The Day My Life Went to the Dogs is a group of connecting stories filled with the humor, pathos, and richness pets bring to us. The book is illustrated throughout with wonderful cartoons that catch the personality of every pet. Judy starts with an introduction of who she is, the influences of some of the people who helped shape her character, and why she sees things as she does.
In the beginning, she provides the back story of her drive to own a dog. Next, she gets her first puppy, and so the stories begin. She takes you through the ongoing changes in her life as a succession of pets entered and left her heart and home through the years. From injured rescues to orphans, canines to avians, she relates how she began to understand the differences in each pet and how to integrate them into her family. The chapters explore how the group dynamics proved ever changing with each new addition or loss. The culmination of these tales comes together in the final chapter “Things I've Learned from my Pets,” a collection of useful maxims, anecdotes, and learnings, based on the thirty years of experience and adventures that come with pet ownership.
The book is available from Amazon in both print and ebook versions. PLEASE NOTE... For each book sold, I will contribute a portion of the proceeds to NOAHS ARKS Animal Rescue. Your purchase of my book will not only benefit you, but will help this rescue carry on with their wonderful work.
