Summary
"Make no bones about it: If a dog rules your home--and your heart--you'll love this compelling, laugh-out-loud, and tear-jerking collection of true stories of some incredible, endearing, and courageous canines. With chapters on Four-Legged Family Members, The Common Bond, Teachers and Healers, and Unconditional Love, For the Love of Dogs reveals the many ways our dogs enrich our lives emotionally, physically, and spiritually. For example, Rocky is a trouble-making Golden Retriever pup who redeems himself when he saves an unsuspecting toddler's life; Hart is a Labrador who helps a traumatized teen find her voice; and Jazz is an agility dog whose fighting spirit and supportive family enabled her to beat her toughest competition--a cancer diagnosis. On the lighter side, there are humorous stories about dogs like Stewie, who was sold to his new owner as a purebred Yorkie. Soon, when this supposed 'toy breed' maxes out at twenty pounds, Stewie reveals his true identity as a $750 mutt. Even so, Stewie's owner doesn't mind the price, the pedigree, or sharing his postage stamp-sized place, because Stewie has captured his heart. For the Love of Dogs is a 'paws'-itively captivating read for anyone who's crazy about canines"--
