"A Good Dog"

I am currently reading a great book by Jon Katz about an intense and challenging Border Collie named Orson. The quote on the inside jacket that made me purchase the book reads: "People who love dogs often talk about a 'lifetime dog'. I'd heard the phrase a dozen times before I came to recognize its significance. Lifetime dogs are dogs we love in especially powerful, sometime inexplicable ways" - Jon Katz

I would highly recommend this book. It is a light read, and it is fun to read aloud with a partner. Adults often forget how nice it is to share a story and how comforting it feels to be read to. We don't have any kids around to read to but our dogs all seem to love our story hour.
