Service Tails (Abingdon Press, August 2016)
Heart-tugging true stories of the courage, faith, and loyalty of remarkable service dogs.
Not all heroic dogs wildly toss themselves into lifesaving situations. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives.
In Service Tails: More Stories of Man’s Best Hero, prolific author Ace Collins introduces us to leaders whose entire lives are wrapped in the banner of service. Their stories are remarkable snapshots of the value of vision and teamwork, as well as devotion to duty and unconditional love and acceptance–stretching the way we see both canine and human potential. Their training was intense, their loyalty unquestioned and each step of the way they constantly adapt to better serve those they lead. These unforgettable dogs are more than heroes; they are models from which we can learn how to love and serve unconditionally.

My Take~

I am a huge dog person so this was a perfect book for me. Each story shows the unconditional love between pet and owner. When I think of heroic animals I think of my friend Ronie who has a retired military dog, and while Vvolt is a hero, some dog hero's are the ones who guide a blind person, or alerts their owner of a seizure. 
When I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 94 we had a puppy and while there were no seizure dogs in 94, Beethoven became a seizure dog in that when I had a seizure he'd sit right beside me and alert someone by barking. The only time he barked.
This was a heartwarming book. I highly recommend it!

My sweet Beethoven!
