The author interwove the story of his second dog, Pukka, with his research about the health and well being of dogs. He mostly sticks to science to explain many things associated with living with and owning dogs.
I am a dog trainer. I've lived with dogs my whole life and I rely on my service dog to live in a world made for able bodied people. I do my best to stay up to date on the best ways to care for my dogs. This book opened my eyes to a few new things I can do to ensure my dogs live long and healthy lives.
If you are a dog professional, a dog lover, or just someone who wants to learn more about these animals we share our lives with, read this book. I promise you will learn something.
The reader/actor does an AMAZING job of speaking in Davy's voice. I really feel like I'm part of the story as I listen
I have to say this is his best. It's like he IS Davy.
When he first meets his mother.
I really really really really wish there was some way to remove the stupid music at the beginning. When will these book companies realize that that music is NOT inspirational or feel good, but simply drowns out the reader and annoys the listener.
Wonderful world building, great storyline, rich with interesting characters. I would probably loved it more in print. The narration of the story took quite a lot of getting used to.
ANYONE. Seriously . . . . . learn how to pace your words and stop sounding like Captain Kirk. Because . . . I really enjoyed . . . . your voices. . . . and I enjoy . . . the timber of . . . . your voice . . . . but there . . . . are more . . . . variations . . . . to punctuation . . . beyond . . . periods. . . .
The book really is worth the effort of getting used to the narrator . . . but it may be more enjoyable to read it in print.
Of course! I love the whole series so far. Just a bit of mind candy to entertain you.
Mags of course! He is a strong, well developed character and has a way of expressing himself that I find to be compelling.
I love his voices and accents. He reads at a steady pace that is very easy to listen to and his voice is just lovely.
Very much so. Wish I had the time!
I had a hard time pausing this story and stayed up half the night to listen to parts of it. I can't wait to listen to it again.
Middling . . . the story is great, but the reading could use some work
Anything else by M. Lackey. It's very much in her style with many interesting characters but common threads bringing them all together.
Annoying, monotone, steady.
I love this story and I love listening to stories read aloud. The parts that were in Karal's head were the best because the reader didn't have to make up stupid voices.
Karal Austreben is an interesting and deep character who has a wonderful 'voice' in the story itself.
Just about ANYONE who could speak at a reasonable pace and who might be willing to read the pronunciation guides that M. Lackey has published in several places. Not to mention someone who had more than three voices for characters that are not horrible.
PLEASE find some better readers for these books. They are some of my favorites and it is horribly disappointing to have them read by people who don't even care enough to learn how to pronounce the names.
I love this book. 4 very good short stories, including my favorite, The Smallest Dragon Boy.
The reader does a great job with a nice easy to listen to voice, however at the start and end of each story is the MOST OBNOXIOUS MUSIC overlapping the reader's voice. I would have rated this 4 stars but for that. I wish there was a way to make the music go away.
