Pukka’s Promise Book Review

Pukka's Promise Book Review

Author and journalist, Ted Kerasote, of Merle’s Door is back with a new book (and a new dog!) in this latest autobiographical installment of his life and adventures. Pukka’s Promise: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs, chronicle’s Ted’s search for a new pup- and not just any pup. He wants a dog as close in composition and temperament to Merle as he can get, and the author is also determined to provide this new little guy with the best (and longest) life possible.

Books by Neil Abramson

Books by Neil Abramson

Happy Summer, LYF! blog readers! This time, I’m bringing you TWO book reviews- because I just read both of them recently and can’t stop raving about either one! I highly, HIGHLY recommend both of Neil Abramson’s books (Unsaid, and Just Life). I couldn’t put either one of them down. The first, Unsaid, is the author’s debut novel. Abramson introduces us to veterinarian, Helena, who recently passed away. Helena is afraid to enter heaven, fearing that all of the dogs she’s ever euthanized will be there, waiting for her, judging her for her actions- did she wait too long? or set

Shepherd’s Crook

Shepherd's Crook

Shepherd’s Crook by Sheila Webster Boneham I grabbed this book from my current library’s “new books” shelf on a whim, not realizing it was the fourth in a new series I hadn’t yet heard of. The main character, Janet McPhail is a fifties-ish woman who divides her time between her photography career, and her dog’s herding, tracking and agility pursuits. Jay, the Australian shepherd, is Janet’s canine counterpart. Other characters include a couple of cats, and various friends and their dogs. Janet also seems to find herself stumbling into solving the occasional mystery. This book begins with the curious case

The Dog Who Saved Me

The Dog Who Saved Me

The Dog Who Saved Me, by Susan Wilson As usual, Susan Wilson does not disappoint. I’ve really enjoyed the author’s foray into “dog books” in recent years. She has a way of telling familiar stories, with an interesting, and slightly different, twist. With each of her books, her skill and talent as a storyteller improves and while The Dog Who Danced is probably still my favorite of hers, The Dog Who Saved Me is her best work yet. Our story begins with former K-9 officer, Cooper Harrison, struggling to reconcile his life after the loss of his partner, and watching
