Adventures with Durango Pete

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Stephen and his wife, Cynthia, went to a puppy adoption event near their Colorado home to look at a terrier. Instead, the tiny squeaks begging for attention came from an 8-week-old cattle dog crying, “Pick me up!” Stephen did. The puppy licked him up the nose, across his cheeks, and in his ears. The deal was sealed. Durango Pete had a new dad and Stephen was in for a wild ride. Durango Pete and Stephen were soon locked into a battle of wills. The struggle for power and control is a quintessential human fight. It turned out to be the same for a man and his new dog. After months of frustration - desperation even - a simple game of tug-of-war was the turning point. “Adventures with Durango Pete” is the story of how two stubborn souls found each other and discovered what a dog can teach an old man, and he a dog. Join them on the dusty trails and mountain peaks, and find the joy that blossoms from a true partnership of souls.
Reviews
Joyce Leake, Internationally known animal communicator and author

Every book has a theme and Adventures with Durango Pete’s beautifully illustrates its own; all relationships regardless of complexities, have the potential to develop and grow.

As author, Stephen Hinman, and his complex dog, Durango Pete, venture nature’s challenging trails the reader is reminded of life’s similar parallels; to succeed one must relinquish vulnerable grips.

Devotion to another. Willingness to listen. Promise to step up. And determination to follow through.

A dog, a real dog, Durango Pete’s too-close to nature’s DNA demands this of his person. And, his person, too-close to his dog willingly acquiesces. It is simply the right thing to do.

The reader is quickly informed of Pete’s demands; learn to understand me, comply with what I need and we can be the best of partners. His give to the author is, “You do this for me and I will teach you a depth of love and compassion you have never experienced before”.

Read this book. Learn from your dog. Learn about yourself.

It simply is the right thing to do.
