    1 thought on “Adventures with Ari: A Puppy, a Leash & Our Year Outdoors”

    1. This book is very informative about nature and seeing it through a dog's eyes. It is a documentary of adventures of Kathryn Miles and her half Husky, half Jindo dog, Ari, for a year while living in Maine. The author not only shares about her dog but also gives a lot of information about the things they discover together in nature and how she learned to enjoy the moment from Ari. She also had a cat that died which was very sad and brought back memories of when our cat died, but balanced out the s [...]

    2. Adventures with Ari was just a delightful novel and I loved watching Kate become a ‘dog person’. I read one review on this site that the reader was annoyed that the author went on ‘tangents’. To that reader, I must say that they missed the entire point of the novel. Ms. Miles did not go on ‘tangents’, she, like Ari, smelled something interesting and followed her nose to the information. Information that varied from the process of decomposition, feral statistics of domestic pets, and [...]

    3. This is a good book about a couple's first year with their pup in the wilderness of Maine and how the author is trying to see the world from the dog's perspective. :)

    4. Three-and-a-half stars. Very different from Marley and Me. After the first few chapters, I was convinced I would not like this book. The author has decided that this first year with her dog will be some sort of social experiment in seeing nature in a different way--through the eyes and experiences of her dog. She constantly refers to Ari as "the caninaturalist," which is a bit annoying. And boy, does she go off on tangents! When she chases after Ari in the woods and discovers her eating a deer c [...]

    5. This book was about one woman's adventures with an exotic Jindo pup that she brings home and calls Ari. This is all about them going on walks in the woods together, and becoming bonded with each other in the great outdoors. Ari us full of curiosity,which takes Kathryn into the wilderness with Arid into a delightful year that you will never want to forget. It was a nice read, and full of the timeless outdoors true story theme and discovery in each other that any dog lover will enjoy.

    6. Whether you are a dog lover or not, Adventures with Ari is a fascinating journey of the natural world with Ari, the jindo-mix dog and Kate, her owner/companion, as your guides. The setting is in central Maine, where I have lived most of my life, and it truly made me look around at my surroundings and take notice. I learned not only about the environment and how we affect it, but also how much our relationships with our companions (both 2-legged and 4-legged) affect US.

    7. Ok, it took me almost a year to read this book, not because it was terrible, but because it was the kind of book you read a while, then put down and read other books. I finally finished it, and in the end I really liked it. I liked the was Kathryn Miles told a story, but also weaved in research with her story. I would like to read it again someday without long breaks in between.

    8. This book reminded me of the importance of reconnecting w/ nature & the importance of taking my dog for a long walk whenever I have the free time to do so. It helped me to value every kind of life out there. Although I felt like the author excessively went off topic, I still very much enjoyed this book.

    9. It is hard to not like this book, the author is so earnest. I liked her stories and how she used them to segue into the topic at hand. Her solution to the deer carcass problem was hilarious, I will have to remember that trick for my own pups!

    10. You know when you're reading something academic, and you wonder if it all came from a few simple experiences? This is like that. While this isn't an entirely academic text, the overarching terms take me back to uni. Canine naturalism indeed.

    11. Although Miles' attention to detail when it comes to her canine-naturalist observations sometimes seems like overkill, the story itself is charming and the observations interesting.
