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.
