Not all heroic dogs wildly toss themselves into lifesaving situations. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives.
In Service Tails: More Stories of Man's Best Hero, prolific author Ace Collins introduces us to leaders whose entire lives are wrapped in the banner of service. Their stories are remarkable snapshots of the value of vision and teamwork, as well as devotion to duty and unconditional love and acceptance-stretching the way we see both canine and human potential. Their training was intense, their loyalty unquestioned and each step of the way they constantly adapt to better serve those they lead. These unforgettable dogs are more than heroes; they are models from which we can learn how to love and serve unconditionally.
My thoughts (reviewed by Jenna): SERVICE TAILS is an amazing book. It's about dogs who went far beyond what they were trained to do. All of the stories were extremely amazing. It is hard to pin-point which one is the best because they were all amazing.
Some of the owners had more than physical problems. They also had internal problems and emotional problems and the dogs were able to sense them, sometimes before they even hit and practically saved their lives several times.
It was a really good book. I'm going to want to reread this one sometime and am putting it on my keeper shelf. 5 stars.
