Shilo is a first time author with E-mails from Shilo. Shilo lived in Southern California with his adopted Mom and Dad, however, his early puppyhood is mostly unknown.

Shilo was largely self educated. His hobbies were eating, sleeping, and chasing squirrels. Long walks and swimming were his passion. He supported all animals ready to help their human companions and dedicated his book to them and those humans who help the animals of the world.

He was a beautiful spirit and companion. He passed away on Monday, Aug. 10, 2009. He is sorely missed by Bob and Susan. They know, however, that he is joyfully playing at the Rainbow Bridge, and swimming all the time, his one true passion. (Read Bob's beautiful eulogy.)

Susan Lustig

Translator and Book Designer

Susan lives with her husband Bob Dahl in Southern California. Bob and Susan adopted Shilo when he was three years old from a Golden Retriever rescue group in Riverside, CA. After coming across some strange, seemingly encrypted files on her computer, she set off to find a program which could decipher these files, only to discover they were the writings of her very own Shilo. Adding photos to help supplement the story, she is proud to help her dog let other canines know about the history of the dog and wolf kingdom. In the interest of full disclosure, Susan wants to emphasize that she let the decryption software do most of the work, but some editing was necessary.

With a BFA from Southern Methodist University and a MFA from New York University in theatre design, Susan has spent years creating and producing theme park attractions for such companies as Universal Studios and Disney. Lately she is designing graphics and websites (Acme Digital Design), and of course doing dog language translations.

    Web design is the first thing your visitors will see. It will determine your credibility and whether or not your visitors will stay or leave. That is what most of us take into consideration so heavily. However, many of us forgot about the loading time of the page which takes about 7-9 seconds. Longer loading time will make visitors leave your site even without reading your content :D

    The key job of a doggy instructor should be trying to develop much better relation between the dog and its master and make the dog truly feel secure and recognized when listened to the owner. The most dogs frequently gets obstinate and don’t follow the language of the owner when there isn’t a lot interaction between them that could be caused due to time stress as quoted by you. So, if there is a good relation between master n the dog then there is no probs even though the dog simply takes benefit of socialization time period and ignores the class… So, I have to accept you that in canine training, more has to be trained to owner than the dog itself.

    My entire life has totally transformed since I rescued my 2 boys. I possibly could not imagine my life without having them. They may be my best friends, love me unconditionally and complete me. I’ve observed dogs save lives of despondent proprietors.
