Praise for the Books

Praise for Follow the Dog Home

 “If you love dogs, or if you like people who love dogs, you will love this deeply human chronicle of a family and its dogs.”
-Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People 

 “I often say 'There's only one greatest pet in the world and every family has that pet.' What I love about this unique book is the detailed story of '17 greatest pets' woven through three generations of a family that loves pets like family. Woven over almost three quarters of a century the constant drumbeats of this book are the value that pets bring families in making us feel good and being good for us and how dogs are connection catalysts. In this increasingly high tech world where families are often far flung, nothing helps young and old to bond quite like the love of dogs.”
-Dr. Marty Becker - "America's Veterinarian" author of 20 books,
 anchor of Vetstreet.com.
  

“We have this wonderful spiritual and emotional connection to our dogs these days, they are treasured members of our families. Our dogs teach us something every day, something that reaches everyone in the family and endures for generations. This wonderful book by the Walshes shows that home, indeed, is where the dog is. Snuggle up on the couch with your dog by your side and have a happy read of this great family story.”
 -David Frei, author of Angel On A Leash,  
the voice of the Westminster Kennel Club and the National Dog Show
 

 “After raising three golden retrievers, I've always said it's a dog's world, and the rest of us are just visiting. Kevin Walsh's heart warming new book proves my point.”
-Jackie MacMullan, ESPN Commentator, Hall of Fame Basketball Writer,
Author of When the Game was Ours & Shaq: Uncut.

 “Leave it to a dog to evoke the best in three generations' feelings of compassion, family, and humor.  Kevin Walsh brings home poignant messages without hitting us over the head with them. This book is a treat for humans.”
-Mary Mitchell, Nationally syndicated columnist,
author of The Complete Idiots Guide to Etiquette, owner of Zsa Zsa the French Bulldog 

 “If you own a dog, you'll understand. If you don't own a dog, maybe this will bring you on board. Dogs bring us together and connect generations every bit as much as baseball or old family homesteads. Kevin, Bob and Samantha Walsh connect all the dots in Follow the Dog Home. They are the dog whisperers.”
 -Dan Shaughnessy, author of The Curse of the Bambino,
Boston Globe Columnist 

 “Get me one of those dogs!”
-Mike Felger, Boston Radio & TV Host, owner of Lab Lucky
