Review: WE GIVE OUR HEARTS TO DOGS TO TEAR by Alston Chase
"everyone who's ever owned and loved a dog has experienced its death, and those who've owned dogs their entire lives have experienced such grief repeatedly."- Author Alston Chase
"Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear."--Rudyard Kipling
An extraordinary, lyrical, heartfelt, loving, poetic, narrative of some of the dogs in the lives of author Alston Chase and his wife Diane. This is a book that deserves to be savored, then repeatedly reread at intervals. Author Chase is equally at home with his dogs, wildlife, and the land he loves. I think his quote above encapsulates it all. Yes, our animals may not live forever; but the joy they bring while still beside us!
If you love animals at all; if you've ever developed a sense of the spirit of Place: read, read read WE GIVE OUR HEARTS TO DOGS TO TEAR.
