I enjoyed this book- Robert Rodi's writing is refreshing - it is light and funny and his ability to get you into the world of dog agility training made me want to sign up as soon as possible! I only wish there were pictures of the dogs and more of Dusty too. very cute read.
loved this. soo funny.the author describes well the changes he went through. characters are written well,and are belivable as real people..
This book is a fun quick read about the trials (agility trials that is) and tribulations of working with a rescue dog and trying to overcome his bad start in life. Set in the Chicago area and using the actual names (most of the time) of those he crossed paths with made this especially interesting to me since I too attend agility trials in that area. He covers the whole feeling of belonging to a group that supports and encourages you and how breaking into those groups can sometimes make you feel like an outcast.
If you like dog agility or like to read about rescue dogs that have found their forever homes, then you'll enjoy this non-fiction book that makes you smile and say, oh yeah, been there, done that, seen that.
I loved this book!!! Parts were funny that I really did lol. Dog owners can identify with the behavior of Dusty. The author was hilarious with his comments and running dialogue. If it was me, I would have pulled my hair out of frustration and given up a long time ago. I must say the author really stuck it out through thick and thin with competing Dusty in agility trials. Then I also learned a lot about agility trials in depth. An enjoyable read for me.
