Ralf is an entertaining read, full of warm glow stories about the difference this big black dog has made.
Saturday Age

Ralf's story is heart-warming and inspiring, and is full of amusing antics of this endearing animal. It is a true tale of how the love of a human owner can change a dog's life and how the love of a dog can bring hope to those who need it most.

The book's appeal to dog lovers is obvious, but it is also rich with detail about the patients Ralf has encountered and is an enjoyable read.
