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.

excellent

This book begins with a disclaimer: no dog dies in this book. That's true, but it was still a tear jerker in places. Excellent story, a must read for all dog lovers.
