Love Unleashed: Tales of Inspiration and the Life-Changing Power of Dogs by Rebecca Ascher-WalshI commented on Instagram last night that Love Unleashed will make dog lovers smile. I smiled often as I read this book, and gushed over how cute all the dogs looked in their photos. But I was often overwhelmed with sadness when I read about the hard lives some of these animals had before finding their forever homes. That sadness was brief, however, because the bulk of each story focused on leading up to their happy endings.
Heres a glimpse at the dogs featured in Love Unleashed:
*Louboutina, a beautiful Golden Retriever who loves to give hugs to everyone she meets
*Hooch, a French Mastiff mix who survived abuse and later earned the American Humane Hero Dog Award for his work as a therapy dog for abused, special needs, and autistic children.
*Freya, a Pit Bull once known as the Worlds Loneliest Dog, who found her forever home after being given a role in a movie.
*Tuna, a Chiweenie famous for his distinctive, toothy grin.
These are just a few examples of the 38 dogs featured in this book... and I fell in love with every single one of them! Each story is accompanied by a few photographs, all of which are simply beautiful.
I could easily have read this book in a single sitting, but I enjoyed it so much that I was reluctant to reach the end. Instead, I read a few stories each day for a week... drawing it out as long as I could. I have no doubt that Ill pull this one off the shelf many times in the future, just so I can fall in love with these dogs all over again.
Between the beautiful photographs and uplifting stories in Love Unleashed, I think its a safe bet that any dog lover would be proud to own this book!
I received an advance review copy of this book courtesy of National Geographic Society via TLC Book Tours.
