A heartwarming collection of stories about the dogs, cats and pets who have touched the lives of those around them
Sometimes, animals come into our lives just when we need them most. In these true stories about the powerful connections between people and pets, Jo Coudert and Jennifer Basye Sander uncover the simple joys of loving and being loved by our four-legged companions. In this book you'll meet the German shepherd with a special sense for comforting the sick; the loyal dog who risks his own life to rescue a drowning boy; the troublesome rabbit who warms her way into a new family; the chatty parrot who brings joy to the home of a lonely widow; the abandoned horse and foster child who rescue each other; and many, many more. These animals don't just bring us comfort--they save our lives. Coudert and Sander celebrate the everyday miracles that happen when we form bonds with animals. This new edition combines two charming collections--The Dog Who Healed a Family and The Dog with the Old Soul --into one beautiful gift-worthy hardcover package.
