I have finished Lucky for Me!
My first entry to the challenge!
This book is about a dog that was rescued from death row to become a sea-faring pup that loved to travel on his owners boat! It's a very interesting read and has some funny points, some sad points and is overall a good read!

Bob | 37 comments Just finished "Following Atticus" and loved every page. When author Tom Ryan loses his dog, Max to a tragic accident, he adopts Atticus M. Finch (from 2000 miles away!) Atticus proves to be a very unusual, very special pup. This book is the tale of their first 6-1/2 years together, a heart warming and inspiring journey discovering the wonders of nature and human-canine partnerships in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire. Really enjoyed this a lot!

Jora One of my favorite dog books of the ones that I have read this year so far (I just joined the group) is Dog Medicine by Julie Barton. It is a memoir about a woman [named Julie] who is struggling with crippling depression and adopts a golden retriever puppy named Bunker. Bunker is a beacon of light for Julie. I don't want to spoil too much, but it is sad and then very sweet. Bunker is an awesome dog. Although a chunk of the book is quite sad, I quite enjoyed it: it's very good. Another very good read is
Meet Your Dog: The Game-Changing Guide to Understanding Your Dog's Behavior by Kim Brophey. It is, as the title states, a game-changing guide to understanding your dog's behavior, but it also helps you understand your dog as a living thing. It helped me understand various kinds of dogs a lot more, in addition to what these dogs' needs, wants, drives, passions, and motives are for doing things. It's very well-organized. In addition, I found it great fun to read.
