    Friend For Life The Extraordinary Partnership Between Humans and Dogs is a very engaging book Written by the popular TV presenter Kate Humble, it straddles autobiography and her investigation into the origins of dogs as we know them, establishing how they may have adapted their behaviour throughout history, living alongside humans Kate Humble s passion for Nature, wildlife and the countryside comes through in abundance when she is on screen As she has said There s nothing like getting outside and having a bit of dirt under your nails to make you feel alive She has carved a little niche for herself in the public s perception of all things natural her dynamic personality ensuring the popularity of programmes such as Springwatch and Lambing Live , which she refers to simply as three weeks of joy , Choose The Right Puppy and Animal Park Here we discover another of her talents.In 2013 Kate Humble established her credentials as a writer in the book Humble By Nature , in which she shared her personal story of moving from the bright lights of the city to a rural environment After twenty years of living in a London town house, Kate and her husband Ludo had decided it was time for a change They left city life behind them in 2007, and moved to a farm in Wales Three years later, they heard that a nearby farm was to be sold, but not as a going concer...

    I m a real fan of the author, Kate Humble, a TV presenter here in the UK she s full of enthusiasm and humour, yet wonderfully down to earth, plus she s a great animal lover.The book is all about the history of people and dogs, and all the myriad ways in which dogs have been used by humans over the centuries Most excitingly how we use them today Butthe writing just didn t come alive for me I think part of the problem is that as a keen dog lover I was familiar with most of the careers for dogs that she mentioned I also knew most of the research she discussed Plus, while some of her lovely bouncy enthusiasm comes through in her writing, it doesn t have the charisma of her television presence I found myself trudging a bit.I think this would be a good book for someone just discovering the wider world of whoofers it has less to offer those of us already familiar ...

    I really enjoyed this book written by an attractive, enthusiastic, compassionate and extraordinary author Animal lovers would almost certainly find this a worthwhile read.

    This is a lovely read, by a journalist who seems to have a fantastic job travel around the world reporting on dogs She goes to Asia to spend a month with herders in a remote high valley, for instance But the running thread is Kate s lovely brown and white Welsh sheepdog, and whether the pair can get it together as sheep herders Living in Wales, Kate and her husband have a couple of dogs and she writes about them as well as delving into the mists of time for clues as to how our partnership began The advantage of having a wolf pack camped next door, wolves helping early humans to hunt so they could scavenge, bringing home a pup to guard the cave Domesticating foxes and wolves through careful breeding We also see how dogs helped humans through the ages, but mainly how they work today Guide dogs and...

    I always love a new animal memoir, so when I saw this for sale at my local bookstore I knew I had to read it I really enjoyed it, although I will say some parts are long winded and invariably flew off subject We get introduced to someone and then it flies off on another tangent and then back, and I got a bit lost at times This was really the only fault I found, because on the whole it was engaging and fun to read.Of course I recomme...

    Reason for reading I like Kate Humble I liked her when she presented Springwatch I liked Lambing Live, The Spice Trail, Orbit and Into The Volcano among her many other programmes I liked her book about her farm project Humble By Nature I was even taken with her when my wife, Ruth, and I stayed at the farm in 2015 I was impressed by the fact that when we went to the farm office to let them know our bathroom sink was blocked she walked over to our accommodation with me herself to check the problem, rather than send one of the other staff Standing in the bathroom of an upstairs barn conversion pointing at a blocked sink might feel slightly odd or embarrassing with some presenters writers documentary makers With her, not a bit of it She was friendly, amusing and apologetic that her sink had let us down More recently her programmes The Wonder Of Dogs, Choose The Right Puppy For You and My Welsh Sheepdog s Tale became increasingly relevant to me as Ruth and I were looking to acquire our first canine pal This book, subtitled The Extraordinary Partnership Between Humans And Dogs, was on my wish list this year along with another recent book of hers Ruth bought both of them for me for Christmas.About the book The events of the TV programme My Welsh Sheepdog s Tale are included here, acting as bookends and dividers to the rest of the material The subject matter is extraordinarily varied, encompassing how the partnership between humans and dogs developed from that of early ...

    The underlying narrative is of Kate Humble and her sheep dog Teg which manages to tie all of the other stories together and keep the book flowing The individual stories expound on the theme common to the book of how humankind has learned to use and often times rely on dogs A lovely read.

    A beautiful book covering many aspects of dogs training and working alongside people.Interlaced with training her own Welsh sheepdog Teg to work on her own sheep Her love and admiration for dogs shining through on every page
