Chris Brooks grew up surrounded by animals. As a little girl, her best friend and guardian was a dog. Growing up, nothing changed. Over more than twenty years, she has adopted or rescued a pot pourri of dogs, from a three legged terrier to a ten stone Rottweiler. This is the story of her journey through life with some of the mutts and mongrels who have shared it; from the tranquil to the timid, from the serene to the certifiable. Today, she lives in rural Spain with her three current dogs, cat and partner. She finds time for writing between working on her Mediterranean garden, renovating her Spanish finca, and perfecting marmalade.

The Long, The Short and The Tall: Life with Rescue Dogs by Chris Brooks is an entertaining and comical read, especially in the first second where she talks about how she rescued her dogs. I wish that the latter half of the book were more about the dogs than the author, though I did enjoy her escapades in hostelry. Ms. Brooks is a talented storyteller and I look forward to reading more about her adventures with rescue animals.
