Format: Paperback
The Lucky Tale of Two Dogs gently educates young readers to the real needs of dogs through a comparison of the lives of two dogs. In this empathetic story, children learn how dogs feel when they are alone all the time, or let loose on the street. It's a story that is told from the point of view of the dog being a dog, not a dog reflecting what people think the dog is thinking and needing. It also debunks the myth of the animal shelter being a bad place, when in fact, our local animal shelters are safe havens for lost or abandoned animals, where they are given a second chance to find loving homes in our communities. I was so touched by this story. If you have a young child at home or have grandchildren like I do, this book is the perfect gift... Adele Douglass, Founder,CEO Humane Farm Animal Care.

"The Lucky Tale of Two Dogs" is an excellent portrayal of the importance of pet responsibility within ownership. It not only hints on pet care and the needs of an animal, but also the outcomes of each pet as it receives these items or if they're neglected. It also displays the emotional experience each animal goes through with regards to the "do's and don'ts" of proper care and being apart of a family rather than an object. This story's illustrations and choice-wording hits an emotional feeling that everyone old & young can relate to and it is very moving. With the generous help of the animal-care workers in the story, the ending turns to a happy one and the minor descriptions of the type of work that is depicted regarding these workers is highly accurate. This is truly a heart-tugging, warm yet lesson-learning storyline that creates emotional connections for all to ponder on and care about. I'd HIGHLY recommend this book!

"As an experienced humane educator, I am always searching for books to use in my programs. This book is amazing. It compares the lives of a dog who is loved by a family and a dog who is neglected. Often, people think of abuse as only hurting animals on purpose, but this book really shows how "unlucky" it can be to have a family that leaves you outside. This story also does an incredible job portraying animal control and the public animal shelter for what they really are: compassionate, life-saving, caring people and places. I've used this book with my middle school TLC (Teaching Love and Compassion) group, and they loved it. There is so much in this book to use as a springboard for great conversations and projects for students of all ages. Thank you Cathy for writing this book!" - Maggie Howe, Education Coordinator, East Bay SPCA

My children and I thoroughly enjoyed this great story. As a shelter director I use my children to review humane education and books regarding animals all the time. The Lucky Tale of two dogs really connected with them as they see these stories play out every day. Animal Services Officers are often, incorrectly, portrayed as the villian in many children's movies and literature. Animals in need are portrayed as being "captured" rather than rescued. My children are always thrilled to see an accurate depiction of the hard work and loving care that our staff offer to animals every day. Well done Cathy!!

Format: Paperback
I am part of an animal rescue group and we are collecting materials to be used in an after school program for children. Our focus will be to teach kindness, animal care and the importance of neuter/spay. BUT we also want to impart to the children what a special thing it is to own a dog (or cat) and how special it is to make them happy and to give them a second chance at a good life. This is a beautiful story and has many messages for the children. Truth to tell, I cried at the end of this sweet tale. We also have one lucky dog and one who became lucky! This excellent book will absolutely become part of the curriculum we will use in our school project.

Format: Paperback
My grandchildren love The Lucky Tale of Two Dogs as do I. The beginning of this delightful tale begins with unforgettable words - "until they all find good homes...". After being in the animal welfare field for almost 40 years, this book is the most comprehensive tool yet in teaching children how to be good pet owners, showing children the joys and responsibilities of having a dog. Contrasting the difference between what responsible owners do and owners who don't provide for the needs of their dog is an excellent way for children to learn the correct way to care for a pet. The illustrations show, in an absolutely delightful way, dogs of mixed linage and both the happiness and sadness on their faces. The kind lady in the shelter tells the potential adoptive family what each dog likes and even explains how to introduce the newly adopted dog to the other dog already in the family. This shows that animal shelters are wonderful places to find that special friend. Emphasizing the importance of veterinary care is excellent. I, along with my children and grandchildren, absolutely love this book and recommend it to any caring parent or grandparent. I bought several to donate to my church library and a library in another state. This book makes a great gift for children, parents, and grandparents.
