    1. Before reading Bruce by Albert Payson Terhune I didn't know much about the author other than that he had been well known for his dog stories. I like dogs so when I came across this book I gave it a try.It was published in 1920, and to be quite honest, it shows its age. The frantic flag waving can be excused by how short it was since the end of World War I, but it doesn't make the read very interesting. Another thing that drags the pleasure of reading this down is the sexism. Essentially I felt t [...]


    2. The vocabulary in Terhune's books is challenging compared to today's 5th grade reading level. A sweet collection of stories about Bruce, a giant of a collie who overcomes an unattractive puppyhood to be a heroic courier dog in WWI.



    3. I remember reallying Terhune's books when I was young. The one that sticks out is Lad: A Dog. I didn't recall whether I had read this one or not. I hadn't.I kind went hot and cold with this one or maybe it should be cold and hot. There were parts I just wasn't that thrilled with. But at some point Bruce came alive. Maybe when he attacked the vivisectionist who was hurting the Mistress. Maybe when they sent him off to be a courier dog in WWI. Typical dog story - he does get hurt a couple of times [...]


    4. Heroic dog stories from the 1920's. Famous collies before Lassie. Seem to be written for earnest boy scouts from the 20's. Bruce is patriotic, loyal, energetic and smart. (He's a bit of a Mary Sue, actually.) He fights vivisectionists over here, he aids the Allies over there, always sure, he always comes out on top. And everybody loves him. (The casual racism and sexism were jarring!)I decided that this would be my first read on my e-reader because the author is (supposedly, most likely) an ance [...]


    5. The stories that Terhune tells about his wonderful collies transcend the tedious moralizing and class snobbery (characteristic of the times in which they were written) that creep into the books on occasion. This is one in a series of books that belonged to my father when he was a child, and I fell totally in love with each and every one of the dogs and cried my heart out when bad things happened to them.


    6. This is a truly heartwarming story about a collie named Bruce. Awkward as a puppy, he grows into a beautiful and intelligent dog. He is dearly loved by his Master and Mistress. His Master is in his 40s, with various health problems, and cannot serve in WWI. So they make the sacrifice and send Bruce to be trained as a courier dog. I spent many of the last half of the book in tears reading about this great dog. It does have a happy ending, though.


    7. Another one of Terhune's collie stories. This novel tells the story of Bruce from Ugly Duckling to heroic war dog. It is rather amazing reading older books to see what cultural thoughts make thier way into the novel. If you are a German, you might want to skip this one, for Terhune was writing either during WW I or just after and there are some anti-German passages. This book is more in the tradition of Wolf, though the ending is far different. It is an exciting and quick read.


    8. Ruth keeps telling me how much she loved the Terhune dog stories when she was a kid. I finally decided I had better read one. Bruce popped up first. The writing is a bit stilted for today's taste but the story is good. Reminds me a bit of "War Horse". I would recommend it to anyone who would like a nice story about a collie that is easy to read. Might also remind you of "Lassie".


    9. I've wanted to read Bruce for a very long time. As long as I can remember I've loved collies. I don't remember where that came from, but I do. Thank God for online reading sites.I cried three times.Bruce the puppy that no one believed in becomes a full fledged hero. I still have goosebumps. love!


    10. Another reread. It was okay. The language is so different than what is used today. There were a couple of great sentences. Other than that it was a little dull. I have a Collie and probably got one due to reading these books at a very young age


    11. This book is a really interesting book it really widen my vocabulary but at time the author put so much description into the book that there were parts that didn't make any sense. If you are searching for a good book with a lot of vocabulary than this is the book!


    12. Another of my dad's books that he gave to me when I was around 8. This one was harder to read for me at that age because of the descriptions of war zones in World War 1. Pretty remote for a very-sheltered child of the 1970's to understand.



    13. Surprised this didn't hit the popularity of black beauty or call of the wild. Would have been a very fun kids book to have read when younger.





    14. Excellent book. Has some really intense parts in it. Others are just amusing. My favorite part was while Bruce was in war. I recommend to anybody with a little patience.


    15. Albert Payson Terhune writs about his own dogs owned and trained. His books are very entertaining. Bruce is the first of many and should be read first.
