I received a copy of SECOND-CHANCE DOGS: TRUE STORIES OF THE DOGS WE RESCUE AND THE DOGS WHO RESCUE US from Revell.  It is edited by Callie Smith Grant.

This is a heart-warming collection of short stories about dogs.  These are dogs who have lived troubled lives, but have been rescued by loving humans.  In turn, the dogs have rescued those humans by enriching their loves through never-ending love.  More times than I can count, I had tears in my eyes.  Many of the stories reminded me of my uncle.  He’s rescued multiple dogs and has cherished each one.  I’m passing this book along to him now that I’ve enjoyed it.

You won’t be able to stop after reading one of these stories.  Their raw honesty and beauty will suck you in.  This is a must for dog lovers.

As a side note, the stories are written by well-known authors.  It was a treat to see essays in here by some of my favorite Christian authors.
