Last Dog on the Hill

The Extraordinary Life of Lou

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The moving story of the author's adopted Rottweiler mix, Lou, a free-thinking heroic dog who changed his life forever

Born of guard dogs on a secret marijuana farm in Mendicino County, Lou truly was one dog in a million. On the winter day that the ailing, tick-infested feral pup was rescued by Steve Duno, neither dog nor man had a clue as to what they were getting into, or where the relationship would lead.

Last Dog on the Hill tells the story of an indigent young Rottweiler mix who, after abandoning his pack and the hills of his birth, went on to change the lives of hundreds of people and dogs, including the author's, whose career as a behaviorist and writer was made possible through Lou's extraordinary intelligence and heart. Lou won the respect of gang members, foiled an armed robbery, caught a rapist, fought coyotes and kidnappers, comforted elderly war veterans and Alzheimer patients in their final days, taught ASL to kids, learned scores of unique behaviors and tricks, amassed a vocabulary of nearly 200 words, helped rehabilitate hundreds of aggressive dogs and saved them from euthanasia. He was also a clown, consummate performer and Steve's best friend for sixteen years. His story will make readers laugh and cry in equal measures.

Great book & writer!

Easy read. And if you love dogs, you just get it.

Wonderful book

This is a great book! Worth the time for anyone who has loved a dog from puppyhood to adulthood to geriatric......I believe dogs do have a soul and therefore go to Heaven...they have to. It would just be boring without them......they give us a glimpse of God. Thanks for sharing your story of this wonderful had to be hard to write.

Thank you

I loved the book! I really enjoyed reliving Lou's life with you. I bet you can't wait to arrive at Rainbow Bridge...perhaps I will see the two of you there when I reunite with my beloved dog Mishka! Thanks again and God bless you!
