I am now finally reading this, as I reserved the book for my 10-years-of-bookcrossing-anniversary-RABCK on the Finnish BC-forum.

From Goodreads: “I am highly impressed. . . . Paws and Effect is a great book for all dog lovers!”—Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation

“So meaningful and straight to the heart, Paws & Effect sheds a whole new light on our communication with animals of which many people are unaware. You may listen more closely the next time your dog tries to tell you something!” – Betty White, actress, author

Dogs have always helped humans and changed our lives for the better—by herding sheep, guarding our homes, and giving us unconditional love—but our dogs may save our lives as well. PAWS & EFFECT provides individual accounts of beloved pets that have supported their families, in miraculous ways, through periods of ill health; and it reviews the science that lends credence to claims of dogs’ healing power. For the first time, the array of fascinating information on this topic has been gathered in one place.

Did you know that groundbreaking research for detecting ovarian cancer with the use of a dog’s nose has been aided by a grant from the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program? Or that an Akita named Hotei is able to predict his owner’s seizures, and gets her to lie down before they take place? That an organization called X-CPR promotes the use of small, hairless Mexican dogs to relieve the pain of arthritis and fibromyalgia? That Army Sgt. 1st Class Russell Joyce and his Special Forces, aided by Fluffy, his German Shepherd, worked with the Kurds, in Iraq, to face down looters and secure the city of Mosul?

Author Sharon Sakson’s investigation took her to academic institutions, veterinarians’ offices, dog breeders, charitable organizations, and even the military—wherein she discovered documentation for what so many of us already understand: that the loving presence of a dog can avert, and transport us through, grave illness, whether physical or psychological. More importantly, her investigation took her deep into the hearts and lives of dogs and their owners. Sakson redefines the age-old bond between human and dog—a bond that is proving to be without limits.

After reading the dedication page, I was sure the book would make me cry my eyes out. A very touching and heartwarming book, really enjoyed reading it! Dogs (and other species) can improve our lives in numerous ways. We have so much to learn from them, in spite of the fact that they have abilities far beyond our reach. Many thanks for sharing!

Reading tip (in Finnish): Tiina Raevaaran Koiraksi ihmiselle -kirjassa tarkastellaan monipuolisesti koiran historiaa ja käsitellään myös ihmisen ja koiran välistä kumppanuutta. Kirja on tyyliltään/painotuksiltaan hyvin erilainen kuin tämä Saksonin kirja, siinä ei muistaakseni ollut juurikaan tällaisia tositarinoita eli oli tavallaan aika "kuivaa" luettavaa. Lainasin joskus kirjastosta. Joissakin kirjablogeissa näyttäisi olevan juttua Raevaaran kirjasta.

7 out of 10

I have a dog. A Boston Terrier called Ukko. (You can see him as a puppy at my profile picture). He is a defenetly member of our family and also some kind of therapy dog. Life is so much better with a dog(or with any pet/animal in your life).
Stories in this book were intresting and touching. So many great dog and human personalities. Ecpecially story of war dogs: "An army of Two"
This book is gonna be part of a postcard challenge:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/30/335068

I`m gonna release this at the local vet clinic, little bit later.

Tämä kirja on osa postikorttivapautushaastetta.
Katsoin, että paljon olisi toivojiakin ollut ko. kirjalle, mutta koska päätin jo hyvän aikaa sitten osallistua kuitenkin tällä haasteeseen osallistua, niin saa lähteä seuraavaksi villinä vapautuksena maailmalle.
Pidin kirjan tarinoista kyllä, luin tätä pienissä erissä muun lukeisen ohessa. Erityisesti sotakoiratarina kosketti hyvin paljon.
