Skidboot The Amazing Dog is One Amazing Book!
posted 7 years ago
Author Ron Westmoreland, with the late, great Skidboot's favorite person, Texas farrier David Hartwig, tells Skidboot's story in a way few would do: totally truthfully.
Written partially from Skidboot's point of view, this is a 137-page quick read, but one you'll likely want to reread and savor.
Many are familiar with Skidboot from his days on PetStar and his videos, which may be viewed at YouTube.com, PetPlace.com, Skidboot.com, and many other places on the Internet. Skidboot never failed to amaze his audiences, but he remained totally fixed on David. Even with the "lights of Hollywood" trained on him, he was oblivious to the rest of the world, because his world was David.
Laid to rest in March 2007, Skidboot was David's "dog of a lifetime" and the inspiration for many to "train" their already-intelligent dogs in a new way: acknowledging and accepting that their pet already knows many words and their meanings, and building upon that foundation.
Skidboot The Amazing Dog is a delightful book, a book that will trigger many emotions in the reader and will make Skidboot's legendary life eternal, for as long as people remember Skidboot, they will know how much their pets are capable of -- and how priceless their years together really are, to both them and their pets. God bless Skidboot and David!
Pros: Amazing and True! Blue Heelers are very intelligent
Cons: none known
