally unexpected tales and photographs that help to fathom the many ways that dogs enrich our world. If you love dogs, buy this book. And of course it is the perfect gift for any dog lover in your life!

I enjoyed the variety of stories, from humorous anecdotes of dogs riding elevators to greet customers to poignant stories of animals helping those in need in nursing homes or as other service dogs. The stories had me smiling. It's easy to read just a story or two, so you can take you time and savor each. As a dog lover, but not an extreme dog lover, I enjoyed the many facets that dogs play in our lives. The book seemed very well researched. The photos are also great, showing the warmth and relationship between dog and owner. This would make a great gift to the dog lover you know.

Great book about how dogs help us in so many ways. The stories are easy to read and written by Lisa Loeb, known as the Extreme Dog Lover. Photography is excellent. This is a perfect gift for those who want more from their animal books than just pretty photos - but this book has those also.

"...by making friends with dogs...this positive connection often leads to other positive connections....Dogs are the connection-the ambassadors-between humans."

Lisa Loeb shares stories of how dogs have forged relationships with and between humans through heartwarming and captivating looks into the lives of many different dog and human relationships. Having a dog that has helped me as an ambassador, I could connect with many of the stories easily. I enjoyed reading about all of the dogs serving in different roles, from service dogs that help people who are disabled, K-9 working dogs, and search and rescue dogs to companion dogs who like to share their owners bed and wonderful dogs that still need to be adopted. Wonderful pictures of dogs and human companions fill the book.

A wonderful read for dog lovers in the vain of the 'Chicken Soup' series.
