After losing my precious French bulldog, Louis, I found myself crying daily while perusing petfinder.com looking at dogs. So many filled the pages, and the needs of the organizations caring for them appeared overwhelming. I knew the gifts I made to the local shelter were valuable, but they seemed so small in the face of such great need. I kept thinking of the story of the boy saving dying starfish by throwing them back into the ocean, one at a time, as he walked along the beach. Even though there were so many, and he could only save a few, he did not give up. He knew his efforts mattered to the ones he saved.
So I prayed, “What can I do?”
The idea for this book came to me in a flash of inspiration; write about how we rescue dogs and how they rescue us and make our lives better in return; get other dog lovers to tell their stories, too; donate the profits to several organizations so they can worry less about money and focus on healing, saving, re-homing, and creating better conditions for the animals in their care. It sounded daunting, and yet I knew I could do it and had to do my part.
