There's a reason we call them our best friends. The reason is love. Uncomplicated, unconditional, always available love. That's what dogs give us. The stories in ANGEL DOGS: DIVINE MESSENGERS OF LOVE attest to the awesome power of that love, and to the often astonishing, perhaps miraculous events that love can lead to. They also introduce you to some remarkable characters, including: Hershey, a "cell dog" who transforms a bitter prisoner into a caring, compassionate man; Haley, a service dog who helps a thirteen-year-old girl get through radiation therapy; Poni, a frightened puppy who becomes brave enough to battle a rattlesnake; Bonnie, a golden retriever who brings new life to an elderly couple; Cpl. J.R., a Jack Russell terrier who helps a Marine honor a fallen soldier; Tequila, a matchmaking collie who creates a couple and saves a family; Temujin, a 150-lb mastiff who teaches his owner how to find the spirituality he seeks; Casey, A Shetland sheepdog who chooses a different line of work: cheering up nursing home patients; Taylor, the authors' own dog, who "writes" the sage advice column that ends each chapter.
