Echoes In The Stars (Paperback)
Boo was a predominantly white Australian shepherd. Her only handicap, aside from bone-headed bravery, was deafness in one ear. Deafness is a common disability for the lethal white variety of this breed. She was found alone in a city park, brought to an animal shelter, and ended up with a man who had never owned a dog. For fifteen years the man and dog enjoyed dog-sports, adventure, friendship, mishaps, law breaking, and (unofficial) law enforcement. This collection of stories and essays also includes a few other colorful characters who might, or may not, appreciate this honor. While Boo and her peers are the primary actors, the coyote sneaks into several stories and even demanded his own chapter. Much of the action takes place in the Front Range of Colorado and sometimes spills into other western states. Much of the setting is based on SWAG and amateur science.
