    Good read

    Good stories of good dogs, not as fully developed as they could be but good nevertheless.

    A good, fast read.

    Some stories are better than others. Some of them were just cheesy.

    The author of "A Dog and His Boy" needs to put away the thesaurus.

    If the author of "In Her Golden Eyes" was so poor after her divorce then why didn't she move into her parent's home and get a real full time job instead of working as a freelance writer? This woman seemed so needy. She also said she lived in a "neighborhood where we had to worry about our lawn mower being stolen" yet she leaves her 2 daughters alone and the dog gets out and gets run over. Also, why wasn't the 6 year old in school?

    The better stories were "A Prince among Dogs", "Showing Up at L/J Stables", "Cindy, a Dog Who Listened", "Puppy Love", "A Shepherd", "She Knew", "Nikki", "Bo, the Dancing Dog", "And You Think Your Dog's Smart?", "A Real-Life Lassie", "Ace, a Companion Extraordinaire", and "Charlie".

    My absolute favorite story was "A Dog Named Blue".

    This is a fabulous anthology containing twenty-eight real life escapades of loving canines starting with Dr. Prince being there for his adopted family including the cat when they were ill. The entries are fun to read for dog lovers though the quality of the writing varies as some are over written and some boring, but each reminds the audience of their ¿significant other¿. Intermingled throughout are ¿paw¿ quotes from celebs. For instance Anne Tyler provides the first one on how dogs view people: ¿¿ we comeback from a grocery store with the most amazing haul-chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we are the greatest hunters ¿¿ my Chauncey, who flew with me like the dog in Snakes On a Plane does for sure as she has her knife and fork ready when we come home with food. Readers will think of their ¿Real Life Lassie¿ mine was Max, a Toto with psychotic fears except if he thought I might be in danger whereas my spouse might choose flight, unrequited loving Max chose fight. Then there is Charlie who arrives at the house when Pixie is dying reminds me of when we took Deuce for his first vet visit the same Rusty went for his last. Readers will find their own personal Jack London Buck tale amidst this heartwarming collection as pets constantly show there ¿For the Love of Man¿ and woman and children. Clearly this compilation of true life canine-human relationships targets dog lovers as M. Acklan puts it ¿¿ dogs give us everything. It¿s the best deal we ever made¿. Pooches make us better people whereas the latter is rarely true.------------- Harriet Klausner
