A book from Heaven!

I was looking for a recent and extensive book about Boston's and this book did not disappoint. As a prospective owner, this book was "can't put it down" reading. It is written in a very clear, detailed and yet pleasantly concise manner. Unlike some books, it doesn't tell you want you want to hear, it tells you what you need to hear before taking on the responsibility of dog-ownership. You can be sure that as I prepare my home for a dog, wait to pick up my Boston from the breeder, and even after finally bringing her home and starting to train her, this book will be by my side. I highly recommend it.
