From My Bookshelf

Last week I saw this book at the library and checked it out. You all know that I love anything about dogs so this is no surprise; I also got a book about Bette White's work with dogs.  Scent of the Missing is the story of Susannah Charleson and her golden retriever, Puzzle. The stories are true and show the bond and partnership between a human and a working dog and the intricate relationships within the search and rescue community; in this case they are out of Texas.  I have long been interested in SAR(search and rescue) but after reading this book, I have such high regard and respect for the work they do.  The training is much more intense than I ever knew and the work itself is taxing.  This was a book I didn't want to put down and one I'd highly recommend.
Reggie slept well last night which means I did too and I'm thankful for it.  Our day has dawned with overcast skies and we haven't experienced this is awhile; I know walking will be pleasant  this morning.
I hope you are all having a fine week and finding bits & pieces of time to stop and enjoy life.
Blessings, Noreen


  1. Small joys-good to notice. I actually have the house open this morning-it has cooled off. I'm sitting on the porch with Molly breathing in the cool air. Hope your day is filled with God sightings!

  2. Morning Noreen. That book looks so good. Many years ago, I read a book that I found at the library called REX. It was written by Joyce Stranger. She was British, and I so enjoyed this book. I urge you to find it if you can. It is well worth the read.

  3. That book looks and sounds so interesting. I'll add it to my list of books to read.

    We've got our windows open here and it's absolutely lovely. I think it's going to get warmer than forecast, but I'm definitely going to keep those windows open as long as I can! ;-)

    Glad to hear that Reggie had a good night ... praying for many more good nights for your sweet boy.

  4. I loved that book. Search and rescue dogs fascinate me and I really enjoyed learning more about their training.

  5. Thank you, Noreen, for the book recommendation. I will have to look for it. I am glad Reggie had a good night's rest which helped you relax. I have been thinking about you, my sweet friend.
    Love you,
