    Default Merle's Door

    This was posted in another thread, you may not be interested but just in case you missed it I though I would start this thread. As I mentioned before I have read literally hundreds of books and own quite an extensive library myself. Perhaps it's just this stage in my life but this is one of the best book I have ever read on several levels. So I'm putting a plug in for it here. It's really that good.

    Merle's Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog


    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Below is a short video interview with the author of Merle's Door and a more recent book which I have not read yet.
    But you can get a good idea what kind of man Ted Kerasote is through this interview and his love for dogs.

    You won't regret it I promise. You, if like me, may need a few kleenex's before you finish, but its a wonderful and true account of a persons special relationship with his dog. Well written and captivating too, on many levels as you will see

    Tim, thank you for the suggestion. I'd just said, I needed some new GOOD books!

    Why are dogs in Europe healthier and why do they live longer than they do in the United States
