Synopsis: A wonderful account in photographs and text of training a Labrador puppy, as well as a poignant memoir of love and loss.
From the Back Cover:
Dogs enrich our lives, teach us to be our better selves, and offer unconditional love as only they can. A life lived with dogs cannot be recalled without including canine companions.
Robert F. Jones has written about his dogs in previous books. There was Luke, the great black Lab who was the perfect bird dog, and a beloved friend. When Jones worried that Luke?s time was short, he brought a yellow Lab puppy, Jake, into his home. The account of Jake?s training was documented in the charming book Upland Passage.
Ten years later, Jones began to worry about Jake?s age and health. That?s when Bart came into the picture. Bart was an irascible and adorable black Lab puppy, whom the Joneses, Jake, and their Jack Russell terrier, Roz, welcomed into their home. Jones and Jake together began training Bart to become a bird dog. Gone to the Dogs was meant to be not only an account of Bart?s tutelage under Jake, but also of all the dogs in the Joneses? lives. But Jake did not live to see Bart come into his own. And worse, Robert Jones didn?t either. What began as an account of the young life of Bart, became a much deeper story about the love of dogs and their human companions, the enrichment that relationship can bring to a life, and the profound transforming effects of love and loss.
Louise Jones has completed Bart?s story and in doing so, she has offered a lasting testament to the lives of Jake and all their dogs and to her late husband, Robert F. Jones.
