An engaging Short Story Collection (aprox. 23,500 words) for dog-lovers and fans of Inspirational fiction; inspired by the search and rescue dogs of the soul. Based on the first one-hundred posts of a devoted Dog-blogger. Now with a seventh story! A pawsitively dog-friendly beach-read (even if your beaches aren’t). A portion of all downloads will go to help some animals in need.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is a terrific book. Thought since it was all short stories I could read a little at a time but ended up zooming through it, totally hooked after the first story. Now I wish I had more. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t be able to relate to the stories. All a little different.


This is a nice read. Although it is about dogs, it isn’t just for dog-lovers as many will relate to its content. The book, with its very-human themes explores some tough subjects and like a “Quantum Leap” you are in someone else’s shoes with each new experience. It is inspirational without being preachy. A story like “Human Directional” brings into focus the underside of the pet shop industry and the deplorable conditions of puppy mills. “The House of the Happy Dog” the longest of the stories is for those who were born asking for a dog. It is emotionally rewarding.


I found all of the stories in this book absolutely heartwarming. I am an animal lover and proud owner of a Portuguese Water Dog and 2 cats so stories about animals totally resonate with me. However I think these stories will resonate with all people and really reflect the unconditional love and intuitive nature of animals if we let them in our lives. The author did a great job of making you “feel” her words with real life depictions that relate to all walks of life. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a quick, easy, feel good read.
