Whippoorwill by Joseph Monninger


What I liked:  The dog training references were wonderfully accurate.  The book Clair uses to train Wally sounds just like a book (How to Be Your Dog’s Best Friend by the Monks of New Skete) I used years ago to train a Labrador puppy.  Dog fans are going to love this story.
What I didn’t like:  Clair continually analyzed everyone around her but did not seem to apply that awareness to herself.  She seemed too old for the story.
