Not just about the dogs

This is such an interesting story. Steve Kotler went from being dogless to dog rescuer all because of love. When his girlfriend states that he needs to love her dogs as well as her, he jumps in, well, with reservations, but he is quickly won over by four legged furries...
This is such an interesting story. Steve Kotler went from being dogless to dog rescuer all because of love. When his girlfriend states that he needs to love her dogs as well as her, he jumps in, well, with reservations, but he is quickly won over by four legged furries that warm his heart. He gives up everything in Los Angeles to follow his love and his heart to New Mexico where he helps found a sanctuary for dogs. It is wonderful that this man found his purpose in life through dogs. People underrate the fulfillment that dogs (and other pets) can bring to someone's life. Any one who love dogs and memoirs are going to find this heartwarming story a true pleasure to read.

I absolutely love chihuahua's and really expected a different read. It did have chihuahua's in it as well as other dogs; no problem (I like all dogs) but for the most part it was just VERY HARD TO READ!!! I could only get thru 100 pages & then I had to give it up. Was hoping it would get easier to read, but it didn't. When I started enjoying a "story" he would then stray off on subject matter thst really didn't interest me OR really add to the story; and it dragged on forever!! I really wish I could give a better review, but I have to tell it as I see it.

    so so

    i expected more of animal rescue and their adventures with the dogs they rescued. But each chapter became more psychobabble. Some of the psychology was interesting but to me it was too much.
