5.0 out of 5 stars Best Read of the Year!!!!, 10 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's All About Treo: Life and War with the World's Bravest Dog (Hardcover)
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.

Wow! I am about to purchase my copy of this amazing story of one brave soldier and his very brave dog. I can't wait to read this and will be back with my review, once read. I saw Treo and his owner on a news piece last week and am looking forward to reading this wonderful book. I have the greatest respect for all of our service men and women, and most certainly for their courageous companions.
