Ted Kerasote's book is a wonderfully sensitive book, written in large part from the "dog's eye". Ted & Merle live in a small town in the Pacific North West where all dogs are communally raised. There are no "fencing out" of "fencing in"
laws or practices; there are no fights or barking dog issues. All dogs are free to wander & visit each other within the community. In short, the dogs have the same opportunity for a social life as the humans do! How Merle & Ted and their neighbors arrived at this point, is the subject of this wonderful book.

This book was one of the best animal/human stories I've read in a long time. Mr. Kerasote captured not only my heart but showed me some interesting facts about dogs and their kin that I never knew before. His relationship with Merle shows the love that certain people have for animals. A trait that ALL humans should have for God's creatures. The ending is sad so have some kleenex handy.

I really enjoyed this Psychological approach
This book was very informational on how to psychologically understand the thinking process a dog goes through. It is presented in a very readable way so anyone can get a better read on their own personal relationship with their own dog.

Can't Help but Love 'Em
Since we recently went through the experience so vividly told in this story. We really became "attached" to Merle. Loved the book very much. Couldn't put it down.
