'Lou's story is an emotional and deeply felt tribute to the powerful bond between dogs and humans. Last Dog on the Hill will make you long for that one special super-dog that can truly change your life. We should all be so lucky to have a dog like Lou in our world.' --Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
"Last Dog on the Hill is a wonderful mixture of humor, heartbreak, and high jinks. I couldn't put it down. Lou will steal your heart." --Janet Evanovich, New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series
"When making your pile of 'best dog stories ever,' make space for another one. This book is great! Lou is a real working dog, not just a pile of emotive fluff. His exploits and accomplishments are nothing short of heroic. You will cheer for this dog and the fullness of his life. The relationship between Steve Duno and Lou is remarkable. We all want to know a dog like Lou. Here's your chance. There is a tear or two, but they are tears of joy for lives well-shared." --Greg Kincaid, author of A Dog Named Christmas
"There's nothing whispery or mysterious about the connection between Steve Duno and his remarkable Rottweiler mix Lou. It's a full-voiced love story, a vigorous tale of rescue and mutual redemption, and an eloquent human-canine conversation that grows richer and deeper through the years. Last Dog on the Hill reminds us not only how much dogs can learn, but more importantly, how much they can teach us about the things that really matter -- loyalty, honor, hard work, and plenty of sheer delight." --Steven Winn, Author of Come Back, Como: Winning the Heart of a Reluctant Do
"Everyone needs to experience a dog like Lou; and every dog needs a person like Steve Duno. Last Dog on the Hill is one of those rare animal memoirs that isn't sentimental, yet moves the reader to tears as easily as laughter. It also makes me wonder how many vocabulary words my dog knows."
--Susan Wilson, author of One Good Dog
"If Jack Reacher had a dog, he'd be Lou. If Jack Reacher were a dog, he'd be Lou." --Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
"There are so many accounts and testaments that verify beyond doubt that a dog is man's best friend. What makes this story special is that Lou, in terms of fate, was destined for a rough and unspectacular life. Lou and Steve found each other by sheer chance. Lou's life was richer for being Steve's dog, but the real twist of fate is how Steve's life and the lives of all those who knew Lou, were enriched forever." --Nuala Gardner, author of A Friend Like Henry: The Remarkable True Story of an Autistic Boy and the Dog That Unlocked His World
"Anyone who has ever loved or lost a dog, or both, will be touched by this spellbinding story about two beings who crossed the human-dog divide and met on the other side." --Stefan Bechtel, author of Dogtown: Tales of Rescue, Rehabilitation and Redemption
"Steve Duno describes Lou and himself as `neither dog nor human but family, just family.' Anyone who has ever loved with their heart wide open will want to come along for this ride. Unpredictable, heroic and funny...just like Lou." --Monica Holloway, author of Cowboy & Wills: A Love Story
'Terrific true story about a trainer and behaviourist Steve Duno's very special dog of a lifetime. Nearly overlooked as a sickly, tic-infested stray, Lou becomes mentor, trainer, bodyguard, crime fighter, and career and life-changing friend.' --Your Dog magazine

Steve's writing style is easy and pacey; his descriptions of Lou's behaviour and body language (conversation, even? "Rower!") are as good a characterisation of a dog as I've ever read. Even if you're not a dog lover you will feel you know him and those of us who share our lives with dogs find ourselves nodding and smiling throughout. There are also descriptions of some of the problem dogs Steve and Lou worked with and snippets of information useful to those of us who live with less than perfect specimens.
Once in a lifetime there comes along your "heart dog" - the canine equivalent of "The One" - and it seems that Lou was Steve's. The sense of wonder and gratitude that Steve has for Lou's presence in his life is powerful throughout the book, but it's also Steve's story with its highs and lows. I can recommend "Last Dog on the Hill" as a thoroughly good read for everybody.
