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.
