    Amazing True Story

    This book will touch the hearts of many readers along with true dog lovers. The devotion of animal to owner and owner to this amazing animal is a true testament to friendship and trust. This book is a 'must read' and I have had the great opportunity to meet this author, after I lost my own Yorkie, and the passion is just as real in person as it is in print. I can only hope he publishes a sequal to this grand story.

    His Memory Lives On

    After meeting the author face to face I can say without question, the memory lives on of this and other War Dogs. A memorial is being erected this year in my town in honor of Smoky and others. Send this book to loved ones now serving or ever served in the military. It will lift their spirits and yours.
