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.
I always love books about dogs, and Service Tails: More Stories of Man’s Best Hero by Ace Collins is no exception! Service Tails is a wonderful collection of great true stories that share both the love and loyalty of the owner and their dog, but also provide insight and inspiration.
We learn about their extensive training and incredible service working together to provide owners with more self confidence with the assistance of their service dog. These dogs help create permanent and forever bonds with their owners that goes beyond their service, and provides readers with that “heart connection” by sharing their stories.
Service Tails shares twelve stories of dogs who provide the commitment of duty and service to their owners, some saving lives and some providing an independent lifestyle to those unable to do so without the help of their service dog. The best part of these stories is the way it shares how owners and their dogs seem to become one as they work together to make life more enjoyable.
If you are a dog owner and lover, then I recommend this book to you. This is one of those books to keep on your shelf so you can read again in the future. Service Tails would also make a fantastic gift for any dog lover in your life!
