Dog Tales – Heart-warming tales of rescue dogs who rescued their owners right back

 

‘Maybe these animals are angels in disguise? It often seems like the right owner and that special dog came into each other’s lives at the perfect time for a miracle to occur. Each provides joy, healing, patience, courage, gratitude and of course unconditional love – the perfect virtues often missing in society.’

 

Dog Tales contains 13 heart-warming stories of dogs that have been given a second chance at happiness and of the dedicated owners who found a place in their hearts and homes for the abandoned and often traumatised animals. These unique and often heartbreaking tales touch on all the ways dogs impact on our lives and poignantly capture the bond between human and canine. Filled with touching stories of love, loss and transformation these dog tales will uplift your soul, as you laugh, cry and fall in love with these amazing animals who often rescue their new owners right back.

 

We meet Penney the pit bull, abandoned at her most vulnerable but who found love with a couple who take her everywhere- even to work. There is Skittles, a terrified Shih Tzu who is rescued from a puppy farm but finds love and canine companionship with Jay, a large bearded Collie and we hear how a three-legged dog called Mick taught Andrea life lessons about living in the moment and thriving despite health challenges.

 

Andrea also reveals how working with dogs has helped her on her own journey through chronic pain and fertility issues and how the dogs she has encountered have touched her life in different ways, often when she needed it most.

 

‘A powerful book no animal lover will be able to resist. Andrea’s tender tales of human-canine connection will touch your soul and remind you of why dogs play such central roles in the lives of their human companions. Her passionate advocacy for those neglected, forgotten creatures their owners failed will make you want to open your heart and home to one of your own.’ John Grogan, author of Marley & Me

About the Book

 

This transformative, enlightening, and inspiring book is a must-read for anyone who has acute or chronic pain or who is recovering from illness. Andrea’s uplifting account of changing her life will provide encouragement and support to those struggling to cope, and her daily relaxation hypnosis will be a great tool for those trying to restore balance and wellness into their day to day life.

 

Her compelling and candid story of life with constant pain is an insightful and thought-provoking read for family, friends, and loved ones who want to support and understand the daily struggle of life with an invisible illness.

 

Andrea_[Hospital-Pic-262px]This deeply personal and refreshingly honest book chronicles Andrea’s life story and her search for answers to her elusive and mysterious constant pain, from hospital to hospital, misdiagnosis, and many different doctors. Her journey of pain begins in childhood after suffering severe meningitis, and sees her travel to specialists in London and New York, until a final diagnosis of a rare brain disorder called Chiari Malformation 1 forced her to take time off work and focus on her health. What started as a three-month break from her TV career leads her on a life-altering journey. Having attended two in-house specialist pain management programmes in hospital, Andrea decided to create her own wellness plan and for the first time go public with her secret pain.

 

Andrea’s innermost thoughts are recorded in intimate accounts from her private diary. After her diagnosis, Andrea took time off work to embark on her journey of healing. On her road to wellness, she realized that she can no longer hide the pain, but to find a place of peace she must deal with the deep anger and despair she has, and deal with her emotions.  Andrea’s frankness and candor may prove to be eye opening for many but for those battling the reality of chronic pain her words will inspire and resonate. From tears of pain to tears of joy, her deeply honest daily diary entries provide often a humorous insight into life in a world of daily pain.
