There is great variety in the stories told in this book; there are stories about emotional support dogs, cancer detection dogs, dogs that help teach fire safety to children, and even dogs that protect cute little penguins! I loved reading about Hudson, one of the “railroad puppies” whose story I followed so closely back in 2012 when he and two of his littermates were found nailed to railroad tracks in Albany, New York. It also warmed my heart to read about Drago and other therapy dogs that offered comfort to the teachers and children in Newton, Connecticut as they returned to school after the tragic shooting that took the lives of twenty children and six staff members. And who wouldn’t fall in love with Glory the Bloodhound? She’s a real-life pet detective!
Loyal is a fast read but one that can also be savored. You’ll want to go back and re-read your favorite stories again and again. It’s the perfect gift for any dog lover.
There are 38 tales of amazing and wonderful dogs complete with full face photos of the dog being featured.
This is a serious book but also an uplifting book about those wonderful creatures called ‘man’s best friend’ or for many others of us, ‘our fur children.’
It a quick read, but a read, which confirms dogs enrich and enhance our lives in so many different ways. Many times the stories are about dogs who come to the rescue of the humans in their lives, or as true unconditional acceptance of us, that lifts us up and helps us become better selves.
This is a book you can sit on your coffee table for the lovely photos alone. It is also a book you can give your visitors, children, and grandchildren to read. This book can be read and re-read for years.
It’s a great book that reminds us why dogs are an important part of our daily lives.
If you love dogs this is a great book for you. I highly recommend this outstanding read.
