Here is what readers have said about "Buddy System"

I found your book interesting, animated, and informative and want to share it with friends! "Jan White"

I just finished it tonight and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I am a supporter of guide dogs and they amaze me how much they are connected to their owners. Buddy was very lucky to have you, and you him, It almost seems you had a spiritual connection. "Wanda Stoner"

I have just finished reading the Buddy System book; and enjoyed every page. "Marjorie Asano"

I just finished reading it and LOVED it! It was wonderfully entertaining. I cried at the end. Thanks for sharing it with me. It is a wonderful book, especially for such a dog lover like me. "Jeannie Lagario"

I am one of many with whom you met last week at the Palm Springs Street Fair. We didn't chat too long but long enough for me to know that I would love Buddy System - and love it I did. I just finished it today. Your writing is enveloping and you kept me up reading in to the wee hours as I could not put it down. Thank you for sharing your stories of you and Buddy...I learned a lot, laughed and cried. "Suzanne Nenez"
