Have you ever wondered what a guide dog does? How do they know to lead a blind owner? Can they understand traffic lights? Most importantly, how does the owner know where to pick up the poop? This memoir answers these questionsaand more. It tells what guide dogs are supposed to do. Theyare smart, loyal and well-trainedabut not all dogs are created alike. Musket is proof of that. Heas definitely got a thing for treats and belly rubs. For the first time, the dog has his say. (Of course he needed a little help with the typing, since he doesnat have opposable thumbs. Thatas where author Mark Carlson came in. Still, Musket is the brains of the outfit.) Mark and Musket tell their story with humor, emotion, and Musketas occasional contradictions. And at the end of the day, Musket somehow manages to be a great guide dog too. Confessions of a Guide Dog was written so a wonderful, devoted dog could reach out to those who havenat been lucky enough to meet him. Heall make you smile, laugh, cry, and want to give him treats. This is their story. (And theyare sticking to it.)A friend of Janea#39;s who bred Irish Setters told us some dogs dona#39;t handle corn meal very well and a lot of dog foods used corn meal as fillers. The next time we were at the pet store to buy a bag of Eukanuba, I asked Jane to read the ingredients.
