Meet the Dogs

Dogs are my favorite people. Most of my dogs lived a long time and their stories are as unique and complicated as my own except they didn’t care a whit about retirement or paying the mortgage despite my efforts to get them jobs. Here are some of their stories and how they made me laugh and despair especially when I’d remember they wouldn’t live as long as I needed them to.

Shelter Heroes

There are over 3,500 animal shelters in the US as of 2022. There are also more than 14,000 rescue groups. Nearly a million shelter animals are euthanized every year. In 2011, it was nearly three million. This massive decrease in shelter deaths is due to the commitment of thousands of folks who work in shelters and rescues.

My book is dedicated to the shelter and rescue workers and volunteers who have stemmed the tide of needless death and changed millions of lives. I couldn’t have written this book without them.
