Tributes To The Companions
Who Give Us Love, Loyalty, and a New Leash on Life
Our dogs really rescue us every day--whether they're pulling our children out of wells, or standing by our side during tough times.
In this moving story collection, you'll meet fifty unforgettable dogs who have earned the love, the respect, and the admiration of their human caretakers.
And, one of the featured dogs in this book is Turbo, our heroic Navajo Indian Nation canine, who is not only one of the most intelligent dogs that I’ve ever had the privilege to know, but one of the most compassionate, toward all living beings. His story is entitled: Turbo, Our Extraordinary Canine Hero.
This new book of 50 very inspiring dog stories reminds us all that every dog has his day -- and that courage, canine-style -- comes in all colors, shapes, sizes, and breeds.
A Few of The Heroic Dogs In This Book:
Widget, a wiry little terrier who alerted her master that a poisonous snake was coiled to strike her daughter
George, an abandoned, oversized, loopy white dog with no particular talents beyond graciously mentoring brother and sister foster dogs, including an annoying litter of six coonhounds
Skip and Obie, two abused dogs whose former owners poured lye down their throats, but who now bestow their rescuers with daily kisses and hugs
And, of course, Our Turbo Dog
