Merle's Door : Lessons from a Freethinking Dog
Now including a wonderful new photo insert chronicling Merle's life, this national bestseller explores the relationship between humans and dogs. How would dogs live if they were free? Would they stay with their human friends? Merle and Ted found each other in the Utah desert- Merle was living wild and Ted was looking for a pup to keep him company. As their bond grew, Ted taught Merle how to live around wildlife, and Merle taught Ted about the benefits of letting a dog make his own decisions. Using the latest in wolf research and exploring issues of animal consciousness and leadership and the origins of the human-dog relationship, Ted Kerasote takes us on the journey he and Merle shared. As much a love story as a story of independence and partnership, Merle's Door is tender, funny, and ultimately illuminating

1 . WOW!
Posted December 25, 2010 by Karen , WhitbyI very rarely, if ever, give "anything" a perfect score...this is one of those rare occasions. The book was given to me as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and I am now new to eReader and felt compelled to write a review.
I have always been an animal person so it isn't too hard to grab my heart and run away with it, leaving me in a sobbing pile of mush.
I have honestly never read anything like "Merle's Door" and dare say maybe I never will again. Ted brings you right into his living room, and beyond for that matter. After reading this book I almost felt I knew him. He brings you right there beside him and you feel all his emotions, emotions that us animal owners and lovers have all felt at some point and time. My macho husband is afraid to read it, he is a dog/animal lover as well and after seeing my reaction......
Ted learns much from Merle and Ted shares those learnings and respect with us.Ted even goes a few steps further and talks about ancestry and some canine science. An interesting addition, I must say.
It is the classic "man (boy) and his dog" tale.
I have read some of Ted's other "writings" and it is no wonder he is an award winner!
It is a must read.
And, as an added bonus to the readers out there, Ted DOES respond to his emails. ENJOY the book everyone.
