Book Review—I Have Heard You Calling in the Night by Thomas Healy  
This book was an easy read. I love memoirs and I love dogs, and this book was a great combination. Although, not much is learned about the dog. He was not an extraordinary dog, and he did not do great tricks or saved some damsel in distress. The dog was there to save the author from himself. Tom Healy was an alcoholic who was bent in destroying himself. He was always involved in brawls. However, upon obtaining his dog Martin, he found out what it was like to have a living being depend on him. Hence, Tom stopped drinking. There's a lot more to the book, and as I said earlier, it's an easy read. There are no chapters, only section breaks. But each section invites you to go on and read.

Sounds like another good book. I'm assuming it's based on a true story.

Yes. It's a memoir.
