I didn’t want to read it. I don’t like reading about things that are sad. But wait….the story does start out sad, but ends happy. Those are the kinds of stories I really like.
I decided to post this link to Associated Press Writer Dan Elliott’s story http://yhoo.it/bexe4z because the second book in my trilogy (the first is Fortune Puppy) is the story of a woman whose life has gone to the dogs. She’s fostered many, but when she decides to raise a puppy for Canine Companions for Independence, she has second thoughts about whether she can give up the pup. This novel reaches into the heart of a puppy raiser and the soul of a military serviceman who has returned from Iraq bruised, battered and in desperate need of love.
Can dogs get PTSD? Humans do. And for people to help both of them, well that’s a blessing.
What are your thoughts?
