In the second half the author gives invaluable information about finding a rescue dog (the dos and don'ts), about taking care of your dog, training, etc. She clearly has a great knowledge of her subject - as well as a great love. Behind the book is a very important message for all animal lovers. If you buy this book ( a lovely stocking present, by the way) you will be helping the Association of Cats' and Dogs' HOmes, which embraces many of the UK's animal charities, large and small. 'Doggerel' makes the perfect bedside book for lovers of dogs...and of words. A wonderful concept.
The second half of the book Angela gives invaluable information about finding and caring for a rescue dog. Throughout this section she reminds the reader of the indiscribable cruelty your dog may have experienced. This is very important as an animal lover I need to be reminded of this alien who lives on this planet, even perhaps in your road who could treat a dog in such a way.
This is a brilliant read, not a miserable depressing one. It reminds us how charities make a difference and how an individual can make a huge difference to a dog's life pulling on your heart strings but also making you laugh.
THE POEMS WERE JUST BRILLIANT AND THE ACCOMPANYING PICTURES REALLY LOVELY.
ALTHOUGH TISSUES NEEDED FOR SEVERALL STORIES LOTS TO MAKE YOU LAUGH ALSO.
AT THE BACK OF THE BOOK ARE MANY FACTS ON RESCUE DOGS AND EVERY ANIMAL RESCUE HOME SHOULD YOU FEEL THE NEED TO DO WHAT ANGELS WANTS TO ACHEIVE THROUGH THIS LOVELY BOOK.
THE FACT IS SHE WOULD LIKE EVERY ONE OF US TO THINK SERIOUSLY ABOUT CHOOSING AN UNWANTED PET AND REAPING THE REWARDS FOR DOING SO!
THANK YOU ANGELA FOR A WONDERFUL INSIGHT TO THE MANY DOGS WHO HAVE BEEN RESCUED AND FOR THOSE AWAITING NEW AND LOVING HOMES.
