Continuing on the developing theme of working and service dogs....

Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search-and-Rescue Dog
by Susannah Charleson

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/69270
61-scent-of-the-missing

SUCH a good book about Ms Charleson's journey to becoming a dog handler in the Search & Rescue group she volunteers with. Aside from the glimpse into all the training, experiences and research before the puppy arrived, she describes a number of the searches she has participated in through the years.

She does not romanticize the work - which can be filthy, gory and/or heart-wrenching even with a successful find.

The bond between handler and S&R dog is incredible as it matures...definitely a must read!

I'm participating in World Book Night and have 30 copies of A Prayer For Owen Meaney to give away. I will be reading that.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Hi,

I (will be) reading Tricked by Kevin Hearne on Tuesday. It's book 4 in a series about a reluctant Druid hero. I highly recommend his series (The Iron Druid Chronicles).

I am supposed to be reading The Division of Labor in Society by E. Durkheim.

My FB book group has been raving about Slammed by Colleen Hoover so I jumped on the bandwagon even though I don't usually go for YA books and started it tonight. It is very, very good. Check it out on Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1337269

Five days to die by Katia Lief - it's a really good thriller!!

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Another week! We had volatile weather for a few days. We were hit with wheat damage; but so lucky that we dodged the tornadoes.
Today I'm trying to finish Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain. I've started and restarted. It's a disturbing thought that the officer falls in love with serial killer who almost killed him. The first two books did not affect me so.
