From the Author

I am what is commonly referred to as a crazy dog lady. I wasn't always. I was a little girl who loved my cats and was fond of our family dogs, but not in a specific way. Everything changed when my husband and I decided that our boy should have a dog. All we wanted was a mid-size rescue dog. What we got was Buddy Valentine, found on the streets of Oakland, someone's lost or runaway German Shorthaired Pointer.
Buddy was "backyard bred," the rescuer said. Not a fancy-pantsy GSP, but the phrase "that dog will hunt" was meant for him. He spent his days planning escapes to chase after squirrels, cats, ducks, mice, possums. I once saw him sizing up a horse. He was repeatedly skunked, once rolled in the rotting carcass of a seal on the beach, and wouldn't return when called. He was no end of trouble.
But he was utterly and completely devoted to my son. He would sit by the tub as my son splashed in his bath and slept in his bed every night. When my son was sick for a week, our hyperactive dog stayed resolutely by his side the entire time, offering comfort. On every return home, he greeted us carrying his favorite toys.
When Buddy passed away, we buried him in our yard, covering his grave with beautiful stones that we had gathered from our friend's ranch. We grieved. He lives in our hearts.
We've adopted other dogs over the years. Each is special. Each is loved. Each passing is mourned, but the pain of loss cannot compare to all the joy that these animals bring us.
The Dog Thief is my tribute to dogs and to the bond between dogs and humans.
