Item description for The Dogs Who Grew Me: A Tribute to the Six Dogs Who Taught Me What Really Matters in Life (Capital Ideas) by Ann Pregosin...

This memoir of a life gloriously lived with dogs illustrates how dogs can have a profound affect in our lives. The six dogs in Pregosin's life have been: Moppet, the sweet little American cocker spaniel from her childhood; Della, the sleek black Great Dane; Timber, the wolf hybrid; Boo, an iron-willed Rottweiler; Daisy, a chocolate American cocker spaniel; and Tyler, a Bernese mountain dog. Pregosin recounts the stories of how each dog came into her life and what each taught her. Pregosin also explores myriad dog issues - from the American Kennel Club standards (and departures) of the five breeds and their history, to the adventures of owning a dog. She explores the nature versus nurture debate, medical issues, dog breeders, boarding facilities, housebreaking, and obedience training. In the end, all six of Pregosin's intrepid "teachers" showed their beloved mistress simple but profound truths about perseverance, patience, joy, motherhood, the foibles of excessive rigidity and self-defeating aggression, the gift of good health, adjusting to age as youth gives way, accepting death as part of life, and the importance of really living the life that is given to each of us.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dogs Who Grew Me: A Tribute to the Six Dogs Who Taught Me What Really Matters in Life (Capital Ideas)?

Engaging read  Mar 20, 2007
I enjoyed this book and the stories of her 6 dogs. I am passing this book on to my doggie friends. Worthwhile, enjoyable read. My dogs have also taught me what matters.
Touching Memoir With Wonderful Advice!  May 9, 2002
What can I say about this great book? It made me laugh and cry. I read it during my lunch break at work and tears would be streaming down my face from laughter and sadness!

Ann Pregosin discusses her life with dogs. She got her dogs through breeders, which isn't so popular in today's world where rescuing pets from animal shelters is considered more acceptable. But Ms. Pregosin is so knowledgable about dogs that when she explains why she chose the dogs she did and how she found them, it really doesn't matter where she got her beloved dogs from.

The book is full of great stories, as well as tons of information about training, breeds, and dogs in general. You don't have to be a dog lover to like this book. Anyone who loves animals should pick up this book right away!
