Are you looking for a love story? How about one that speaks of transformation and renewal? Trust? Then, this is the e-book for you.

Jon Katz's latest publication describes the beautiful relationshiip between two beings - one is human (Jon), the other canine (a border collie named "Rose"). Rose possesses something quite special that Mr. Katz's cherishes and shares with his beautiful imagery that brings laughter and tears. The stories are ones of amazement and, in the end, gratitude.

Available in both standard and enhanced formats, I initially purchased the standard. Ten minutes later, I purchased the enhanced version because I wanted to meet this wonderful family. The photography is splendid. The videos allowed me to visit Bedlam Farm and "walk" with Jon as he narrates the pieces throughout the e-book. You need not be a dog-lover to appreciate the uniqueness of this bond. I adored this book. It's as simple as that. I believe you will, too!

This story about Rosie is unbelievable. What an amazing dog! This writer was so fortunate to have had this beautiful expierence in his life. Dogs seem to have a sixth sense when it relates to people, they can tell the good from the bad. I write this from my own expierence with my dog.
If you are a dog lover, you will enjoy this book.

    The only reason that I'm not giving this all 5 stars is that it

    The only reason that I'm not giving this all 5 stars is that it is too short. I would have loved 2x as many pages, much more detail of Rose and all her encounters, adventures and her life. Jon takes us right into their lives and you can practically hear, smell and see the sheep and pastures. The emotions will be very familiar to all of us who love dogs and live with them. His frank and forthright writing of his personal struggles and triumphs are a joy to read and you appreciate his common sense and no-nonsense approach to taking care of business.

    A great book for dog lovers

    Rose was a special dog that would do anything for her owner, no matter what the job was. This was written not only for Rose, but for the owner and finding himself, and learning the many lessons that dogs can teach us without our knowledge until later on in life. A great book to read and to help all of us find the real value of a dogs love.
