Are you passionate about Labs? Book describes the relationships with my two recent labs. Francesca has been with me the past 12 years and Jazz was rescued from a situation in North Dakota. Fran mentored Jazz whereby he became an excellent hunter and pointer of game birds.
As hunter and dog lover, I thoroughly enjoyed Jay's description of his life with Labrador retrievers Fran and Jazz. His story of Jazz should give hope to those who have a dog who is gun shy or otherwise fearful of hunting conditions. Jay's persistence and encouragement -- combined with Fran's "leadership" -- converted Jazz from a timid and gun shy pet to an excellent retriever and upland bird dog.
After receiving this book, I read it from cover to cover while drinking my morning coffee. It was one of those books that just could not be put down once it was started. I laughed out loud at many of the stories and I cried in the parts where the bond between Jay and Francesca was so poignantly illustrated. As a fellow Labrador owner, the stories about Fran retrieving socks, shoes, and gloves is spot-on for our dog as well! I will be sure to tell fellow Labrador lovers about this book as I treat their beloved companions. Alicia Hines, DVM (Illinois)
It is often difficult for someone without a pet to fully appreciate the kind of love a person can have for an animal. If you want some insight into a relationship between a life-long hunter and his Labrador retrievers, read Is Life Worth Living Without Labs? It won’t take long to read, and it won't take long for you to sense the love, dedication, devotion, and bond between man and animal. I’ve been fortunate enough to hunt with Jay and Francesca ever since Fran was a pup, and to see this special bond first-hand--I wouldn’t trade that for anything! Wayne Melquist, Wildlife Biologist.
