Author Rex Paul Martin and photographer Marcy Merrill capture the humorous and poignant sides of the stories of unusual dogs and their humans. Told in the dogs' own words, you will meet dogs who work in search and rescue teams. You will follow the tails and tales of three lovable rascals who care for each other and their owners in a remarkable way. You will be charmed by a retired greyhound champion racer who wants his owners to retire with him. These are just a few of the heart-warming stories, accompanied by amazing photographs, that will bring back memories of your favorite dogs. Martin and Merrill have traveled the West Coast to capture, in words and images, the startling honesty and compelling sense of humor in man's best friend.

As a Marine Corps veteran of the Vietnam war, I have experienced many setbacks in relationships, over a period of years. Not until I adopted a Chocolate Lab named Hershey did I truly find the unconditional love I was seeking. He came to me, totally unexpected, from the Freedom Tails project, which benefits financially from the sale of each copy of this book. My hope is that more veterans will have the opportunity to know the healing power of dogs, as additional funding becomes available, and the program expands.
The best section is concerns dogs who are being trained by an inmate program. In this part, the dogs take on individual personalities through the narrative, with an emphasis on service to humans. Mr. Martin demonstrates here why dogs are "man's best friend." In this book, then, the narrative serves the separate purpose of informing and deepening the photographs. It's refreshing for a relatively new author to demonstrate so much maturity between Mr. Martin's earlier book on kinship and this one. Altogether a pleasure to read as well as view. I'll eagerly await the same treatment of cats, which I hope will be in the authors' future.
