In Pippa's Journey: Tail-Wagging Tales of Rescue Dogs, award-winning outdoors writer Robert Montgomery and six authors describe their relationships with beloved dogs. Each story celebrates the tangible and intangible blessings we derive from canine companions.When Robert Montgomery was ready for another dog, he went to a no-kill shelter to adopt a pup. None were available. Saddened, he almost went home empty-handed. Instead, he decided to take a chance. He chose a medium-size, mixed breed dog who spent the first two years of her life at the shelter and seemed destined to live out her days there. In adopting Pippa, Montgomery thought he knew what to expect, since almost everything in the outside world would be new to her. But he didn't know the half of it. In the following weeks, months, and years he and Pippa learned many things together--and they're still learning. Pippa not only bonded with the author, she blossomed into a remarkable companion who loves and protects her human. As Montgomery often tells friends, "Every day she makes me smile." In part two of Pippa's Journey, Robert invited other authors to share their stories. Each of these tales celebrates the tangible and intangible blessings of loving lost, abandoned, and homeless dogs who "rescued" them. As a bonus, Robert includes valuable information about shelters, adopting dogs, and bonding with a new canine friend. Heartwarming, insightful, and sometimes funny, the moving and beautifully crafted stories in Pippa's Journey remind us that dogs offer unconditional warmth, love, joy, and companionship.
