Litfuse Review: Service Tails by:Ace Collins
About the Book:
Not all heroic dogs wildly toss themselves into lifesaving situations. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives.
In Service Tails: More Stories of Man's Best Hero, prolific author Ace Collins introduces us to leaders whose entire lives are wrapped in the banner of service. Their stories are remarkable snapshots of the value of vision and teamwork, as well as devotion to duty and unconditional love and acceptance-stretching the way we see both canine and human potential. Their training was intense, their loyalty unquestioned and each step of the way they constantly adapt to better serve those they lead. These unforgettable dogs are more than heroes; they are models from which we can learn how to love and serve unconditionally.
When someone went blind in the 1900's, they just went blind. They had no help to and from places other than hired help and a cane. One man by the name of Morris Frank life changed after hearing an article in the newspaper about some German Shepherds who where trained to help the blind. Thanks to his families wealth he was on the next plane ride Switzerland. A plane ride that would bring change in the hearing and sight impaired world of America.
Service Tails is an interesting book full of stories like this one. Where dog's have been trained to help those who are deaf, blind, even help someone that has asthma and vertigo. This book is full of heartfelt stories that will leave you asking for more. This book is definitely a wonderful addition to any animal lover.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I loved reading each and every story. Each story gave me another view in how much work is put into a service dog and how much work they themselves must do. I really enjoyed the visual I was given into each of these dog's and human's lives.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
