The place is ‘Meadowbrook’ - a five-acre former corn field surrounded by thirty-six acres of hardwoods, bordered by two creeks, in north-central North Carolina. The central players are a pack of distinctive, engaging dogs who share an intimate relationship with each other, and with the author and his wife. The personalities, antics, and character of the Meadowbrook gang reveal to their human partners previously unimaginable richness and mysteries of life, and cause them to forever change how they pursue their lives.

This fast-moving tale focuses on a unique group of dogs, whose playfulness, inventiveness, loyalty and courage capture the hearts of their human partners, and create the spirit of their home place. At Meadowbrook, human and dog lives thoroughly intertwine as they share humor, tragedy, adventures, and love. The incredibly varied and wholly entertaining ways that these dogs approach every aspect of life immerse the reader in a world that few humans or dogs have been privileged to know.

For the first time, readers see what it is to be a dog living a truly “dog’s life.” This is a one-of-a-kind, true story that speaks from and to the heart – human and otherwise. With abundant humor and drama, and supplemented by a cast of colorful ‘extras,’ Dogs of Meadowbrook grips the reader’s attention early and doesn’t let go.

"The Dogs of Meadowbrook" is a touching & down-to-earth story of Skip & his wife Mary and their relationships with their family of dogs in a beautiful countryside setting. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about each dog's personality, their daily experiences & interactions with each other & insightful lessons they learned from their 4-legged companions. It made me laugh and cry. I recommend this book to anyone who loves & respects animals. 2 thumbs up or should I say, 4 paws up!

This book is the consummate "Dog Lovers" read. The author's style is such that he evokes all the emotions: love, joy, sadness, humor and even anger at the cruelty of some humans. By the time I finished, I felt as if I had personally met and known each of these fantastic creatures. I especially enfoyed the image of Ruffy strolling through the grocery store to the meat counter. As an avid dog-lover, I agree that each one is unique and William Schwenn captures all their characteristics and elaborates so beautifully. I also felt like I came to know the humans, Skip and Mary, and decided that they are people I'd enjoy knowing. 2 thumbs up from me and I'll want to know if there's a sequel coming up. Kathleen

This is one of the best books I have had the pleasure of reading. It is a fantastic story that portrays how each one of the Dogs of Meadowbrook played, worked and lived interactively with each other as individuals, within a pack, as well as how they formed individual bonds with their human partners.
It is not the ordinary book about dogs and their owners, but rather tells the unique story of a couple and the experiences of so many facets with their dogs whom you will get to know and love. The story takes you through the life of each wonderful dog and how so very special they were and how the bond between them so naturally gave so much pleasure as they nurtured their way through life on their beautiful home with the Dogs Of Meadowbrook. While the book brought tears of sorrow, it also brought tears of joy knowing each one of their Dogs Of Meadowbrook had and will forever have a special place in their life. As a reader and dog lover, it was a fantastic journey and I know others will love it.

This is one of the best written and most touching books I have ever read. If you love dogs or think you might want to try to understand them, then this is the book for you. This gives the reader an insight to the mind and personality of dogs that we lay people might not pick up on. A great book for the whole family
