Merle's Door is a fast read. (I'm a terribly slow reader and I burned through it in about 2 weeks) The story is compelling because we find ourselves both in the emotion and the questions that are asked. We love Merle because Merle is our dog. We bond with Ted because Ted deals with the same struggles and victories as we do. I promise you'll love the story but the bibliography is priceless. This is the book that made me go buy others like The New Work of Dogs: Tending to Life, Love, and Family and The Other End of the Leash: Why We Do What We Do Around Dogs. Whenever Ted is at a turning point on how to handle an issue you'll see a footnote that leads to the richest resources you could ask for. This book will help you articulate why you do what you do with your dog and give you the tools to carry it out with confidence. Get it today, you won't be sorry!
