It took me a while to finish this, I gave up and came back to it as a few of the stories were a bit slow and the numerous spelling mistakes were annoying me! But I'm a huge dog lover and the stories were good; the dogs definitely make up for the writing!

Shelves: 2012, couldn-t-finish
There's not many books I can't get into and finish but I am afraid this is one of them.

Great dogs. Wish the writing was as good. Bit like reading someones first draft university assignment- especially the first story. Revisions and editors are great things.

Eve if you are crazy about animals, this is a hard book to finish because the stories are incredibly slow moving. The tales are sweet but ramble on an awfully long time. I find most of the Sunday Times Bestsellers are Granny-type reads; it was a sweet older lady who recommended this to me so it makes sense.

Really enjoyed this.

I'd already read full length books about Treo and Antis, (both books were awesome), so was more interested in the stories of Smoky, Stubby and Tangye. Fascinated by the tales of bravery shown especially by Stubby and Smoky. Hadn't realised there were any dogs in the trenches of WW1.

No dogs commandeering tanks. Realistically I'm not going to finish this!
