From the Author
I loved working on this book, which was inspired by learning just how amazing a dog's sense of smell is while working on my previous book, "Dogs on Duty: Soldiers' Best Friends on the Battlefield and Beyond." Thanks to the internet, I was able to locate sources for this book all the way from Afghanistan to Nova Scotia, including Great Britain, Australia, and many U.S. states along the way.
