Reviews
"From The Mouths Of Dogs speaks to the special bond between human and pet, and deftly illustrates the underlying emotional current that truly makes dog man's best friend."--Eric Christensen, Volume One--Eric Christensen"Volume One" (11/11/2015)
"This inspiring study is recommended for animal lovers, and for lovers of life in general."--Portland Book Review
--Don Messerschmidt"Portland Book Review" (02/04/2016)
"An honest, heartwarming choice for animal lovers."--Eric Liebetrau, Kirkus --Kirkus (06/28/2015)
"Readers of this book will come away with new knowledge and respect for both dogs and the humans that love and care for them. The stories are easy reading and can be read one chapter at a time without losing your place. Definitely a winner."--Kyle Wendy Skultety, GimmethatBook.com-- (11/03/2015)
"Part anthropology, part ethnography, part memoir, fully awesome, From the Mouths of Dogs is one of the loveliest, smartest, and most intimate celebrations [and] interrogations of heartbreak . . . that I've read in quite some time. . . . Hollars brilliantly reveals us as a species with equal need for the body and the dust, for history, for memory, for miracle."--Matthew Gavin Frank, author of Preparing the Ghost-- (03/04/2015)
"B.J. Hollars allows us intimate glimpses of dog-human relationships that are not usually in public view: behind the scenes at a shelter, in a home for senior dogs, or in the makeshift pet cemetery at his childhood home. Any animal lover will eagerly absorb these stories of love, compassion, and, inevitably, grief."--Brenda Miller, author of Blessing of the Animals-- (03/04/2015)
