Hello Dan - I just finished "Our Dog T- Bone" and I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful and beautiful book it really is. I have dogs (Mona and Bogard) and I have "been saved", "reborn" whatever it’s called - but I’m a true believer. I feel blessed to have read the book and that you and your family have let the rest of us in on your beautiful inspiring story. I thank you for the book I will pass it on to my friends and family and I thank you for "autograph". Blessings to you and your family.
Great book!!! I finished it and found myself in tears a few times. I had to put my dog, Patches, down in 1998 at age 12. Thanks so much for the book, I will pass it on for my mom and sister to read.
Hey thanks for the book! I loved it......I love it when God uses people to share their stories in a way ordinary people can relate to. Thanks for sharing.
Hi there Dan. I keep forgetting to tell you that I enjoyed your book regarding T-Bone. Very touching story......and how you tied it in with the patience and love of our heavenly father was so reassuring and true. That is the love and patience that I need and pray for with my children…I believe you were supposed to send me the book to remind me of God's unfailing/unconditional love and to always apply that with my children.

Dan! I finished your book on Thursday and CRIED. What a wonderful story. I wouldn't be surprised if your readers fall in love with T-Bone, just through your sharing. AND, what a GREAT spiritual application--of separation anxiety from our own Master. I loved the way you shared the gospel in such an understandable and clear way. Thanks for sharing your book/life of T-bone with us. What a treasure.
Pulled between their frustration with the destructive behavior of their dog and a deep love for their four-footed friend, Dan and Kay struggled to keep their own "sanity" during the years of T-Bone's life. Little did T-Bone know that his story would one day be told by his master. The resulting book, complete with pictures, tugs at your heart at first reading and lingers in your memory after the last page is turned. Dan has done a commendable job of writing T-Bone's story. It is laced with humor and anchored with life-lessons that speak directly to the human species. And now Dan is taking T-Bone's story into a variety of venues as he shares it with church groups, service clubs, and other gatherings. It's a story you won't soon forget!
