I was amazed by every exploit from every dog in this book. I was impressed by Bruno the German Shepherd who has assisted and protected his partner who is a police officer on 800 arrests half involving dangerous felons. This same dog has found 9 lost children 3 of whom no one else could track. I loved the story of Willie the golden retriever who predicts epileptic seizures and protects his owner from harm. This dog was trained to operate a footpad telephone in case of an emergency This incredible dog will even bark to remind his owner to take her medicine. I liked the story of AJ the bloodhound and Rachel the pet detectives. AJ is a former police dog who found a missing Alzheimer's patient, rescued a lost hiker and earned an award for saving the life of suicidal man. AJ is now teamed up with Rachel a Weimaraner a dog who searched for cadaver and body parts. She uses her sniffing skills to help AJ locate missing pets. I enjoyed the story of Mas the Newfoundland who can swim a mile to a drowning person and tow them to safety. This dog is strong enough to pull a sailboat filled with people to safety. There are other dogs in this book like Endal a Labrador retriever who assists a man in a wheelchair by doing everything from reminding him to look both ways when crossing the street to retrieving socks, groceries and even money. You will enjoy the stories in this book even if you don't own a dog.
