Excerpt: ”While searching Petfinder.com in May, I found what I considered to be a treasure: Snowy, a deaf, blind, three-year-old, double-merle Sheltie. She was residing in a shelter in Missouri, half a continent away from our home in Pennsylvania, but, despite the distance, I knew she was meant to become a member of our family. I contacted the shelter, only to find out that I was too late. Snowy was being adopted by someone who lived in – can you believe it – Pennsylvania! Hmm, what were the odds of that? In August, I was still thinking about Snowy when I received an email from Northern Chesapeake Sheltie Rescue (NCSR) about two double-merle Shelties they had recently taken in. I didn’t think much about it until, later that week, I saw a post on the NCSR email list asking a question about a blind, deaf female double merle. I brushed aside the stray papers to find Snowy’s picture. My eyes went immediately to her face. Could it be?” -Debbie Bauer

Excerpt: “Angel, a stray who had been abused before I adopted her, has really lived up to her name. I live alone and have multiple sclerosis (MS); Angel is perfect for me because we take care of each other. However, it turns out I’m not the only one she’s watching out for. One night during the wee hours, Angel became restless and woke me up. I rarely go out late at night, but she seemed so anxious that I figured I should take her out. Since she stays by me either on or off the leash, I unhooked her leash so she could do what she needed to do, but instead of going back to the grass, Angel ran into the parking lot and went between two vehicles. When I caught up with Angel, I found her sitting next to one of our tenants, who was lying on the ground in a fetal position with his walker nearby…” -Jan Nashan inspiring compilation about the joy adopted dogs bring to our lives.

Excerpt: “Wrinkles was found in a large pineapple field on the west side of Maui when he was a couple of weeks old. We adopted him, and Wrinkles fit right in with our routine. One day we were watching a friend work on my broken-down car, and when we finally looked up, Wrinkles was missing. At first we didn’t believe that our dog had run away, but after searching for him everywhere around our home, we knew he was gone. We drove my husband’s truck around the neighborhood looking for Wrinkles until exhaustion finally forced us to retire for the night. The next day, I was up with the sun. While readying myself to start searching again, I heard a noise outside. I walked through our back yard and noticed something moving inside my broken car. When I opened the back door, I found…” (You’ll have to read the book to find out!) -Celia Lumsden
