This is a teriffic book for anyone who has adopted a rescued dog (or is thinking about it). It gives wonderful inspiration!
The book runs the gamut from small to large, pure bred to mutt dogs, and, likewise, captures a good portion of the human spectrum from blue collar workers to celebrities, from young to old, and from those already savvy about canines to neophyte owners.
A trend that recurs in many of the tales is that bringing a new dog home requires work, patience, and understanding (those same qualities these dogs' previous humans lacked). The author provides a number of resources in the appendices for those who want to rescue or adopt a dog or learn more about training and recreation.
Certainly, Ms. Lufkin and Ms. Walker are preaching to the choir in a sense, but one hopes that anyone thinking of adding a dog to his or her family will perhaps check out a book like this one first to obtain a better sense of the rewards and effort that are the inherent, intertwined realities of responsible dog ownership.
I've owned it for years and have read it several times- it never gets old.
I am glad to see they have come out with a second edition, I will definitely be buying it very soon!

This book is ok, but as a Rescue worker, I could write stories definitely more inspiring. Short, easy reader though.Published on February 2, 2009 by WoodysWife
