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.

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...
