My lifelong experience with man’s best friend includes forty years as owner of Canada's largest canine security company. With hundreds of dogs, and hundreds of security officers over the years, there have been myriad humorous events; some hilarious, some bizarre. Now that I’m retired, I find myself recalling and chuckling, so rather than laugh alone, I have documented them here. Enjoy!

This is the story of a seventy-five year long obsession with dogs that documents funny moments from the beginning, when a one-year-old gets his first dog, and continues through the establishment and growth of Canada’s largest canine security company.

There are some pretty tense moments when an officer and his dog are facing down bad guys, with narc dogs exposing the stashes of drug dealers, and when responding to a bomb threat with explosives detection dogs; but there are some funny stress-relieving moments too. It is those moments that this book is all about.

I also include chapters on hilarious interactions between the dogs and our unusual pets; our ducks that feared water, and the adventures of our retired TV star pony.

And from my days as owner of an advertising agency, there are stories about ‘Lions and tigers and bears, oh my’, featuring exotic animals that I employed in my promotions.
