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. These true stories are told from the dog's perspective and then in narrative form.
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 Mans 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 childs 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 dogs actions, will touch readers hearts and will leave them with a greater appreciation for their furry friends.
