I just have to share with you the most wonderful book I have been reading by Ted Kerasote, the author of "Merle's Door". In fact, if you loved "Merle's Door" you are going to be blown away by "Pukka's Promise: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs" This book has got everything. It is funny, happy, sad, interesting, provocative and loaded with fantastic information for dog owners and lovers. Kerasote did an incredible amount of research putting this book together and the facts he has to share are eye-opening.
Besides sharing the wonderful relationship he has with his beloved dog Pukka, Ted discusses diet and nutrition, spay and neutering, adopting, euthanasia and much much more.
I have read hundreds of books about dogs over the past several years but none of them have had the profound influence on me the "Pukka's Promise" has. I urge you to read it and get an extra copy for the dog lovers in your life.
