Confessions of a Guide Dog: The Blonde Leading the Blind
by Mark Carlson and Musket

Heart to Heart, Hand in Paw:
How One Woman Finds Faith and Hope Through the Healing Love of Animals
by Peggy Frezon

Both of these books are about dogs (of course!) and you know me…I love dogs! Heart to Heart is not strictly about a dog, or dogs, but has enough in it to qualify in my book.

They stirred me for different reasons. Here are the reviews I posted on Amazon and then see for yourself how they affect you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and Humorous, April 28, 2012

I met Mark, Musket, and Jane on a trip to their home. They are wonderful people. Musket is a wonderful dog.
Mark has taken the spirit of Musket and infused the book with sass and humor from his side-by-side companion. Musket’s “voice” throughout the book has a little dog symbol in front of it to help you differentiate between when Musket is talking and when Mark is talking, but I think you’ll catch on fairly quickly. Musket has quite a lot to say.
Chapter 3, The Three Musketeers, has a really cute beginning and I’m intrigued by the air museum work and meeting of astronauts throughout the book.
Mark and Musket, you surely get around. Kudos for writing an entertaining and informative book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Hope, April 29, 2012

Heart to Heart, Hand in Paw is the author’s mother’s story of hardships, courage, and most of all hope. Luann had many animals in her life, stray dogs, chickens, goats, and even a lamb. She’s loved them all, and they’ve loved her back.
As Peggy states in her wonderful Author’s Note: Her experiences remind me to be grateful for the roof over my head, the pets under my roof, and for healing bonds between humans and animals.
I wholeheartedly agree!

    Books about canines are always good – problem there isn’t enough of them. Like your reviews. Oh, we canines love you humans even though you’re very inferior spicies.

    How kind of you to help promote others! Loved Heart to Heart, Hand to Paw. Haven’t yet read Confessions of a Guide Dog, but what an intruiging title!
