Quotes & Awards

  • “[Katz’s] subtle, evocative descriptions of the beasts around him—including Rose, another border collie whose brilliant herding steals the show—vividly capture the fascinating, enigmatic lives of animals.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Katz's border collie, Orson, evoked all kinds of emotions during their fulfilling time together…Tom Stechschulte captures all of these flawlessly but none more movingly than when Orson’s end comes. The eloquence with which Katz describes those moments moves Stechschulte to tears, as it surely will the listener.”

    " This was my first (and last) Katz book. I loved the first 3/4 of the book. It is both sweet and funny and, as a dog lover, I related well to much of it. This book was on its way strong 4-5star rating at that point. Unfortunately, I fundamentally disagree with the decision that Katz eventually came to, which truly ruined my good feelings on this book. As an animal lover, I recommend you look elsewhere for a good animal memoir. "
