Book review: Every Dog Has a Gift (Rachel McPherson)

Via on Jun 24, 2010

Every Dog Has a Gift is a collection of vignettes about dogs and their relationships they build with humans. These often inspirational stories detail the many ways companion canines work with a variety of individuals: autistics to the physically disabled to others dealing with grief, depression, or PTSD.

Included with the stories is a list of resources and organizations as well as suggestions and guidelines designed to enable the reader to get involved with any of the numerous service and therapy dog organizations across the country, whether as a consumer or as a possible provider of services.

From Tarcher/Penguin books and available from your locally-owned, independent bookstore. (Shop local, shop independent, and tell ‘em you saw it on Elephant Journal!)
