    When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing Merle--who died too soon--he knew that he would want to give his puppy the longest life possible. Combining cutting-edge research with narrative, Kerasote offers answers that will surprise you. He provides new information on whether a purebred can be as healthy as a mixed-breed, whether you should say no to yearly vaccines and spaying or neutering, and how to pick the best food. Kerasote helps us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions, interweaving science with the stories of raising Pukka among his many dog friends in their small Wyoming village.--Excerpted from publisher description.
