Read in June, 2009

** spoiler alert ** First, I'm not a dog person. Second, this book was given to me by a friend in hopes that I might get the dog thing. I didn't.

I have to say that some of Katz' experiences with his four dogs were moving. However, a lot of the book seemed repetitive. I read it in about ninety minutes, it's a very quick read.

My favorite tail (haha) was of Stanley & Julius and the raging river. I loved that Julius never touched water until it was necessary to save his owner... that made me smile. I cried when Stanley & Julius each had to be put down and it reminded me of when my family had to put down our dog Hummus a few years ago.

If you like dogs, then this book maybe would be for you. It is fast to read, just not for me!
