5.0 out of 5 stars great memories Dec 27 2009
I had originally bought this book for some friends, for a Christmas present, but ended up keeping it for myself and ordering another one for them!
My dog Sky, who was 14, died a few months ago and sometimes I miss her terribly! But this book has brought back many happy memories of her, and other older dogs that we've known. All their quirks, endearing qualities and even bad habits are in this book. If you've ever had a dog, that you watched get old and feeble, you will find something of your experience in this book. The introduction is almost so sad it's heart-breaking, and you certainly understand that the author knows his material. Each story, with the accompanying photo (which are fantastic photos, all of them) perfectly captures the essence of each dog. It's a great book for dog lovers, or any animal lover, because it really describes how unique and special each dog is, and tries to capture what makes them so loved by their owners. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Dogs - best friends! Feb. 12 2009
Old Dogs: Are the Best Dogs This book proved to be a treasure! The pictures are some of the best I've seen, and the text is heart warming. Having some wonderful senior fur babies in my own life, I could easily relate to the gifts of love and devotion old dogs with their special dignity give us every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Charming!!!!! Dec 28 2008
By Buddy
This is the most lovely, heartwarming book I've seen in a long time. Couldn't put it down and had a constant smile on my face & many chuckles while reading the very well written little 'blurbs' about each dog. Great photos & descriptions full of personality, & heart-tugging charm. I didn't want it to end! - I hope there's a sequel to come! ....Super gift for any dog lover.
