Your ‘oohs and aahs’ will change the world.
Read the stories of brave people and see the beautiful portraits of the doggies who have rescued them.
This book has it all. It is real, it is moving, it is for everyone – from artists and art appreciators who will savour smart illustrations, to animal lovers who can marvel at the stories of these wonderful pooches. To anyone who just wants to help change the lives of people who desperately need help.
Inspired by her own life struggle and recovery with the help of her service dog Max, artist Jacqueline Gori birthed this project so others can know the life-changing experience of having a service dog – a furry, four-legged friend who will care for and love their owner. And because with every book purchased all the profits go to National Service Dogs, your support will mean more service dogs go into the homes and hearts of people who desperately need them.
