This story chronicles the first year of a veteran with his guide dog. Guide Dogs for the visually impaired are truly remarkable animals and the bond that develops between these two can be extraordinary. Total trust and unconditional love are the corner stones of their relationship. This book follows that development in a light hearted, tongue-in-cheek manner from the dog's perspective. Alyce La Gasse from OR wrote; Move over Lassie, Ace the Guide Dog Detective is on the job now. With a unique combination of humor, pathos, and ingenious dog-dialog, Adams cleverly conveys his very special relationship with Ace. Through a series of shared adventures with Ken, 'the blond', and the hero of the story, Ace, the reader is introduced to the world of those who have limited or no vision and their challenges. There is no self-pity in Ken's story . . . in a very sweet and delightful tongue-in-cheek presentation; he shares his love for his dog, their dedication to each other, and his joy in having Ace as a guide, a partner, and a friend. Phillip Blaney from CA. wrote; I really liked this book. A good story line and I loved the way he drew the reader into the story. A good read for all ages, a dog lovers delight. Rich Holland from PA. wrote; I just finished reading your book. Without wanting to sound patronizing, IT WAS GREAT!!! What a dog! I really and truly enjoyed reading it and will recommend it to all. Jim Aker from VA. wrote; I loved the book. Good for all dog lovers and others as well. I would recommend it for young and old alike. I look forward to his next book.

About the Author
D. K. Adams had a successful career in Sales & Marketing when he discovered that the blunt force trauma he suffered while serving overseas in 1962 was causing the loss of his vision. After 29 eye surgeries he lost complete vision in his left eye and was declared legally blind in 2009. With the help and generosity of the people of our great country, the Veterans Administration, and Southeastern Guide Dogs, afforded him the ability to embark on a new career as an author. "Ace Guide Dog Detective" is his third book and the first in the Ace series chronicling their life experiences together.
