Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heartwarming and often hilarious, this true story follows a year in the life of Barrie and Dorothy Hawkins, a couple who get more than they bargained for when they decide to rescue and foster orphan dogs. Each canine arrival has a surprise in store: Monty has a taste for cheese; Oscar has never been walked or played with, but he develops a new zest for life at age 12; and Digby, an enormous guard dog, is a squasher—if hes not squashing the daisies, he is squashing Barries foot. Always game, Barrie and Dorothy welcome all the dogs that come into their hearts and home, doing whatever it takes to change the dogs' lives—and their own in the process.

Synopsis:

Barrie and Dorothy Hawkins don't quite realize what they are getting themselves into when they take on the challenge of rescuing and fostering orphan dogs. Every canine character has a surprise in store; among them are Monty, the dog with a taste for cheese; Oscar, who has never been walked or played with but finds a new zest for life at the age of twelve; and Digby, the enormous ex-guard dog who, when hes not squashing daisies, is squashing Barries foot. Barrie and Dorothy welcome them all into their hearts and home, doing whatever it takes to change the dogs' lives for the better—and in the process changing their own lives, too.
