Probably second only to Merle's Door
All of them...
SPOILER!!! When the author made the call to the ASPCA about the dogs she had seen in Annie's foster home!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. Friend or Foe! This book was well written, just emotionally charged enough, gave you the ability to actually imagine what was going on... Made me laugh, made me cry. Was a beautiful story!
Merle's Door, Pukka's Promise, Saving Cinnamon, many, just lovely stories that pulled you in, yet informed you at the same time.
The part of the story I loved was how Rex was inter-woven into all of the Marines' lives and how he brought them comfort, happiness, fun as well as the protection he was supposed to.
What moved me was the dedication that Dowling had to his dog. It was not one main thing, just the sense that he loved and cared for Rex.
Katz has a way of capturing and describing the scenes on his farm with his friends, visitors, family and beloved animals like no one else. I am mezmorized by every book, sad when they are done... And ready for the next.
He makes you forget that you are not listening to the author reading his own work!
All of Katz's books make you laugh, cry and everything else... They are just so real!
The fact that he entertains the thought that animals have souls, when most don't.
It's very hard not to like Katz's stories! They are about animals, real, funny and you just want more and more!
The feeling the author is intonating in his writing. It is sometimes hard to remember that it is not the author himself reading you the book or telling you the stories.
The title does just fine!
The fact that it was a mix of fact and story. (Not fiction but the story of Pukka and Ted). I learned so much from this and the way Ted bonds with the dogs in his life is pretty darned amazing, amusing and heartwarming.
All of them.
The scenes where Burley is stealing the balls from Pukka, AJ and Goo!
That the pet care industry doesn't always have your pets best intrest in mind!
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK! I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE!
It was funny sarcastic, serious, suspensful! I loved it.
Andy of course. He was the funniest of all!
The way he reads the sarcasm is hillarious!
Not really but I really did enjoy it!
I think it is up there. I wasn't too sure I usually listen to non-fiction but I bought it and listed and found myself really invested in the characters and wanting more when it ended... I have put her other book on my wish list.
The intermingling of the characters.
Megan. The Aussie. Too funny, no boundries! Loved her!
When Rachel realized she really was happy where she was and that Jem had become part of her life and that she was staying.
I loved how the author understood dogs. I loved how she was worried that she would fail her dog. I loved the way they worked together and that she loved Puzzle!
I don't know I have never read anything else like this... Maybe THUNDER DOG!
It's right up there. Writing about the hardest moment of your life is difficult but well Jon Katz did it superbly! I am going to read all of his books now...
When he just let Orson go.
It did make me cry. It made me laugh, it made me cringe, it made me imagine...
The voice of the narraitor, was great and I would never have been able to imagine that while reading.
Well it's only Trixie....
Captured the tone of how we would imagine a dog to speak!
Bliss to You: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Life
I don't know I have not read the print version.
Just loved this little book. A lovely story that only pet lovers will understand. The healing powers of loved animals are totally unknown.
Nope, but I really liked her readin of this book!
There were many!
