Jennifer L. said:
Attention all dog lovers here is yet another humorous, jubilant and touching story of the relationship between a man and his dog. Ted Kerasote was camping, kayaking and rafting down the San Juan River with friends when a big golden dog (he names Merle) came out of the night seemingly from nowhere into their campsite. Kerasote proceeds to relate the next 13 years of Merle’s life with him while exploring the science behind canine behavior and evolution weaving in research on the human - canine bond and musing on the way dogs see the world. A must read if you enjoyed Marley and Me by John Grogan and books by James Herriot and Jon Katz.

I absolutely love this book! It is a combination of detailed research about how animals and dogs in particular think, behave, and the reasons why they do. It is also a beautiful story of the love between a man and his dog. Merle becomes alive as a free thinking, intelligent and highly communicative companion for the author. The descriptions of scenery and nature in Wyoming are the best.
