nuntiogiodrawig.cf/map26.php I guess walking a dog is sort of like walking yourself Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Firstly I am a dog lover or why else would I read this title. The stories are okay but not enough details about the dogs. A little diappointed but an easy read. Sorry to say I didn't finish the book yet because it was too slow. I promise to get back to it later.
I was a NYC dog walker in the same area of town albeit a few years before this walker started. Parts of what he says are true but so much of this book is bunk. Also, I know this is of little importance, but there were loads of typos. I was expecting more from this book, it left me disappointed. One person found this helpful.
Rodrigo has written a very moving and emotional account of his journey thus far in the world. He has shared his experiences with both humans and animals in ways that touch the heart and knot the stomach. It takes some people a lifetime to learn the lessons of life, and some never do. Rodrigo appears to have risen above the personal struggles we all face, indeed he has triumphed in the face of very difficult experiences early in life. For a person from another country whose first language is not English to have written and published a book at all is an exceptional accomplishment!
Of course there may be some instances of reader disagreement with some passages, as there would be with any true face-to-face conversation. Despite this, I believe that this man can truly talk to and understand animals, and all persons should strive to achieve that outstanding ability, if they truly wish to experience a relationship with their animal partners in life. We do see too many instances of animals being treated as human fashion accessories, and this should be as much of an outrage to us as any other exploitation or abuse.
Expressing heartfelt emotions of anger, frustration, impatience and even contempt are just as difficult to put into words as are more positive emotions of love, compassion and joy. Indeed they are equally appropriate as well. In no way would the words "juvenile rant" be applicable in reference to this book or this author.
This book is presented in a passionate, fiercely loyal voice. Anyone who has ever loved an animal can recognize that at once. I look forward to gaining further insight and knowledge from Rodrigo, both in person and from his written works to come.
As a committed dog lover, I was looking forward to some new insights from someone who handles dogs on a daily basis. I was disappointed in this author's poorly written pages spelling, grammar, sentence structure as well as his limited, highly opinionated and incorrect comments about veterinary care, feeding, and canine behavior. It was more of a juvenile rant, rather than the words of an informed adult.
I appreciate the author's love for dogs, but this book lacks real substance. It evokes a wide realm of emotions and ultimately shows that hard work, honesty and integrity allowed this Protagonist to succeed while sharing his love and discipline with his dogs and their owners.
Anyone who reads this book will cheer for this 'under dog'. I highly recommend this brilliant book. I want him to be my dog walker!
This amazing REAL story open my eyes and brougth me closer to my dogs,I cried,laugh and get angry reading this fabulous stories that this dog walker lives on this magical dog world I recomend to dog owners to read it,if you care for your dog you need to know what this smart man is teaching us I thank him and wish him much succes! This is story dear to my heart. Richer has a way of letting the hand he was dealt become the winning hand. I cried and laughed.
