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. Purchase a copy: http://bit.ly/2bb7SeE

My Thoughts On The Book: One of my former students got a service dog this summer. She is a brittle type 1 diabetic and this dog was obtained to give her the freedom to go to college. Emma (the dog) senses when my students blood sugar spikes either way. It has been amazing to watch what this awesome dog can do. That is why I asked to review this book. It touched home. The beginning of the book tells the history of the service dog and that was very interesting. The book itself gives you a dozen stories that are heart wrenching and uplifting at the same time as you read about some amazing animals whose whole purpose is service. If you are a dog lover this book is a must read. If you are not a dog person this book is still something you will want to sit down with. I promise you that you will get a better understanding of service dogs. I loved this book. It is definitely a keeper.
