Discover what our canine companions can teach us about courage and faith! Though not trained to perform heroic acts, ordinary pets have accomplished amazing feats that defy logic---from pushing a toddler out of harm's way to tearing burning clothes off a child.

Publisher's Description

From Lassie to Old Yeller to Rin Tin Tin to Marley, dogs have stolen our attention and our hearts. In real life, our own pets are more than just canine companions; they are members of our family. And for some, they are heroes and brave servants.

In Man’s Best Hero, prolific author (and lifelong dog lover) Ace Collins provides a collection of short, dramatic stories about dogs that have gone the extra mile. Though not trained to perform heroic acts, circumstances and the remarkable bond between the dog and its owner led these animals to perform amazing feats that defy logic. Whether it is saving a drowning man, jumping in front of a truck to push a toddler to the curb, or tearing the burning clothes off a child’s back, the actions presented in these stories display courage, loyalty, intelligence, and other admirable qualities of life and faith.

These compelling portraits, told first in the words of the dog and then through exciting narrative that recounts the dog’s actions, will touch reader’s hearts and will leave them with a greater appreciation for their furry friends.

    Being a dog lover (I have four of my own) this book quickly caught my attention and I was not disappointed. This is a unique collection of thirteen stories about amazing canines from family pets to battle proven veterans. Some were mutts and some pedigreed but they all had heart and give their all to whatever was required at the moment needed.

    I loved the author's selection of the dogs included in these stories. Some were family pets who protected masters; others were in the war zone protecting our troops. Every one of the courageous dogs gave their heart and unconditional love uncannily knowing just when it was needed. Given a purpose, they all performed above and beyond what one would expect.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any animal lover. The stories are heartwarming and uplifting and written in such a fashion that they can be read and enjoyed by junior high to adult readers. It would also make a nice addition to any animal lovers' collection of favorite books.
