Service Tails, by Ace Collins {book review}

About the book

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.

What I thought about the book

This is a captivating collection of heartwarming stories which any dog-lover will enjoy. I have a strong interest in service dogs, because for several years now, I have wished for one for my daughter who has Type 1 Diabetes.

My youngest son has some learning disabilities and developmental delays. We had a Great Pyrenees  that was a great companion and guardian dog for my son. Seriously, when my son was out in the yard playing (in our not-so-safe neighborhood) our beloved dog would stay close to him, or lie a few yards away keeping an eye on my son. It was just instinct on the dog's part.

Dogs are amazing creatures, and I always enjoy good dog stories. Be sure to check out Service Tails!
