    An Irresponsible Dog Owner Cashes In...

    As a life long dog lover and volunteer involved in golden retriever rescue, I was very disappointed in this book. I am mostly concerned about the message that Sonny Brewer sends his readers about shelters and rescue groups. His book implies that those involved in rescue work are over zealous thieves of dogs. In reality, rescue groups are a tireless group of people who give hope to dogs of irresponsible and sometimes cruel owners. My rescue group saves around 200 dogs a year. These dogs come to us through owner relinquishments, shelters, and as strays. The atrocities that we see with these dogs does make us somewhat zealous, but all in the best interests of the dogs. Had Mr. Brewer installed an appropriate fence (electronic fences are unreliable and unfair means of containment), neutered his beloved dog, and spent time with him, rather than just turn him out to his own devices, he would not have lost his dog (not once, but multiple times). But alas, that would not have allowed him to write a book with a golden retriever on the cover so that he could cash in on his irresponsibility as a dog owner. Mr. Brewer professes his love for his dog and I do not doubt that he does love his dog, but his irresponsibility with his dog and with the telling of this story leave a bad taste in my mouth. Its about time someone wrote a good book about the work of rescue organizations. The money made would be well spent in the continued rescue of needy dogs. Perhaps Mr. Brewer will see fit to send some of the proceeds of this book to the Connecticut rescue that took such wonderful care of his dog.
