A Dog Named Boo
How One Dog and One Woman Rescued Each Other--and the Lives They Transformed Along the WayLarge Print - 2012
Lisa Edwards wandered into a pet shop on Halloween, well aware that the last thing she needed was a dog. But when she laid eyes on Boo, the runt of an abandoned litter, something compelled her to make him her own.
The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a wobbly gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog. He has helped a mute six-year-old to speak, coaxed movement from a paralyzed girl, and stirred life into a ninety-four-year-old nun with Alzheimer's. Ultimately, Boo gave Lisa the greatest gift of all -- faith in herself.
A beautifully written, heartwarming story full of little miracles that speak to the transformative power of animal therapy, A Dog Named Boo tugs at the heartstrings.
