    Read this book if you have a dog or love someone else's dog.

    I loved reading this book!

    It is well researched and very well written. Most of all I loved reading all the stories about dogs and the people who love them. I wish all the people in Nextdoor Neighborhood would read this book so a) they might hang onto their dogs better, and b) if they do lose their dogs, they can more easily find them.
