The loving bond between man and dog shines like the brightest star in the sky in this book. Professors who have their lives planned out at the university soon find their love for 2 stray dogs and soon to follow puppies warm the heart. A story that will never be forgotten by anyone who reads it !
Great addition to my library.
Lovely Lovely book....nice to read about how wonderful dogs can make ones life. This was a heartwarming story of real people and real dogs.
Very good story that is a fast read and makes a person feel good. A nice change from so many other books in that this one focuses on the real living creatures, human and canine.
I've read this book 10 to 15 times over the years and have given it as a gift to some friends. That attests to how well I like it!
Really, you'll need the kleenex. Maybe even 2 boxes. I had a red nose for longest time after I finished the book. Months later I’ll pick it up & tell myself, don’t read it again for I will cry my heart out, again. Then like the dog lover I am, I’ll take a peek & end up captured by a story that I have similarly experienced w/all my dearly departed best dog friends. This is what it is to be loved & owned by a dog(s). One of my all time favorite books. Thank you George Pitcher for sharing the love! Now I think I’ll go hug our latest 2 rescues: 3 legged, partially blind senior Sugar, master of all in our house including young able bodied, limber, goofy gumby Gordon. The latter we swear is part cheetah & olympic jumper.

I found this book at the book store on campus at Princeton University and was delighted to find the author George Pitcher was on faculty at that time. The book was totally fascinating and I was amazed the author's conveyance of the true feelings between man and his dog. Dogs give such unconditional love to their owners/masters but this book develops the reverse also. The men just love their dogs so unconditionally that my emotions were overwhelming. I cried for a half hour after I completed reading this beatiful story. What love.....taking the dogs to Europe on the QEII, cooking for them, caring for them in their old age. These men are true animal lovers. I wish Mr. Pitcher would write more about this subject. Absolutely one of my all time favorites and I read at least 100 books a year.
I love this story, not just because I'm friends with George but because I see how he is with his old girl Carla and I can just picture how it was then. When I read the book, I was staying in his home and would occasionally go to the places named in the book, the tool shed, the great pine tree, the golf course....
