  1. The book was great, read it in two sittings! I live in Wyoming and my sister lives in Ohio, she bought and had it sent to me. Love to hear about rescued dogs with Loving parents/families. This writing is right up there with my other two favorite books about our dog friends…”Merle’s Door” and “The Art of Racing In the Rain”.
    I think you did a wonderful job with your first non academic publication!
    Don’t know if Julia accepts kisses from strangers, but in case she does, please give her one from me..
    Take Care,

  2. Knowing and working with you,Rich, this book did not surprise me,but delighted both Larry and I. Much gratitude for this heart felt read. As people who have had a profound relationship with our dogs over the years, reading Julia’s story hits it out of the ballpark.Glad to see where life has taken you.Fondly,Elayne
