Prison inmate Keith trained Daisy from Monday to Friday, author Sharron took care of her during the weekends to socialize her and get her used to every day life. A bit like sharing custody after divorce.
It may sound simple, but for Sharron visiting the prison twice a week to pick up Daisy and bring her back was quite an experience. The only contact she had with Keith was about Daisy. As they got to know each other better, she wanted to know what had landed him in prison. Accidentally she found out that he was 16 years old when he committed a crime. Although he did not kill anyone, he was tried as an adult and sentenced to forty years in prison. Forty years!
In the beginning Sharron found the idea of giving Daisy up very difficult. She hoped the dog would not pass the NEADS-exam and could stay with her. And then she realized what it would mean to Keith if Daisy failed. So she too became determined not to let this happen. And then came Memorial Day...
Let me just say that it's a great book, well written, it will make you laugh and cry and think. Buy the book; it's well worth the money and part of the proceeds will be donated to NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Services).
