Do you believe in second chances? Real Dogs Don't Whisper book is about second chances and miracles. Special needs dogs teach their human about life and how to believe and live in the moment. At times hysterical, tear-jerking, always enthralling, Real Dogs Don't Whisper is more than a book about dogs it is a book about life. Real Dogs Don't Whisper is about rescue dogs that were ready to be given up on because they have special needs. It is about how these specail four taught their human, Kelly, about life. Real Dogs Don't Whisper: Life Lessons from a Larger than Life Dog! (and his Owner), is the true story of a remarkable family as told in a unique way by both Kelly Preston, the owner of the household, and her spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso, Mr. MaGoo. Kelly, Mr. MaGoo, Buffy, Carla Mae, and Betty Boop. A girl, her two Lhasa Apsos, one Cocker Spaniel, and one adorable mutt - each with their own challenging set of difficulties to overcome. One puppy has serious neurological disorders. Two were severely abused. All are on a journey of discovery. Together, learning love and patience along the way, they have grown and thrived. And perhaps none so much as the girl.
My take on this book:
As an animal lover, I am especially partial to dogs, so this book really touched a chord within me.First of all I had to smile when I realized that a dog co-authored this book, but boy does Mr. Magoo and Kelly Preston know how to weave a story that grabs the readers heart and hold it for the entire book. It is rare that a book can have my emotions all over the place, but this one certainly tugged at my heart, but also had me smiling on several occasions. It takes a special person to tackle a special needs animal, but Kelly Preston did it and not only was her life richer for it, but she passes on to the reader the wonderful story of her adventures while taking care of her special dogs, allowing us to glimpse the love they shared. Anyone who has ever loved a pet will want to read this one, but more than that it's a story that reminds us of second chances and unconditional love. On a scale of one to five this book deserves at least a ten because it's just that good! I would love to read more from this author! Highly recommended.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say this is one of the most touching stories I have read in quite some time.
