Product Description

Review

'There probably is no other military dog that has saved more lives than Treo. He is truly quite remarkable' Mike Dowling, author of Sergeant Rex.

'An emotional journey ... this title is more than good; it is excellent' Soldier magazine. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

This is the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond forged between Treo, the world's most highly decorated living dog, and his handler Dave Heyhoe, whilst doing the most dangerous job on earth - sniffing out bombs in Afghanistan. Dave - known to his fellow soldiers as 'the Dog Whisperer' - and Treo were sent forwards, alone and unprotected, to detect the Taliban's murderous IEDs. Soon soldiers refused to patrol unless Treo was in front digging out the bombs, and the pressure on the duo became ever more relentless and intense. Dave viewed Treo as his best friend and Treo saw Dave as his beloved father. As they were sniped at, blown up, threatened with capture and worse, man and dog would realise they needed each other more than they could have ever imagined. This is a gripping and heart-warming story, full of tragedy and triumph, pathos and laughter, as one man and his dog dare all to ensure that every soldier comes home alive.

I just couldn't put this book down. It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Being an ex-serviceman myself and a dog lover I marvelled at the bond that Sgt Heyhoe and Treo share together. Sgt Heyhoe takes us through the horror of war with this miraculous dog at his side. The respect for him and his dog by his fellow soldiers is evident as you turn the pages and the fact that both were so professional and dedicated to finding IED's that the Taliban made them a priority to be killed. The tension you feel as they head each patrol looking for arms and explosives is tangible. The lighter side of the book is Treo's mischievous natural streak. On one occasion the tears rolled down my cheeks as Sgt Heyhoe himself in tears carried out an order against everything he stands for.

A wonderful book about the bond between man and dog in the theatre of war.

I have really enjoyed reading this book; it has made me laugh out loud and then made me sob my heart out. There is so much going on in Afghan and other war zones that we never hear about, In this case the true heroes Dave and Treo. The book is so descriptive you can feel the heat and the sweat rolling down your back and taste the hot sandy air, I loved how nothing was held back even when Dave thought he needed to take the blame for certain situations, He does not make himself out to be the hero but Treo his beloved dog who is totally amazing to deal with the situations he is put in but always delivers on his searches (even if some do doubt him), Dave's love for the dog really comes through in all he does, Treo is his only priority then the lads on the ground (to get them all back safely to base) then himself, The bond between man and dog is one that cannot be broken and comes across in the book strongly. Dave also tells of the friendships he and Treo make with the other soldiers out in Afghan and the bonds that are made due to being together in a war zone. Treo is a much loved dog in afghan by all that come into contact with him. I would recommend this book if you want an honest opinion of what life is like as a dog handler out in a war zone the smiles the laughter and the tears.

Where do you start.
Words cannot describe the emotions the book puts you through, firstly let me say I am not an emotional person, I'm 5,10,16 1/2 stone and a stocky chap, but that did not stop this book having me in floods of tears at times.

As Both a proud British man and also an animal lover you cannot help but feel nothing but great admiration and pride for what this dog and his handler achieved, both in battle and in life itself.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could not put it down, I read it inside 2 days, now I am normally a light reader only reading at nite usually, this book had me reading any spare second I had!!!

Buy it you will not regret doing so .

On Friday 28th September, I went into a well know book store and purchased "It's All About Treo". 24 hours later I had finished the last page!!! This book was unputdownable!!!! Is that even a word???

From the first page I was drawn in, hook, line and sinker, for the unconditional love Dave has for Treo, the unending trust that Treo, in turn, bestows on his "dad" and the great weight of responsibility that Dave feels for the other troops when he and Treo are out there searching for these murderous devices.

I have to say that the tears flowed freely - from the pure joy of the bond between man and dog, to the devastation and heartbreak that war brings, to tears of laughter at some of Treo's antics. That's definitely the Labrador coming out!!!

However, none of the above detracts from the horror of the job that Dave, Treo and every other serving soldier, dog team and member of our armed forces have to do. This book is an emotional roller coaster full of highs and lows from the authors' perspective and it definitely reaffirmed to me exactly how remarkable these men, women and dogs are.

Thank you Dave and Treo, for giving me, and everyone else who reads this book, an amazing, honest and very moving insight into life on the front line by recounting yours and Treo's story. It's certainly a book that I would read again and again.

This is by far the best book i've ever read , i found it fasinating , remarkable and at times unbelievable .
The bond between owner and dog is as i said remarkable , even more so considering the conditions and pressure both were working in . A must read , laugh out loud funny , sob out loud heartbreaking but leaves you bursting with pride over a dog you don't even know ! Brilliant .

Format: Paperback
What a brilliant account of one of the most challenging constantly life threatening roles undertaken by our troops and K9 friends. I was hooked from page one it was such a detailed account I was on an emotional roller coaster throughout. It's so easy to put it to the backs of our civilian minds what is happening in other parts of the World, how others are risking their lives on a daily basis to protect others. The total dedication and the special bond between a dog handler and dog is explained really well throughout the book. A very worthwhile read!
