This was a very unique book. I enjoyed every chapter, as I learned about each new dog that passed through Gary Paulsen's life. All of them true stories, of course. I do like the author's writing style very much, and it's amazing how descriptive the book is.
I'd pick it up and read it again!
I loved each & every one of these dog's stories.

Gives readers a real sense of how the man looks at these animals."--"School Library Journal" * "Here's a treat to make Paulsen fans sit up and beg for more....
