GG’s Journey: From Lost to Loved
by Cheryl Phillips
Rating: 4 paws
This emotional true story is told through the eyes of a young stray dog who has been struggling to survive the streets of Detroit, and ends up in the shelter system. GG is a pit bull mix, starving, sick and ignored. When she is finally rescued, she enters the shelter system only to come up against prejudices and preconceptions about her breed that threaten to derail her chance for a forever home. Fortunately, GG has an advocate who knows that she deserves every chance at happiness.
GG’s lonely journey from desperation to safety is an inspirational tale that shines the light on how every dog just wants to be loved.
15% of the net proceeds of GG’s products will be used to support animal welfare organizations in an effort to end animal homelessness, euthanasia of healthy and treatable pets, exploitation, inhumane treatment and other forms of animal cruelty.

Dogs and Their People: Photos and Stories of Life with a Four-Legged Love
Rating: 5 paws
I dare you to read this book without smiling through the entire thing. This is a collection of some of the most feel-good dog stories ever told. Each short excerpt (they range from 1-3 paragraphs) highlights a dog or dog family, as told by dog pawrents. It is impossible to read this book without smiling, laughing, and loving it. Dog people will identify with many of the stories and thank their lucky stars that their own dogs are not so weird after all. The photos that accompany the stories are captivating, and funny hand-drawn cartoons poke fun throughout the text.
The book spotlights more than 200 dogs, some of them Internet celebs, others just your average Fido, all of them special and unique and loved.
A great book for anybody who has ever loved a dog, but a must-have for dog people (ie: rescuers, groomers, trainers, doggie boutique owners, dog advocates, etc.)
