Item description for Biography of a Bird Dog, A Labrador Retriever in Wyoming by Garry Wallace...

As you might expect, Biography of a Bird Dog is the story of a man and his dog. But it is more than that, it's a memoir of not only of a puppy's first year of life but of a man's appraisal of his own life and career in a small town in Wyoming. As Ebenezer, his bird dog, is nearing the end of his hunting career, the author decides to add a new puppy to the family with the intention of using all he has learned to train her to achieve the full potential of her breed, a process that turns out to be filled with both joy and frustration. When tragedy strikes, he must re-evaluate his own plans along with his dog's future. Many photos add to this heartwarming story, making it a memorable experience for any dog lover, a story that will be read and re-read for many years to come. .

Reviews - What do customers think about Biography of a Bird Dog, A Labrador Retriever in Wyoming?

Reflections of a Bird Dog Trainer  Nov 12, 2007
Garry Wallace needs a new bird dog as his old one, Ebenezer, is getting on in years. While this book is about him training his new bird dog, Valley Girl, it is also much more as the author also reflects on his own life and the small town in Wyoming in which he lives. And since the training of a bird dog takes a steady, but set pace, this book moves a lot slower than many other books, yet the pace and timing of the story are perfectly. You feel that you are in a small town in the midwest -- which is perhaps the highest compliment that a book can get -- to make you feel as though you are part of the book. You not only learn about the training of the dogs, but of the author himself.
A Book every animal lover can relate to  May 7, 2007
I found this book to be a relaxing read. As a person that has trained and own dogs and horses much of what is in this book rings true in my own life. The book is written by a college professor but doesn't get bogged down with boring facts and statistics, it is down to earth account of his Lab in its first year of life, with all the ups and downs of training a puppy. The author claims that the book is not a training manual but this book would be a perfect addition to anyones library if they own or train animals because it gives a realistic perspective to what it is like for the inexperienced person to take on the task of developing a trained animal. The book does leave a couple of loose ends but nothing that is detrimental to the overall message of the book. The author exibits a dry sense of humor throughout the book which also adds to the realism and enjoyment of the biography.
