Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote
I finished this book today. It was pretty good. Not quite as good as I was expecting, but I mostly enjoyed it. Merle is a stray dog who is taken in by the author. There are stories about their life together and a lot of information about animal behavior research. Sometimes the research info got a little tedious, but a lot of it was interesting. And of course, since dogs live so much shorter lives than people do, it had a very sad ending. Merle was an exceptional dog, who reminded me of our previous lab (Ralph) in some ways. I would rate this book 3 out of 5.
