After a lab animal has endured many experiments, doesn't humanity owe it a nice retirement?
Which tests are justifiable, and which are not? Mahoney believes that although people do not have a right to test on animals, it is necessary, and since it is something that needs to be done, it should be done with compassion. Mahoney describes his efforts to improve living conditions for lab animals. Mostly, though, this book stays away from the lab and doesn't dwell on the details of the experiments. Instead, Mahoney focuses on happier things. He contemplates his relationships with several of the lab's chimpanzees, describing their distinct personalities.
He recalls times when he saved lives and took needy animals into his own home. Mahoney clearly loves animals and derives great satisfaction from his work as a healer. This book is a thoughtful account of his struggle to make sense of his life and his work. Mahoney reflects on the trials and tribulations of lab life during the period he and his wife cared for Molly, "a dog of modest origins" they came across on vacation in Jamaica and adopted.
Molly was extremely ill, practically blind in one eye, anemic and at one point seemed possibly brain damaged. Mahoney and his wife nurtured the pup as one would a sick infant, around the clock, often taking her to bed. In telling the story of Molly's miraculous recovery, Mahoney draws parallels between her plight and that of lab animals, both those in his care to whom he becomes heartbreakingly attached and elsewhere. His candid reflections reveal, as noted by ASPCA president Caras, his courage and compassion in the face of thorny ethical conflict: Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I enjoyed this book very much. Molly's tale of rescue is delightful and heartwarming. What a lucky girl she is! As a fellow animal lover who supports animal medical research, I admire Dr. Mahoney and feel deep sympathy for him in his dilemma. I believe research animals should be cared for in as kind a manner as possible and that it should be required that they be allowed a decent "retirement," but until all labs are required to include funding for that in all bids, most of these creatures, who have helped save many human lives, will continue to be treated as disposable medical waste.
Thank goodness for the rescue groups who are able to take at least a few and can allow them to finish out their lives in peace. One person found this helpful. The storyline was great! I felt like I was right there experiencing the animals with the writer. Had a bit more clinical info than I would prefer, but I sure learned a lot about animals in medical research. I would definitely read more books by this author. This book was a interesting read.
It gives you an idea of what life is like for a Research Vet is like and includes a little orphan puppy that he and his wife save. It provided information on what goes on in animal research. Not only is this book inspiring on so many levels, so is the man who wrote it, Jim Mahoney. I worked with him at the UW Primate Center in Madison many years ago and he is a truly sensitive, giving man and he so dearly loves animals. I thank God there are people like him that although they do their work on behalf of research they "police" the abuse and keep a watchful, caring eye. They are necessary and a blessing.
He is truly a great individual and I feel so lucky to have spent time with him. Love his Irish accent, sparkling blue eyes and wonderful sense of humor. God bless you Jim and thank you for sharing this wonderful book! This book is a great book about a man and a woman and the kindness of society in general. A man found a puppy with all kinds of problems in Jamaica being tossed aside and him and his wife especially did all they could to help it out. At times he goes back and forth in the book talking about his past here and there which can get anonying after awhile but I guess can be helpful as well.
There are also very sad,upsetting things talked about in this book here and there but not so much that I quit on this book before I finished it. In the ended things turned out ok. Not only for the writer of the book,but his dog Molly as well. I used to be completely against animal experimentation. I even refused to perform required disections in high school biology, and suffered the reduction in my scores because of it.

Feb 19, Cherise rated it did not like it Shelves: Oh my goodness, I thought this story was terrible. The writing, the grammar, the word choices, etc. None of it was working for me. Molly speaks like someone out this time, not at all like a 19th century widowed rancher. It's a short story, thank goodness. The characters aren't developed and the whole story seems disjointed and reads as a rough draft rather than a final copy.
It's in desperate need of a good editor. Some of the descriptions and situations made me laugh out loud. At one point Molly Oh my goodness, I thought this story was terrible. At one point Molly describes her lover's penis as 'bumpy'. I really felt like I was reading sex scenes written by a virgin who likes porn yet has never experienced any of it, personally.
It really came off as juvenile and lacked any real feeling. The happily ever after at the end seemed rushed and silly, not at all believable. I am surprised at all the praising views of this story, because it is easily the worst thing I have read so far this year. It's very rough - definitely needs some work.
Cherise Everhard, February Feb 24, Tracy rated it did not like it. I always do my best to find something positive about a book, but I can't do that in this case. The mechanics are horrendous. Periods are randomly placed, quotation marks over-used and I can only assume the author's apostrophe key was broken "you're" is always "your".
The characters are shallow and we never learn enough about them to even know if they'd actually be attracted to one another, let alone how they actually come to be in love over the course of two? The love scenes are awkward I always do my best to find something positive about a book, but I can't do that in this case.
The love scenes are awkward at best, comical at worst. The only explanation I can come up with is that the author is a non-English speaking male that tried to use translation software, because the female point of view during the intimate situations is hideously wrong. I don't know what book the people giving this book five stars are reading, but it certainly is not this one.
Please do not encourage more of this garbage to be written by purchasing this. Nov 18, Laurie rated it liked it Shelves: Great beginning to the story as well as situations that Molly is in.
