The way life should be for our four legged friends- Reading this I felt that sense of freedom, spirit and unconditional love that dogs want and need............. It would be a better world if they all could know a life like Merles'

Ted's book will change the way you think about dog behavior, genealogy and health forever. The story is heart-wrenchingly touching, full of detail about dogs in general, and Merle in particular. Ted's love for Merle is evidenced by the careful note-taking he made about this dog's life; he extrapolates it to how dogs learn, grow and experience fulfilled lives.

Merle's Door is easily the best book ever written about a dog. Not only did Ted Kerasote capture and express the true spirit of friendship with "man's best friend" but he also helped me mourn the death of my beloved Bandit. What a great story - what a tremendous author!!!

I would love to see Ted do a TV series. His empathy with and insight into a dog's mind would enhance the lives of all dogs and their owners. Dog Whisperer is quite popular but I feel that Ted brings more compassion and understanding from the dog's point of view.
