Format: Paperback
Simply put, this is a charming book.

Anyone who has ever been a pet parent knows that their furry children have quirks and eccentricities, and Toby was no exception. I sympathized with both Charmaine & her husband, and Toby, because you know he couldn't be happy with all that inner anxiety. Of course, as a reader, I knew they were going to keep Toby but as a person, I really applaud their decision. It would have been so easy to give up and I'm so glad they didn't.

This is the kind of book you read when you need a pick-me-up, and a reminder that sometimes the very best experiences in life come wrapped in hard-work packages.

I just loved reading the heartwarming stories about Toby and his adventures. This book was easy to read, fun, made me laugh and made me so appreciate Toby's owners Chris and Charmaine for their strength, love and compassion for a beautiful pet who became such a part of their family. I had the pleasure of staying at Toby's home and I can tell you first hand he is an amazing dog who is more than entertaining. This book is a good curl up on the coach read.

I so enjoyed this book. I have never had a dog in my life but I do have a large family with four children. Reading this book connected me with the love of a dog and their family in the same way that I love my family. It opened my heart. The story was charming and endearing with the same amount of mischief that I'm familiar with as a mom. You can share this book with anyone and they'll love it. I've given this book as a gift to many many of my friends and colleagues.

If you love dogs this is one of the best written books about animal and people bonding. With any animal you bring into your life you must have patience and work with them. Not a single animal I know is perfect all around just like people we all have our flaws. Charmaine's words made me feel like I was in the room with Toby sometimes and seeing what she saw. I'd never give my dogs sticks after reading this book.

On Toby's Terms is an absolute treasure and I loved reading it. The story of the heartbroken rescue dog who finds two people who help him heal is wonderful. On Toby's Terms shows us the resiliency of the human -and dog spirit - by demonstrating that some bonds can never be broken.

As an animal lover, On Toby's Terms is a story that touched my heart.

Toby's antics were laughable and had me chuckling the whole way through. But what was truly beautiful was the Hammond's love for him and the determination they had to find his true purpose. It's a love story about family...a family with two-legged and four-legged members...and one of true devotion.

Format: Paperback
On Toby's Terms is a lovely story about a crazy rescue dog, Toby, after he was adopted by the Hammonds. Toby reminds me so much of my two Labrador puppies who are going through their destructive stage that I couldn't help but identify with the issues Charmaine was having and admire her patience and tolerance.

When Toby becomes a therapy animal it is heartwarming how many people's lives he touches and it becomes Toby teaching Charmaine lessons of life rather than the other way around.

Despite the current antics of my puppies, it was a great reminder for me of why I love them so much. So, if you're a fan of animal stories you should read On Toby's Terms.

I look forward to watching the movie and hopefully reading more books on Toby's antics.
