I grew up on a ranch, where we had working dogs. I have had animals all my life, including dogs of a variety of breeds over the years including German Shepherds.
The book tells the story of the author’s experience with raising a large breed dog after only having small breed dogs. The story starts out in Tunisia where she obtains two German Shepherd puppies and after a while the story moves to Vienna, Austria then onto the United States. The author uses this to demonstrate how people in various countries relate to dogs.
The author provides a number of interesting stories about her relationship to Quinky including how they have communicated to each other. I felt the book was primarily a method for the author to express her feelings and opinions about the role of the dog in the modern world, as being part of a family. The author also provided a number of stories of animal abuse and her feelings about the situation. Lennart also provided a detailed story about veterinary malpractice which was interesting. I enjoyed the personal stories about Quinky but all the information about dogs, their behavior , animal abuse I already was fully aware of and if I knew this was the primarily role of the book I would not have purchased it. For those people who have not had dogs this book would be of interest to them.
Marsha Waterbury did a good job narrating the book.
