Product description

From the Inside Flap

"SMOKY--'became a miracle--the greatest dog I ever knew and far greater than any I have read about.'" --FOREWORD by Maxwell Riddle, World-renowned dog judge and expert "This book is a delightful tale of life's twists and turns interwoven around a charming little dog. It belongs in every dog lover's library. It is more than a book about a dog, it is a first-hand slice of wartime history and struggle of a young man in postwar years to establish his career and care for his growing family."--Suzanne Hively, Pets Columnist, "Cleveland Plain Dealer" "The smallest four-footed soldier to serve in war, WWII canine mascot Smoky proved to be a courageous companion to her handler William Wynne--who writes of their unique experiences with enthusiasm and love." --Barbara Jedda, Director of the AKC Museum of the Dog "'Yorkie Doodle Dandy' exemplifies the beauty of the human/animal bond. Readers can't help but fall in love with Smoky and admire the spirit of this tiny creature."--Norine Dresser, "Los Angeles Times" "SMOKY is the first documented 'Therapy dog' beginning with battlefield casualties coming from the Biak Island Invasion in 1944." --"Yorkshire Terrier." ANIMAL PLANET "Breed All About It" Series "SMOKY began the popularity of the then obscure breed with wire photos and stories appearing from the Far Pacific in 1945." --"Popular Dogs Series Magazine" -- Special Issue: "Yorkshire Terrier"
