Thread: Merles Door Good Book

  1. #1

    Default Merles Door Good Book

    I just finished reading Merle's Door. I enjoyed this book. What I took away from it was to let your dog make decisions. Some of it was stretched a little thin.

    Anybody have any ideas of other doggy books. No training manual stuff. I have those and don't read them.

    Thanks, rm

    Not a fan of Merle's Door as he sat there and let his beloved companion die in an undignified and painful way. Maybe he (the author) didn't want to play god, but that left a really bad feeling in me.
