Read in August, 2011

Loved this book about the famous movie and T.V. dog. Well written and completely entertaining. I would imagine the history was well researched and documented, and so the book was mostly about the owner and how he related to Rin tin tin, and his life, which was quite interesting. I never really got the sense of who the dog was (difficult as that would be to convey to a reader, I do understand that) and although I did not want it to be a "Disney story", I wish there would have been a way to accomplish that. A book that succeeded at that was "Crazy Good- story of Dan Patch". However, I would recommend reading this book, especially if you grew up watching Rin Tin Tin.
