The review of this Book prepared by Chris Kantlehner

This is a delightful story of a man's unselfish adoption of a stray dog and one of her pups. A female dog who was led to a toolshed in this man's garden surely was guided by a higher being...for through gentle patience he won her trust and her lifelong devotion. A bonus gift for the reader is the fact that this gentle man also adopted one of her pups! The antics of these two dogs as they share the life of Professor Pitcher and his friend Ed bring smiles and tears. We, the readers, get to tag along for the joyful episodes of a lifetime of tricks, treats, and tears. From the shy dog in the the beautiful animals that love and understanding created...this book was a joy! I want to read it again!
