Loved it!

This story has brought a whole new perspective of dogs for me. The stories were hilarious and I really connected with each dog. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to play with my dog!

Awesome book about Gary Paulsen's dogs.

This was an awesome book. Two things I love dogs and hunting. You can find both in this book. It's not exactly about Gary's dogs, but dogs that have been in Gary's life and made a lasting impression. There is so many memorable moments in this book. Dirk the protector, Ceaser the giant, Rex the farm dog, Ike the hunting companion and Josh, Gary's friend and dog. Some of the stories will make you laugh, some will make you think and some will tug on your heart strings. Any one narrating this book would be fine, but Gary doing it himself is a real treat. Having the writer read about his own experience you can hear the emotion and you just know that every word he wrote and in this case read was from the heart. There was only one thing I didn't like about this book. It ended. I want to read/listen to more books like these.
