Mitzi is an 18-year-old dog.* She tells the story of her adventurous life in this heartwarming tale. She is a star on the stage, and protects her home when a burglar tries to break in. Her Dad, a K-9 handler in the US Air Force, tells how she was trained and how important it is to eat the best quality dog food, which has kept her healthy all these years. When Mom enters her life, she now has two people to love.
(* Mitzi was 20 years old in January 2018. She crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in May.)
"This is a great read for young and old alike!: I absolutely loved this book! Dennis did an amazing job of telling the story of Mitzi, a dog he rescued and saved from a life of misery. I must say that Dennis's training techniques surprised me and made me realize why my prior dog training techniques have never worked very well. You can feel the love that both master and animal companion have for each other.
I also loved how Dennis told about meeting his wife, Carolyn, and how Mitzi won her over, hook, line, and sinker!
This is a great book for any child, as it teaches how love, kindness, consistency, and discipline, and, oh yes, really good, high quality food, can make all the difference in an animal's life. I recommend this as a great gift for any child in one's life! I'm definitely giving it to both of my granddaughters!"
"Meet Mitzi: If you like dog tales, (and who doesn’t?) then you gotta meet Mitzi! She is a wise old lady who has been there and done that!"
"Perfect Christmas Present: Excellent book for children. Absolutely loved it."
"A lovely children's story: Mitzi: Tale of a Dog, is a children’s story told from the point of view of Mitzi, who is an 18 year old, German shepherd and boxer cross.
Mitzi lives with her mum and dad, Dennis and Carolyn. That hasn’t always been the case though, as Dennis bought Mitzi when she was 5 years old. She weighed just 35 pounds, and had been mistreated for a long time.
Dennis is an ex serviceman with the K9 department, so he knew how to train dogs efficiently, with love and hugs and not treats. Mitzi was a model pupil, and learned quickly how to sit, lie down etc.
Mitzi loves her life, even though she is getting old now and has arthritis and is deaf. She gets lots of love and attention from her favourite people in the world, her mum and dad.
The tale is a wonderful story of how one dog went from being sad, lonely and hurt, to being the happiest dog in the world. I love that the book is told from Mitzi’s point of view, so you get to hear just how Mitzi feels.
The book will teach children that with a lot of love, time, and friendliness, that they could make someone very happy, whether that be a dog or a human."
