Synopses & Reviews
Since the publication of the best-selling Merleand#8217;s Door,
Ted Kerasote has received thousands of e-mails asking two questions: and#8220;Have you gotten another dog?and#8221; and and#8220;Are you writing a new book?and#8221; Pukka: The Pup After Merle
answers both, in the most heartwarming way.
Told in Pukkaand#8217;s charming voice and accompanied by more than 200 photos, Pukka: The Pup After Merle tells the story of how Ted found Pukka, recounting the early days of their bonding as they explore Kelly and the wider world. Walks become hikes and hikes become climbs, their adventures culminating in a rugged wilderness journey that teaches both Pukka and Ted something new about the dog-human partnership.
Filled with stunning images of the West, Pukka is a love story as well as Tedand#8217;s take on raising a puppy. It will do pictorially what Merle did with wordsand#8212;show how dogs thrive when treated as peers while illustrating the many ways that any dog opens the door to our hearts.
"Speaking as Pukka and illustrating the sparse text with stunning color photographs on every page, Kerasote has created a pictorial diary of the first six months of the dog's life. But this book is much more than a record of the growth and training of a pup, it is a visual record of the development of human-animal bond as well as a breathtakingly beautiful tour of the West." -- Library Journal
