This book would not have been possible without the support of my husband, Bradford J. Wood, M.D. Brad provided me with a never-ending supply of patience and emotional and financial support. In spite of having very limited free time because of his work as a family physician, he gave it up without complaint to take the photographs for the book. He is truly "the wind beneath my wings."

A special thank you must go to my good friend, Nancy Heckman. She proofread the entire first manuscript and the parts I rewrote for this book. When I needed to talk about my writing, Nancy patiently listened on our many dog walks together. Our dog walks keep me sane!

Because I wanted a variety of dogs in the pictures for this book, I had to ask for the help of many friends to pose for them. I want to thank all of them and their cooperative dogs for their time and patience. I especially want to thank the members of the Carlisle Dog Club, who were all very supportive. I also want to thank all of my students and their dogs from whom I have learned what I shared with you in this book.

As I have worked on the changes for this Making Friends, my beautiful, faithful Irish Setter, Kyra, has always been lying right beside my chair. Now, that's a friend.

Making Friends could not have been written without the help of many friends, both canine and human. Thank you to all of them!
