‘Carefully Dylan picked his way upwards, waiting every now and again for me to catch up, then climbing again. His bright orange coat was only just in view as he cautiously made his way through gaps in the boulders and small slabs of granite. Higher and higher we went into the cloud and the hammering rain.’
For the last forty years, Neil Powell has worked with dogs – in mountain search and rescue, drowned victim recovery, collapsed structure searching, and optical disc and drug detection. Neil and his dogs have participated in countless searches – often in life-threatening situations – and saved many lives in Ireland, the United Kingdom and throughout the world.
But these dogs are not just heroic working animals, they are much-loved family pets with their own individual quirks and personalities. It is their remarkable bond with Neil that forms the heart of the book.
Search Dogs and Me is a heartwarming, inspiring and beautifully told story that will melt – and break – the hearts of dog lovers everywhere.
