is the story of a first time handler and his German Shepherd in the NSW police dog squad. I wasn't sure I wanted to read it cause I guessed from the start the dog dies somehow and I am still pretty touchy about the subject.
I've read about half the book and have pretty much cried every few pages cause the dog in case - Merlin - does a lot of stuff that Cappy used to do. I have also laughed quite a bit.
I think it is probably a book for real dog lovers and especially GSD people.
Merlin sounded like a special dog and whilst he owner has moved on to another dog - like Cappy - Merlin will never be forgotten.
