Wesley the Owl - if you think dating with Dobermans can be challenging, imagine having an unfriendly, male aggressive owl living in your bedroom!

Ooops....dog specific. I'm not reading anything dog related now but there's a book called "Dog on It" that I read not too long ago that was pretty good.

I recommend James Herriot books as well. The first two have been great!

Dog related books are Oogy and Marley and Me! Really good and sad. I am also getting ready to read A Dog's Purpose.

I really think you'll enjoy Merle's Door!! Don't finish it around other people unless you don't mind them seeing you cry

Great horse stories:

The Eighty-Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired a Nation by Elizabeth Letts (true story and some actual footage on youtube)

Ruffian: Burning from the Start by Jane Schwartz (true story)

Stud by Kevin Conley (a look into the thoroughbred breeding industry)

Bill & I by Dalan E Smith (about the guy who helped William Shatner start his first horse farm)

Wild Ride by Ann Hegedorn Auerbach (about the rise and fall of Calumet Farm. I'm reading it now, but it's hard to get through. I have stopped a few times to read different novels)

That's all I can think of right now. Sorry, I love books! But out of all, The Eighty Dollar Champion is a must read. Even for those not that interested in horses, it describes a lot of the attitude and conditions in society post war. It doesn't get too technical with the horse training, etc. And the auction the horse was bought from is still going on today.

I am currently reading a great book about military working dogs (MWDs). The book is written by Mike Ritland with Gary Brozek; it is not about the average MWD, it is about the very elite Trident K-9 Warriors (also the name of the book).

Mr. Ritland served for about 13 years in the SEALs. He was a member of SEAL Team 3, and later a BUD/S instructor. After leaving the navy he started his own company to train dogs for the SEAL Teams. "Today he continues to supply working and protection dogs to a host of clients, including the U.S. government and Department of Defense. He also started the Warrior Dog Foundation to help retired Special Operations dogs live long and happy lives after their service".

It is not a dog training book, but it does cover a lot about the history, selection and training of these wonderful dogs. Many of the ways used to build the bite of the SEAL dogs can be applied to sport dogs and will help to produce a superior competition dog.

I cannot say enough about this book-buy it.

dog related, I finished up both Wallace and Oogy then just about sobbed myself to death.
currently reading Tell The Wolves I'm Home. So far, it's really good!

The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him and the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog.
