Dog book of the month:
This is the 4th in our series of the dog book of the month. This month we are featuring "Merle's Door", by Ted Kerasote. This is a non-fiction book that features the relationship that humans have with dogs. Ted met and adopted Merle while he was on a camping trip. Merle is a Labrador mix that had been living on his own in the wild. He had to be taught that it is not OK to kill the neighbors cattle among other things. This book presents a remarkable animal with the latest research into animal behavior in addition to the origins and evolution of the human-dog interaction. I would recommend this book for older teens and adults since it highlights a great deal of research which can be complicated to understand.

In Loving Memoriam
" If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die, I want to go where they went". - Will Rogers-
I started my love affair with German shepherds when I got my first shepherd when I was 12 years old. His name was Captain, and he was my protector. He walked me to school and back each day, and when I started working he would walk me to my bus stop and back. He also bit my boyfriends, so needless to say, I didn't date much in high school. Having and raising them is so much more than a hobby--it is my passion. And, thankfully my husband loves the shepherds as much as I do.
