Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 076790026X, Hardcover)A delightful chronicle of one man's search for the ideal canine companion--and of the inspiring lessons he learned about love, loyalty, compassion, and trust along the way.
For many, life is a constant search for perfection--in themselves, their work, their families. For Gary Shiebler, life has been one long search for the perfect dog. In a poignant and immensely entertaining narrative, he reflects on the dogs that have touched his life--from the strays his mother adopted during his childhood to the myriad hounds he has owned as an adult and cared for as an animal shelter educator.
With deep feeling and frequent humor, Shiebler vividly describes the joys, responsibilities, and heartbreaks of pet care and ownership. At the same time, he leads the reader on an inspiring journey of understanding and acceptance, for as Shiebler faces the challenges that each dog brings, he learns valuable lessons not only about being humane but about being human.
Like the beloved books about dogs by James Herriot and Roger Caras, A Search for the Perfect Dog illuminates the special magic that exists between dog lovers and their four-legged friends--and the rewards that unconditional love can bring into all our lives.
