The Puppy That Came for Christmas is a very touching story that is, for me, about the different paths that open up when others seem to end. It is also a story of affection - of people for dogs and of dogs for people.
While I think that this story holds a special place on my shelf because I have had dogs (and one of them was a Golden Retriever), this is the kind of story that I think will have a special place for a lot of different readers.
Marley, Oogy, Huck-and now, Traffy, the "forever dog" that changed one couple's life.
All Megan Rix ever wanted was a baby. Yet, month after month, Megan's dreams were dashed. Would her life ever feel complete?
Megan and her husband, Ian, found a surprising answer when they began training golden retriever pups to become service dogs for people with disabilities. But opening their homes and hearts up to Emma, and then Freddy-only to have each move on after six months-eventually took its own toll. Megan and Ian didn't know if they could continue. Then, one Christmas, little Traffy came along ... and stayed. An instant U.K. bestseller, The Puppy That Came for Christmas is a heartwarming and inspirational story that will captivate dog lovers everywhere.
