Gone to the Dogs: Life with My Canine Companions
by: Jones, Robert F & Jones, Louise
First there was Luke, the great black Lab who was the perfect bird dog, and a beloved companion. When Robert Jones worried that Luke's time was short, he brought a yellow Lab puppy, Jake, into his home. The account of Jake's training and Luke's end was documented in the highly praised Upland Passage. Ten years later, Jones began to worry about Jake's age and health. That's when Bart came into the picture. Bart was an irascible and adorable black Lab puppy that the Joneses and Jake and their Jack Russell terrier Roz welcomed into their home. Jones and Jake together began training Bart to become a bird dog. But Jake did not live to see Bart come into his own. And worse, Jones didn't either. What began as an account of the young life of Bart became a much deeper story-about the love of dogs and men, and the enrichment that relationship can bring to a life, and the profound transforming effects of love and loss. Louise Jones has completed Bart's story and in doing so, she has offered a lasting testament to the lives of Jake, and her late husband, Robert F. Jones. Color photos. 80 pgs.
