I actually read this months ago but forgot to mark it as read or write a review for it Which probably says somethingI am a dog lover I think I ve made that clear I enjoy stories about animals and about their own stories of hope I myself have a big 95 pound monster that I don t know how I could live without and thinking of him being hurt is like thinking of my kid being hurt So I understand why people get crazy about their animals And this is the second animal memoir I ve read Both of them dealt with the everyday life of dealing with a pet that was both a rescued and bdisabled in some way I enjoyed this book better than Homer s Odyssey partly because I am a dog person and partly because this author was far less irritatingLarry Levin really writes his memoir about himself and his family and their eventual adoption of Oogy into that family so the book was not only about the dog which I think helped with my enjoyment of it He and his wife adopted twin boys several years before adopting a disabled dog He spoke very openly about his fears of fatherhood and the idea that his kids may not feel as accepted because of the fact that they were adopted However this family I read about had such warmth and life to them I couldn t help but fall a little in love with all When they finally adopted Oogy the twins found a kindred spirit with him immediately perhaps owing to their own adopted status The way they all accepted and loved this dog right off the bat was very heartwarmingLarry and the twins meet Oogy when they took their beloved cat to the vet to be put down They were devastated and emotional but on their way out saw this dog that they instantly fell in love with He was missing an ear and part of his jaw looked beat up and mangled and was perhaps the ugliest dog they had ever seen But the energy and the love given off by him was immediate and sucked them in All three knew that he was theirsAnd so begins life with Oogy filled with funny stories touching memories and lots of obstacles in the road Oogy was a Dogo Argentino similar to a pit bull but larger and friendlier puppy that was used as a bait dog in an underground dog fighting ring When the raid happened that broke up the ring Oogy was completely mangled and clinging to life A veterinary surgeon saw something in the pup that was worth saving and refused to give up on him saving his life nursing him back to health and providing countless hours of therapy in the hopes that he could have a somewhat normal life There really are still good people in the worldThe story of where Oogy came from really broke my heart especially since knowing that these types of things happen all the time And Oogy was really one of the lucky ones So many innocent pups die all the time because greedy humans use them for their own selfish means A rage unlike anything I ve felt hovered over me constantly as I was reading about Oogy s recovery It is amazing how little humanity some humans can have sometimesAll in all I enjoyed this story very much It was not the most action packed or page turning story in the world but it definitely tugged on my heartstrings Seriously how could you not love this The Sacred Art Of

Read & Download ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free à Larry Levin Larry Levin à 5 Summary characters ¶ Oogy The Dog Only a Family Could Love 105 In the bestselling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death and the family he adopted In 2002 Larry Levin and his twin sons Dan and Noah took their terminally ill cat to the Ard Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got b. Sweet story but not a great book Author spends way too much time in the first half of the book talking in far too great detail about things other than the dog on the cover Don t get me wrong I don t mind hearing about the author s children a bit but it uickly got tedious and dull I really don t read books about dogs to find out how you put a child s car seat in your vehicle Also I get what the author was going for with the first chapter showing his morning routine with Oogy and his family but it suffered from far too much detail Overall I found the writing to be pretty sub par I had the urge to skim the text freuentlyMost of the book does concentrate on the story of Oogy which was interesting enough though little of the author s thoughts seemed all that new to me And it was very frustrating to read about the author making so many mistakes raising his dogwithout every acknowledging most of them He came off as a complete canine newbie who is barely any educated by the end of the book But it all turned out okay so I m not pulling my hair out TOO much Still I cannot stand the idea that the author seems to be operating under that there is no other way to raise a dog besides either with fear pain and deprivation which he euates with the concept of discipline showing his unnuanced and wrong headed education on the subject or as the author does to give the dog no discipline no boundaries and pretty much let the dog run roughshod over the house and almost constantly dictate the behavior of the human part of the family I also found it utterly frustrating that after Oogy slips his collar and runs off the author apparently doesn t ever change to one of the styles of collar a dog can t slip free from because a few chapters later the dog has slipped free again This seems utterly stupid to me And it isn t so small a thing unless your dog is trained to without fail freeze on command slipping loose can be very dangerous in a city full of cars people who steal dogs and people who fear any pit bull looking dog and can t read canine body language and might esp without the dog s owner present misinterpret an overexcited friendly dog as an aggressive one A type sadly that so many people the author talks about throughout the book seem to be Thankfully they also happened to be the unarmed typeIt was however very cool to read about a breed I had never heard of before and Oogy does seem like a very cool dogThere are also parts of this book where the author talks about public life with a dog perceived to be a pit bull that I found affecting I m not new to the level of prejudice and ignorance that people have about this breed but this was a fairly depressing reminder So if you like this sort of book it s worth a readif you ve already read the other better books for one amazing book I recommend Last Dog on the Hill The Extraordinary Life of Lou by Steve Duno in the dog story genre I m glad I checked this out from the library it isn t a one to buy
