    A dog is man's best friend, right? He is when it comes to Cookie, and Gary Paulsen reflects on the wonderful friendship they shared. <BR/><BR/>Cookie is the lead dog on Gary's team of sled dogs and has been for a very long time. Gary and Cookie have traveled a lot of trails together. They have even competed in the Iditarod. Cookie has given birth to many puppies but always goes back to work. You might call Cookie a working mother. <BR/><BR/>In PUPPIES, DOGS, AND BLUE NORTHERS, Gary Paulsen tells his own story of love and friendship with his canine friend. If the strength and endurance of sled dogs interests you, you will love this book. The road they have traveled is not always smooth sledding; there are plenty of bumps along the way. Children ages ten and up will love to learn more about these amazing dogs and the training that goes into being a successful musher. This is an action-packed adventure and love story of a man and his one very special dog. <BR/><BR/>Climb aboard this dog sled -- you won't ever forget it!

    If you like a story with tons of adventure, sad moments, and detail, this is the book for you! Paulson describes his experience with his dogs in a very rich detailed way. Enjoy reading Puppies Dogs and Blue Northers by the Iditarod racer and writer, Gary Paulson.

    A Great Dog Story!

    The story of Puppies, Dogs, and The Blue Northers takes place out in the snowy woods, while the dogs were running for exercise. The main characters are Cookie the dog and her ower. Cookie becomes pregant by Rex(who also was a dog that belonged to Cookie's ower).The problem is that a terrible snow storm comes up and Cookie is due to hve her puppies and most likely the puppies would freeze since their wet when they come out of the mother, but they can't go ino the house because it is to warm for winter dogs and they would die. Cookies ower built a house out of straw bales and Cookie delieved her seven puppies in there, but the eighth one was stillbon. Read Puppies, Dogs, and the Blue Northers if you like a tear jerking dog story.

    I've been raised by dogs

    This is a great book if you love the outdoors. This book takes place in thje great outdoors of Northern Minnesota. Gary has a sled team and his lead dog has eight pups but one dies 'sigh' and Cookie 'lead dog'is determined to save it. After a while she gives up in grief. Cookie has saved Gary's life a number of times while practicing for the Iditarod. What you read in this book is a true story. I would recommend this book for the more mature level.
