Thunder Dog-A Book Review

I read this book several months ago when our sales rep gave me a copy. As a dog lover I generally stay away from books about dogs lest I collapse into a heap of sobs on the floor. I prefer dogs to most people and find animals to be way better examples of how to live. This book was inspirational. It's the biographical account of a man who worked in the World Trade Center during September 11th. He is a blind businessman and that day had his seeing eye dog with him at work. It's still hard for me to wrap my brain around the events of that day. I can't even imagine being blind in the middle of all that. He tells the story of making it out alive and how his life is changed forever. The dedication of his dog is inspiring. His determination will make you want to be a better person. And by the time you turn the last page you'll remember you have no reason to complain. Fabulous.
