Book Reviews

Okay, so I've been doing some heavy reading. Usually I LOVE historical fiction, but lately that is just so boring to me (except Dianna Gabaldon, SHE could NEVER bore me.)

Books about dogs, real stories about people and their dogs, dog training books, dog behavior books, these are what is holding my attention lately.

"The Daily Coyote" by Shreve Stockton is a wonderful read. I really enjoyed losing myself in her wonderful descriptions. The simplicity of her life with Charlie really captured my attention and held me spell bound through the whole book. (Ask Hubby, he could barely get a word in edgewise this weekend! He practically had to pry the book from my grubby little fingers...)

"Be The Pack Leader" by Cesar Millan is also a really great book. I enjoyed the stories that he shared of the dogs (and people) that he has helped. I gobbled up what he says about us, as owners and how our actions and feelings are mirrored by our dogs. I highly recommend this book to anyone that desires to understand their dog better.

"The Other End Of The Leash" by Patricia B. McConnell Ph. D. has been a fun read so far. Usually sciency books make my eyes water and my brain turn to mush. But this is a great blend of science and humor. She writes in a wonderful, everyday language that is easy to read and absorb. I also LOVE her blog and read it daily.

All of the above books get 5 stars from me... Let me know if you read them and what YOU think!

And for a fun send off... dogs playing in the snow!
