Angelo's Journey - Leland Dirks and Angelo Dirks
Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home - Angelo Dirks,Leland Dirks

As it happens, it was six years ago this month that Angelo, Leland Dirks' Border Collie, went walkabout for 40 days. Angelo had come to Dirks four years before, on the day after his beloved Suki was killed by a car, and brought him through his grief. Dirks and Angelo became inseparable. And then, one day, Angelo disappeared.

Grief-stricken all over again, Dirks spent days searching far and wide for his dog. And then he did what writers do in this day and age: he began a blog about his missing dog. Little did he know that Angelo was keeping his own sort of journal, and when man and dog were reunited (with the help of a UPS delivery man), Angelo helped Dirks fill in the blanks.

Okay, not really. I'm pretty sure Dirks made up a lot of Angelo's adventures. Then again, this dog had already rescued one human; who's to say he wouldn't have been saving others while trying to find his way back home?

Leland Dirks is one of my favorite writers. If you like good storytelling, or dogs, or uplifting stories, or...oh, heck. Just read this book. You'll love it.

Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Ques... Angelo's Journey: A Border Collie's Quest for Home - Angelo Dirks, Leland Dirks The interesting powers that a dog can have upon people is amazing. This short read was very touching about how one dog can touch so many different lives was very uplifting. The book cover itself just makes you want to smile as it is so simple and far-reaching. Thanks for sharing this dogs adventure, it sounds like it touched many people's hearts.
