Amazing Book..

I am not normally one to write reviews about audio books I listen to, and this is the first one I have written in my 2 years with audible...

This book moved me so much, helping me to think about some of the amazing work people and dogs can do to help people -- and even making me cry at several points throughout the book.

I have listened to Jon's other books such as The New Work of Dogs - and they are great, but pale in comparison to this one.

Its ironic because in The New Work of Dogs he was talking about the various different and unique things other people are doing with thier dogs and now he is writting about the new work that Izzy (an amazingly insightful border collie) and Jon are doing with Hospice...

Loved this book.

I wanted to read this book because a good friend was in the ICU for five weeks and I was interested in the part of the book about hospice care. I'm also considering getting a dog this year, as I'll be moving to the country.

I really loved the parts of this book about the dogs and essentially the redemption of both the man and dog through their relationship (Izzy). The fact that he then turns into a therapy dog with amazing healing abilities is a part of the boook I have told many friends about.

His farm and relationship with his variety of animals keeps you reading the book too. Read it.

This is my first Jon Katz book and I immediately went to the library and read another in two days: Dog Year.
