Title: Dog Diaries: Buddy
Written by: Kate Klimo
Illustrator: Tim Jessell

The book is about a dog named Buddy. He was the first dog that became a seeing-eye dog. The story is told as if Buddy is writing a journal and telling his story. There are more dogs than him that become seeing eye dogs, some of them are Buddy's friends.
I learned that seeing-eye dogs, especially German Shepherds are very well trained. I learned about Ms. Eustis and how she helped to start the first seeing-eye training school in 1929.
There are black and white drawings in the book and photographs at the end. I liked the photographs at the end because it showed what the real Buddy and Ms. Eustis and Morris (the first blind person to get a seeing eye dog) looked like.
I like this book. And I think people who like reading long and interesting books about animals would like this since it's actually a really nice book. People who have dogs should read this book, too.
