      I started it but life happened, I got interrupted and never got back to it. I'll need to try again. Seems like it could have some really interesting info.

      I own it and love it. After Merle's Door (maybe the best dog book I've ever read), I had to have it. I think the pictures are as wonderful as the narrative. It is a quick read, can be finished in an afternoon.

      Oh crap, sorry, ignore my last post. I was thinking of "Pukka." I did read "Pukka's Promise," and thought it was okay, but not nearly what "Merle's Door" was. After borrowing it from the library, I did not buy it.

      Yep, and I recommend as Bridget said start with Merle's Door. While Pukka's Promise is a good read and a lot of info, though much of the same info is talked about right here on the lab board, waiting to neuter, reputable breeders, raw vs kibble, it has a lot of other really good info and things for you to think about. To really get the whole story you need to read Merle's door as there is a very deep and very good story. There is another book which really is just a photography book "Pukka: The Pup After Merle" , I enjoyed it, you might as well, but pictures of him getting Pukka and the story of him getting a new puppy and picking him out and evaluating.

      The order of the books are Merle's Door, Pukka: The Pup After Merle, Pukka's Promise.

      My trainer recommended I read Pukka's Promise. I forgot about it until I read this thread. Thanks for the reminder
