Your Name is Stella Reviews
If your dog is your “best friend” and you’ve trained a puppy, this is a very delightful read. Filled with humor and enjoyable descriptive, wonderfully written anecdotes one will turn the pages waiting to see what Stella does next. I couldn’t put it down until the happy ending. Bob Moses has a gift for writing.
Mr. Moses' insights into the mind of a working dog, what is necessary to understand, shape and take full advantage of that mind and his good-natured sardonic wit make this book greater than the sum of its parts. In today's polarized animal world, it is important for real world stories of working dogs be more widely available. A largely urban and detached voting public has come to think of animals as creatures solely to be observed, certainly not used for work and never offended. If that view should prevail, 5000 years of intentional breeding designed to clarify and enhance natural aptitude would go out the window. Here is a light-hearted view into the world of a working farm dog, what it took to help her achieve her best and just how much that matters. Bravo to Mr. Moses for telling Stella's story in such a readable and clear way. She makes the case very clearly that purpose bred dogs are a human treasure we must steward carefully for the next millenia.
Robert Moses has penned another enjoyable read. "Your Name is Stella", draws you in right from the start. The author allows the reader to be immersed in this journey with his quick wit and amusing anecdotes intertwined throughout the story, all the while providing a clear understanding of how a young working breed does her job. This entertaining and at times laugh out loud story is a must read for all who are bonded to their 4-legged friends, and even those who are not.
This book was engaging from beginning to end. I bought it for my rancher uncle. I have a Nook but after reading this soft cover book I am going to keep it in my bookcase and buy another one for my uncle. It is a story laced with warmth and humor that brightened my day and I don't have a dog. It was very well done.
