I really enjoyed reading this book. I am a huge golden retriever fan!!! But I learned a lot about invisible disabilities and how hard it is for people in the military to get the help they need. I got the opportunity to attend a book signing from the author and Tuesday and they are even better in person!!!
Excellent, heartwarming story. I have been an animal lover my entire life and this book was another fine example of how our canine companions can make such a difference in this world, especially for those who suffer with a disability. Animals offer us their unconditional love and extraordinary capabilities. For this author, his faithful dog enabled him to live a better life despite his physical and emotional hardships from his time spent in the military. I highly recommend this publication.
