“Do you have any idea how frustrating it is being on the wrong end of a leash with a hippie, for twelve years? What about living under the stoned hands and harsh rules in a dogtatorship? Read ‘em, bark and weep.” Vargus
You need to know that Vargus (the author) is a ‘seeing-eye dog”. Vargus led Mike through life for twelve years. Mike is simply the scribe for Vargus as we hear about life from this remarkable dog’s perspective.
Mike Yale was born in Hollywood California and schooled in Berkeley, which may explain it. He is undisciplined, creative and energetic, imbued with a social conscience and free spirit. This is Mike’s second book. No Dogs Allowed, his first, was an account of Mike’s adventures exploring in Europe before Guide Dogs were ‘allowed’.
He has written and spoken for 45 years about social justice for all marginalized people. He loves heavy metal music and believes himself to be part golden retriever.
