Bill Allen's book of fables is a truly fabulous reliving of some of his memories of dogdoms not-so-distant past. Mr. Allen recounts many of the dogs, trainers/handlers and owners, that made up a most significant era in field trialing. His prose puts the reader "in the moment" with first-hand accounts that play out vividly in ones mind. What I am reminded each time I read through this extraordinary recollection is that the game is about the dog, and that our emphasis as promoters of the breed should be to skim the cream off the top and not settle for mediocrity.

The Unforgettables and Other True Fables is in it's second printing and is available at http://www.strideaway.com/
