Crusoe's new book is even better than his first - it is a MUST READ. I preordered it, so it was on my doorstep as soon as it came out. This is my first day home from the hospital after having a heart attack, and it was so nice to spend the day with Crusoe. I laughed, I traveled vicariously and saw the world from a 14" point of view, and I even cried reading his letter to Laffie, thinking of all the loved ones I've had cross the Rainbow Bridge as well. Having just survived a heart attack myself, it was hard to read about his IVDD, but Crusoe, I promise to try to be as strong as you and Mum were and get better, too. When I first read in your blog the IVDD after it happened I was so sad, and I followed your recovery every day - Borat mankini and all. I've had 2 of my own who had to face that surgery and recovery, so I knew the fight you were facing. I was actually one of those fans waiting in line to meet you, Oakley, Mum and Dad in the Smokies, so I know that the book portrays the real you - classy, sweet and kind - and the real Oakley, too - a great little kisser. For me, on this day, my favorite part was from Branff: "For the first time I understood that I would never get the chance to conquer all those mountaintops...yet, somehow, I had come to accept that. Sometimes it's about where you are, looking our from the peak on which you stand to appreciate the world around you and the people around you." So yes, this book rocks. If you've never heard of Crusoe before, or if, like me, you are a confirmed fan, read it. It will take you to places you'd never see without it, and make you feel highs and lows from a celebrity dachshund's point of view. What could be more fun? And Ryan, don't worry. Thanks to you and Mum, Crusoe is not just loved by millions besides yourselves. He is immortal.
