This poignant tale of a spunky Australian terrier's heroic battle with cancer is both touching and riveting. And, it is a "page-turner" in the best sense of the phrase. The authors guide us through the struggle, joy, frustration, and ultimate success of Sparky's life, disease and cure. We come away with not only a large "Hurrah!" for Sparky - a lovable, yet individually willful canine with not a little quirkiness - but with a profound regard for his courageous master and mistress in their unwavering determination to explore every avenue that might provide a cure for their beloved pet.
While the owners' devotion to Sparky is palpable, the well-structured writing style is informative and researched, yet happily peppered with anecdotal humor as the dynamic between pet, master, and veterinarian are cleverly woven throughout. Dog lovers will laugh and cry over the telling of this book. But, to Clerens and Clifton's credit, the text never languishes into raw sentimentality. The meld of the scientific and emotional are united in an intelligent focus. In a supremely readable style, the authors present a compelling rendering of the joys and sorrows that come from loving a dog. At the book's conclusion, the reader will have bonded with both dog and masters.
Here is a hearty recommendation for a book in which all dog lovers will take pleasure, and those whose pets face a similar crisis as Sparky's, will savor.
