Books for Dog Lovers: In Dogs We Trust


When I first met Lon Hodge and his wonder dog, Gander, at BlogPaws this year, I didn’t know of their fame. But after meeting them, I can totally understand why they are such a beloved couple. Their travels take them around the world, and Gander is their selected leader, guide to this veteran and his travels.

In Dogs We Trust: Tales of Unconditional Love, Inspiration and Service is a lovingly selected collection of short stories selected by Hodge and Gander. You’ll experience nearly every emotion as you read this anthology – from essays about the inner workings of a dog’s mind to the love and loss we all experience with our pets.

There are touching poems by authors like Marie Anton and Robert W. Hill, beautifully penned short stories from the likes of Ian Hubbard and Brandy Arnold, and truly inspiring stories of war from veterans like Kevin Hanrahan – who writes about his life with Specialized Search Dog (SSD) Honza “Bear”.

The stories will tug at your heartstrings and make you remember why you love that dog who just chewed a hole in your carpet or ate your best pair of shoes. These talented authors remind us of our love for the dogs who give so much and ask so little.

Behind it all is the voice of Lon and his wonder dog, Gander – the goofy-looking dog with a beard and eyes wise beyond his years.

Veteran traveler Lon Hodge is a former EOD trained ordnance officer, literature professor and  award winning poet. He’s now a fulltime writer and activist for suicide prevention among fellow Veterans and victims of trauma. Gander helps him do his work, helps others learn to live with trauma, and reminds us all that love comes in small packages.
