Janet Elder writes the story of her sons’ lost dog teaching a town about “hope and happy endings”. Based on the true story of a small dog and the kindness of strangers, “Huck” promises to be unforgettable. Ease of Reading(9/10): The writing flows well and any potentially obscure references are explained. I took about a day and a half to read this one.
Accuracy of Information(?/10): This is apparently a true story so the accuracy is not something I can verify. It seems believable though and Huck does act like a typical lost dog.
Usefulness of Information(8/10): It’s a pretty long list of things not to do when pursuing a lost pup. At the end you see the exact behaviours you want to see in a dog rescue though so I’m giving this one a pretty decent rank as it shows you what can be, and.. well, what can be.
Cost: Amazon: $12.41. That’s for paperback, it’s also available in hard cover and for the Kindle.
Bottom Line: This book was a good read. It’s a bit emotional and like many dog books seems to not talk about the dog a lot but it is a good reminder of how much you love your pup. This isn’t a dog training book, or a how-to on catching a runaway, but it could motivate you to create a plan or be more careful in the future.
