Booklist Reviews 2009 November #1

In this beautifully illustrated, uplifting book, author Lufkin and photographer Diana Walker team up again to tell the stories of rescued dogs (and one cat). Like their previous books (Found Dogs, 1997; Second Chances, 2005), this one presents a collection of essays about rescued dogs, illustrated with black-and-white photos. The dogs' stories are told in the first person by their owners, revealing what is known of their backgrounds and what they are doing today. All of the dogs are workers—some as therapy dogs for hospice patients, mental patients, or children in read-to-the-dog programs; others are search-and-rescue dogs or assistance dogs. We read of abused dogs who learned to overcome their traumatic pasts, amputees that bring hope to wounded soldiers, and timid dogs that have blossomed into love sponges. Their owners often tell of how the dogs have changed their lives or the lives of others. Photojournalist Walker's snapshots show each dog doing what he or she does best. Oh, and that one cat? She's a double amputee who loves to visit hospice patients and is a wonderful listener when she's read to. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2009 October #2

Those of us who have rescued dogs know that the dogs finally rescue us, something Lufkin has already detailed in two moving compilations, Found Dogs and Second Chances. Her new book goes one step further, chronicling formerly abused or abandoned canines now doing service—performing search and rescues (SAR), helping the blind or wheelchair-bound, and bringing joy while visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons. Each dog gets his or her own story, illustrated with an affecting black-and-white shot, and the stories are all remarkable. Bailey was nearly dead from starvation when rescued but is now certified for SAR, doing his first big job at the Pentagon after 9/11. Amputee Gracie helps soldiers at the Walter Reed Hospital, and Marvin, who was literally on the table to be euthanized, is now the Rhode Island SPCA's mascot and travels regularly to hospitals, day-care centers, and, yes, libraries. VERDICT Not just for dog lovers, this book should be read by anyone giving or needing care—you'll get hope and answers. Read it and be humbled.—Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
