I just finished Soul of a Dog and my mother listened to it on tape. WE both agreed it was excellent. There is one member here who reminds me a great deal of the writer and his dogs. I didn't want to sidetrack his thread so i thought i would start a new one. Have you read any of his books?

A Dog Year, yes. I'm not a huge fan of his as there's a fair amount of misinformation in his books (specifically about BCs but also dogs in general) and he does some pretty sketchy things with his animals imo.

I've read some of his stuff but I find him a too controversial to enjoy his work.

^ this. I've read dogs of Bedlam Farm, and he does alot of sketchy things in that book with his very young, inexperienced dog.

I Don't know about bc work. Only related and enjoyed the therapy work, and his discriptions of his farm and the animals, especially Mother and the Bull. WAs glad he was open to holistic treatment too.

I don't enjoy his books (well, the two I've read). I think some of his dogs were massively mis-managed and suffered badly for mistakes he made.

He may very well be a good author, but as a dog person, he doesn't impress me.

I personally have not read his books and will not read his books after learning what has happened to all his dogs.

All his dogs? YOu know something that I don't. I know Orson was pts. I can see what that would be controversial but I do not know what has happened to the others.
