The Other End of the Leash -- it was very helpful in understanding my dogs and how to train them

I love to read dog clicker training books. I have about 15 books on this topic because I love to read and one of my favorite subjects is learning how to work with my dog.

I would have to say that The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick's Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption is a must read for any dog lover. It is not an easy book to read and I have to say there were a few times that I had to put it aside for awhile. It made me cry but it also helped me understand the breed better and what a bad rap they get. This book touched me in ways that made me reach for my own dogs and shower them with kisses and tears.

Another good one was Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe

My favorites and MUST reads are Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love by Larry Levin heart wrenching

Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero by Larry King its about 9/11 amazing story

Love love love 'A Dog's Purpose' by Bruce Cameron. The sequel is out, 'A Dog's Journey' and is on my short list of reading while I am recovering from surgery later this month.

Thanks for the other suggestions, I may pick one or two of those up as well.

Am currently reading a new book, called Lost and Found, by Jaqueline Sheehan, that features a dog. Brief synopsis:

a contemporary tale of grief featuring Rocky Pelligrino, a woman reeling from her husband's death. After her husband dies of a heart attack, Rocky leaves behind her career as a psychologist in the Berkshire Mountains and moves to Peak's Island, Maine, taking a job as an Animal Control Warden. Her first catch is a black Lab with an arrow lodged in his shoulder. She takes him in, searches for his owner and tries to solve the mystery behind the arrow's origin.


So far, it's pretty good.

'Miss the Bed" was written by the actor, John O'Hurley. From the book jacket:

My life is richer for the presence of dogs.

For dogs, there is always time to appreciate the simple joys in life - the pomp and parade to the kitchen each morning; riding in the car with their heads out the window . . . the soft feel of the grass in the backyard, always worthy of a roll or two; the singular sound of the word "walk", which apparently sounds like "lotto winner" to them.

My dogs have taught me to appreciate more fully and assume much less. The fact that I can have a dog as a companion means that my life is filled with abundance.

I am a mucn better person with a dog in my lap.


I just started reading a book called "Lost and Found" and it involves a young woman who becomes a widow to soon and a dog she rescues. I have a feeling the dog is going to be a very healing force for the woman. I think I'm going to like it, but I'll let you know for sure when I'm done.

The Art of Racing in the Rain is not only one of my favorite dog-related books, but I count it as one of my top 10 favorite books of all time.
