About the book (provided by Litfuse) Serrvice Tails (Abingdon Press, August 2016)
Heart-tugging true stories of the courage, faith, and loyalty of remarkable service dogs.
Not all heroic dogs wildly toss themselves into lifesaving situations. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives.
In Service Tails: More Stories of Man’s Best Hero, prolific author Ace Collins introduces us to leaders whose entire lives are wrapped in the banner of service. Their stories are remarkable snapshots of the value of vision and teamwork, as well as devotion to duty and unconditional love and acceptance–stretching the way we see both canine and human potential. Their training was intense, their loyalty unquestioned and each step of the way they constantly adapt to better serve those they lead. These unforgettable dogs are more than heroes; they are models from which we can learn how to love and serve unconditionally.

And I thought . . .
Ace Collins had me with the cover. As soon as I was offered
this book I signed up!
And I was not disappointed. Service Tails is filled with heart
warming stories that reminded me of the Kitchen Soup
series only much better.
There are 12 stories. Most of the stories are 16-20 pages
long. Making it simple to each story as a chapter.
There are a few photo's.
I really liked that each story began with a quote and the a
graphic of dog foot prints.
This is a great book. I recommend it as a gift book for dog
I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse in exchange for my hones review.
