Book Review: Last Dog on the Hill: The Extraordinary Life of Lou

by Steve Duno. New York: St Martins Press, 2010.

This memoir about a wonderful dog begins in 1989 as Duno and his girlfriend spot feral Rottweiler-mix puppies, on a hill ridge in California. One makes a beeline toward them, and the puppy soon to be named Lou becomes the catalyst for Dunos new career as a pet behaviorist and well-known author. Clearly Lou was one of a kind; he not only saved Dunos life twice but also helped train (and so save the lives of) last-chance dogs. This will be greatly enjoyed by lovers of animal memoirs. Equally humorous and serious, the book portrays the duos heartwarming bond of love. (Reed Business Information, 2010)
