I work at a pet industry trade magazine. We frequently get submissions of new books from publishers who want us to review them. This one was a duplicate, so I took it home.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as some other dog books. It was just OK. I liked that it was pro-pit bull, though. I think these dogs get so demonized in the media; it was nice reading about pit bulls that are ordinary dogs.

Off to mellion108 for a book relay.

From the back cover:
"Our dogs see us through more than they put us through," Ken Foster writes in Dogs I Have Met, his colleciton of stories from readers whose lives were changed by the unexpected arrival of a dog in need. Foster's new book introduces us to: a pit bull named Jimmy that is recovering from a hit-and-run in Oakland, California; a woman in Costa Rica who opened her house to fifty-five strays; a pit bull that raises a piglet as its own; a hemophiliac dog trained as a therapist; and the Ninth Ward dogs that returned with their owners to rebuild New Orleans.

Dogs I Have Met celebrates the inspiring transformations that take place at the intersection between mankind and dog. Of course, Dogs I Have Met also includes updates on Foster's beloved canine family: Brando, Zephyr, and Sula from The Dogs Who Found Me.
